One night in Vegas. One shot at a second chance.

When I fell in love with Brinley Knox, she was the spoiled daughter of the wealthiest family in Orchid Valley. I was the troublemaker orphan, brought to town to find the straight and narrow.

She was the homecoming princess. I was the hired help.

She was the perfect daughter. I was the cautionary tale.

We were young enough to think we could beat the odds. Naïve enough to think the world would make room for true love. Neither of us was prepared for the bitter cold of reality.

I haven’t seen her for ten years. Until tonight.

Face-to-face with a woman who should be a stranger, I recognize the heart of the girl I never stopped loving.

She’s giving me one night. I’m betting everything on making it more.

It’s amazing how much Lexi Ryan is able to pack into so few pages.  This story, told both in the present and the past, from dual points of view no less, really packs a punch.  It’s equal parts a coming of age, learning how to love, story and second chance romance.  There’s the innocence of first love and the hot chemistry of being with someone you know intimately.  And I loved every page of it.

Ms. Ryan is a go-to author for me and she’s yet again cemented her place as one of my favorites with this tiny jewel of a book.  I can’t wait to read the first installment in this series.  I loved Brinley and Marston, both individually and as a couple.  They spark, they’re fire…they’re perfect for each other.  Two people from radically different backgrounds who see in each other a place to call home.  And, even though we don’t know exactly what’s kept them apart for ten years right now, I have my theories.  And I’m so looking forward to seeing if I’m right when Every Little Piece of Me is released in May.

I don’t normally give 5 star ratings to novellas.  Not because I don’t like them, but simply because they don’t normally give me enough depth.  This book, however, is different.  There’s so much here – so much character building, so many details,  and so many questions to be answered that it feels like a book not a novella.  Is it May yet?
