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.
Overall, a great read
This book was captivating and I found it hard to put down. I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next. The writing did seem a bit rushed and the story line progressed dramatically. I did find that there were quite a few typos throughout the book as if no one proof read it.
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!
