Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare… Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well—until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.
Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he’s determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.
But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won’t be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her… down to the very soul.
Wow, this book was amazing! This is the first book I have read by this author but I am impressed and excited to read more from her! This book revolves around a tragic accident. Usually I stay away from sad books but the passion between the characters and the strength made it impossible to put the book down.
Looking at the beginning of the book, I would never do anything with a guy like Braden. Well at least not the beginning Braden. At the beginning when he meets Joss in the cab, all I could think is he is a guy whose ego is bigger than his head and always looking for something better. I mean come on ladies! He had a girlfriend and he was openly ogling Joss like she was the next best thing. Ok, his self assurance was kind of hot. This is defiantly at cat and mouse kind of book, with lots of chasing in the fun and dominate kind of way. I loved how strong Joss was and the banter between her and Braden.
I loved this book!!
