Book 3 of Sullivan's Creek Romance
Contemporary Romance

When her father's heart problems sideline him, Shae Harriman agrees to oversee Sullivan's Creek, the largest residential building project the company has ever tackled. Though she has the education, her lack of management or supervisory experience, alienates her crews. Megastar singer Ned Collier undertook Sullivan's Creek to get his mother into safer housing while he is on the road. But he's running out of money and doesn't want her, or anyone else, to know. To Shae's consternation, he insists on serving as project manager to control costs. Their inexperience, pitted against her desire to succeed, his penny-pinching, and high stakes construction issues propel them into each other's arms. Can they build a life, as well as housing, together?

You've got to be tough to make it as a woman in the male-dominated construction industry, and Shae Harriman holds her own in TOUGH ENOUGH TO TANGO.

When Shae Harriman takes over the day to day operations of her family's general contracting business, she's not prepared to face someone like megastar singer Jake Bonneville, aka Ned Collier. Her first major client and the man who will ultimately make or break her career, Ned is a serious PITA. He's demanding and frustratingly frugal and so dammed sexy. It's a good thing Shae has little experience with men, otherwise she'd be falling under his spell like every other woman out there! It'll take more than willpower to see his project to completion though. Is their new relationship tough enough to tango?

TOUGH ENOUGH TO TANGO is book 2 in the Sullivan's Creek Series and can be read as a stand alone. Beyond the minuscule chemistry between the MC's, they both are seriously unlikeable. Shae was a know-it-all beyotch while Ned was just too stupid for words. She was bitchy and rude throughout the entire story, and he couldn't find a $5 bill duct-taped to his own hand.

Apart from their horrendous personalities, the storyline was banal and dull and truly didn't make much sense to me. A woman who's never worked on-site suddenly in charge of a gazillion dollar construction project vs. a broke celebrity who thinks he can play at being the boss of said construction project. Not only would this just NOT happen in real life, it shouldn't even happen in a book.

Bottom Line: Skip this longwinded read, but if you have to read it, then just skip to the sex scenes.
