It's been a while since I read anything by T.L. Swan, so when I stumbled upon this one, I had to give it a go. It was an ok read, not the blow-me-away read I was hoping for.

A memorable night of passion refuses to stay just a memory in this sizzling and scandalous romance from bestselling author T L Swan.

I was upgraded to first class on a flight from London to New York.

The food, champagne, and service were impeccable.

The blue-eyed man sitting next to me, even better.

He was suave and intelligent.

We talked and laughed, and something clicked.

Fate took over and the plane was grounded, and we had an unexpected stopover for the night.

With no plans, we made our own.

We danced and laughed our way around Boston and had a night of crazy passion that no woman would ever forget.

That was twelve months ago, and I haven’t heard from him—until today.

I started a new job and met the CEO. You can imagine my surprise to see those naughty blue eyes dance with delight when he saw me across the mahogany desk.

But I’m not that carefree girl anymore. My life has changed, I have responsibilities.

I just got an email.

He wants to see me in his office for a private meeting at 8:00 a.m.

Naughty blue eyes have no place in the workplace.

What kind of private meeting does he have in mind?

I went into this book with my fingers crossed hoping to love it. I admit the beginning was so much fun as I watched the interaction between Emily and “Jim”. It was fun and flirty and I loved how Emily decided to be a carefree kind of a girl, and took a chance with Jim.

However once we skipped into the future and Emily landed a job at Miles Media, we found out who Jim really was and I saw him for the arrogant jerk that he really was. At times he was just mean, and Emily would put her foot down, but she let him back in repeatedly. Other times he was sweet, and would treat Emily well, then the arrogant guy would come back. It was an annoying roller coaster ride to be on.

This book had the potential to be a good read, but there was a lot of unnecessary drama thrown in and awkward twists that I cringed at. The sex scenes were plentiful, and in the end I was skipping over them to get to the storyline. Emily was an ok girl to like, I didn't care much for the Hero, and I actually liked his brother Tristan more. I would pick up his book to see if the author can redeem herself.

Here are a couple of moments where Jim/Jameson lays his feelings on the line for Emily

“Ask him if he feels like he might die if he doesn’t get to touch you again.”
I frown. “Why would I ask him that?” I whisper.
“Because there’s another man who does.” The phone clicks as he hangs up.

“I’m in love with you, Emily Foster.” He leans in and kisses me slowly. His tongue swipes through my open lips with such emotion that I get a lump in my throat. “I can’t help it. I tried to stop it, and I couldn’t. I think I’ve loved you since our first night together in Boston. You stayed with me. I fought it, and still, I couldn’t forget you. I’ve been carrying your scarf around like a lovesick fool for more than a year.”

Originally from Sydney, I now reside in a dreamy beachside town on the South Coast of Australia with my hunk of a hubby, our three children and a menagerie of spoilt pets.

I love Margaritas, Chocolate and a swoony good book with a strong storyline. With a background in Mental Health, I write characters that you want to be friends with, strong alphas to fall in love with and witty women you want to be.

When I’m not writing you will find me in a cafe drinking coffee and eating cake.
