I’ve always been three things: Loving daughter, devoted sister, and cynical romantic. Okay, maybe not always the last one, that didn’t happen until my ex-boyfriend cheated on me, and not with just anyone…my best friend.
One year later, and I’m over relationships, only interested in the occasional one-night stand. I don’t fall in love with them, and I don’t expect them to fall in love with me. I won’t be waiting around for their call or stalking their social media—until I discover that one of my little trysts indirectly holds my family’s fate in his hands. So, with a little convincing from my older and much wiser sister, I break my own rules for the sake of my family.
He’s the exact opposite of me: Serious, detached and arrogant. Did I mention that he looks like he should be on a billboard for a cologne ad in the middle of Times Square, or the sexy way he botches up my name in his German accent? Well, he does…but I refuse to relent, remaining committed to my plan. Strictly business, no emotions involved, and nobody will get hurt…until nobody turns into somebody I find myself needing more than I ever thought possible.
What do you do when a one-night stand turns into so much more than you bargained for? And how do you stop one lie that’s getting bigger each time you’re with him from caving everything in around you? I know in the end someone is going to get hurt, but I’m powerless to stop it. And for him…I think I may be willing to have my heart broken all over again.

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I love creating deep characters who you will love or love to hate.
My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? My happy place is a seat by the ocean with my feet in the sand or on the busy streets of New York City. You will more than likely find one of these places as the setting for most of my books.

Wow! Not what I expected. This book captured my attention and kept me entertained until the very end. There is a lot in this book, but each situation adds to the story.
I really liked the theme to the book. Has there ever been something you wish you could take back? A first impression you wish you could redo? I really liked the idea in this book that we can learn from these moments.
I really liked the characters in this book. Emme was adorable and sweet. I loved her heart of gold. I really liked her moral compass even if she had some minor set backs. Lukas was great as well. He was tough and arrogant, but I liked that he was more than he seemed.
The heat in this book was there from the beginning. These two obviously had chemistry. I really enjoyed seeing their interactions with each other. They really brought out the best in each other.
The writing style of this book was good. I liked the dual point of views. I liked the minor characters. My only issue was that I felt some of the characters changed too drastically.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I would be happy to read another book by this author.
