My life just went South…
Twenty-four hours. That’s how long it took my life to flip upside down.
Wake up in bed alone after the best night of my life? Check.
Get fired instead of the promised promotion? Check.
Wealthy parents cut me off when I refuse to follow their path for my life? Check.
Now I’m in Cricket Creek, SC—a place where no New Yorker belongs—disowned and broke, with a new job that I can’t mess up. Oh yeah, and staring at my one-night stand, who happens to be the complete opposite of my type.
Noah Hunter never should have made it back to my apartment in NYC, and I definitely shouldn’t be in his small town. But fate had another plan. Or a horrible sense of humor.
Who knew Mr. Wrong could feel so right…

This past month I’ve been reading either really good books or really bad ones (which makes me kind of sad) and while this one was not amazing it was still pretty good and I really liked it. This is my first Melissa West book. I haven’t even read No Kissing Allowed (but now I want too because I need to know Cameron’s story).
I really liked the characters in this book. I loved Grace. Being from a rich family she could have been one of the “typical” spoiled little mean girls but she wasn’t. Grace was used to have everything but that didn’t mean that she didn’t want to do things by herself. I loved the fact that she still wanted to have her own business without her dad’s help. I think it’s great she was like this and that she showed that money is not everything that matters. Noah Hunter was amazing. He was just a great character. I loved him and I loved how much he cared about his little brother Jonah because it showed that he had a sweet side and there were really important things in his life. I really liked both these characters and the chemistry between them. They were good together. Not only I loved the main characters but I also loved the side characters. They were all so amazing and supportive of their friends. I really enjoyed that.
This was an easy book to read. It was fast-paced, I liked the writing and also the fact that it had a dual POV but something was off to me that didn’t allow me to love this book more. For me the big problem in this book is that it was too fast. Everything happened too fast between Grace and Noah and even the big conflict in the end was too fast. I would have liked to see Grace and Noah talking more and connecting more and I would have loved if Noah had told Grace about his past in a different situation and with more depth. I think his past was a big part of him and it was handled the right way.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a fast read and I really liked the characters. If you love NA romances you should give this one a try.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
