Brendan Clark had loved one person his entire life. He could ran away with the boyfriend of the year award – but he was betrayed by the one person he trusted the most. She cheated on him and left him for another man. So, he decided enough was enough. He was now on the prowl – together with his buddy, Mark and the rest of the gang, there was no way he was letting any woman to break his heart once again. He will do casual, have sex out of necessity rather than emotions.
She had loved him since she first saw him, and Brendan had never even noticed that Annie was alive. Now, after four years, he’s single. It was her time to shine, to finally make the move for him to notice her. She had been waiting for this all her life.
But all her plans went into drain, and her heart were shattered all over he places when he notices her friend rather than her, and when her supposedly-friend jumped into her forever-love for a roll in the hay. Suddenly, she wanted to escape. She wanted some change – he saw her, but he didn’t really see her. She was just some girl not worth of any attention, and it was killing her. How can she loved him all this time, and just proved himself worthless of her emotions?
Then, she made a hasty decision to just get out of school, packed her bags and go to Europe. Five years later, she came back, eager to start a new in the city that had broken her heart.
It was short, sensual and casual. It’s amazing what broken hearts and betrayals can do to good people. It changes them – makes them hard, and makes them different. I was sad for Brandon and Annie, I wished Annie was brave enough to tell him about what she feels rather than ran away. Brandon wasn’t that bad, he wasn’t just in a good place at that time that Annie wanted that chance. But since this is just the first book, I am fervently crossing my fingers that fate would give them that chance they both needed in the next ones.

Sabrina Lacey is like many women in modern times - she's been a lot of things to a lot of people. A wife, ex-wife, daughter, teacher, stand-up comedienne, wackadoo, loyal friend, fed-up bartender, fashion photographer, lazy bones, bitch, and sweetheart (though less often than bitch). She lives in way too dry Los Angeles where she wishes there was more thunderstorms. Who doesn't love a good thunderstorm...
Pour a nice glass of wine, and enjoy the ride. ;) Cheers!
