Men Sell Bras
Malcavey was doing the family favors-again-and ended up in a lingerie
shop to buy a maternity bra for her well-endowed, very pregnant
sister. She was not prepared for the clerk to be a man-and a rather
handsome one at that. When she nervously asked told him the size
she wanted, he visually measured her up and down and determined
she didn't know what assets she had-or didn't have.
Karstetter was helping his mother out in the shop, and he knew as
soon as he set eyes on Casie that it was his lucky day. But how
could he come onto her without it seeming like a come-on?
has a way of playing practical jokes. Before long, Casie is roped
into helping the high school girls form a cheerleading squad, and
it isn't long until she realizes that the coach is none other than
the guy from the bra shop.
is a personal aside, but I love a woman in a book who has a fondness
for her car. It shows the men of the world that they aren't the
only ones who do this. Casie has even named her car, which is about

book is filled with delightful laugh-out-loud lines. Of course,
there are some tender moments thrown in, including the delivery
of Casie's sister's baby, just so you don't forget it is a romance.
Cathy McDavid is definitely a repeat author in my book. Life is
too short to waste it on all that serious literature when you could
be having fun. I highly recommend it.
