Thomas St Clair is used to getting exactly what he wants, when he wants it. So when a mysterious woman shows up at his door with his runaway dog and her presence drives away his writer’s block, he’s willing to put up with her secrets if it means she’ll stay around.
Mila Elderkin once had a promising career in journalism, until her dreams were shattered by a rising star in the literary world. When fate lands her at that same man’s door years later, and he doesn’t recognize her, it seems she’s been offered a chance for a little fun. Mila’s not out for revenge, especially not once she starts to see the man beneath the persona. But the past has funny way of creeping into the present, and secrets don’t lie quiet forever.
Loved this romance by Lexxie Couper! I was intrigued by the synopsis, and the story didn’t disappoint! Mila is a school teacher, but that wasn’t the career she had in mind. She was on her way to being the journalist she always dreamed of until one man completely derailed that dream. Thomas is a literary genius. He is the world’s most successful horror novelist and hit the New York Times bestseller list at the mere age of 18. Now, he finds himself stuck…the words aren’t coming easily anymore, and he is on a deadline. Little does he know life has quite a surprise for him!
Mila is on her way to a function when she spots a runaway dog and decides to rescue him. When she learns who his owner is, she decides to return him even if she hates him. It’s no other than Thomas St. Clair, the man who single-handedly destroyed her career. When she returns him, he mistakenly thinks she is his date for the night. She considers setting him straight, but he is making her feel things she hasn’t in a while. Plus, she can have some fun with him, not really revenge, but some fun. He is speechless when he opens the door and sees her. She is beautiful, but more importantly, she makes the words come for his new book. He needs her to stay. She decides to stick around, even though she tries to talk herself out of it. She should hate him, but he awakens feelings in her she’s never had. She does the same to him, and as they both get to know one another, deeper feelings develop. But, what happens when her true identity is revealed, can each of them find a way to forgive one another?
I loved the banter between these two. It was sexy and funny. I loved his sense of humor, even if it comes across as pompous sometimes. I couldn’t help but love him. Mila describes him perfectly,
“How could a man who seemed to be living life like an unfettered teenage boy write works of fiction so terrifying, so dark and twisted and disturbing? And how could it all be wrapped up in a package usually found in a GQ magazine?”
Through Mila, readers learn who he truly is, and it’s quite different from what the public perceives. Mila was someone I would want as a best friend. I loved her relationship with her sister, and the way she pushed Thomas made me love her even more! The icing on the cake was Thomas’s dog, Reaper. He was the one who brought these two together.
This is the first book I have read by Lexxie Couper, and I fell in love with her writing and her characters. It was the perfect combination of humor, romance, and chemistry!
