When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she’s ever wanted—a successful bakery, a the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house.
Who could possibly make her want to throw all that away?
Then Miles Haas comes back to town.
But he’s no stranger—they’ve known each other since high school. Plus, he’s only around for the summer, he’s still a shameless playboy, and he makes a living writing articles for a men’s magazine with titles like 'Should You Bang the Boss’s Daughter? A Flowchart' and 'Butt Stuff for Beginners: A Field Guide.'
He’s not the man of her dreams, and she’s not about to abandon everything she’s worked so hard for just for a little fun. Except he makes her laugh like no one else, smells like heaven, and looks sexy as hell in those panty-melting glasses.
I really enjoyed reading some of this authors work in the past, so when I saw this book on Kindle Unlimited, I knew this would be a book I wanted to try out. I also seem to be reading a lot of books that are the second in a series, but without a doubt this is a standalone, so feel free to pick it up and enjoy it on its own.
I like Natalie, first, and foremost, I totally liked her. I liked that she was so driven, and how she goes after what she wants. I mean this woman is kind of my hero, she wanted to own a bakery, so she opened one all on her own. She wanted to own a cute house of her own, and she bought it all on her own, and more than that she plans on fixing it up on her own. Yes, she has a boyfriend, but he is like the least helpful of guys, and worse than that he’s a serious skeeze ball. So when I psychic tells her that everything is going to change when a man who’s names she doesn’t even know is going to upend her life, well let’s just say she is not at all inclined to believe it.
Enter Miles. The guy from Natalie’s past. Sure they have been friends for most of their lives, so there is no way he could be the stranger right? You would be wrong, after all Miles might not actually be his name, lol. Anyway, Miles is kind of childish. He lives in that perpetual age of a young adult male, trying to conquer the world of willing female fans, he’s a famous writer about sex, and well he just has that cocky carefree attitude that basically only a select few people ever acquire. He’s definitely a hot guy, but would you really want to date him, eh I’m on the fence. The real redeeming quality about Miles is that he without a doubt cares about Natalie, and I don’t think he would ever really do anything to hurt her.
I do love romances where friends start up a relationship, although in this book I don’t know if I would call what they were doing starting up a relationship, I mean honestly it’s more like a friends with benefits situation, because frankly, these are two people who seem to be incapable or lowering their guards and admitting their feelings to each other. This book was definitely a fun ride for me, there were funny moments, sexy moment, sad moments, and moments where everything was just heightened and I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. If you like friends to lovers romances, well let’s just say this is a an easy book to recommend.
