Now, it's fair to say that Mia is a bit of a troubled soul, has trust issues and is seeking to mend her broken heart somehow with meaningless sex. Then she gets a "too good to be true" offer and the shenanigans really begin. And what a shady path it is that the reader is taken down.
It was very easy to get caught up in this story. Mia is an intensely frustrating character. Ethan is significantly more likeable, and the supporting cast of Mia's friends all have their own unique voices and character traits,and are more than just background noise to the narrative.
That said, for me at least, the real jewel in this book is the connection between Mia and Ethan. Initially at a simmer, but rapidly increasing to boiling!
Ms Koenig's writing evoked an emotional response from me, and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
I'm still unsure of Ethan, he seems so perfect... But surely he can't be?

~I hated this pain. I hated being numb all the time. I hated that my life's ambitions vanished because of him. I hated myself for allowing him into my heart, only to have him break it so badly that I barely found the pieces. I'd never be able to put them back together. The damage was so severe that any attempt to fix them was useless.~
Mia Ryan may not have had the best family life growing up, but she was well on her way to achieving all her dreams when it all gets ripped away from her as a result of the worst kind of betrayal by the one man she trusted most in the world. Her ex destroyed her, tore away her future, and abandoned her all in one fell swoop; to say she now has trust issues would be an understatement. Never again will she lay her heart on the line and she lives her life hiding behind the walls now surrounding her heart; the only people she allows close to her are her roommates who also happen to be her best friends and the closest thing she has to family. When an opportunity arises to get herself back into journalism, it comes at a price and with a huge risk; but the payoff just may be worth it. She jumps in with both feet, but with a necessary cautiousness and even a little bit of guilt at the lengths she will go to to get back what she lost. When she meets Ethan Fitzgerald she knows she is in trouble; he is the first man to banish the numbness from her soul, awakening a part of her she thought long dead and turning her on with barely any effort... he is also the one man she needs to avoid getting involved with at all costs. It's to bad for her that Ethan has set his sights on her and when he wants something, nothing stands in his way.Read more ›
Mia ended up being booted out of college through no fault of her own, her good for nothing ex meant that when they showed her the door, she was gone for good. But when she gets the opportunity to set her life back on course, while perhaps not what she wants to do, it is a case of needs must and as such she takes the job.
But like they say when one door closes another one opens and despite the circumstances, her new job brings her more than she had considered because it is through it that she meets Ethan.
Ethan is fairly quiet, keeps himself to himself, he has a history that you immediately want to unravel, he was a little like Mia in a lot of ways, keeping people at bay wherever possible but there is a chemistry between the pair of them that is undeniable, but unfortunately in this case I have a feeling that it will take a lot more than chemistry to find them a happy ever after, because this book has enough twists and turns to cause you whiplash, it is full of lies and deceit and you will have no option but to inhale deeply and count to ten just to stop yourself hyperventilating .
I mean how much s*** do you have to have piled on top of you before you eventually stand up for yourself and call time on it all, because dear lord, this is a mountain of pain in these pages
I liked Ethan, he was a great character, charming and strong, easy to fall for and the author pitched him just right because he was easy to get attached too. Mia well she was harder to get a handle on, I thought she needed to just grow up much of the time, she allowed others too much control and seemed content to take a back seat a little too often for my liking but I have to say that I liked her resolve.Read more ›
Read in November, 2014
In this read we have a deadstrong female lead, Mia. She has to question everything in her life after her world comes crashing down. Then we have Ethan, he is seriously hot and sexy and Mia's boss and here is where Mia is conflicted.
There are alot of twists and turns in this read and you will find yourself glued to the pages. At the end of the read you are going to be wanting more, as there are alot of unanswered question.
This was a well written read, with loveable characters, I recommend to all to one click
