Sloane Redding is the shy one, the timid one. The morning of her wedding, she’s dumped by the man she’d thought she’d spend the rest of her life with. Humiliated, she turns tail and runs, leaving Nowhere, Alabama for a job in the city. Sloane sets out to remake herself. She succeeds…on the outside. On the inside? Different story. She still the shy Redding. Still quiet, still more interested in standing on the standlines. But all of that is about to change.

The night before her brother’s wedding, she strolls in the lone bar in Nowhere wearing wicked red and she’s got one goal in mind: to show her ex-fiance just what he lost.

The night before his best friend’s wedding, D.B. “Boone” Cassidy walks into the lone bar in Nowhere, Alabama with one goal in mind. Get wasted. Former military, he’s spent the past few years as a security specialist and all around troubleshooter. It should have been easy to spot the trouble that night…a sexy woman in wicked red. It should have been easy. Yeah, right.

One thing leads to another and his plans to get wasted turn into a night with the sexy woman in red . Boone gets the shock of his life the next day when he shows up at his friend’s wedding to find out he’d just spent the night wrapped around his best friend’s little sister…and that isn’t the only surprise.

Includes a bonus story, Tempt Me.

My review 3

Why did I want to read this book?

I wanted to find out what was in store for the two characters, especially Sloane, the female main character who is on a quest to reinvent herself.


What worked for me?

I definitely love the chemistry between these two. Scorching pages, you guys. But for my money, I also love that it wasn’t all about the heat and the sexual chemistry. They had to grow as individuals and I loved that they do this without the need to be with somebody. Although it is always an added bonus if you have somebody by your side, right? And these two, they just couldn’t stop thinking about each other. There is a slight time lapse but the author was able to sustain that vested interest in me, as a reader, hoping that these two would have their HEA.


What did not work for me?

I completely understood the time lapse but as a fan of the couple, I wanted more moments of them together.


My over-all take on it?

This was a sexy and surprisingly emotional story about how another person can come into your life and really makes you want to change for the better. It reminds me of how life and love can be a gift you give to another person as well as a gift you give to yourself.


My rating:

 3-5 stars
