really liked it



Whitney Knight is back home and living with her Grandparents. Broke and brought low by her less than stellar choices, she decides she needs a little somethin' somethin' and sets up a TINDER date at a bar.

While waiting Whitney strikes up a conversation with the smokin' hot bartender. When it becomes apparent she has been stood up the two continue the evening back at his place.

The next morning Whitney can't remember a thing and hightails it out of there before Mister Smokin' Hot gets back. Little does she know that their paths are going to cross again soon and things are about to go from embarrassing to complicated.


I really loved this one. It was SUPER cute. It was well written. It had a nice pace to it. It had humor. It had great secondary characters (both BFF's will be getting their own books soon). It was fairly low angst with no OW/OM drama.

Both main characters were very likable. Cole was a sweetie. A former asshole and manwhore he was total book boyfriend material in this one. He was very all in right from the start. Whitney was a great heroine. Funny and sweet. I understood her reluctance and anger at Cole at the beginning. First impressions are HUGE and the one he left with Whitney wasn't the best. I'm glad though the hostility Whitney had towards him didn't drag out.

Overall a fantastic read and I can't wait to get my hands on the next two books in this series. Two thumbs up from yours truly.
