REVIEW: Kenzie came home to oversee the boutiques at her grandmother’s casino, not to get involved with the very sexy computer whiz who’s fixing the casino software glitches. Reed Watson nearly drooled all over himself the first time he set eyes on Kenzie. His reaction to her is like nothing he has ever felt before. These two are opposites in so many ways except for one very important fact; their powerful attraction to each other.  Kenzie is not looking for that special someone at this point in her life but her feelings for Reed are impossible to ignore. Reed is somewhat reluctant to act on his feelings for Kenzie but the pull of desire is too strong to resist. Before long Kenzie and Reed fall headlong into love only to realize their life is not complete without each other.

Kenzie is bubbly and sometimes unpredictable with a healthy zest for life. This fashion buyer has traveled all over the world. Yet she gave it all up to be near her family. Kenzie has balance in her life now and is happier than she’s been in a long time. The one thing that could make her happiness complete would be to launch her own clothing line.

Reed is a brilliant tech guru who is also co-owner in the Casa de Mariposa casino in Reno. This multimillionaire computer programmer has the ability to turn all his endeavors into successes and then he’s off to find his next challenge and make his next millions.  Despite all his accomplishments, Reed is in essence still trying to find himself.

The authors did a good job with this story and the characters are so vivid. Good writing is evident when you can get a clear picture of the characters in your mind as you read the story. I was able to this easily with Kenzie and Reed.  This is a very good read with two people who enjoy a sense of adventure doing the most unlikely and fun things. Through it all they recognize that life can be exciting and fulfilling especially with someone you love.
DRAWING HEARTS is a great ending to the Russell family.  Kenzie is the youngest Russell and the last to be hit by the love bug. Her outgoing personality is in total contrast to Reed’s quiet demeanor but it works for them. The other characters include Miss E, the matriarch of the Russell family, Kenzie’s three brothers and their mates. I enjoyed reading this story because Kenzie and Reed are so cute together as they steer their way through this strong attraction they have for each other.  The road to love can sometime be a little rocky but these two make it fun and worth the effort.
