Gabrielle Willis is smart. She's funny. And oh yes, she's a bit klutzy.
When Gabrielle left sunny California bound for the energy of Manhattan, she was willingly leaving the life she had known for the new life she would create. But was she really leaving something behind or was she running away?
On the outside, Gabrielle Willis has it all under control. A new life in Manhattan, a great roommate, and a good job. But she is haunted. Haunted by a memory she's tried to forget and by a family who's abandoned her. But what happens when what's on the outside is only an illusion and in perfect contradiction to what's buried deep within?
Enter Dane Rhodes. He's gorgeous, smart, and sexy as hell. Just what Gabby wants, or so she thinks. But when she meets Brad Dixon, the sweet guy with the crooked smile, he begins to make her see that the very thing she is trying to run from is the very thing that just may push her to see the light.
Review ~ 4 Stars
Funny, sweet and I loved it! It was refreshing to read a book where I was not left hanging, however this would have been a 5 Star for me had I not felt like the end was a little too rushed. With that being said, this was a laugh out loud, fun and sexy read.
Gabby has something from her past holding her back from moving on. Her friend Fran is trying to help her comes to terms with it and wants her to get back out there and find some happiness. I loved both these characters. The banter between them was so funny and I think everyone needs a friend like Fran.
"Gabby, let's be honest, you need to get laid." "You're not yourself, but I'm sure it's nothing a good piece of ass can't take care of."
Gabby is a kind hearted, coffee loving, clumsy, junk food junkie who you will love instantly. Brad is the sexy, sweet owner of the coffee house she frequents to fuel her caffeine addiction. I have to say that this was one of my top favorite first kiss scenes. I love me some Brad. Why can't all men be as wonderful as him? Any guy who says "your kiss made my hear flutter" deserves to be adored. You will get a HEA and you will finish this book with a big smile on your face.
My favorite quote.... "I was dead inside before I met you. You awakened something in me, and if you think I'm letting you walk out of my life, you're more insane than I am."
