Summary from Goodreads:

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

This story was raw and emotional.

Although the entertainment aspect of this read was through the charts, I found it hard to push through. The storyline was a bit rough for my taste with too many secrets and not enough of a slow drip of info to keep me wondering. Still, I found myself drawn to Miles and Tate, hoping they would push through their troubles and finally find solace in each others arms.

I find it hard to pick one character that I was attached to more than the others. Miles and Tate were great although Miles really needed to let go of his past and Tate needed to be more real with herself. Her brother, Corbin gave me an overly buff jock kind of vibe, which I'm not sure I'm into, but it was sweet the way he took care of his sister... I guess...

My favorite scene was the very first time we met Miles, drunk in the hallway. There was something about the way he interacted with Tate from the beginning that made me have a soft spot for Miles.

Favorite Quote:

"When life gives you lemons, make sure you know whose eyes you need to squeeze them in.”

My rating for this book was 4 out of 5 stars. This might be a bit of a stretch for me as the story didn't progress past "sexy time" until the very end of the book, but it was eye catching.

Would definitely recommend this book to smut enthusiasts as the romance scenes were extraordinarily graphic and spine tingling.
