Blake Monroe hasn’t had the easiest life, but she’s never been one to dwell on her misfortunes, preferring to see the world as a place where you get what you give.
Having had an especially troubling childhood, Blake’s aware she doesn’t exactly fit the definition of “normal.” Her lack of filter, dry sense of humor, and uncanny ability to read people make her rather unique—and difficult to live with. When her latest roommate has had enough of her antics, Blake decides living with a man might suit her better.
Gavin Gibson’s a dreamer whose artsy aspirations don’t meet the high expectations of his wealthy family. Cast off and cut off, Gavin needs a place to live. When he’s invited to share Blake’s quaint apartment, he cannot pass it up. With a knack for spotting the good in others, Gavin can see past Blake’s quirks—and neither of them can ignore their sexual chemistry.
As sparks fly, their genuine affection for each other grows, and Gavin begins to break down Blake’s defenses. But can Blake open up to reveal the damage she’s worked so hard to conceal?

Filled with love and laughter
Laugh out Loud quirky, quick whited, emotionally thrilling, action packed romantic adventure filled with passion, understanding and heartwarming good times.
Blake Monroe is so not your average everyday anything.... she is quirky, outspoken, truthful to a fault and so unsure how to keep a relationship going. (or so she thinks) Gavin Gibson is sweet, charming, sexy and has an artistic soul that is not accepted by his family. He is also just the right kinda guy to slip under Blake's defenses and truly accept her as she is. (even adore her for her differences) They are so adorable and fun together and I also enjoyed their friends. Highly entertaining reading.
This was a great quick read and another great addition to the misadventures series. This is my first book by this author and I am hoping it will not be my last. Elizabeth Hayley did a great job at keeping the story moving and making you not want to put the book down. Blake and Gavin are great together. It’s witty and great. Keep up the great work.
