Publisher's Summary

One kiss can change everything.
Fun and flirty Monica Stevens lives for chocolate, fashion, and that order. And she doesn't take life too seriously, especially when it comes to dating. When a night of innocent banter with Seattle's hottest NFL quarterback turns passionate, she fears that everything she once managed to protect will soon be destroyed.
Seattle's most eligible bachelor, Zachary Ryan, is a workaholic by nature, an undercover entrepreneur, and passionate about the organizations he supports. He's also addicted to Monica, the curvy brunette with a sassy mouth - and not just because she tastes like strawberries and chocolate. She's as challenging as she is decadent, as witty as she is charming, and she's the perfect distraction from the daily grind.
While Monica comes to a crossroads in her life, Zachary becomes an unavoidable obstacle, forcing her to stop hiding under the bleachers and confront the demons of her past. But as their connection grows stronger, she knows it only brings them closer to their end.
It's time to let go.
To have a future, we must first deal with our pasts. But what if the two are connected?

Loved it!

After a recommendation of this author, I was eager to give this story a listen. A sports romance, we meet Zach, quarterback of a professional football team. He is interested in Monica, though no matter how hard he tries, he cannot seem to break her walls down, though he can see that she wants him to. What he doesn't know is her past, and how he plays a part in it. This story has a lot of components in it, not just your typical contemporary romance. Tying in a painful past, with many unanswered questions, Monica's complex character is intriguing. To have a man like Zach in the mix of it all, coaxing, loving, and even hurt and angry gave the story a little angst, a slow burn and the window she needed to get her life in order. She is not your typical heroine trying to work out a bad relationship, but she carries a lot of weight on her shoulders and hides from her past. The answers she finally gets are not expected, and for me created a really wonderful story. I will definitely look for more by KK Allen.

To have this story brought to life by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross is a pure treat. Given the role of Monica, Kai had to revel in pain and indecision, as well as love and passion. You can feel that all through her performance. Wen as Zach portrays frustration, love and understanding with that little chuckle that always brings a smile to my face. The combination of the two is magic.
