Story Overview:
A fling of a lifetime...

With only a month left of filming on location in New Zealand, the last thing stuntman Eli Black is looking for is a relationship. He made a promise to his brother before he died that his next stop would be Hollywood. But Eli's will is put to the test when he meets the sexy new makeup artist, Tabby.

Tabby Rogers is heading off to London to a prestigious makeup artist school, and after her ex ruined her previous plans to attend, she’s determined that nothing will stand in her way again. But a steamy, no-strings-attached affair with gorgeous Eli is too tempting to pass up.

The sparks burn hotter than imaginable, but as responsibilities pull at them from opposite ends of the globe, it quickly becomes clear that something’s got to give. Must Tabby sacrifice her hard-won career for love? Or will Eli forever be the one who got away?

My Review:

This is my first Faye Robertson book, but if all her books are this good, then i think that I can add a new author to my favorites list. I loved this book. Everything about it was just perfect for my reading tastes, but at the heart of the story were two characters that I just fell in love with...Eli and Tabby.

Eli is a stuntman. He's a high-energy kind of guy..always on the move and constantly consuming calories to keep his energy up. He's also always positive and has always made it a rule to never date anyone from the set. Regardless of this, he feels an instant chemistry with Tabby. After he finishes this movie, he plans to fulfill his promise to his dead brother to move to LA and do stunt work there. 

Tabby is a make-up artist. She has always used the body as her palette, constantly drawing on her hands and others as an outlet for her art. She's been accepted to a prestigious makeup school in London on full scholarship. A year ago, she gave up that dream for a guy and he cheated on her two months later. She never plans to make that sacrifice of her future ever again.

I loved these two characters...both as individuals and when they are together. Their chemistry was through the roof...not only sexually, but also as friends. They are really just GOOD TOGETHER. Eli gets Tabby and he's just full of these wonderful little things that he does that, as a reader, just melted my heart. Tabby knows that things are going to end (as does Eli) and they both work so hard to not fall for each other, but they can't help themselves. The story here is just so well done.

Supporting these two are married friends....Maddy and MIck. I really liked the dynamic that this couple added to the mix. The movie set background, the friendships, the dynamic...it all just really worked for me and made this a perfect read for my taste. LOVED IT!
