Rachel Harper is nervous about telling her one-night stand, Carter Brockett, her big news. The thing is, she feels strangely safe with him—worse, she even kind of likes him. But his rakish reputation leaves much to be desired. And what makes Rachel think that Carter will commit this time, when he never has before?
I picked up this audiobook for a quick listen on a trip (it’s only five hours vs. 8-12 like some books). I generally like Mallery’s books, so I thought I’d give it a listen.
It’s a fun story, but not my favorite. Rachel and Carter spend a lot of time thinking about their relationship and what kind of relationship they should have. I would have enjoyed seething them do a bit more or reacting to things happening around them. Overall it’s enjoyable because it’s all of the great, sappy stuff you want from a romance — the chase, the challenge, the HEA — but it did drag a bit too. It won’t stop me from reading/listening to more of her books, but I probably won’t revisit this one.
