Reality bites. Hard.
The last time Raven did "real" was sixteen months ago, when she spent one unforgettable night with the tattooed, impossibly sexy Nico, and then he disappeared the next day. Since then, she's kept her guard up and her feelings to herself. She doesn't have time for relationship drama when she's busy searching for her long lost sister.
Nico hasn't stopped thinking about Raven---her sultry curves, inked skin, or the fact that he ditched her after their night together. Now that they're living in the same city, he knows this is his chance to make things right. What better way to prove to Raven he's for real than helping her find her sister? But when the lines between right and wrong start to blur, putting his job on the line, Nico has to decide if the risk is worth the ultimate reward.
Oh lala! Kelly Siskind has written yet another amazing novel with downright sexy and honest characters that will charm your pants off!!! I don't know how she does it but she makes her stories come to life and her characters so endearing that you will think they are your own best friends. I absolutely adore her novels and I think many would agree that she is an author that everyone should have on their TBR. With that being said, I swooned while reading this book. Nico has taken away my heart and thrown away the key. He is truly so much different than I first anticipated and am pleasantly surprised (and frankly, excited) that he turned into a man that every woman dreams about. Our heroine here is equally as loveable and I am so glad we finally got to hear her story. Sure, it's a bit more emotional than I anticipated but this adds to the quality of the story. I just loved it to pieces!!!
If you have read the series than you will know that is follows three best friends (each book can standalone though) as they find their happily ever after. Sure there is a lot of angst and some hurdles that each have to go through but it HOW they get their that makes all the difference in the world. In this one, we get an in depth look at Raven and the smooth talking and swoony Nico. These two had a hot hookup back in Aspen (do you remember?!?!) and have somehow come back to each other -- I call it FATE --. But bumps in the road will make it hard for these two especially when it comes to beginning a real relationship. But if they can sucessfully navigate them, it will be all sunshine and rainbows... Right?
Overall, this is a LOVELY book and I highly recommend it. I love Kelly Siskind's books (I have read them all) and will continue to do so. Although I wish this series didn't have to end (this is the final book) I can't wait to see where Kelly goes with her future books. I will definitely be reading them no matter what!!
