Publisher Description

If someone were to have told me a year ago, that by the end of this year I was going to break up with Ben my boyfriend of five years and leave my family home to move to a different city to start a new life, I’d have told them they were crazy. There was no way something like that could happen....ever!

It did happen.

Twenty two year old university drop out Marisa Gellys' relaxed lifestyle takes a turn for the worse when she arrives early at Kyle Matthews’ annual Halloween bash to find her boyfriend making out with another girl. Heartbroken she sets off to a brand new city to get away from her family who thinks she’s made the biggest mistake of her life by breaking up with Ben.

For the first time in her life, Marisa’s doing everything on her own and she loves it. A brand new city, a brand (sort of) new job, and a hunky, dreamy late night customer who shows her the kinds of things he likes to do.

Welcome to the ride.

This year will be nothing like last year.

I have read many romance novels and this has got to be the most twisted one of all. The male protagonist is not attractive in any way. Sure, the way the author described his features were attractive but the way she portrays him does not appeal to an avid reader like me. I've read 50 shades, whereby Christian is into the whole dominant and submissive thing and I'm fine with that but Xander is 'abnormal'. He is not romantically appealing what so ever. Major turn off and disturbing to read. Also the vocabulary lacks in variation as it becomes repetitive and somewhat annoying when he keeps saying the word 'baby'. -gobsmacked.
