Cassandra Clarke, fresh out of college and living on her own, isolates herself from the humiliation that rocked her world a year earlier.
Everything in her life is simple and easy until Logan West, the single father full of mystery and sex appeal, moves into the empty estate next door. A guy who easily attracts the attention of available women in town with one carefree smile.
Cassandra is not looking for another heartbreak and stands her ground, but finds it impossible to stay away from the charming stranger when his four-year-old son, Oliver, takes an interest in her childhood tree house.
It is through Oliver where Cassandra’s eyes begin to open to a side of Logan very few people know. The rough edges and arrogant front shed away, leaving the compassionate, yet broken side of him exposed, and finally opening the possibilities to a genuine friendship.
A friendship that is constantly shaken by the undeniable connection building between them.
With temptation arising every time they are near, Cassandra fights to remind herself exactly why Logan isn’t capable of loving her the way she deserves, or is he?
When I first saw the synopsis of this story, I was intrigued. Admit it, who doesn’t find a guy with a kid attractive? Especially a guy who really adores his kid! So right away, I was drawn to this story. Then I got a text from a friend that had just finished it and she was saying how good of a story it was. So when I started this story, I was really expecting it to be good! And I wasn’t disappointed.
There were a few predictable parts, but what book doesn’t have those? The story itself was unique, intriguing, and held my attention. From the minute I started, I had a hard time putting it down! I loved seeing the interactions both Cassandra and Logan had with Oliver. Oliver is such a lovable little guy!
There were tons of twists I didn’t expect the story to take! I liked the fact that they really were building up a friendship and not just jumping in to bed together. Then there was Cassandra’s ex. He’s a jerk, plain and simple. I really don’t like that guy at all! He’ll get what is coming to him one day… I hope. As well as Logan’s ex. She really needs her rear handed to her because she is NOT a nice person!
My only complaint? There’s a cliffhanger. We have to wait until fall for the conclusion of their story! :sigh:
With an unwavering gaze, I slowly ran my fingers across my stomach and up to the shoulder over my slip. Caressing the silky fabric of the strap, I bit my bottom lip and smoothly slid it over my sun-bronzed shoulder. My lips twitched into a ghost of a smile.
Tentatively my finger hooked under the second strap, my breath ragged as my body reacted to the sight of his tongue darting out and licking his lips. My confidence grew with every movement he made, and without hesitation, I slid down the strap. I held the gown to my chest, not willing to fully treat him to an undeserving meal as I turned around to face the pool.
Laughing softly to myself at my brazen actions, I released my hand allowing the slip to fall lasciviously down over my hips and pool at my feet.
