He kissed me.
I slapped him.
That's the last time I thought about Ethan.
Now he’s back, and screw him—he isn't allowed to break my heart and then show up years later looking like July in a fireman’s calendar and ruining my chances at running the Black Alcove bar. Nope. I have plans and they don’t include him.
I tried to forget her.
The moment I saw Kelsey again I knew I was doomed.
I have one task while I’m here, and having her one breath away makes me forget how to be the responsible man I’ve worked so hard to become.
One more kiss
Ethan Connelly and Kelsey Brian shared a kiss as teenagers. She felt bad, since he had a girlfriend at the time. Years later, she broke up with her own boyfriend, when she caught him cheating with not 1 but 2 girls at the same time. Is it true once a cheater always a cheater?
Now after 7 years, Ethan walks into the bar where she works. He has turned out smokin' HOT! Hot with a capital H! He is going to run the bar for her best friend and roommate, his cousin while she takes a world trip for about a year. Can Kelsey put up with his being close and not try to attack him?
Ethan has always wanted Kelsey. Now he has an actual shot with her. Only keeping a terrbile secret from her and her roommate may have awful consequences. Can their new relationship bounce back from this? What is he gets caught?
Kelsey is finally trusting a man again. She knows Ethan is hiding something from her. She just hopes it doesn't kill her when she finds out. She knows it is just a question of when, not if. She just hopes it is not another woman like before.
Both of these characters have bad parents and can relate on that level. What I loved was the banter, the sexy times, and the struggle to resist! This is a great start to the Black Alcove series. I cannot wait to see what the author has for us in the next book!
