Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him…

Carson Stinger was a man who didn’t play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn’t care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her…

When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn’t possible. At least not yet…

Ana will put Stinger on her second shelf!!

When Carson Stinger, straight male performer, meets Grace Hamilton, future lawyer, it certainly is a very unlikely pair.  Carson is laid back and enjoys life for what it is.  Grace has a list that’s a mile long with all the things she wants accomplish and by when.  Immediately he irritates her…immediately, I was intrigued!

“Let me guess, law student conference?”

I started to walk around him, but stopped when I heard the clearly condescending nickname and the amusement in his voice. “Yes, actually. Is there something wrong with that?”

“No, not at all. Looks like we’re both here to learn how to be the best at getting people off.”

I’ve always been a fan of stories about opposites attracting and somehow making each other better but those stories don’t always work.  Not so here.  This story does not disappoint…oh, it makes you sad and it makes you mad and it makes you swoon…but it does not disappoint!

These two had great chemistry and the romance was hot!!  And, even though their attraction bloomed quickly due to circumstance, it felt like more than an insta-romance from the very start.  Each character battled their own demons and believed themselves to be doing the best they could, what was expected of them, even if it wasn’t exactly what they wanted.

Their whirlwind romance helped set the stage for so much soul searching and so many changes in their lives that each of them grew into stronger more confident people as the story progressed.  The character development and growth was very well written here.  As the reader, I moved through this story watching as the two people I met on page one stretched and came into their own, faced their issues head-on and moved forward.  They weren’t the same people at the end of the story…I love when that happens!

“Sometimes, you don’t even realize anything is wrong until someone comes along and changes you, and makes you want more.”

There are so many lovely moments, so much great romance and so many situations that made me wonder about my own choices in life in this book.  As we follow the lives of these two character we’re treated to some twists and turns and some misunderstandings, but most of all we’re treated to watching these characters make important decisions and take a gamble on the future.  I wish I could tell you more but there’s too big a chance that I’ll spoil it for you.  So, I ll just say…there is love and happiness, sorrow and confusion, romance and lust.  In short…it’s a really great read!!

“Yeah, life can change on a dime.” I grinned. “Wild, isn’t it?”
