Ok, I want to start by saying that I really enjoyed this book about Gia and Gunner – absolutely loved them! Two lost souls who are closed off to the prospect of love and having a relationship due to both having very horrid experiences. Watching these two break down each others walls and actually help heal wounds that run deep and long was heartwarming. They definitely have chemistry and while the underlying issues were dark, their characters were comical and uplifting at times.

With all this great fanfare for this story they do have a previous history with each other from college and it is touched upon but in chunks and bits and pieces and for me, it did not mesh well at all. I was able to piece together things and form a relationship and connection in my head but I found it awkward at times. I think that because I didn’t read book one maybe I missed something to feel kinda thrust into the middle of the book and get bits and pieces along the way. You do find out how it all fits but it was just introduced bizarrely to me and made me scratch my head. I loved both main characters with all their flaws and complexities with the theme of how they heal each other and really did enjoy this book.


“You had sex in here!” I say incredulously.
“What?” Guilt slices through his face.
“That’s why you gave me a buttload of errands to run, you got some booty.”
He sits on the edge of his desk looking like sex in a suit. Men wearing suits were never my jam—I always had a libido for guys from the blue-collar crowd—but the way the suit hugs his biceps is making my vagina jump for joy, and the way his ironed black slacks look around his waist with a leather belt makes me want to melt in a puddle.
“If you’re not next in line to suck my dick, I suggest you stay the fuck outta my business.” His voice is cold, and I swallow hard. I bet you a whole dollar my cheeks turn fifty shades of pink.
I tilt my chin in the air, inhaling. “You smell that?”
“Smell what?”
“It’s me slapping you with a sexual harassment suit.” My threat is as dead as a doorknob, but he doesn’t need to know that.
“The moment you sue me is the day hell will freeze over.”
“How so?”
“Because under your hateful glares, you’re starving for my dick.”
I want to wipe that stupid smirk off his face. “Whatever. I wouldn’t touch you if you were a cure to a disease I had.” The lie rolls off my tongue, and I twirl the strand of hair that floats in front of my forehead with my index finger.
“Liar.” His gaze clings to mine. “I fucked enough women to know when one wants my cock. When you look at me your eyes are begging for it.”
I stare down at the carpet. What can I say? I can’t lie anymore. Every time I’m around him my ovaries are on fire, ready to explode.
“If you got fucked properly on a regular basis, you wouldn’t walk around with a stick up your rainbow ass.”
Gunner doesn’t have any filters. I’m not offended because he’s the type to tell you if your poop stinks and if he doesn’t like you.
That’s just part of his personality. Last week, he asked Mason, during a business lunch meeting, if he dipped his toothbrush in crap because his mouth smelled like butthole.
“Don’t worry, we won’t be having any hanky-panky. Fucking my employee is as appealing as shoving my dick in a vise.”
J.M.Stoneback currently reside in Georgia with her husband and three boys. Her hobbies are reading, writing, playing video games, traveling, and watching anime.
