Olivia's in college working her way towards an accounting degree and working at a bar when she meets Cash, a club owner and obvious bad boy. There is an immediate attraction but she has sworn off bad boys. Imagine her surprise when she meets her cousin's boyfriend, Nash...that's right, Cash's twin....and the good boy but he's taken...or is he?

I think I smiled through this whole book...well, except maybe the Gollumesque epilogue. I loved the banter...the flirting and teasing that went on between Olivia and Cash and Olivia and Nash. You can definitely see how conflicted Olivia can be with both men being great in their own ways.

I really enjoyed Olivia...she's so feisty and I laughed at some of the things that she said. I loved her wanting to be a good person and trying not to fall back on bad patterns. Too bad she just can't help herself.

I love both Cash and Nash. I really don't think I could pick one...well, maybe. (Cash!!) ;) They both have great qualities and phewww some steamy sex scenes. I also LOVED having all the different POV's. It was great knowing what everyone thought!

There's some interesting secondary characters. I loved Olivia's Dad and Ginger is a hoot! I can't wait to see how things are with Marissa in the next book.

One of the things that bothered me was the use of "Ohmigod" and "effin". While it wasn't used a huge amount of times, it just felt like it was and I couldn't help but roll my eyes each time!

Okay...so there's a big plot twist and yes, I wondered if it would go that way. I almost wished it hadn't. I really enjoyed the two brothers and wondering who Olivia would go with. But...I'm enjoying the twist as well.

I do have to say that it's unfinished. There's some drama with Cash and Nash having a secret. And I eluded to the "Gollumesque" epilogue with a really creepy individual named Duffy that reminds me of Gollum from Lords of the Rings. He's really freaky!

But 'm really looking forward to the "To Be Continued." This book was nice...getting to know everyone and finding out the secret but I'm hoping the next book will have more substance. I look forward to Olivia's relationship with "whoever" and how things will work out.
