Loose ends have a way of tripping you up…
Years ago, a law school graduation weekend in Vegas had been part of Lily MacPherson’s plan. Waking up next to a naked Adonis with a ring on her finger was not. After a quick annulment, she relegated Caleb Anderson to her late-night fantasies—and very short list of mistakes—until his voice on the other end of the phone asks a favor that could shake the foundations of her neat and tidy future.
Caleb is still haunted by Lily’s horrified expression that morning in Vegas. At least it had made it easy to set her free…except they aren’t. The papers were never filed. And when the nosy patroness who could launch his painting career insists on meeting his “wife”, does he confess, or call Lily? He calls Lily.
When she steps off the plane, Caleb’s determination to play tour guide disappears in the San Francisco fog. Lily thought she could keep up the pretense for one weekend, cut the last tie to her past, and move on. But their chemistry still pops and sizzles, finally exploding into passion at Caleb’s studio.
It’s everything they remember…but so is the yawning chasm of differences that, in the end, could once again drive them apart.
Warning: Contains balmy ocean breezes, coffee as seduction, the creative use of melted chocolate, and naughty shower lovin’ that gives new meanings to the term “shower head”.
Three years ago, Lily spent a weekend in Las Vegas where she met Caleb and the two shared a passionate, drunken night together. By morning they were married, with no recollection of the ceremony. Filing for an annulment, Lily thought the entire ordeal was behind her until out of the blue Caleb calls her up and relays news that the paperwork had never been processed.
Next thing you know, she's on a plane going across the country to play her part as his wife for a woman who holds Caleb's career in her hands.
Lily and Caleb fall into an easy rhythm while playing pretend and find the attraction didn't die in Vegas. Despite Lily being in a relationship, it's one that doesn't require her fidelity and neither is she inclined to give it. I will never understand those types of 'relationships'.
The romantic in me was all sighs at the end of this book. Props to Caleb for such a grand display. He's been hung up on Lily for the entire three years although he doesn't see himself ever living up to her ten year plan. But they click and the passion carries them from there. Very nice. 4 out of 5 stars.
