Definitely one of the better books I’ve read by Aubrey Wright, this sexy second chance story features a couple who hooked up in college and are forced to deal with the awkwardness of the situation when their friends get engaged. The storyline is interesting, moves quickly, and has plenty of steam. While this has significantly better relationship development than a lot of Wright’s books, it still felt more like a hookup book than a real romance, though part of that is storyline-related.
Essentially, the story follows Sean, a DJ who runs into a former one night stand, Shania, when she turns out to be his masseuse. They had a great connection and shared one night together, but college-aged Sean was hesitant to get in too deep and wanted to leave things there. Every time they’ve run into each other since, things have been awkward and their encounter at the massage parlor makes things even more complicated. Now that they’re both a little older, they’re willing to admit that they need to act like the adults they are and finally confront what happened in their past.
While I liked the book, I never truly connected to these characters – there was something missing for me. Probably because things remain pretty casual between them throughout the majority of the book and they don’t get everything out into the open until the very end. That being said, I’m sure fans of Wright will enjoy this quite a bit. Though it’s part of a series, it easily reads as a standalone and feels like a complete story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I was mortified to find my first true love on my massage table.
Mr. Kissable is in for a shock when he sees me.
Ten freaking years he’s been gone, and this is how I find him.
I have half a mind not to tell him I’m his masseuse.
Sean Maddox was the guy of my dreams.
Until he left on tour with his band the day after he deflowered me.
And now I’m supposed to oil him down and stroke his long, lean muscles?
It’ll take more than a god-like physique and a charming smile to mend my broken heart.
Too late. He knows it’s me.
A sudden head jerk.
A quick stand up.
And now I remember why they called him “The Club.”
We have two weeks to plan a double wedding together.
I’m the maid of honor.
He’s the famous Hollywood best man.
Once the wedding is over, we can say goodbye.
Until he finds out about my secret…
Will there be wedding bells or wedding hell?
This full-length, second chance romance offers one hell of a happily ever after and a surprise ending guaranteed to leave you breathless.
