Humiliated, she turns tail and runs, leaving Nowhere, Alabama for a job in the city. Sloane sets out to remake herself. She succeeds...on the outside. On the inside? Different story. She still the shy Redding. Still quiet, still more interested in standing on the standlines. But all of that is about to change.

It should have been easy. Yeah, right.
One thing leads to another and his plans to get wasted turn into a night with the sexy woman in red . Boone gets the shock of his life the next day when he shows up at his friend's wedding to find out he'd just spent the night wrapped around his best friend's little sister...and that isn't the only surprise.

Two Great Stories in one book
This is a wonderful story about a one night stand that could have been more. Decisions are made based on a miscommunication about a "problem". This causes Sloane and DB to go their separate ways, but fate has other plans. Eventually they are brought back together, resolve their problems, and have their HEA.
The second is a great story about lust/love at first sight. From the first time each sets eyes on the other, they cannot stop thinking about the other. Cole is in, then coming out of a cold relationship with the "Wicked Witch of High Street ". While Rocki is a 5-year cop widow that also has a violent stalker. The interferences from their exes causes their love to bloom and their lust to create the best fireworks ever.
I don't like to give away too much of a story, I think it takes away from the enjoyment of finding how the story progresses. These are two stories you do not want to miss.
The story of Sloane Redding and D.B. "Boone" Cassidy Jr., is complicated. He is her brothers best friend. They love him like a brother as well.
Sloane was sick of feeling sorry for herself and going home for her brother Taylor's wedding made her feel a little off. She decided a drink was in order for courage. She met a stranger at the bar who helped defend her from her ex-fiance who left her at the altar.
Boone was bored with the women throwing themselves at him in the bar. He was fascinated by the lady in the red dress, however, and the fact that she hit her ex. He was drawn to her and could not help himself.
Together the sparks fly and the heat literally sizzles. I was impressed with their relationship - or lack there of - due to the honesty given by both characters. You see the development of them both throughout.
Also, we get some work story on Boone, where he goes and what happens to him to keep him away from Sloane. He is hurting as much as she is and finding their way back to one another is key to our developing story. Also - there is a bonus book given, I am not sure if it is in all copies as I read an ebook version.
