When past and present collide….
When Piper Mahoney and Lucas Richardson randomly run into each other in the lobby of a NYC hotel that Piper manages three years after they shared one steamy, impossible-to-forget afternoon together, the attraction is tangible. Neither feels ready to act though. Piper has left friends and family in Boston to reboot her life after a difficult loss while Lucas is vying for a promotion at the DA’s office and handling his own personal problems with his ailing mother. Impulsively Piper reaches out. Lucas can show her his favorite haunts in the city this summer while they enjoy a friends with benefits fling.
Lucas is tempted. He hasn’t relaxed or had fun in forever and Piper was always the one woman who got under his guard.
Can he keep Piper’s no-strings bargain even as he falls in love or will their pasts strangle any hope for a future?
Emotional and beautiful. A child born from rape into poverty transformed his anger and inadequacy into success. Great story. We could all learn.
Good story. Kept me wanting to keep reading
This was a very interesting read with two very complex characters with each having enough baggage to fill a truck. You will enjoy their stories and be sad for them.
