Back to Basics by Erin McCarthy

Book Blurb:
Angel Weiss can’t believe that her old friend Brian has stood her up at their wedding, for a stripper no less, ruining her plans to collect on some old college bet money. If you can’t trust a man to follow through on a fake wedding, who can you trust? So maybe she is a little uptight and suppressed, as Brian points out, but after watching her father run through six wives, she can’t help but be a little bit of a control freak. Who never intends to get married for real.

Rick Dengler did the marriage thing and the only good thing that came out of it was his daughter. Otherwise, it just left him broke and disillusioned. So he isn’t looking for anything but illegal campers when he’s doing rounds through the park on his job as a ranger. What he finds is a sexy blonde in heels frozen in the path of a black bear.

Which leads to them both covered in poison ivy. Which leads to stripping down to what nature intended in a heart shaped hot tub. Which leads Angel and Rick to conclude that maybe they’re not out of the woods yet when it comes to falling in love with a person all wrong for you… 
Oh my Goodness...this book was soo much fun to read..It had me laughing right out loud! Angel's bad luck with the great outdoors was so funny...first the bear, then the poison ivy...and. all of the taxidermy in her honeymoon cabin...I couldn't stop laughing. I could just envision Angel running through the woods in her wedding dress and heels trying to get away from the bear. And poor Ranger Rick...trying to save her!
The chemistry between Ranger Rick and Angel was so hot. Who knew that putting anti-itch lotion on could be used as foreplay???
I would love to see how they are doing now...did Angel win the bet then? Did she get to adopt her baby that she wanted? Did Rick get to have more time with his daughter? Did Brian really marry his stripper? Things that will have me thinking about this book in the future. :)
I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a good, funny, heart warming story. It'll bring up your spirits and have you hoping that you could run into a Ranger Rick of your own!
