Getting fired and humiliated in front of everyone at my newly acquired secretarial job at Morgan Financial Holdings wasn’t how I’d seen my day going.

And then chaos—or maybe luck—ensured.

I was set up on a blind date, shocked that my former boss was giving me a month’s severance, and had the perfect interview lined up.

Maybe things were looking up for me after all.

And although finding a man should have been on the bottom of my to-to list, I couldn’t get Jason—the uber sexy blind date—out of my head. Sexy and confident—or maybe arrogant—he had me yearning for more with just a smoldering look and a smirk of his lips.

But when a night of drinking leads to getting in bed with him and having the wildest, most intense night of my life, I didn’t know if I should ask to see him again, or do the good old walk of shame.

And it’s when I walk into my interview the next day and come face-to-face with my prospective employer that the reality of my situation sinks in.

Because there, sitting across from me with that devilish smile on his face, that knowing expression of what we’d done the night before, is the one and only Jason, my supposedly one-night stand.

Looked like my humiliation wasn’t over just yet.

Review –

Don’t, just DON’T!  If you are thinking of reading to listening to this book-DON’T.

Thank Heavens this was a short book because I couldn’t have stood it much longer.

The premise/blurb sounds very promising, BUT, the story was way too rushed, the characters were not fleshed out and I couldn’t get invested because they acted just plain sappy and stupid. Sorry, but I can’t stand when the  male character acts super possessive, to the point of being a fanatic about it. The female acted like this was just peachy dandy and wanted him to go around beating up people when they merely glanced her way.

Anyway, I was glad when it ended, of course with a sappy HEA, but with the way it was written it couldn’t have happened any other way.

Oh, and don’t get me started on the title –   I don’t know what it’s supposed to mean but it had nothing to do with the story .

Rant over.

Review –
I had the audio version of this book and listened to it while driving around town doing my errands,  That said, it was pleasant to listen to but I think it would have been a hard read for me because it didn’t have a lot of substance and was kid of sappy in places.
