Deconstructing Lila by Shannon Leigh - Review

Deconstructing Lila by Shannon Leigh

Preservationist Lila Gentry returns to her small Texas hometown to restore the famous Chisholm Trail whorehouse where her great-great-grandmother was a madam in the 1880s. On her agenda is winning back Jake, the one that got away. But how do you rope a man who doesn't want to be wrangled?
Jake lives by one creed:  Keep it simple. His ex showing up in town complicates his life and makes him think about things he'd rather forget.
When Lila's restoration project is threatened before it even begins, she turns to Jake for help. Working together stirs up old feelings, but while Lila and Jake always sizzle between the sheets—or wherever the moment takes them—it will involve some sweet-talking and finesse to bring these two together.

Deconstructing Lila has a bit of an unusual premise. The H&H are actually married as the book starts. I have read plenty of books where they are former lovers getting back together, but I don't think I have ever read any book where they are already married, just not together. I liked the idea, it worked for this story.

I enjoyed the way Lila & Jake came to work together, which of course brought them back together as a couple. Some of the secondary characters in this book are quite fun. The sizzle between Lila & Jake is quite obvious right from the beginning and only gets hotter as the story moves ahead.

This was the first book I have read from Shannon Leigh, I will definitely check out more of her work.
