Review: The Naked Fisherman by Jewel E. Ann (Fisherman #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Valentine PR. Originally part of Amazon's Kindle Vella program, which allows subscribers to read serialized stories, Jewel E. Ann decided to pull  The Naked Fisherman and release it as the first in a duet titled Fisherman . Now, the male main character is actually NOT a fisherman; rather, his name is Fisher Mann, and he happens to own Mann Construction, Inc. The story, however, is told from the sole point-of-view of the female protagonist, Theresa Capshaw, aka Reese, who is eighteen and has led a rather cloistered upbringing over the past five years or so. It's also been five years since she last saw her mother, who was convicted of a marijuana incident and any contact with her was discouraged by her late father and her paternal grandparents who saw her mother as a negative influence.  But now, Reese has decided to spend some time with her estranged mother in Colorado. Only her mother is heading off for job
