Haylie Betancourt has never had time for love, which is why in high school, she refused to act on her feelings for Will Shaw. Ten years later, a chance encounter with Will has her thinking. Love still isn’t in her plans, but since they’re in the same town, why not be friends with benefits?The first time she and Will sleep together, it’s incredible. And the sex just keeps getting hotter. But so do Will’s feelings for Haylie–and his feeling that she’s using him. When he tells Haylie he wants more than sex, she rejects him. But it doesn’t take her long to realize she wants the same thing he does. After all, sex only gets better when love’s involved.
Review: This was a nice little book. I’m still waiting for the ending, though. It seems incomplete because it just stops…if that bugs you, don’t read this book. And I still don’t know why Haylie was so intent on not living in the town she grew up in. That and the price cost the book another star.
The writing is great and I liked the characters. It seemed slow to me because Haylie spent so much time thinking about how determined she was to go back to New York, but we had no idea why. Fashion Design is a very social subject, and that just confused me more why she was so isolated as a kid. Add an ending, add some motivation for Haylie, and it’d be a complete book with possibly five stars. As it is, I can’t really recommend it. I’m not crossing Karenna Colcroft off my list of authors to read, though.
