Once burned... 
Finding my fiancée naked on my couch might’ve been a good thing, if her ex-boyfriend hadn’t been with her. For the past eight years I’ve been a witness to the power of true love, but after getting burned I’d decided there wasn’t any hope for me finding it for myself. Until I met Noelle Brandt in a hotel bar. Maybe it wasn’t the most romantic meeting, but the moment I met her I knew I had to have her. The more I learn about her, the more I know I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her. 
Twice shy...
I’d already found the love of my life, but I’d lost that love forever. And I’d been lost ever since. But one night a wounded man makes all of that go away. He makes me laugh, live, and feel alive. When he tells me he has no intention of letting me go, I finally begin to believe in the power of true love again.  That is, until I find out who he really is…and by then, it’s far too late to correct the mistakes we’ve already made. By the time we both know the truth, the lines have already been blurred beyond recognition.

My Thoughts:
Riley gets quite the surprise when he gets home.  Noelle Brandt knows how to relax and have a good time.  Their first meeting is quite interesting.  And from then on be prepared to get comfortable because this is a read that will be hard to put down. 

You will notice that they both seem to have a certain amount of vulnerability that makes them relatable to the reader.  One thing you will notice is that Ryder has a way with words but in certain situations those words seem to get lost.  If you’re going to love one character, you might want to watch out for Emily – she’s sassy and exactly the person Noelle needs in her life. 

Another interesting thing I found, while reading, was Noelle’s choice of career.  It had me wondering what our author used for inspiration. The author also takes the time to sneak in a life lesson about going after what you want to make you happy.  She also knows the right combination that will make you laugh.

This is a story that shows the reader that it’s ok to move on after losing someone special.  They will always be in your heart no matter how much time has passed by but you have so much living to do – and wouldn’t it be nice to share it with someone?  There are some people that feel that they don’t deserve it – but they do.  I found this is one of those books where I listened to the words – they speak volumes.  With the right narrator, I bet this would be a great audiobook (just sayin’).

This can be read as a stand-alone or you can use it as a great incentive to go back and read the rest of the series (if you haven’t already).  I think this would be a perfect book to read for Valentine’s Day but it can be read at any time of the year.  You may also find that you will want to read it more then once.  You cannot go wrong by adding this book to your library.
