 Book Description:
Working It Out A chance encounter . . . Grace Warren's life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.

A chance for love . . . Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace's rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he's every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there's something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he's everything she's sure she doesn't want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she's willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.  

Her eyes continued to search his face—well, more like probe—as though she could see into his mind and thoughts. She held up the brochure she carried, showing Seth the face of the bachelor he’d just bid twenty grand for. He took it from her to get a closer look. “What do you plan to do about the incredibly expensive date you won?” she asked. Seth scanned through Cameron’s bio, a smile tugging at the corners of his mouth. He returned the brochure back to her and tapped the page. “Experience an unforgettable day of high adventure, apparently. Sorry if I, uh, took that away from you.” She looked completely unfazed, as though this strange situation happened all the time. “You know he’s not gay, right?” “I made that assumption, yes,” Seth said, wondering what was going through that pretty head of hers. “Why? Are you hoping I’ll hand the date off to you since I’m clearly not gay either?” “Aren’t you?” The way she said it made Seth’s jaw work back and forth. She looked so confident, so unshakable, reminding him of someone who got under his skin on a regular basis—Lanna. Except the two women looked nothing alike. Lanna was petite and fair, whereas this woman was taller, with darker hair and a darker complexion. But that expression—that impassivity—exactly the same. Maybe Lanna had given her lessons. Yet for whatever reason, it bothered Seth that this woman might think he preferred men to women. “No, I’m not.” “Then you won’t mind if I do borrow that date from you. I’m sure Cameron would prefer me over you anyway.” If she didn’t look so sure of herself, Seth would have said, “Have it, it’s yours.” But something in the way she said it made Seth bristle. “Yes, I would mind, actually. I happen to like ziplining, parasailing, and . . . romantic horseback rides.” “And Cameron, apparently.” Seth took a step forward, leaning close so his eyes were only inches from hers. “Like I told you, I’m not gay.” “Oh yeah? Prove it. Give me the da—” Seth immediately dipped his head slightly and covered her mouth with his. Her lips were warm and soft, and she smelled faintly of citrus. For a second, it seemed like she responded, but then she planted her palms against his chest and shoved him away. 

 My Review: 

I read Working it Out in less than a day, not because it was a short book, but I just couldn't put it down. The characters are so realistic, and you are drawn into their lives quickly. I love main characters Seth and Grace. But the other characters in this book, Lanna and Alec are also very appealing. The situations in this book are very different from other romantic comedies I have read. Like I said, they seemed more real to me. Some of the situations in this story are harsh such as death mentioned and one character is a paraplegic. But all of the themes add to the story and the growth that takes place with all of the characters. 

I have read other books by Rachael and really liked them. Working it Out has become my favorite novel that Rachael has written. The story has a little bit of everything I loved: humor, drama, heart-tugging scenes that made you cry. Any fan of a good love story, with characters that will stay with you for a long time, must read Working it Out.
