It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.
One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.
He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
Overall I did really enjoy this book. But I do have to say, at the beginning of this book, I was not a fan of Shane, but I adore Nikki. Both Nikki and Shane were “introduced” in a previous book (When I’m With You), but this is a standalone book. Nikki is Ember’s best friend and I love the bond between these two women. Shane is Nate’s friend and business partner, so Ember and Nate make appearances. Nikki and Shane both having clingy exes makes for an interesting twist. So does Shane’s fluent use of French on occasion (don’t worry, it’s all translated). There are certainly some twists I didn’t expect and an issue/question or two I wish had been resolved (but that’s my wishful thinking).
All in all, another sexy, scorching hot book from Ms. Sloan. She will always be one of my click-first-read-the-synopsis-later authors. I have never been disappointed in anything she has written.
