Cutting Loose by Susan Andersen

Book Description:
Jane thinks nothing can make her lose her cool.
But the princess of propriety blows a gasket the night she meets the contractor restoring the Wolcott mansion. Devlin Kavanagh’s rugged sex appeal may buckle her knees, but the man is out of control! Jane had to deal with theatrics growing up — she won’t tolerate them in someone hired to work on the house she and her best friends have just inherited.
Dev could renovate the mansion in his sleep. But ever since the prissy owner spotted him jet-lagged, exhausted and hit hard by a couple of welcome-home drinks, she’s been on his case. Yet there’s something about her. Jane hides behind conservative clothes and a frosty manner, but her seductive blue eyes and leopard-print heels hint at a woman dying to cut loose!Jane thinks nothing can make her lose her cool.

Review:
One of the things I like about this book was the Hero. Dev is not a cop or in the military, he is just a regular guy who comes home from Europe to help with the family business while his brother is battling cancer. Jane was a good heroine having survived her less than wonderful childhood she has some hang ups that Dev helps her with.
This starts the trilogy featuring Jane and her two childhood friends Poppy and Ava. By the end of this book you kinda know who Poppy's hero is going to be, but we have to wait until next summer to see for sure. The one thing I didn't like about this book is that you also get the point of view of the bad guy, which I didn't really enjoy. So instead of 4 stars I'm going to give it 3.75.
Rating 3.75
