Serena Colby wants one thing. Dillon Hamilton wants everything.
Steady, focused graphic artist Serena has her life perfectly planned out. After a childhood being moved from one place to another, she craves the permanence of a home that's hers and hers alone. And everything is lining up just right. That is, until disruptive copywriter Dillon comes blasting into her workplace and spins her personal life out of control.
Serena tries to draw boundaries, but the gorgeous Dillon has a much sexier script for their lives in mind. He's pulled towards Serena's orbit, quickly ranking her sexiest skirts and memorizing the scent of her locally sourced organic shampoo. Serena struggles to remain unmoved by Dillon's kinetic charm, even as she relishes their chats about their mutual passion, the Houston Rockets.
Though order-loving Serena shies away from Dillon's messy complications, she can't escape her fantasies. When Dillon's determined pursuit leaves Serena breathless, it might just be 'all systems are go' for Rocket Man.

Awesome debut novel!
The dialogue written by Melanie Greene was outstanding! It really was as if you were eavesdropping. The story was great. There was just the right amount of details given to give you a clear picture in your mind, but not enough to bog you down.
Dillon was probably my favorite character. He was so honest right from the start and fought so hard to make it work with Serena on her terms. He finally just laid it all out on the table for her and made her see that she had to give to the relationship, too.
Serena was great as performed by Amy Rubinate. Amy Rubinate was perfect at giving Serena's voice an edge to portray her intelligence, show sarcasm in her comments, showcase her sense of humor, but also show her vulnerability and uncertainty at times.
This was actually a really long book. Having said that, I wasn't anxious about the length or getting to the end, because the story line and the performance was just so good.
I think I enjoyed this book as much as any I've read for quite some time. The story and the performance were both very well done. Going to look for more from both Melanie Greene and Amy Rubinate!
