How do you trust someone who is everything you’re trying to avoid?
Harper Lindell is having a bad day. You know, if a bad day consists of getting fired from your cushy job and then catching your boyfriend red handed playing hide the salami.
Sick of meeting the same guys over and over, Harper decides to try her luck at Internet dating. How bad could it be? Right?
Tate Washington wasn’t looking to meet anyone. Still dealing with the consequences of his one serious relationship, all he’s interested in is revamping his family’s behind-the-times café.
He didn’t plan on seeing the beautiful receptionist from Argo again, walking into his life to use his café as a dating hub, and using him as a BFF.
Can Harper really trust Tate, who is everything she thinks she needs to steer clear of?
Can Tate wait while Harper works through her insecurities and fears?
This book needs to come with a warning – ‘use this book incase you missed your exercise today – best ab workout!’
I said on my Facebook page that only fellow book buddies and book lovers would understand what it’s like to come across a book that you know you’re going to love from the very first chapter. Well, I fell in love with this book from the first sentence. Utter bliss.
I was wildly clapping (yes, it was in the privacy of my own home where no shame reigns!) that this story was focused on Harper’s tale. She was such a character from book one in this series that I was hoping she would be featured more.
Harper’s day can’t get any worse. Well. That’s what I thought but it seems to stretch into a number of days and then weeks when she decides to put herself back out into the dating world. This book needs to come with a warning on the front ‘Do not read in public places’ – I had tears. Tears from laughing so hard. Hubster found me rolling around in the bed while trying to breath from my belly laughs. Oh, the antics of these dates. Hilarious.
I love Harper’s chaotic mind. She’s high maintenance but when I found out what’s happened to her, I can totally understand why she is the way she is. Smith has written a very likeable and complex character.
Tate. **sigh** He is just what Harper needs. Someone to be there for her if she lets him. He’s witty, he’s smart and successful and he is the perfect match for her. He is a formidable force and was a delight to read.
Stephanie Smith is a new author to me and I’m so grateful that I found her. Her writing style – sublime. Her way with words – perfection! For an author to pull the kind of emotion she did from me in the first book and then a different kind of emotion in the second, takes a true writing genius. She will be an automatic buy in my world from now on.
For lovers of romance, drama and super sexy – this series hits the spot – but please take note, there are cross over characters and you don’t have to read these in order but I would recommend that you do so you can enjoy the story from the beginning. I’m itching for book three.
