Summary

From New York Times best-selling authors Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland comes a new stand-alone romance.

It started when I hosted a little party for a bunch of new friends.

Though “friends” might not be the right word since the invitees were all the women I’d found out my boyfriend was talking to behind my back. When the guest of honor walked in—aka my now ex—things took a turn….

Unfortunately, a stranger witnessed the whole blowout. I was in a mood that night and ended up giving this gorgeous guy an attitude, too. As if my night could get any worse, before he stormed off, he informed me he was actually my landlord.

Colby Lennon, along with three of his friends, owned the building where my tattoo shop was located.

He and I were total opposites.

He wore a tie, oozed confidence that came with years of women falling at his feet, and wasn’t afraid to say what he wanted, which lately—was me.

I hated that I found myself attracted to him.

Especially since I was supposed to be on a self-imposed dating hiatus. Yet the two of us couldn’t seem to stay away from each other. We started hanging out, as friends.

I even went as far as making rules for what he’d dubbed our “undates.”

But eventually, our explosive attraction became too much to bear, and we broke our resolve. I let my guard down and started to really fall for Colby.

Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn't prepared for where I'd wind up when the ride was over.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

A sweet romantic drama

What started off as a sweet, fun and sexy audio soon took a dramatic turn that I didn’t quite see coming. When super sexy businessman and single dad Colby Lennon meets independent sassy tattoo artist Billie, it’s not exactly love at first sight, but when Colby’s adorable daughter gets in the mix a budding friendship soon blooms. Even though Colby wants more, he’s willing to wait, he’s a patient man after all, and just when things are falling into place there’s a huge spanner thrown in to the mix. I loved both Colby and Billie, together they were adorable, I wasn’t happy with how some of the scenes played out, but that’s on me, Colby didn’t always make the best decisions, all part of the story I know, it added to the angst factor, all part of the drama. Narration by Zachary Webber & Maxine Mitchell was of course spot on, they’re a fantastic duo and I could listen to them all day.

Love, Love, Loved it!

This was such a brilliant book. I was rooting for Billie and Colby all the way through the story. It made me laugh, made me angry (on their behalf) and made me shed a few happy tears too!
I really hope that the rest of Colby's friends will get their own books too. Would love it if this was the start of a new series.
As always, the narration by both Zachary Webber & Maxine Mitchell was brilliant!
