The Things She Says - Kat Cantrell (HD #2218 - Mar 2013)

Her Knight in a Shining Yellow Ferrari

One wrong turn on a Texas highway and heartthrob director Kristian Demetrious is breaking his first rule: don't get involved. Beautiful, sassy VJ Lewis needs his help-and a ride to Dallas. Kris wants to give her both....

Yet his career depends on arriving without giving in to the passion VJ ignites in him. And denying temptation gets harder with every mile. VJ insists the heart of a hero beats beneath Kris's suave exterior-and she intends to prove it, one hands-on lesson at a time.

Suddenly this road trip is taking a whole new direction....

Very good book.  I really liked both VJ and Kris.  VJ is from a small town in Texas and can't wait to get away to something better.  When she comes across Kris lost on the back roads she is immediately attracted to him.  She leads him back to her town where he can get something to eat before he heads on his way.  She sees something in him that tells her that he's not as emotionless as he appears.  When she finds out that he doesn't believe in love she is determined to show him that it does,  Kris is stunned by her beauty and the way that she is so frank with him.  When she needs his help he is more than happy to give it.  

I loved the way that VJ can see past the walls that Kris has put up to protect himself.  She is convinced that there is more to him than he lets on and uses her time with him to prove it to him.  She really fell for him very quickly and couldn't help seeing a happy ending for them, in spite of the fact that he kept telling her that he would be headed back to LA in a few days.  I loved the way that she pointed out to him when she saw him trying to put the walls back up.  She had a great way of saying things that would surprise him and bring him out of the moods he would get in.  I also liked the way that she stood up for herself against Kyla and the paparazzi, and then wanted to do whatever was needed to help his dream come true.

Kris was an interesting guy.  Besides his Greek hotness that appealed so quickly to VJ, he was basically a nice guy.  When her brothers tried to intimidate her he jumped in ready to protect her, and when she had to get away he immediately gave her the ride she needed.  He was in the habit of keeping his emotions under a tight lid because of the abuse he saw his father inflict on his mother.  So he refused to believe that real love existed.  When he met VJ and she tried to convince him of her point of view he was amused at first.  He found that she quickly got under his skin but knew he had to resist her in order to get the financing he needed for his movie.  I loved seeing him as he would start to loosen up and then back off.  But he just couldn't stay that way.  I loved the ending when he realized that it was her love that was most important.  The epilogue was fantastic showing what was possible when you believe.
