Her twin was a dead man. Tattoo artist Kelsie Cole cannot believe her brother would give his best friend use of his cabin the same week he promised it to her. She had been butting heads with straight-laced John McBride since they were kids.
John McBride only takes one week of vacation a year, and there isn’t any way he’s driving down a mountain back to Raleigh just because Kelsie Cole is already standing on the porch staking her claim when he arrives.The cabin has two rooms, and they are adults. They can share a space for seven days. It’s not like they’re attracted to each other or anything, right? Kelsie grits her teeth, but assures herself she can handle it.
Cameron Dane is the shyt! She has such an amazing recipe for a great tale. She takes a high on life atmosphere with determined, addictive characters that are bound to make you smile and then just throws an immensely passionate relationship at you that just works. Takes it down to a serous level only to make it lighthearted and carefree the next. At least in this story.
Kelsie is pissed when John, her brother's best friend, shows up at the cabin the very week she planned to have some peace and rest. She lives to pester the guy though, convinced in her own head that he looks down on her profession as a tattoo artist while he's the buttoned up shirt, business type.
The girl is delusional. She has her own little world going on somewhere inside that head of hers because the truth couldn't be any further from that.
When John finally has enough of her snide comments and refusal to call him by his first name he threatens to shove his tongue down her throat just to shut her up. And well, you know what's bound to happen from there.
The book itself is seven chapters long and spans seven days, one day each chapter. Kelsie and John have known each other for twenty one years but have never gotten to truly delve into eachother's inner machinations. They begin to open up and share memories. They've both had rotten childhoods. But when the conversation gets too deep, or they need to take a breather, there's lots of sizzling sex to be had as a distraction. 4 out of 5.
