Madison Barnett spent one night five years ago with a total stranger who she lost her virginity to and no man has yet measured up to him. She gave him a fake name, didn’t tell him that she was a virgin, and slipped out before he woke up the next morning.
Five years later, their lives collide when she sees a man who reminds her of her one night lover in the elevator of the building to her new job. Hayden Parr turns out to not only be ‘her Harry’, but also her new boss. What she doesn’t know is if he remembers her or not? The tension and chemistry between these two is palpable.
Madison agrees to have a discreet arrangement with Hayden against her better judgment. All she knows is that she wants more of him. Both of these characters to have a hard time opening up and telling each other how they feel. When Madison starts their relationship she doesn’t have much self-confidence in herself and her relationships with men, but after Hayden teaches her about her sexuality she comes into herself, finally realizes she deserves to have good man in her life, and knows what she wants. Unfortunately, that might be never having Hayden again.
This was my first book that I’ve read of Alexandrea Weiss and I read it in under a day. I couldn’t put it down. There’s nothing that I love more than being sucked into a book and not being able to put it down and when you have to you can’t stop thinking about the story and when you’re going to get back to reading it. Alexandrea gives great descriptions of the world around Hayden and Madison especially the architectural parts of the story. If you are good at visualizing what you read then I think you will love the picture she paints throughout this whole story. Unfortunately, unless I know exactly what’s being described I can never create the image in my head.
I have to say that I thought this story should have had a sequel or maybe even a trilogy. I was sad to see the end of Madison and Hayden when they had really only just got started.
