Secrets of a Massage Therapist by Andy Vogt

Angie is a massage therapist. She is originally from Germany but now lives in the U.S.A. She has one staunch rule that she will not have a relationship with any of her clients, although many try to change her mind. Mostly she goes to clients homes and gives massages there but once in a while she will help out a friend in her business. She meets Marcus at a gas station while filling up one day and he gives her his card. It takes her quite awhile before she decides to call him. They fall fast and hard for each other, but real life's pitfalls get in the way. Marcus has an old girlfriend that will not leave him along and goes to Angie to tell her that they are still together. Meanwhile Angie is being harassed by a former boyfriend, and commiserating with other therapists about their lives.

Quite a cute book with more of a story than I anticipated. Loved the snippets about the massages that she gave and the different personalities of the clients. Angie is a good strong character, who knows who she is and what she wants out of life. Marcus is a good foil for her. They have a great chemistry through the book. The cover is fitting for the book, as a peek into what lies ahead. Was not sure at the beginning that I would like this book but was pleasantly surprised in the end. An easy read for anyone looking for one.
