It all started with a cat on my roof. 
My neighbor's Siamese to be exact. 
When Mrs. Higgins begged me to go up on my roof to save Chloe, I did it to appease her because she thought the cat was stuck. 
The cat wasn't stuck. 
But I was. 
The ladder fell, Mrs. Higgins called 9-1-1, and the guy I’d had a crush on since high school arrived with the fire department and saved me. 
To my surprise, he asked me out, and our relationship took off. 
That was until I got the opportunity of a lifetime to go to Paris for six months and didn't see him again for two years when he was a passenger on the flight I was working. 
I was still in love with him, but he told me he was now a part-time gigolo, and there was no way I could ever share him with anyone else. Even if the job was only for money. 
I knew I should have let him go. 
Like I should have done with that damn cat in the first place.

My Thoughts:

Mila doesn’t seem to have luck on her side.  Galen has game when it comes to impressing someone.  Now this sounds like that maybe the stars are getting ready to align but you don’t want to make any assumptions. 


When you see the title you may go into the book with certain expectations.  Leave that behind because you don’t want to be disappointed when the author’s vision doesn’t match what your mind has conceived before ever reading the story.  Plus this way you’ll be surprised by what you find. 


The author does have some gaps in her story but it wasn’t as if I felt anything was missing, she does that to move her story along.  On the flip side, there came a point where I felt that things slowed down a little.  However, that didn’t stop me from reading the complete story.  At one point it got to be where I thought it was going to be steamy but then it felt as if someone shut the valve off.  But I've learned to be patient to let the author be the conductor and if there’s more steam to come I just have to wait for her to add in her magic to fuel the flames.  And my patience paid off.  It also made me curious as to what her Saddles & Racks series is all about.
