Widower Joel Hubbard isn’t interested in his friends’ attempts to fix him up. He’s content with his quiet, structured life as a single dad until he wanders into Gwen Marconi’s real estate office and discovers everything he never knew he was missing in his life. Gwen has a knack for attracting womanizers, losers and jerks. From what she can tell, Joel isn’t any of those things. In fact, he’s everything she ever wanted in a man and it starts her thinking she’s finally found herself a keeper. Just when it looks like she’s found a place of her own in his heart, she’s forced to rethink their future together when a cruel stroke of fate brings her happiness crashing down. How can she put the man she loves through the same nightmare a second time?
Have a house to sell? Ask for Gwen Marconi. Have a heart longing for its perfect match? Ask for Dr. Joel Hubbard. Want a sexy love story that combines the best elements of both? Then you need to read Damn Good Man.
Ms. Witvliet writes a saucy, yet exciting novel. Through the plot twists and relatable adventure, the reader is left on the edge of her seat wanting to know more. Gwen’s independent streak and desire to find true love makes her a great character. Joel’s desire to move on after the passing of his wife to cancer makes the reader want to reach out to him. Both characters are like close friends the reader knew for years. I couldn’t put it down until the very last page, and even then, I didn’t want the story to end.
The strongest element of this story is Ms. Witvliet’s way of capturing the human spirit. We all want to succeed and to be loved for who we are, not what we’ve accomplished, or the mistakes of our past.
If you want a great love story with human elements we can all relate to, then look no further than Damn Good Man. I give this book 5 Books! Awesome!
