I love everything about Katy Regnery’s Odds Are Good series!! Once again I was brought into her world that I didn’t want to leave, I also fell in love people I connected with and want to revisit over and over again.
Trevor, aka Mr. Fairbanks, isn’t looking for love. He was burned in the worst possible way, not only by his ex, but also by his brother. Trevor places an ad in the Odds Are Good magazine for a discreet, intimate weekend over New Years with zero chance for love, but what he finds is more than he ever bargained for.
Faye is a successful business woman who hasn’t had time for a personal life. Losing her parents while still in college and then taking over the care of her younger sister didn’t leave room to look for love. When she spots Mr. Fairbanks advertisement it intrigues her for many reasons. First, his use of vocabulary (because big words used correctly are ultra sexy). Second, he lives in a town where she has been interested in acquiring a new distillery, the trip to Alaska will ultimately kill two birds with one stone. Third and probably most important, she’s still a virgin and losing her v-card is starting to become a ticking timebomb. Being a thirty year old virgin is a strange oddity and losing this one dreaded thing to a stranger seems better than explaining it to the next man she actually wants to date. She’s been there, done that, and it never goes well.
All goes well with the plans in place for Mr. Fairbanks and “Faith” (Faye uses an alias too) and they plan to meet the weekend of New Years. That is until Trevor and Faye meet in person the week prior and the two real people hit it off. As they get to know each other they begin to feel guilty that they have an upcoming tryst with a “stranger”. Do they keep their standing plans or keep getting to know the person in front of them? Neither planned on real feelings, but is it possible for plans to change?
Trevor and Faye and a wonderful couple together. Healing and growing in that beautiful way that Katy writes broken characters. The Fairbanks Affair is a perfect story for the holiday season.
