A Good-Lookin’ Man by Marcia Lynn McClure
However, in an instant—in less than a breath or the bat of an eyelid—the elusive pepper spray hiding somewhere in her purse was all but forgotten. For standing before her—right there before her, not three feet away—was the best-looking, most gorgeous, handsomest man she had ever seen in all her life!
“No, seriously,” she thought out loud with lingering bewilderment at how perfectly stunning the man standing before her was, wearing a worn pair of Levi’s, dusty cowboy boots, and a short-sleeved, plaid-print, snap-up shirt that hung open, revealing a bronzed, perfectly sculpted torso that was simply a mass of muscles. She was so unsettled by the man’s appearance that she wasn’t sure whether she was whispering aloud to herself or her car.
Either way, the man asked, “Beg your pardon, ma’am?”
“Oh…oh, nothing,” Fairlee said as she began rummaging in her purse again. But the man’s presence and appearance had entirely rattled her. As her awe-inspired brain obviously quit sending out instructions to the rest of her body, Fairlee felt her purse slip from her hands—watched in humiliated dismay as its contents tumbled out and scattered over the shoulder of the road.
Marcia Lynn McClure’s intoxicating succession of novels, novellas, and e-books, has established her as one of the most favored and engaging authors of true romance. Her unprecedented forte in weaving captivating stories of western, medieval, regency, and contemporary amour void of brusque intimacy has earned her the title “The Queen of Kissing.”
Marcia, who was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has spent her life intrigued with people, history, love, and romance. A wife, mother, grandmother, family historian, poet, and author, Marcia Lynn McClure spins her tales of splendor for the sake of offering respite through the beauty, mirth, and delight of a worthwhile and wonderful story.
A GOOD LOOKIN’ MAN is wonderful, cute love story that showcases Marcia Lynn McClure‘s sense of humor. It is laugh out loud funny and the characters are Southern precious.
Fairlee is on her way to visit her beloved aunt and uncle when her unreliable car breaks down five miles from the farm. Aside from wondering how she is going to get there, other than walking the five miles, her sense of balance is swayed as she looks up into the face of the most beautiful man she has ever laid eyes on.
As she is sifting through the spilled contents of her purse, in an attempt to find her canister of pepper spray, the stranger holds it up and asks if that was what she was looking for.
“Were you looking for this, by any chance?” he asked. “Huh?” Fairlee breathed, still hypnotized by his physical charms. She looked down at what he held in his hand in offering to her, blushing to the very tips of her toes when she saw her elusive little canister of pepper spray. “Um…yes, thank you,” she said, accepting the pepper spray. “I mean, no, no…of course not! I mean…thank you.”
Fairlee has a habit of talking to herself, not realizing she’s speaking out loud and it makes for some extremely embarrassing and funny stories. The book will keep you chuckling and turning the pages to see what will come flying out of the damsel in distress‘ mouth.
And, throw in Aunt Pearl’s advice, and life and love just take on a whole new meaning. “I do know,” Aunt Pearl confirmed. “And that there is a number one clue that you’re with the wrong man. If he can’t ruffle your bloomers when he kisses you, then you might as well not waste your time.”
I am giving the book five stars, not because it was a deep, thought-provoking book (it wasn’t), but for its humor. Reading A GOOD LOOKIN’ MAN was like sitting down to watch a comedy and it was quite enjoyable.
