The biggest mistake of Elyse Zemanski's life was falling in love with Adam. When a night of sexual fantasy went too far, she was crushed and couldn't leave town fast enough.
The biggest mistake of Adam Vostek's life was letting Elyse go. He'd been afraid of the love she promised and pushed her away—into another man's arms...and bed.
When Elyse returns to Summit to help a friend, Adam wants a second chance to prove he’s worthy—in and out of the bedroom. She claims she's over him, but one look from those smoldering dark eyes, and she throws caution to the wind. Elyse offers him seven days of wild sex, hoping to get him out of her system. Adam's good to go on the sex. But will a week be enough to win back Elyse's love and trust?
Can the pains of the past really dictate how your future goes? That is how Adam Vostek feels. After growing up in a less than stellar home, he hasn’t been able to open up to anyone. But after meeting Elyse Zemanski, he can’t seem to get enough of her, and when they are apart this pain starts in his chest, but that isn’t love….is it? But when the emotions get too thick, Adam has to find a way to push Elyse away, because if she knew the truth than she would run from him as fast as possible. But will pushing her away make him feel better, or when Elyse leaves is she taking his heart with her?
Elyse Zemanski has been madly in love with Adam since the first day they met at the Hi-Lite Bakery where she was working. But when Adam brings another man into their bed, she is taken aback by it and then a cold realization hit: if he loved her he wouldn’t ask her to do this.
This was a really good story that I truly enjoyed reading. The characters were well thought out and the story line believable. It moved at an easy pace. I read this book in one sitting, but felt there needed to more to the story because of the other characters involved.
I really enjoyed Nona Raines work. The writing was smooth, the sex hot and the ending satisfying. She will definitely go on my short list of go-to authors. This book does not disappoint.
