Jen Appleton is the woman who always says yes. To her boss. To her employees. To charity. To everyone except herself. But when she rear-ends a red Porsche on her way home from a nasty day at work, and the man driving the midlife-crisis cliché turns out to be hot, hot, hot, Jen decides tonight’s the night to say yes to things she’s never said yes to before.

Yes, to a one-night stand in a motel.

Yes, to the hottest night on record.

Yes, to anything Garrett Tracy wants to do to her body.

Garrett knows the chemistry between them can only be described as extreme. But it’s just one night. And then he can get back to work convincing his ex-girlfriend to give him another shot.

When Jen approaches Garrett as the only person in Chicago who might solve her massive work problem, he agrees to help—on the condition that Jen will coach him in winning back his ex. As they work on their projects, Jen and Garrett can’t resist the incredible attraction sparking between them. It’s the perfect friends-with-benefits situation. Until Jen’s heart finally forces her to start saying no

Contemporary Romance.


Book #1 of a new series.


  • Addictiveness: Highly addictive. It was a steamy, fun read, easily done in one sitting.
  • Character: hero 5/5, heroine 4.5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 Both main characters were easy to love, connect and understand. Jen was an amazing heroine. She was smart, hardworking, caring and savvy. Her part on the deal was my favorite. She not only knew how to play the game, but she was really loyal. Garrett was hot and horny. He was also smart and sweet. I loved his brother and I am looking forward to his book. Yeah, I don’t even know who was more boring and made less sense, Melissa or Simon. They both were ok antagonists.
  • Cover: art 4/5, title 5/5, subtitle 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. I love this art because is a very important scene of the book. It is a bit misleading :), because before reading it I was thinking about race driver, or something crazy like that.  I would buy this book without reading the blurb.
  • Freshness:  Nothing that I would say, O.M.G, so original, but it felt fresh. From the way they met, to their deal, it all felt unique, not something you read all the time.
  • Plot: believable 4/5, conflict 4/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 5/5, twists 5/5  Great opening and good ending.  Interesting conflict and dialogues very well written. Fast-paced with enough heat to made it really enjoyable. It was fun and very sexy.
  • Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 5/5 Yes! This is a sexy ride. 🙂 I’m not joking, these two together were explosive. They couldn’t be near each other without setting everything on fire. *Fanning myself here* So many scenes that I could mention, with really great description and at the same time pertinent to the plot. Yes, “the heat is on!”
  • Writing Style: Fantastic characters, fun plot and sexy romance. What else could I want?


  • I don’t know, maybe the conflict. Really Melissa didn’t make much sense.



This was a fun, sexy read, with amazing character development. I can’t wait for the second brother!
