How much heartache can one man take before he breaks? That is a question Rich Langston asks himself every day. A Seattle advertising exec who uses his designer suit and showy car like a suit of armor, Rich refuses to let the world get to him. His traumatic childhood has ruined any faith he had in people, friendship, and love. After a meltdown that led to him alienating everyone in his life, Rich agrees to help with the restoration of an antique sailboat as a form of penance. Roped into heading up with the boat repair by his mother, marine restorer Patrick O'Dowd finds himself having to babysit a moody, spoiled rich boy with absolutely no carpentry experience. His easy-going nature is sorely tested, but he quickly realizes that things are not always what they seem; sometimes a fancy suit is nothing but an elaborate deflection from what's real. Through unavoidable personality clashes and fierce attraction, both Rich and Patrick explore their hidden pain and inner demons, and they end up finding with what really matters-love.

I REALLY  hated Rich in the first book but man did J.K. turn me totally around. By the end of this book I just wanted to hug him.. and the end of I Survived Seattle I wanted to murder him.. Excellent book where a sequel surpasses the original in just how much I loved the characters. Well done.
