Seriously. I think my heart rate went will above normal like 150 times reading this book. I would have read it all in one sitting had I not had to do the mommy and wife thing. Yes, it was that addicting. Within the first 5 pages; these two were going at it.. Not the simple, “Oh you look good, we have sex – cut scene” type of going at it either, but the type that makes you wish you were Niall, instead of the one reading the book.
Niall is a simple girl, yet complex at the same time. She has enough baggage that most men would run screaming, yet seems like she has it all together. She has a past that she hardly shares with anyone, not because she has something to hide, but because, even after almost 4 years, she is still trying to come to terms with it. After a night of “company obligation” she’s saved from an over eager co-worker by her, sex embodied neighbor, Vic.
Vic has his own secrets… err past that he has FINALLY began to come to terms with. He is a successful playwright and even owns a ranch. So what was he doing in the city, as her neighbor, saving her butt? He happens to live there half the week to be closer to work. After playing the night in shining armor; for whatever reason, they both throw caution to the wind and get down with the nitty gritty. To Vic, it was a one time thing – yet, when she attempted to up and run – he stops her. Way.To.Go.Vic
The two of them together face not only his past, but hers as well. There are several obstacles that are thrown at the both of them and during a few, you got the feeling that the two weren’t going to make it through. What I loved about these issues were that they are real. Real stuff that we all go through, or have gone through at some point in our lives. It helped with connecting with the characters.
This was a well thought out story. Nothing seemed to jumbled for me and everything flowed with an ease. I felt that the back stories more than helped give us an understanding of the characters we were reading about.
The only thing I have to comment on is I wish there was a little more back story on Niall’s parents. Aside from that, I freaking loved this book!
Thanks for stopping by!
