With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him—maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse.

Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did? 

Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself?

Or will they settle somewhere in the middle—establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love?








Natalie Davenport hasn’t had much luck in the love department. Every guy or relationship is worst than the last. Which is ironic because she co owner of a dating company how can she find everyone else their perfect mate but her love life is a disaster. 
After Natalie crosses paths with Colin a sexy successful career at a very popular Seattle radio station in a very interesting way. Natalie’s body and heart are very interested but her mind says run for the hills. How long will Natalie fight her body/ heart before giving Colin a chance? Will Colin turn out like all the other exboyfriends who have all ended in disaster? 
I loved this book because it’s extremely witty with characters dialogue that is funny with so many laugh out loud moments throughout the book. There is also lots of sexual innuendo between Natalie and Colin. Colin is so very sweet and says the most beautiful things to Natalie which melted my heart.  I do wish the author did go into some of the first sexual scenes because I felt like the book jumped ahead without going into what happened. This left me wondering.. How was it? Even if just Natalie thoughts about it were described a little more to bring out a bigger connection between these two characters I would of been happy. This was my main reason this book wasn’t a 5 star book for me. I wanted to experience that connect between these two characters in the bedroom. 
This story is about two people who are very attracted to each other but both have baggage that could make any relationship hard if they don’t move on from the past and work towards a future together. The question is can they do it : heal and repair their hearts and begin to love again. Read it to find out! 
This book ends with all our questions left unanswered so I can’t wait for book 2.
