There were so many funny one liners in this book that a few times I got jolted out of the book cocoon with a loud laughter. An enjoyable read. Not one to entangle you in it and drag you under but a light read. A heroine that goes after what she wants and a hero who is so irresistibly hot and heartbroken that he never wants to get caught and let go of his bachelor days and yet can't avoid this love. So purchase if you like a light and uncomplicated book that will entertain you but not own you.

Reed is handsome, charismatic, sexy and a total Manwhore who upfront offers a 'one night only' deal to women but he thinks he's got a good reason.... a heart that's been broken by his cheating girlfriend who he hasn't seen for nine years. So he doesn't do relationships, not ever, well not until his ex confidently strides into the Bar to gloat and the beautiful woman he was just chatting-up comes to his rescue. By giving him a kiss that leaves him speechless and then introduces herself as his girlfriend.... which starts off a pretence and a chain of events that'll change both their lives.
Beth didn't have a good childhood and was left homeless when her junkie Mother died which forced her to make a stupid mistake in order to get a roof over her head. But when she finds out she has an Aunt and Uncle who want her she never intends to look back..... but someone should have told her to never say never. She's sitting enjoying a drink in her loving Aunt and Uncle's Bar when a handsome surfer type guy, with a body to die for, starts flirting with her but things go from hot to cold when he stiffens (and not in a good way!) when a leggy bitchy blonde walks over to their table. Beth puts two and two together and knows, from his reaction, that this is his ex so she decides to help him out by kissing him passionately..... but the kiss leaves her breathless and panting for more - much much more.
Because of Beth's 'girlfriend' declaration Reed is committed to go to his ex's Engagement party with Beth who has blown his mind with their sizzling chemistry and lust filled thoughts invade his mind until they take their relationship to the next level. But, despite their instant connection, Reed is unwilling to make it more than friends and sex.... until he loses his mind and his heart breaks when Beth suddenly walks away.
This series just keeps on getting better and better, it's got a full cast of loveable characters who are made up of close friends and relatives (mainly from books 1 and 2), there's a 'mixed messages' storyline with fun, sex, a dirty talking Hero, passion and angst. Mia, Ben, Luke, Tessa and, of course, the sweet little Nolan all play a major part in the story and there's a tense and fraught with heartache chapter which brings out the best and worst in some of the characters. A secondary love interest who's sniffing round Beth leads to confusion and jealousy but the (plot's) climax comes when a frantic Reed, Luke and Ben go in search of the heartbroken Beth.
Worth a credit? Beth and Reed's dual POV love story is amusing, entertaining and totally enjoyable and is the best in the series so far. It could be a stand-alone listen and is narrated really well. Yes, like so many romance books, there are a few parts that would be totally unrealistic in the real world..... but, IMO, that's escapism at it's best which makes them a creditworthy auto download for me.
