After a devestating break up with her cheating fiance, Savannah Summers delves into her work as the Assistant to the VP of Production in a marketing/production company. Finding refuge in work and her best friends, she finally decides to try her hand at love one more time. This time around she vows to not give her whole self as before and keep her heart closer and guarded more than ever before. Kevin Styles is a smooth, handsome Meterologist at a local news station and is somewhat a local celebrity in his own right. When it comes to women, playing his cards right is his forte and he is just the man to wine and dine her. However, a known player to his heart, he's looking for the right woman to "tame" his wild ways. Just when things are going perfect, Naomi Sanders, a blast from Kevin's past blows through and the drama and lies begin. Shattered trust and betrayal is inevitable. Can their blooming relationship withstand Naomi's tactics, or should Savannah cut her losses and run?
Quick Thoughts: Surprising. Drama. Crazy. Unexpected.
When I started reading I found myself rolling my eyes and feeling like the story was something I had seen before. I felt like I knew exactly how the story would go and expected to be bored. While I didn't connect with the characters, I found that I was completely wrong and this is not a predictable read. It reminds me of one of those Real-Word of [insert city here] where you don't necessarily like the housewives but the drama and craziness is so addictive, you tune in because you can't help it. I thought of it as a train-wreck that I couldn't take my eyes from (not the writing but the plot). If you give this one a try, stick through the first 60 pages or so. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Read this one if you just can't help but like drama and craziness.
