Simone plans to spend her postgraduation summer painting, taking care of her great-aunt, and working in an art gallery - not mud wrestling and giving her first time to the yard boy.
In this new adult contemporary romance with sex, of innocence lost, Simone discovers the real meaning of high class and how her feelings can sweep her away.
The glamorous artist or the down to earth hunk who makes a living cutting grass?
Four-year college degree in hand, Simone goes to stay with her great-aunt. Free room and board in exchange for taking care of the elderly lady while she's sick. Simone can paint in the day, work at the local art gallery in the evenings. She escapes her mother and stepfather.
While she figures out how to advance into the world of fine art, meeting and marrying a wealthy, successful artist.
And saving her first time innocence for him.
She soon meets Brett. True, his paintings look ...odd - downright horrific. Simone accompanies him to his friend's parties. Lots of weirdos, but what can go wrong?
Terry Leonard wants to expand his lawn care business. He and his buddy Cal can cut only so many yards every day. He understands the real money is in adding many more services. Calling himself a landscaper. Buying more equipment. Hiring more laborers.
His best lawn cutting customer, Mrs. Garrett - Simone's great-aunt - hires him to renovate his entire yard. His biggest job. His hope for cash to expand, and referrals from Mrs. Garrett's friends.
Simone meets Terry when his lawn mowers raise dust that ruins her painting.
Yet, she doesn't fail to notice his big, outdoor-work hardened muscles. Or his handsome - nearly cute - face.
Terry falls for his customer's great-niece right away, but understands a high class woman doesn't want a man who cuts grass.
Worse, Terry's relationship history consists of a long series of one-night stands. He enjoys sampling every woman, but never goes back for seconds.
Not even with his father's fiance.
His overpowering attraction for Simone disturbs him when he realizes he wants her for life. But can that feeling survive their first sexual encounter?
Besides, she wouldn't give up her innocence to the son of a rich lawyer, so why should she let a mere lawn boy her?
A new adult contemporary romance of two people in their early 20's learning about the world, themselves, and each other. And what adult love means for them.
