Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.

At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.

Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offera wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.

Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.

Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?

Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.

Not with him sleeping down the hall…

I absolutely love J. Daniels’ characters!! CJ and Riley are so freaking gorgeous and so awesome together. They are goofy and silly, while still hot and steamy. The path that led them together wasn’t necessary an ideal one, but it still led them to each other none the less. The amount of guilt Riley consumes herself with is understandable but not warranted. She was in a tough spot and I’m just happy CJ was there to help her.

CJ Tully! Gah! Where are those guys in real life?!? The whole time reading this book I could not stop thinking how scorching hot he is and that he’s such a great guy. He’s willing to take whatever Riley will give him, even if it’s just friendship. He still protects her and looks after her even when he doesn’t think it’s the best idea. He’s respectful, sweet, silly, but still has a wonderful dirty mouth.

Riley is such a sweet heart. She’s shy and reserved, yet get some tequila in her and all bets are off. She knows she cares for CJ more than she should but is constantly trying to do the right things for others, but not herself. She’s selfless and humble. I knew she was falling for CJ hard and fast, but how does she keep things professional and friendly? How does she tell her brother or not tell her brother? All while she and CJ have this electric connection.

This book was fun to read and was easy for me to fly through in one day. It was well written and kept me glued to the pages. I’m such a huge fan of J. Daniels’ work and this is another great addition.
