~Synopsis~

  As a physical sports therapist, Gail Bennett is accustomed to working with gorgeous athletes every day, but after falling for a few of these attractive men, she has been left heartbroken one too many times. When Gail’s hours at work are unexpectedly cut, she must find a way to continue helping her parents pay for her sister’s education. Reluctantly following her best friend’s advice, Gail takes on a roommate with the one man she has been avoiding since the first time she laid eyes on him. Damon Johnson loves a challenge, and he is not the type of man to back down when he wants something. From the first moment he meets Gail for dinner, he feels an inexplicable pull between the two of them. In his determination to have her, he finds himself helping her in any way he can. Can Damon break through all the barriers Gail has so carefully placed around her heart and prove that he’s different? Or will Gail’s reservations keep her from falling in love? One thought could change everything.

“I don’t know why I always expected the worst, but this man continued to surprise me at every turn.”

“A beautiful girl who once hid worms in her purse from me once told me a surprise is not a secret…”

My Review:

 This is my first Alicia Rae novel, when I look at her backlist – I realize I am a late bloomer.  What a sweet and steamy story!  I will gladly read more of her work if they are all like this.  A Beautiful Thought is a comfortable and easy read, and a steamy love story – yay – no complaints from me!  I want a boyfriend like Damon, he is thoughtful, multi-talented, funny, supportive, smart, educated, gentle, generous, handsome, ripped, and caring.  Can someone let me know where they make those?
