Blurb: When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn’t think it’s love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.
Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.
Review: Holy crap this was amazing! From the very first word this book sets a deep emotional tone and it sticks with it without fault through the entire book.
I loved the way the bits of the past are sprinkled in with the present here because, even though you are getting a look into why Miles is the way he is, you still do not know for sure until close to the end. There are so many scenarios that were possible from the start, I kept thinking that I might have a clue but when that next glimpse or two is revealed and proved me wrong, I’d move to the next theory. I still didn’t know how it was going to play out until it did and what it gives us is even heavier and deeper than the rest.
One of the absolute best things about this book and why the emotional aspects are so powerful is that it is so easy to understand where that emotion is coming from. It is easy to step in to the characters shoes and know why they feel the way they do.
This is not a typical cookie cutter romance. You cannot help but love all of Miles’ broken pieces and Tate for being willing to hold onto whatever jagged pieces she can, even if they do cut her up.
I’d have to say that this is the best romance book I’ve read all year.
