Allie Fredericks isn’t supposed to be in Manhattan, hiding in the darkest corner of a hip bar, spying on her own mother—who’s flirting with a man who’s definitely not Allie’s father. Allie’s supposed to be in Wisconsin, planning her parents’ milestone anniversary party. Then Winston Chamberlain walks through the door, with his tailored suit, British accent, and gorgeous eyes, and Allie’s strange mission goes truly sideways.
Winston doesn’t do messy. But after a pretty stranger ropes him into her ridiculous family drama with a fake kiss that gets a little too real, he finds out that messy can be fun. Maybe even a little addicting. And as the night grows longer, Allie and Winston make a list of other wild things they could do together—and what seems like a mismatch leads to a genuine connection. But can their relationship survive as their real lives implode just outside the bedroom door?
This book was a cute idea that really didn't work very well for me.
Allie and Winston were an awkward couple, and I was never really convinced that there was a connection between them. The initial meeting in the bar could have really set the scene for a lot of great chemistry, but it fizzled for me...and it never really picked up with anything that made me believe that the 2 of them were attracted to one another, much less going to be able to make any sort of successful relationship work.
The pacing of the book was off for me as well, as I thought the book moved too slowly in some areas and too quickly in others, so I was never really able to feel engaged in the story or with the characters.
This was my first book by this author, so I am not able to say if she is one I like or not as not every book is for everyone. I will give this author another chance, even though I am not able to recommend the book.
