What what whaaaaaaaaaat??!!! Well I NEVER! Er… well, actually yeah, I’ve read this sort of thing before, and done right, usually ends up being a book I LOVE like crazy. But I’m not sure I know this one, specifically.

Leah asks:

“Maryse, I can’t remember the title to this book!

I believe it was a romantic suspense, possibly military. The H was injured and in need of therapy, I believe physical. His therapist was not attractive to him at first but they started spending time together and he fell for her.

I believe he made a comment about her not being pretty to his friends, but she was ok to sleep with.

Thanks for any help!!”

*gasp!!!!* What a… UGHHHHH!!! Sounds like he’s quite the charmer! Ugh. LOL!!!

And yet… sometimes (at least when it comes to books), those *ahem* “heroes” are the most fun ones to finally fall in love with, ’cause it wasn’t easy. ;)

Okay so… does anyone know this one?

Chris: I thought of an oldie but goodie. “Nothing But Trouble (Chinooks Hockey Team Book 5) by Rachael Gibson. The H was a hockey star and the h needed money and became his personal assistant after he had a bad car accident, and fire a few before her. He was a jerk to her at first. And he called her plain and chubby.

Sherry: Sort of sounds like The Vixen and the Vet (a modern fairytale).

Tessa: It does sound like that one!

Lauren: Seducing Cinderella (A Fighting for Love Novel Book 1) by Gina Maxwell? Sounds kinda like it but he helps her…..gets her hair cut & styled, new, less drab clothes, plucked her horrible eyebrows, etc….He helps her with her crush on a Dr & she helps him with his injury (she’s a physical therapist). I don’t remember if he actually told people how bad she looked, he thought it to himself though.

Melanie: Sounds a bit like Perfection (A Neighbor From Hell Series Book 2) by R.L. Mathewson.

I don’t think any of these were what I was thinking of. It was several years ago, and may have had a tiny bit of magic in it, making the therapist more attractive as he fell for her.

Where You Least Expect (Thornehill Springs #1)
by Lydia Rowan
He is military, she is his neighbor with low self esteem and he insults her to his friends in a restaurant where she is also there.
