Recommended for: Fans of KA; fans of angsty, contemporary/erotic romance

Oh the angst! Oh the anguish! Oh the sex! (lol) This book had a lot of it all.

This one was a little different than the usual KA, because basically the plot was about longtime friends/lovers Sylvie (34) and Creed (39) finding their way back to each other after 16 painful years apart...and there really wasn't much else going on. A mildly suspenseful plot that had Sylvie and Creed both working together (they're both PI's) for Knight really just sort of fizzled and had some loose ends. While I did enjoy Creed immediately (c'mon, who wouldn't!), it took me a little time to fall for the adult Sylvie--her badassness took some getting used to at first. But I did eventually enjoy her and respect her.

The book didn't flow so smoothly for me. And I hate to admit it, but half way through I found myself wondering "is anything going to happen in this book--they seem happy--now what?" It was hard to keep reading from the present day and then jumping back in time while KA eventually led you to read what happened to cause the breakup of their relationship. It was sad and horribly painful (those no good parents!) but I felt a little bit was missing. I wanted to read a little bit about what happened when (view spoiler) Those questions kind of bugged me.

I did enjoy seeing Knight(!) and Anya again, liked the relationship between Sylvie and her neighbor Charlene, and Sylvie's relationship with Creed and (view spoiler). And while I thought the sexual relationship between Sylvie and Creed was flamin' hot, dare I say that maybe there was a bit too much of a good thing? When I start thinking "maybe I'll skim over this" that isn't a good sign for me...

They were hot together...

But oh boy, that epilogue? Wow! I wanted a HEA for Creed and Sylvie, and man did KA give them one--and then some!:)

Not my absolute favorite from this author, but still a must read for her fans. And any potential new fans--this can be read as a stand alone. Enjoy! 4 stars
