Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.
When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each other’s bodies as much as their company…to Miles’s dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off.
On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together.
But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.
Although the 2 book of a series, it can be read as a standalone.
This is one of my favourite tropes: when a hookup becomes more. It is funny, hot and heart-warming.
Miles and Quinn were supposed to hookup for just one night – which turned into a weekend, then into several more ‘hookups’; until the encounters are no longer hookups…
Miles is a ‘by the rules I set’ kind of guy, but he finds himself breaking said rules for Quinn. On the surface, both guys couldn’t be more opposite- Miles, a sort closed off lawyer who is only closes to 3 friends and his parents while Quinn is a seemingly friendly and nice to all, life of the party sort of guy. But both men have more in common than meets the eye.
I loved how Miles and Quinn danced around their attraction with humour, banter and heat. They were really good together – in and out of bed (they had a touch of a Dom/Sub relationship in bed – very light – for those who are not into BDSM, like me).
I’ve re-read this book a few times and it never fails to entertain me.
