Final Score - 5 Stars!!!
***received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for honest review***
CAUTION: Marriage most unwanted! That should be stuck on a piece of paper and stuck to Tag Crane's back!
All throughout this story, that was the theme for him - girls are a dime a dozen, getting laid is fine, but relationships and marriage - DO NOT ENTER HERE!
But in this story, you just KNOW that that's not going to happen. Almost.
Rachel is starting her life over - no back-stabbing boyfriend, new career/job, and one major hangup. Tag has just glimpsed Rachel in the lobby of his hotel and faster than you can say DINNER, wants to know this beauty that not only intrigues him, but plagues his daily thoughts.
These two in a perfect world would have, shouldn't have EVER met... but they did. And after a bit of banter & barb trading, the sparks start to fly. I could tell Tag had met his match in Rachel - she didn't fall at his feet as so many of his previous conquests did. So, of course the BALL had to be in his court - he has to break through her highly erected walls. Walls put in place by her douche ex.
And here's where everything starts to fall in place. Rachel gains her confidence back and Tag - well, lets just say he starts to envision HEA. However, he's still pretty much a NO when it comes to marriage and Rachel is an all or nothing girl. And the self pro-claimed "Ladies Man" need to re-evaluate what it is he wants in life - more women, or just "the one".
I loved Rachel. She was there for Tag at his darkest and there for him when he needed her expertise. Tag came off at time as a taker, never a giver - but he helped Rachel gain her much needed confidence/ego back in business and in pleasure.
All in all, I loved the story and can't wait to read up on Eli in the next book.
