They seemed like too much work. He wasn't in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn't know how to pump gas and needed some help.What he didn't know was she was as fragile as they came.The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn't care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

I read this book on November 16th 2013

This book could be described in one word: addicting.

This book was a gift for my birthday from my friend and since she got it in the mail before my birthday, she gave it to me early! (That makes me really happy)
Woods was another great and swoon-worthy character written by Abbi Glines. I imagined him just the way the cover is and I loved that! Della was a girl who felt as if she didn't really belong anywhere. She was always in her house when she was younger and decided, now that she's older, that she was going explore the world. She decides that she needs to become more open and get to know people. After a one-night stand (with Woods), she thinks she'll never see him again. Little did she know that a few years later he would be her boss.Woods is being forced to do things he doesn't want to do, including almost marrying a girl he doesn't love. But when he meets Della Sloane, everything changes.I'll admit, I didn't expect this book to be so... heavy. I'm not saying it is a heavy read but I expected a light fluff, kind of like Abbi's other books. But I'm happy that this book was different than her other ones, rather than the same story line (bad boy, good girl) with different characters. Della was different than Abbi's usual girl characters and I liked that. A great cliff hanger as well. Can not wait for the next one, Simple Perfection.
I think this book was actually a little to addicting, but that's exactly what I want in a book. It definitely held my attention throughout the entire thing. I honestly couldn't put it down to even go to the washroom.
I recommend this book to readers who enjoy Abbi Glines books and who enjoy contemporary romance. If you like Abbi Glines, your sure to love this one!
