Good Story and Characters

The Rule Maker - Jennifer Blackwood

Zoey loved cars for the sole reason it had become her command station, her Batmobile that could answer emails, texts, and memos at voice command. Zoey is an interior decorator.  Zoey was choking on a Reeses peanut butter cup and finally slammed against her steering wheel and dislodged the candy.  There was an email from Jason Covington. Zoey had slept with her client’s brother Ryder and she cursed that night. Zoey remembers how he snuck out during the night without an explanation and then never called her. Ryder was a professional snowboarder and was home while he recuperated from a broken leg. Ryder had a rule never to date or sleep with anyone more than once. Zoey pulled up to the one of many ski resorts on Mt. Rainier. Zoey was to do the renovations on this resort and it had been left in the seventies. Nothing made Zoey happier then having her mind busy with plans for a new project. All she had to do was create mock-ups that would blow Jason Covington’s mind. Then Zoey got stuck in the window but knew Jason had one of his men coming up. Zoey then heard a voice she couldn’t forget and  sure enough it was Ryder. Then man she had slept with. Jason- Ryder’s brother had been paralyzed from the waist down and wasn’t doing too well since the accident and now Ryder was her client and she had  to work with him through the whole project. Normally it would have been Jason as he was the head of the family’s real estate company. Zoey tries to get out of the project but Ryder said Jason wouldn’t be happy. Zoey had taken the second job from Jason as she knew it was good for her company as well as her career.  Then a sudden snow storm occurs and Ryder and Zoey are stuck at the resort for the night. First thing the next morning Zoey leaves. Both Ryder and Zoey are leery of each other but both for different reasons. Zoey fought her feelings for Ryder.

I liked this story a lot. It made me laugh out loud and that doesn’t happen very often at least not from a book. This is a fun romance that gave Ryder and Zoey a second chance with each other. But Zoey and Ryder made each other crazy as they tried to fight the attraction. But I will say that this story kept my attention from the very beginning to the very end. I love how Jason and Ryder are with each other. But this story was a little predictable. At first I really didn’t like Ryder for the way he treated Zoey but as time went on my opinion changed of him. But Ryder was also worried about his future after the broken leg. This dragged a bit at times but I still really enjoyed the story. I loved the plot, characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.
