“When you’re ready for a real man to show you what it feels like, you just let me know.”

It should be the offer of a lifetime: sexy craftsman Will Montgomery wants to rock my world, and boy, does he know what to do with his hands – and that filthy, delicious mouth of his…

Only problem is, I don’t believe in relationships. And Will has ‘boyfriend material’ written all over his chiseled, hunky abs. He was supposed to be an impulse fling, but now he’s shown up in Oak Harbor, NC, to put down roots, and he’s determined to make me com…mit.

I’ve been hurt before. Love always ends in tears and tequila, but Will seems different. He’s charming and funny, and did I mention that miraculous mouth of his? Despite all my better judgment, I’m falling. Hard. But can something this good turn out to be true? Or will old scars keep us from building a future together? For the first time ever, maybe I want to be proven wrong...

A sexy, heart-felt stand-alone with a guaranteed happy ending from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Reviewer: Melyssa
This book.

I wasn’t expecting this book. Seriously. Holy book devour, Batman. I don’t think I’ve read a book quite that fast in a while.

Thoroughly engaging, with characters, that while at times, I wanted to hit with their own book, I also sympathized with and seemed to understand, falling in love in a way that seemed almost too sweet and perfect for words.

And the love scenes. God.

Anyone that knows me knows that love scenes don’t sell a book for me. I enjoy ones without them just as much as ones with them. It’s not about that for me. In the end it’s about the love story taking place between two people (even in erotic romances…I’m weird I know). This book delivered on that.

The scenes here, they were so beautifully driven by love, but in the steamiest kind of way. All of the buildup leading into the first, and then every subsequent one after, it was like, I felt every emotion involved for both characters, and the scenes, much like love making between two committed people in real time, bonded me. I couldn’t walk away and I think I fell just as hard as they both did for each other.

I was swept away by Will. As far as hero’s go in fiction, he was tops. I don’t think for the first half of the story at least, I stopped swooning. He just swept me up in him and then in his courting of Delilah. He was an incredible character. One with faults and flaws just like the rest of us but one that also had no fear in owning his mistakes. He was just…god. I`m swooning again now.

I have to admit that I enjoyed Delilah at first, but then my enjoyment did begin to wane a little deeper in. I felt that there was a bit of an overreaction to something later in the story, even though deep down I did understand at least in part, where it stemmed from. How driven she was by instances of the past that she was a part of. But as the story progressed, that unease I felt, wafted away.

I am a sucker for a growth story after all and this story, well it was Delilah’s, and there was no one more perfect for her, to help her grow than Will.

I have to admit that there was a moment while reading this, that I thought the drama level was going to be off the charts in terms of other characters appearances here, but it turned out to be very low drama wise, which I enjoyed immensely. Making this story a refreshing change of pace.

It was a love story to be sure, and one heck of one, but it was also a story of growth, change and accepting that we`re all human and we make mistakes. But it`s in the learning from them and moving on to create something stronger and better, where true healing and happiness can begin.

I can`t wait to see where the author takes the other characters in this series next and I`ll definitely be going back and reading book one now that I`ve fallen head over feet for this one.

My thanks to the author and all others involved in letting me read this story before it`s official release. Will and Delilah`s journey was one I was so glad to be a part of.
