My Review:
While I own book #1 in this series in my print tbr, I haven't read it yet. I need to change that now, because I really enjoyed this story. 

Wendy and Noah have a history. He was her best friend's older brother, and they bonded by the fact that they both had to mature before they should have. For Noah, that meant he worked two full time jobs on top of going to high school full time. Wendy was the shy wallflower in high school, but her life was changed when Noah stood her up at the prom. From that moment on, Wendy decided to be a stronger, more assertive person. No one was going to ruin her life again. She could rely on one person and one person only...herself. 

For Noah, he has no idea why Wendy has avoided him since that night. To him, they were going just as friends...no big deal, so when he got offered a second shift to work, he didn't think twice about not showing up for their 'date'. 

They had chemistry back then and that's increased even more now. To make things even more tense and sexually fraught between the two of them, they're both lawyers. They're experts at arguing and do it all the time. It's definitely a sort of foreplay for the two of them. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The dialogue is witty and fast and fun. The story was interesting and completely captured my attention. 

I loved the story and am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest and voluntary review.
