JC books are quirky & have an assortment of characters and this is no less. The heroine & her younger sister come into town to shoot a video with a dubious star, it is a change for them since they always shoot weddings & their welcome is marred by an accident with a stuffy old man & his wife and the heroine who knows small towns & comes from a family of cons knows that things will not be great for them ahead.
The hero is a mayor only because it is a family legacy but is thoroughly bored by the job, all his town people are stuffy & orthodox & all his mother thinks about is getting him married.
There are crazy accidents, a responsible heroine cutting loose after years of trying to deny her wild genes, a con man brother wanting to beat the hero, a porn movie being made & all crazy drama that makes Cruise's books so wonderful.
Her romance always doesn't take the sweet & light part & this is no less, they are complete opposites for each other & yet so right.
Loved it & read it late into the night.
