Sometimes you can’t change—and sometimes you just don’t want to. Discover Ben’s side of the story in this fourth novel by the beloved, top-selling indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths,One Tiny Lie, and Four Seconds to Lose.Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her.Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks?
Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about.If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Reese is turning over a new leaf and has started working at her stepdads law firm. When Ben starts work, will they both overcome their commitement issues and fall for each other?
I liked Reese. She was sarcastic and blunt and kind of a bitch. Although I felt her fixation with her ex dragged on a bit. Ben was kind of a manwhore and it was a little offputting to read some parts. Other than that I liked how these two grew to become friends/co-workers to lovers.
The story captured my attention but by halfway I started to lose a little interest with Reese's ex drama. Overall if you are looking for great banter, YA/NA with great characters I would give this a go.
