A no-strings fling is what she wants…but is that what she needs?
At 22, Gail’s losing her mom to cancer…with only a week to live. Every second of every minute, Gail hopes the doctors are wrong. Then she loses the bracelet her mother gave her. On the edge, she jumps into the pool to find it. Something grabs her waist and flips her over in the water. It’s Scott, the neighbors’ gardener, trying to save her.
The sight of Scott’s wet t-shirt plastered against the rippling muscles of his shoulders and chest gets Gail fantasizing about this Adonis. It’s easier to get lost in a fantasy of raw passion than hope for anything at all.
With more regrets than he can ever hope to live with…Scott’s trying to get his life together. The last thing he needs is a crazy rich girl who keeps throwing herself at him. But he knows something’s wrong from the sad, lost look in her beautiful eyes.
Is this relationship finished before it ever truly begins? Or in their darkest moment… can Gail and Scott give each other hope?
Intended for mature audiences.
I struggled with this book – I just could not take to Gail at all, I felt she was nothing more than a spoilt brat and I am not really 100% how old she is as from the start of the series it was hard to even know what her name was as it was hardly mentioned.
Not only did she come across as being a brat, she wasn’t exactly nice to Scott and I really don’t know why or how he took all the crap from her but he did. As a character Scott was strong, he has his own crap to deal with and she is just adding to it.
Took me a while to trudge through this and I feel the story all though packed full of emotions it was all over the place, I am not sure if that was deliberate or not but I didn’t like it.
Over all it was ok but I don’t think I will be continuing with the next episodes, it just did not hold my attention enough to warrant me to continue.
I very rarely give low stars but this just didn’t cut the mustard for me and this is a 3 stars.
