Dumped via a text message, Elise has had a bad day. To make it worse, she finds out her former boyfriend is actually separated from his wife, and is now going back to her. This is news. Elise was thinking future, but now she feels like a failure. Determined to try something different from her previous forays into the romantic world she goes to an unfamiliar bar and meets a man who fits what she needs. He’s tattooed, pierced and has an aura of naughty about him. Just what she needs to forget. But will she be able to walk away?
Vinter does his own thing and makes no apologies. He’s happy with who he is and that is all that matters. When he sees Elise he’s knocked out by how real she is. No man-stalking outfit, no inch of makeup. She’s obviously had a bad day and he just wants to make her feel better. A lot better.
Both Vinter and Elise are missing something from their lives. While they are successful and confident they are also lonely. When they meet one another the attraction is instant and enviable. Vinter’s naughty streak is just what Elise needs, and she embraces a new part of herself that was really there all along. If you like a hot read with a little vengeance toward an ex-boyfriend thrown in, you’ll love this quick little gem.
