Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis

Here is yet another new to me author and while it was good, it wasn't spectacular. I decided to try out this author because many of my book friends online really seem to like her and this book seemed to do well and is the first in a series. I enjoyed the premise of the story--well, heres the back cover: Accountant Katie Kramer is a quintessential good girl—working hard, recycling diligently, all the while trying to ignore the feeling that she doesn’t fit in anywhere. That’s all she wants. Well, that—and amazing sex, and the kind of daredevil escapade she can look back on when she’s crunching numbers in a dusty cubicle. Which explains why she just took a job in Wishful, California, working for Wilder Adventures and Expeditions. Waking up to find a magnificently built stranger towering over her bed—that part defies explanation…

After wandering the planet for months following a life-changing accident, Cameron Wilder has come back to the only home he knows. Under other circumstances, he might be thrilled to find a gorgeous woman sleeping in his cabin, but now, while he’ll risk his body taking clients on adrenaline-drenched excursions, his heart is off limits. Still, Katie’s killer smile triggers something deep in his gut…among other places. Showing her how exhilarating it can be to stop balancing her life as if it was a checkbook is the biggest rush he’s ever felt—and an adventure Katie’s wishing would never end...

I guess from reading that I sort of expected more, especially in the steaminess area. I mean, it took over half the book for them to finally get together, and while that is fine, I guess I thought it would happen sooner. Overall I give this three and a half stars. I enjoyed reading it but I found myself easily distracted and not in a hurry to get back. I have the next book, Instant Gratification, on my wish list at PBS to read so hopefully that one will be better for me. I also have a few other Jill Shalvis novels on my list to try out as well....maybe they will fill that void I felt this one left better because she gets many positive reviews and I usually just fall in line!
