As a very successful private investigator who has caught most of the cheaters in Seattle with their pants down, Rafe Sullivan believes true, lasting love only happens once in a blue moon. Needing to get away from the city to clear his head, he finds the lake house where he spent the best summers of his life is now a wreck...but the sweet girl next door is all grown up and prettier than anything he's ever seen. While Brooke Jansen is happy making and selling chocolate truffles in her small Pacific Northwest lake town, she secretly longs to experience something wild. So when her favorite "Wild Sullivan" moves in again next door after more than a decade away, and sparks fly between them, she can't stop wondering if being bad is really as good as it always seemed...and just how long it will be before she can find out? But when their summer fling quickly spirals into deeper emotions than either of them were expecting, can they survive the heat? Or will Rafe make the biggest mistake of his life and end up losing the best thing that's ever happened to him?

Good girl, bad boy. It’s a popular romantic pairing and rightly so. It’s one type of the classic “opposites attract” tropes and demonstrates how people can learn something from other people whose characters seem to be poles apart from their own.

But Ms. Andre cannily turns the idea on its head. Here it is the beauty out to beguile the beast. Winsome, cute and sweet-natured Brooke Jansen is tired of being the good girl, the woman who made one nearly fatal mistake when she was a teenager and who has never been allowed to forget it. So when she sets out to seduce the wild boy next door, Rafe Sullivan, she does so with a vengeance. She’s got a lot of time to make up for, after all.

The ensuing sexual shenanigans are spicy, all right. Brooke constantly catches Rafe off kilter, breaking through his defenses and making his jaw drop with her combination of innocence and forthright sensuality. But of even more interest is how Brooke navigates around Rafe’s tender spots. She holds to her part of making this a summer fling, much to his surprise. She’s not clingy, fawning or demanding after sex like most of the women he’s known. Instead, he’s the one who tries holding on to her even as he fights against the love swelling upwards inside himself like a tidal wave.

Rafe’s nosy sister Mia has the situation pegged from the start. Acting almost like a Mary Sue, she lets both Brooke and Rafe know about the pitfalls inherent in their little no-strings-attached relations. But thankfully her presence isn’t as heavy handed as you might fear.

“The Way You Look Tonight” delights with its smoldering lustiness and its artless warmth. May all the Sullivan novels be as well played as this one.
