Friends to lovers…
Sandy Kirk could always count on her best friend, Clint McCade, to roar into town on his motorcycle in the middle of the night—to shake things up and make her laugh. His short visits brightened her successful, busy, but sometimes lonely life as the owner of a video production house, but this time she needs his help. She’s finally met the man of her dreams. James Vandenberg the Fourth is a successful, wealthy lawyer—and the first man Sandy’s ever met who doesn’t completely pale in comparison to McCade.
But this time McCade has blown into town with a secret—he’s finally realized what’s missing in his life—and it’s Sandy. But when she asks him to help her catch James’s eye and win his heart, McCade dies a little inside, but can’t refuse. Sandy’s happiness means the world to him, and James—with his old money pedigree—is everything that McCade is not.
So McCade becomes Sandy’s motorcycle-riding, long-haired, leather-clad Henry Higgins as he gives her a make-over and teaches her the art of seduction through body language. But crossed signals and mixed messages soon have the old friends playing the part of lovers, and one thing quickly becomes clear: body language doesn’t lie.
In this witty, sensual, and poignant tale, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann explores destiny, deception, and that steamy tipping point between deep friendship and romantic love.
Set in 1998, Body Language is a full length novel of 57K words originally published in 1998 by Bantam Loveswept.
