A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review.

I went into this book being sucked in by the synopsis, and let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed! Our main love interests were a great pair to tag along with for their wild ride!

After a crazy one night stand, Erin, finds out some awesome news... if only she knew how to find the man that did this to her. All she knows is he goes by the name Walker. Looking high and low, erin's unable to find him until she gets back to her job and finds out he's one of her colleagues. Talk about the fate's aligning. Now it's time for Erin to put on her big girl pants and give Walker the chance to prove himself.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was cute and sweet, and I'm giving it 4 STARS out of 5 STARS for originality with a twist. The story flows so well! I didn't want it to end; I wanted more more more Erin and Walker!

My body isn’t used to this much alcohol. The few glasses of wine I

normally drink don’t have me in the middle of a dance “orgy” without

remembering how I got there. Sweat is dripping down my neck and tickling the

space between my breasts. After the third round of drinks, bought by three
different men just wanting to get in my pants, I feel relaxed yet out of
control. Noelle is nowhere to be found and in my drunken state I’m not even the
least bit concerned about it. The music has taken over my body and I can feel
myself letting go of all the stress and anxiety that Robert has caused me. I
don’t care who is watching because at this moment I feel like the sexiest
person in here.

With my eyes closed I rub my hands along my hips all the way to my hair,

pulling it off my neck into a makeshift ponytail. The beat of the music moves

through me like an electric wave. When a cool puff of air passes over the back

of my neck it feels like water in the Sahara. Larger hands than I’ve ever felt
before unexpectedly come around my waist and pull me back into a rock hard
chest. My breathing becomes more ragged as the mystery man whispers in my ear.

“Are you hot, baby?” He asks, his hot breath sending shivers down my


My senses are on high alert and despite the fact that I haven’t a clue

what he looks like, those four words turn me on instantly. If his voice can do

that to me I’d love to see what his enormous hands are capable of. Our bodies

connect and sway to the music as his mouth continues to hover just above my
shoulder causing tingles to radiate through my body. I can feel his lips
grazing the crease of my neck and when he nips my skin my knees go weak. My
head falls back involuntarily giving him more access to continue his sensual
assault. He smells delicious, and the soft suctioning kisses he places up my
neck cause me to moan in anticipation. I have to see the man who is releasing
all my inhibitions.

Reluctantly I turn my heated body around feeling the loss of his soft

lips, but what I’m rewarded with is a vision of godliness. Standing at what

appears to be well over six feet tall is the most panty-dropping specimen that

I have ever laid my eyes upon. I should have turned around sooner! His plain
black t-shirt hugs every single slender muscle in his sexy ass arms. The faded
blue jeans he wears are snug, even more so where his zipper lies, showing me
how much he is turned on. His dark brown hair is a styled mess; short on the
sides but longer up top. I can’t help but wonder what it would feel like to grab
hold of it and tug. Hard. A grin flashes across his face, as if he’s read my
mind, and I see a hint of just one dimple on the right side of his mouth. His
green eyes appear hungry as they shamelessly take me in from my toes to my own
starving eyes. I swallow hard and try to catch my breath.

“I thought you looked good from behind but damn if you don’t look

heavenly from this angle,” he says loudly, over the music.

He grabs both of my hands, circling them around his neck. With our

height difference my forehead falls into his chest perfectly, as if we are two

pieces of a puzzle. I try to control my breathing; the alcohol is coursing

through my veins now. Freeing my hands from their hold, they find their way
down and softly graze over his pecs and then the ripple of his abs. They falter
as they come in contact with not a six pack but, a …1,2,3,… eight pack! I see
his chest rising and falling rapidly. I think he must be as turned on by me as
I am by him. Impossible.
