This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When Navy firefighter Nick Palotay returns to Marietta to go on the bachelor auction block for a good cause, he expects it to be risk free. But when he needs someone safe to bid on him and his sister's best friend is coaxed into stepping up, Nick isn’t prepared for the effect Cassidy has on him. She sends his mind to all kinds of dirty places…places his battered heart can’t afford.
Freelance photographer Cassidy Ware is in waaay over her head. She’s always been Nick’s other little sister, but she’s all grown up now and just a glance from him leaves her hot and bothered. Still, she can stay immune to his charms and keep him at an emotional distance because she’s got an agenda, too. She’ll help the too-handsome Nick with his charitable deed, and, in return, he’ll help her keep an unwelcome suitor at bay.
A deal’s a deal, but when their “business transaction” turns into more pleasure than duty, can they walk away from each other without losing what matters most?
Cassidy Ware has come back home to deal with the sale of her parent’s house along with trying to figure out her next steps in life. She has been scared, literally and figuratively, making her very fearful of everything. Except her best friends brother, and her first crush, Nick Palotay.
Nick’s sister and Cassidy’s best friend, Rowan, asks for her help to save Nick at a bachelor's auction. Using money that Nick put up, she is more than happy to bet on him. After some friendly teasing from Nick, Cassidy decides to let loose and be more courageous on their weekend date.
Nick has lost a lot of people in his life lately and has become emotionally unattached, except to his family. He is staying far away from everyone fearing losing them too. A weekend away with Cassidy means nothing more than spending some time with an old friend.
Spending a weekend together Nick and Cassidy share issues from their past and come to understand each other. However, that weekend leads to both wanting more but not being able to come to terms with it. They both walk away from each other only to question whether or not it is the right thing to do.
This was another romantic, enjoyable quick read. I think Nick and Cassidy’s story was even more delightful then the couple in the first book! There were some cute and awkward moments between the two that made them a couple you root for the entire time. I love the storyline on Cassidy’s college story and how she overcame her fears. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more books in the series.
Navy Firefighter, Nick Palotay is wonderful at those sexy, sarcastic comebacks. He's everything I expected and more. This "falling for her best friends brother" story is fun, sexy, witty and the setting was beautiful. I laughed and cried and wished I really knew these fabulous people. I loved how through it all, Nick and Cassidy could still joke and laugh with each other. At one point I actually felt Cassidy's heartbreak over Nick. Nick has endured his share of losses which is hard to move past. The misplaced guilt and the fear of putting someone else through that is overwhelming. The love these two felt for each other is the forever kind but the baggage in their way was too much. The one thing I wasn't expecting was the story of Cassidy's college boyfriend. HORRIBLE!
I am NEVER disappointed by this author and the books she writes. FANTASTIC! I can't wait to see what's next.
