Synopsis:
This book is book one in a three part series, so not all matters are resolved at the end of the novel. It is also meant for ages 18+ due to yummy adult content ;) 

Happily ever after doesn’t exist. Not just in the romantic sense, but in the sense that there will never be a point in life that will contain no more obstacles.
 

Josie Sommers is a nerdy twenty four year old, elementary school teacher who has always considered herself a strong person. But with the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break.
 

When he betrayed her in the ultimate way, she never thought she would let him back into her life, let alone open herself up to falling back in love with him.
 
Plagued with resentment and the burden of her own dishonesty,
 

Josie has to decide if forgiving and coming clean is worth the risk of losing him again. With so many hurdles, we know that Josie’s story is no fairytale.
 

That’s a promise.

Excerpt:
“You are gorgeous, as always, Josie.” He turned me around and brought his lips to mine. He kissed me slowly, and I could feel myself getting heated. He grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the bed. I was a little embarrassed when he started undressing us, unable to believe that I agreed to do something so risqué. He position me in a particular way, and went back to his cameras to make sure his shot was right and to set up timers on them.

“Okay, don’t think about the cameras,” he said, coming back to me. He started sucking on my neck as his hands roamed my thighs, stomach, and then my chest. I tried to ignore the cameras and focused on his tongue and mouth on me.

Click. He brought one of my breasts into his mouth and sucked on my hard nipple. His tongue always knew how to make my body feel good. Click. I moved my hands into his shaggy sandy blonde hair, and arched my back, needing more of him. Click. Seth aligned his chest with mine, and went back to assault my neck as I moved my hands to rub his shoulders and arms.  Click. His other hand that wasn’t fondling my breast, moved its way in between my legs, and rubbed me. I gasped at the feeling of increased pressure on my clit. Click. His fingers really were magical. It didn’t take me long before both the pressure of his mouth on my neck and breasts and the rubbing of his fingers against me, made me come. Click.

“So sexy,” he whispered, before putting on the condom he had ready on the bed.

His eyes were hooded with desire. He positioned himself in front of me and moved my long hair in a way that covered my breasts. Click. He eased inside of me gently, and then pulled back out fast. Click. He teased me like that for a while, as I whimpered with need. I decided to sit up and grab onto his back, nearly clawing him to finally give me what I needed. I started to raise my hips to his at a better rhythm, loving the small whimper that came out of his mouth. Click.




My Review

Josie Sommers is a nerdy twenty four year old, elementary school teacher who has always considered herself a strong person. But with the loss of a loved one and the return of someone she vowed to never see again, her strength starts to break. You see, Josie experienced a life-changing event that left her both physically and emotionally scarred. She spends the first 2 years after the even staying at home to go to the local community college. When she finally feels that she can be herself and not panic constantly, she goes away to school to meet up with her best friend Seth. She also meets Blake, and that’s when her life starts to get better.

From the very first scene I fell head over heels for Blake. He is the boy next door with the good looks and charming personality. I love the way he treated Josie from the beginning. The chemistry and sexual tension between the two of them was off the charts. The sex scenes were smoking; you could almost feel the passion between them. Blake was just perfect…. and then, he wasn’t.

After going home to meet Blake’s family, Blake learns of a secret that threatens to destroy the relationship he has with Josie. So instead of coming clean, he pushes her away…right to the arms of her best friend, Seth.

Seth I loved too, but not in the same way I loved Blake. He is a playboy, with the bad boy vibe. You know the ones…covered in tattoos with a new chick every day. His loyalty and his determination to keep Josie happy and safe was what I was attracted to with him. He was always there for her when she needed him most.

So, we get to the end of the story and im hoping a praying that I get what I want. Blake’s secret is out and all seems right with the world and then BAM! I mean, what?!?! How did that happen? Don’t get me wrong…its not a throw your kindle against the wall kind of cliff hanger but I sure wasn’t expecting it! There are so many twists and turns in this story but that last page....damn! Ms Klahr left me reeling on the edge of my seat anxiously awaiting book 2!

So, Are you gonna be Team Seth or Team Blake? You will just have to read the book and find out.
