Was meeting again an unfortunate twist of fate? Or was it just serendipity?
Julia McKinnon was convinced she’d found the one – the man of her dreams, the most seductive, experienced lover she’d ever known – and the night they’d spent together in New York was the stuff erotic fantasies were spun from. But with the dawn of a new day came only heartache and betrayal, and her dreams were snuffed out like so much fairy dust.
Nathan Atwood felt like the lowest sort of life form after seducing the incredibly beautiful girl he met in New York, only to break her tender heart with the confession that he was already involved with someone else. Leaving Julia was the hardest thing he’d ever done, and the memory of their passionate night together haunted his dreams for months afterwards.
Now fate has brought them together again, and they are forced to work alongside each other. Will Julia be able to put aside the feelings she still has for her handsome boss and forge a new life for herself in San Francisco? And how long will Nathan be able to resist the gorgeous woman he’s never really stopped thinking about or wanting?
Another book to mark off my 2015 Reading Challenge – A Book with a one-word title.
So hot at times that I seriously thought my kindle was going to spontaneously combust!
The power of fate and showing you that sometimes to get what you really want you have to learn to listen to it.
The chances of bumping into a complete stranger three times in a row in a city neither of you live when you are only there for a week is slim to none. The power of serendipity is at hand and Nathan and Julia defiantly take advantage of this happy accident.
The chemistry of these characters is electric. The pull they have towards each other is something neither can deny. One look is all it took to show the connection, attraction and lust between them. After meeting by chance for the third time they both decide to take a chance and end up having the best night of both of their lives. Only kink in this chain is the next morning when Nathan admits that he is a newly engaged man saying that the night they spent together was a mistake, which ends up breaking Julia’s heart.
Months pass but fate won’t be denied as it puts them right in each other’s paths again. Julia gets a job working for Nathan’s design company. Nathan thinks that Julia has stalked him and is going to confront his fiancé. This makes me laugh as how would either of them found each other – no last names were given – after believing that Julia is there by a simple twist of fate they decide to act as though nothing has happened between them and try and keep their distance. This time around is harder than the last as they try to stay away from each other. Only problem is that neither of them really wants to. The heat and passion between them is hotter than before. Only time will tell how their story will play out. Even though he is engaged – to a vile woman I might add – you are always routing for them to get together.
Strong characters, great storyline, romance and erotic scenes off the chart make this a great read. The other characters within the story are just as compelling. Its gearing you up to want to read theirs next. This is a stand-alone book though – no cliffhanger which is great. Would definitely recommend this book and I am definitely going to check out the rest in this series too.
I received this book from Net Gallery for this review.
5 out of 5 stars
