Following the death of her mother, this is exactly what happens to Pepper, suffocating under the weight of her grief, she re-evaluates who she is as a person, finding herself to be little more than a burden to those around her she leaves her life and love n order to gain some much-needed perspective. Unfortunately, she is unable to explain her feelings and leaves without decision causing the devastation of Tank's heart. Six months without contact, Pepper is a changed woman, having gained self-awareness she returns to her home in he hope of reconciling with Tank. Although her actions were thoughtless and aused a great deal of hurt to both herself and Tank, it was unintentional, Pepper was blinded to everything outside her own pain. It is only through her gaining self-awareness that she realises the thing she wants most in life is Tank.
Taking responsibility for her actions, Pepper's unexpected return creates conflicting emotions in Tank, from bitterness at her leaving to relief at her return. Tank does not do well at processing his emotions creating additional damage to already fragile feelings. The chemistry between Pepper and Tank has never diminished and neither has their connection as much as they try to deny it.Read more ›
There is hardly any plot. The small mystery plot in the story was ridiculous and over in a page or so using 'tell' not 'show'. This was like a debut self published attempt. It was dire.

I tried I really did, but as a reader I personally enjoy a bit of story development with my inner monologue. By the point I stopped reading Pepper and Tank had said about 30 sentences to each other, most of them no more than a few words long, and I was still struggling to understand what was going on apart from the fact she’s returned unexpectedly to Toronto from a six month trip to Bali after the untimely death of her mother.
Add in another completely random woman by the name of Olivia, who may or may not be stalking Tank after only three dates, and this is a story for me that needs to give out more pointers in its early stages as to what its actually about.
It was the stuff that romance novels were made of…
Notsomuch, told from dual POV, or should I say dual inner-monologue you really see a lot of the inner working of this pairs minds, and I can’t really say anything coming from either of them really endeared me in anyway either, and I think this is the main problem, if you want to fill a book with lengthy inner monologues you need to progress the story within them as well as develop the reasonings the characters are at the point they are with each other, you don’t really get that and because of it I had absolutely no investment or interest in seeing whether he lets her back in his bed or not.
Not a winner for me on this occasion, the author is new to me as well, in all honesty I am not sure I would look too read more after reading this one, if this is her usual writing style I am pretty sure it wouldn’t work for me in future books either.
ARC generously provided via Netgalley, I am sorry I cannot offer a more positive review on this occasion.
Not sure about this book I read some of the other reviews and when I saw some didn't like it because of the lack of dialogue, so I went into the book with these reviews going through my head but I actually enjoyed the book.
Pepper lost her mother and she blamed herself but instead of talking about her feelings with long term boyfriend Tank a retired MMA fighter, she ups and leaves no word to where she is going, and now 6 months later she is back and she wants Tank but she is unsure of the welcome she would get from him. But upon seeing her all the feelings he thought he had were gone come rushing back. But will Pepper tell him where she has been for the last 6mths or is she just back because she has run out of money and has a share in the restaurant they planned on opening together.
The sexual tension between the two main characters is there but there was just something missing and the lack of dialogue didn't really bother me the book was done from both POV. Although I would have loved to seen more drama from Olivia and Mr stalker.
