When the new girl in town, Eliza “Izzy” Forrester decides to hit the local drinking hole, she’s not ready to meet the town’s good, solid guy. She’s definitely not prepared to engage in her very first hookup with him.

Then Izzy wakes up the next morning in Johnny Gamble’s bed and good girl Izzy finds she likes being bad for Johnny.

Even so, Izzy feels Johnny holding her at arm’s length. But Johnny makes it clear he wants more and Izzy already knows she wants as much of hot-in-bed, sweet-out-of-it Johnny Gamble.

Floating on air thinking this is going somewhere, Izzy quickly learns why Johnny holds distant.

He’s in love with someone else. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken. Whoever was up next would be runner-up, second best. Knowing the stakes, Izzy will take what she can get from the gentleman that’s Johnny Gamble. And even knowing his heart might never mend, Johnny can’t seem to stay away from Izzy.

Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. He’s not going back, but Johnny still knows the right thing to do is let Izzy go.

And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips through his fingers.

But that’s before Johnny realizes Eliza moved to town to escape the danger that’s been swirling around her.

And that’s why Johnny decides to wade in.

That and the fact Eliza Forrester makes breakfast with a canary singing on her shoulder and fills out tight dresses in a way Johnny Gamble cannot get out of his head.

Okay, I liked this. It had a different beginning than the other books that KA writes. Is refreshing because is the newest one of her and I have to admit that, once again, I want someone like the main male character of this book for myself. I have to point out that I was a little disappointed that I didn't actually see much of motor oil in the book, but Johnny was too hot so I didn't complain much.

I'm not going to talk much of the story because the blurb says a lot and that's basically what you will get. But what I did like was all those little stories inside the bigger one. This book teases you a lot of what will be going down in the next book because there will be one. You'll get so attached to these characters that you will want more. Johnny and Izzy come from different backgrounds but they match like the last piece of the puzzle. I love all their chemistry and I love to bits that they went straight to the point and no bullshit. They had a problem, they would talk about it.

I liked the end too but obviously, they will be more so I'm gonna wait not so patiently for the next book in this series (which will be the last one, I believe, and I will be happy with that). Just to make a note for the next book, I need it to be like this one, straight to the point. I will also love more motor oil and less moonlight (haha), but overall I just want all the glory of this series. It was a great book and I will recommend it because is a KA book. Go for it!
