Max was Sarah Cole's knight in shining armor in
college and their friendship was warm and tender. It ended
abruptly when Sarah offered Max her virginity. Max refused.
He was convinced Sarah could do better with someone else and
he wanted no responsibilities. He broke Sarah's heart.
Fast forward eight years later, Max is single, a policeman,
and a total player with commitment problems. His parents were
unhappy and his childhood was rough. He cherished and
protected his younger sister, Molly, and had no plans to
ever have a family of his own. He had everything he needed;
a rewarding job as a policeman, great friends, he loved
Molly and would always be there for her. He spent all of
his spare time renovating and reselling homes and "hanging
out" with his buddies.
Sarah has a big surprise awaiting her upon her visit to
Chicago. Sent there to the Wyse Hotel by Sean, the owner
and her boss, she will fill in there for two months until
her promotion to her dream job in New York City is set.
Sarah attends a wedding with Sean for his buddy. Upon
arrival she hears a familiar voice. BAM! She would
recognize Max Brandt anywhere, anytime. As he turns
and meets her eyes, her heart stops. Handsomer than ever,
his crooked smile lights up the whole room. When he sees
she is with Sean, he immediately begins to question why?
Sean tells him she works for him and he needed a plus one
for the occasion and strolls off to mix with his other
friends. Max and Sarah catch up and laugh at old memories.
The magic is still there. When Max hears she will be in
Chicago for a few months, he decides to woo her with no
strings attached. Sarah agrees but has one favor she
requests. "Will he take her virginity?" An argument ensues
but finally Max agrees with a plan of his own. They will
date romantically for three nights, get to know each other
better, and he will prepare Sarah in a very patient and sweet
way and on the 4th night, "the V-job will be taken care of."
Mira Lyn Kelly writes a delicious romance about second
chances and finding dreams can come true. Sarah and Max
are meant to be together forever. Take this journey with
friends who become lovers and enjoy every sizzling moment.
I did and I loved it!
