Bargain in Bronze:
Libby’s specialty is producing her renowned muesli. When an Olympic athlete invites her to make cereal for him, she's puzzled that his brother Jack should accuse her of trying to spoil his brother's career. Libby intends to remain single, but with Jack around, she can barely suppress the pleasure she's long denied herself.
Jack’s fascination with Libby is immediate, but he's raised his two siblings following their parent’s death, and it's been hard work for as long as he can remember. He can't let down his guard when his brother is so close to the Olympic success. However, keeping Libby at bay takes every ounce of his self-control.
Neither wants a relationship, but they can't refute their attraction. When the relationship starts to crackle between them, will they be able to take it?
Bargain in Bronze started out alright, but I never really felt I knew either of them. Bargain in Bronze hopped around a fair bit which was slightly off-putting. The story is basically okay, not over the top, and a quick read. Perhaps it should have been a novella. I think more detail is needed, and perhaps Natalie Anderson needs to expand descriptions a little.
