Logan McKinley. My ex. I knew he was trouble from the first moment I laid eyes on him.
Fresh out of law school with a new job at one of San Diego's biggest firms, I was supposed to focus on my career. No distractions, no men, and especially no office romances.
Then I met Logan. He was cocky, smooth-talking, and gorgeous—a hotshot associate on the fast track to a partnership and exactly the kind of guy I needed to avoid.
But he was relentless. He pursued me, intrigued me, and seduced me. And when I had no defenses left, my ambitions shifted, and I only wanted him.
For a while, that was enough.
But no one's perfect. The man who put a ring on my finger isn't who I thought he was, so I left.
Now he's back in my life, and he's pushing me into a corner. It's time to show him how hard I can push back.
When those words came out of her mouth, I wasn't surprised. What I didn't expect was how damn near impossible it's been to move on.
The first time I saw Paige Waters, the new associate at my firm who was as intelligent and self-confident as she was stunning, I wanted her. I wasn't used to women rejecting me, but she did—or tried to, anyway—which made me even more determined to have her.
I had no idea that when I finally got her, I wouldn't want to let her go.
But I screwed up. She doesn't even know how badly I screwed up, and everything still went to hell.
Now, one year after our split and with so much still unresolved between us, we're suddenly going head to head on the same case. Seeing her at the office again, where it all started, I realize that this is far from over.
She's still mine.
And whether it's in the courtroom or the bedroom, I always win.
Overall I felt the idea and storyline was good! Characters and story pace was excellent, not too slow nor too fast. Well thought out events that weren’t cliche or very predictable
What I didn’t like was that at the climax of the story, there wasn’t enough substance and the end was rushed. There wasn’t much to the resolution other than he quit his job.
SMALL SPOILER ALERT! I felt Paige went
back and forth between wanting to love him and leave him and that’s understandable then she basically forgives him. Idk if he really understood what she went through but I felt there could’ve been more written on how they continued to work through their problems after he quits his job. I felt their resolution was too simple for all the pain and anger portrayed throughout the story.
And I feel there’s some things the author included that left questions unanswered. Like there was definitely some anger from Freya towards Paige but it was never discussed. How did Mike cope after the mom left ? How did the main character himself cope after the news about his mom seemed to affect him so much? How does Paige not question him more on the past ?
4.5 second chance stars!
Absolutely loved this book. I was hooked from the beginning and devoured it. Loved the story, the chemistry and how authentic these characters are. The feels! I highly recommend this book.

Trials and tribulations of a married couple a lot of angst before resolution! Didn’t get why we had to look back at when they met and what led up to them getting married it didn’t fit the start of the story! Good story once you got past the useless information!
