Sloane Fitzgerald was living the perfect, California-girl life. Engaged to her college boyfriend, working her dream job, and settling into her new home where she’d planned on living happily ever after. It was storybook perfect.
But life isn’t a fairytale.
Sloane’s world is suddenly rocked to the core with a devastating discovery. Needing both time away, and a distraction from her misery, Sloane heads to Boston to take over her late uncle’s failing bar.
Dylan Hemmons lives a charmed bachelor’s existence.
After serving in the Marines, Dylan returns home to the South Boston neighborhood where he grew up. While working for his father’s company has its perks, Dylan realizes his career passions lay elsewhere.
Dylan aspires for more.
He had no idea it would be in the form of a beauty from California. As their lives intersect, Sloane and Dylan find that the electricity between them is more than they can resist.
But Sloane’s past comes knocking on her door. If exposed, the secret she carries could destroy both her teaching career and what they have together.
Will Dylan believe in Sloane, and stand by her when the truth comes out? Or will this fling be over before it begins, and turn out to be just a physical distraction for them both?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
This is my very first book by this author but I wont be the last for sure.
This books is about finding what you need when you didn’t know you even needed it or wanted it. Dylan is Mr. Playboy who is very happy with the status quo. When he wants company he can dial any list of woman and have it. Sloane is getting over her break up and wondering what a fling might be like plus it might help take her mind off of everything that is going on in her life.
Sloane gets a big bunch of bad news about her fiancée so she runs across the USA to run her recently deceased uncle’s bar. While working one night she meets Dylan who happens to be a much needed electrician. The two have instant chemistry but with him working for her bar, he decides to cool any possible hook ups. Sloane is sad but appreciated his honestly.
When the two end up spending time together over the holidays, all bets are off. They become inseparable. They are enjoying each other’s company until someone drops the “L” bomb right when Sloane gets even more bad news and a visit from her past. All of this puts a strain on this friends with benefits relationship and pushes Sloane away. Too bad for Sloane, Dylan’s family and friends smack him in the head and make him go after the woman he needs to feel complete in his life.
I really liked Dylan’s character. He was really funny, flirty and honest. I enjoyed how he owned up to his feelings even when he was scared out of his mind for feeling the way he did. Sloane, at times, made me want to smack her but I got why she was so closed off given her ex and the “back home situation she has to deal with.
Sierra Hill wrote her first full-length romance after a corporate acquisition led her to a stint of unemployment, offering her some quality writing time.
She loves writing about the fictional characters that live in her brain who constantly shout for their own love story to be told.
Sierra resides in the Pacific Northwest with her husband of twenty years and her long-haired, German Shepherd. She is currently working on her next book.
Thanks for reading and reviewing her books. Keep the passion alive!
