Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?

As has happened to me many times in the past, I accidentally read book 2 before book 1.  So, this means I knew the ending of this story before I even began.  But, because of how much I enjoyed the second book, I absolutely had to read this one.  And, you know what?!?  Knowing what would happen did not lessen my enjoyment of this story at all…especially since the plot was creative and unique.  Cassie and her friends are almost at the end of their once-in-a-lifetime vacation across Europe when she finally gets the opportunity for her dream fling.  Seems easy…however, with some misunderstandings and many obstacles in their way, Cassie and Logan become more entwined in each other’s lives than they imagined.  And so the drama begins…

I loved watching their feelings grow and seeing both of these characters slowly realize how much more they could become to each other.  This story’s heat come from a slow simmer not a rapid boil and I really enjoyed the fact that Cassie, Logan, and I all had to work for it.  The rocky road they travel definitely makes the sweet ending worth the wait.  Their story is romantic and sexy and, when you add Logan’s Scottish brogue to the mix, well…sigh!  I can’t end this review without a quick shout out to the secondary characters.  Cassie’s friends and Logan’s sister were wonderful, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the author gives them their own stories in the future!

This is a fun, quick read that will leave you smiling and wanting to go out and find your own sexy Scot!  Very quickly Melonie Johnson has become a favorite author.  I can’t wait to get to the next installment in this series…and, luck for me, it’s already on my kindle!
