Merry came to Jackson, Wyoming to work on preserving and restoring the ghost town Providence.
Shane is in town to fight for his inheritance. He got the land, now he wants the money.
Merry and Shane are at odds. He knows this, she doesn’t. She thinks he just a carpenter and hires him to restore Providence. Shane wants information from Merry in order to fight for his money. Money that Merry needs to restore Providence.
Somewhere along the way, it all went wrong. Shane is falling for Merry and Merry is falling for Shane. What will happen when Merry finds out the truth?
Too Hot to Handle is a decent story about finding your way in life. Merry has been looking for her place in life. She looking for where she belongs. She thinks she’s found it in Jackson Wyoming. Shane is looking for a way to get his money from the Historical Society. He’s angry and bitter.
Shane and Merry both learned something about themselves in this story. It was a bit predictable but it was still enjoyable. I could see what was going to happen long before it did. There was only one real surprise in the story, Shane’s dad. Everything else just fell in place like I thought it would.
One of the nice things about this story was Shane. He wasn’t a chest thumping alpha male. Now, I like a good alpha male but sometimes it’s nice to have men in stories that aren’t He-Man types. He was a nice guy and while the sex between Shane and Merry was hot, it wasn’t over the top. It was normal people sex.
I definitely enjoyed the story. Victoria Dahl has managed to weave an enjoyable story about two people finding their place in life.
