Publisher Comments:

Being one of the guys isn't all it's cracked up to be…

So when journalist Chastity O'Neill returns to her hometown, she decides it's time to start working on some of those feminine wiles. Two tiny problems: #1—she's five feet eleven inches of rock-solid girl power, and #2—she's cursed with four alpha male older brothers.

While doing a story on local heroes, she meets a hunky doctor and things start to look up. Now there's only one problem: Trevor Meade, her first love and the one man she's never quite gotten over—although he seems to have gotten over her just fine.

Yet the more time she spends with Dr. Perfect, the better Trevor looks. But even with the in-your-face competition, the irresistible Trevor just can't seem to see Chastity as anything more than just one of the guys.…

Review:

"Nearly six feet tall, newspaper editor Chastity 'Chas' O'Neill can hold her own with her four firefighter brothers, whose bravery is legendary in their upstate New York hometown. But at age 31, she's tired of being one of the guys and ready to fall in love and add more babies to the family brood. Too bad firefighter Trevor Meade, whom she's adored since childhood, only thinks of her as a friend. By this point — about page 16 — romance readers will know exactly where this is heading, but Higgins (Catch of the Day) enlivens the journey with subplots including a handsome surgeon who falls for Chas, the unpredictable relationship between her divorced parents and attempts by an ambitious receptionist to undermine her position at the newspaper. There's also plenty of slapstick humor that ranges from amusingly ribald to uncomfortably coarse. Still, Higgins provides an amiable romp that ends with a satisfying lump in the throat." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Newspaper editor Chastity O'Neil goes online looking for love, but must admitto herself that Trevor Meade, the man she's loved since she was 12 years old, is the one she truly wants. Original.

Love this book...Funny and witty I found myself smiling and laughing out loud when Chas would find herself in a situation only a girl raised with boys would truly understand...I Highly recommend this book :0)
