I’m a yes girl. Get your mind out of the gutter; I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about saying yes to whatever comes my way in life. So when I had the chance to move to Europe after college, I said, yes. When I had the chance to open my own lingerie line, I said, yes. And when my stepsister got diagnosed with cancer and needed me to come home and help her raise her daughter, I said, yes. That’s me, Kenzie — the yes girl! In every area of my life but one —Love. Always the first to leave a relationship. Will I be able to say yes to love — to Kane — to being happy? Or will I simply come undone and be stripped raw?


Don’t let Kenzie fool you! She’s a master at hiding behind a laugh and a smile. Being an attorney, I prefer the facts. This story isn’t as light and happy as my yes girl would have you believe. No laugh can sugarcoat what we are facing: I’ve lost everything. I know what it’s like to be left raw. But sometimes that’s the only way to find love. To strip yourself down, let the other person see all your sh*t, and hope they love you anyway.

She’s a very strong character and very stubborn. She deals with life head-on and she never says no to whatever life has thrown at her. It has not been easy, but she’s moving forward and taking one day at a time. She had no room for any man, much more for romance. She has a new business, she’s living with her sister Tessa, and her adorable niece, Zoe.

She’s not perfect. She has curves and she’s proud of it. She makes lingerie for other women that make them more confident with themselves no matter what they look like – their imperfections, shortcomings, scars or injuries. Talk about woman empowerment.

I love her relationship with Tessa - they have a very strong bond that no one or nothing can come between. It's one of the most amazing and heart-wrenching part in this book. Their relationship that has been tested by time and fate. But Tessa is so much braver than Kenzie. She fought such crucial battle that no weak person could survive. I haven't understand her decision at first, but in the long run, it worked out and it was for the best.

He’s not your usual alpha male – he’s a breather from the stereotype I always read from books nowadays. He’s really sweet, he’s really good with Zoe, sensitive with Tessa and pretty much amazing with Kenzie. He knows exactly what to do or what to say to her. Maybe that’s why Kenzie made a room for him in her life. And the thing he did with the shoes: OMG. Total swoon right there!!!!

I love all the issues that were tackled in this book – it’s real and it’s heartbreaking. I don’t think you’d finish this without your heart aching or without some tears coming out from your eyes. I wanted to talk more, but I’d be giving out spoilers. Just trust me when I say, emotions are just all over the pages and pretty much overwhelming! You couldn’t put this book down, you’d hold on to it until you’re finally done!

Rating: 4.5 Stars 


“I’m the good girl, very responsible, girl-next-door type.” 

Should I tell her I took the virginity of the girl next door?  Probably not.  “I think you’re more than that,” I say, taking a step closer to her.  That wasn’t a line.  I really mean it.  I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think so.  

I inch even closer, but she looks confused — a little like she wants me to kiss her, a little like she wants me to screw her, but mostly like she doesn’t want me to do anything more.  I can’t blame her; we only met a few hours ago.  Deacon is wrong about the one night stand thing.  This woman isn’t looking for a hookup.  I’m not, either.  One night with her wouldn’t be enough.  So I take a step back, my fists clenched at my sides to redirect my energy. 

“That was my first catalog,” Kenzie says.  “I plan on doing two a year.”  She reaches for a sketchbook on her work table.  “This is what I’m working on for the next line.  I’ll be photographing them pretty soon.  The line is inspired by men’s clothing, so pinstripes and. . . .”    

She keeps talking about the different fabrics, colors, and textures she plans to use.  I have no idea what she is saying, but marvel over what I’m seeing — corsets and bustiers, vests with garter belts, bras, and G-strings.  I love that these ideas, these fantasies, came out of her mind.  She is so much more than she thinks, so much more than the girl next door.  

Kenzie flips to another sketch, this one of a navy bra and panty set with stockings and heels.  That will look perfect on her — especially bent over my office desk.  My cock throbbing, I take a deep breath and try to focus on what Kenzie is saying.  My eyes search the catalog pages for anything to distract me.  “What’s this?” 

“Cuffs,” she says, “like on a man’s dress shirt.  But these double as handcuffs.” 

Okay, that’s it.  The arts-and-crafts show is officially driving me crazy.  My dick is rock hard now, and I can’t take it anymore.
