Sometimes love comes in a package we least expect to find it in. Tony Sherman may be a modern day Adonis and a well-known ladies' man, but hiding beneath his carefree, playboy persona is a man who knows how to be discreet. He keeps his desire to protect all those he loves from being seen by anyone, particularly his family. Fate intervenes when he uses his charm to beg a favor from a co-worker, a woman as unaffected by his charisma as she is by his looks. Haven Pelletier is anything but the kind of woman usually found on Tony's arm or in his bed. She's mousy and rubenesque, unmoved by his Adonis appearance. But when circumstances bring them together, she sees right through his tarnished armor—to the true man underneath. As Haven learns more about Tony, she discovers a man who might just steal her heart if she lets him. Can Tony be the knight in shining armor Haven needs? Or will the secrets in his past keep them both from finding happiness?
Tony's Haven is a great read with a fantastic hero. Tony is just the right mixture of “too good to be true” and flawed man making him a near-perfect leading man. I wanted to hate him a little at the beginning of the book but his charm won me over long before it did Haven. Our heroine was easy to relate to and even though I really enjoyed her solid personality, I think I enjoyed her so-called flaws even more so. I loved the Sherman family and all of Tony and Haven’s coworkers as every character was well developed and added to the story. I will say I did find it frustrating that at a size 18 our heroine was considered so surprisingly big and I found it a sad commentary on the way society thinks but was so very happy to see that it really had no impact on Tony’s attraction to her. This author’s tone and style kept me highly entertained and I cannot wait to see what else she has to offer as I love reading stories that have me laughing out loud.
