Finishing college and needing money to start her new business idea, Janelle decides to go on a dating show to win the cash prize, making through the first round, when the producers drop a bomb shell on her, she decided it’s time to confront Holden about what happened all those years ago.
Holden agrees to give Janelle what she needs to win the grand prize but only after she agrees to live with him for six months, with no other choice Janelle agrees. They start off with Janelle trying to do everything she can to get Holden to let her out of the agreement early, but Holden counters it every time. Finding that it isn’t working they decide to call a truce of sorts and try to be friends again.
Somewhere in between Janelle starts to wonder if she wants to take the game further and win the money or whether she’s willing to risk it all to be with her childhood superhero.
Well that is something that overall you will have to find out for yourself but what I will say is that the author didn’t skimp on the romance.
Janelle had a secret thing for her brother’s friend Holden from the time she was just six years old but childhood crush aside, until one drunken night in Vegas, there was never any indication that anything could possibly come of it.
But she has one major issue and that is the fact that she hasn’t got a clue what happened that night and when she leaves Vegas…what happened, well for her it definitely gets left behind… or does it!
Because five years later and still carrying a bit of a thing for Holden, she has taken part in a tacky reality tv show in order to bail her out of the financial stress of paying for her college degree. The last thing she needs is to find a man but it pays well so she swallows her pride and signs on …little does she know that signing on the dotted line is going to open a whole different can of worms for her and the solution lies with Holden…let the fun and games begin.
Janelle isn’t the only one that carried a secret crush back in the day (see what I mean about not dating BFF’s sibling…. pointless) Holden too, had feelings for her too and until Vegas had never considered that anything would come from it but Vegas changed everything and now she is back and looking for answers as to why he hasn’t told her what exactly happened.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work out what they got up to in Vegas but this is the story of how they work through the fact that they have to either let that do or find a way to make it work for them…but can they, or is the fact that they’re now adults and that Holden has sat on the info for so long going to be too much to overcome?
I found the balance of the story was one that meant it was an easy read, I didn’t find it too angsty, it was pitched really well and the characters were easy to find engaging.
Janelle and Holden are life long friends with Holden being the brothers best friend that Janelle has crushed on for years. However, right at the offset their story takes a complicated twist following a boozy night in Vegas that Janelle has no recollection of and straight off my heart hurt for poor Holden.
The story jumps to five years later when Janelle returns to confront Holden on the details of that night that has caused them to become distant and even Janelle from her family in an attempt to keep distance from Holden. What follows is a angsty story as these two try to work through their issues that even though they will frustrated me and made me want to bang their heads together at times, I found myself grinning and laughing out loud whilst reading.
This is a great second chance romance that delivers on all points that made me laugh, shout at characters, shed a tear or two and doesn't disappoint in the sexy steamy aspect of a great story. An overall enjoyable read that you don't want to miss.
