My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

What if One Night Could Change Your Life?

Working in a diner by day and desperately applying for accounting jobs by night, Allie Nobokov fears that her future will be one of a single, virginal, cat lady. A chance encounter with a gorgeous stranger, Zac, awakens her desires and she feels an undeniable connection.

When fate pushes them together once again, Allie’s desires run wild – until, just when things start getting hot and heavy, Zac disappears into the night...

How can you deny a connection so strong?

All that is pushed to the back of Allie’s mind when her younger brother shows up on her doorstep, desperately in need of more money than she can provide… Until she sees a classified ad.

“I met a girl and I can’t get over her,” says the ad, and goes on to describe Allie. “If you look like her, I’ll pay handsomely for one night with you.”

Can Allie summon the courage to answer the mysterious ad and go through with what it entails? And can she convince the enigmatic Zac to push aside his demons and give their love a chance?

A Sexy, New Adult Story

I was drawn into this book from the first time I read the description. And hooked from the first page. But I seriously hated the ending.

I just felt like the description promised a full length novel. There was no mention that this was going to be an ongoing serial novel. If I had known, I probably wouldn’t have picked it up. The end was awful. I can’t even call it the end. It was like the end of a chapter and the rest of the book wasn’t there. And that seriously drives me nuts.

I actually liked Zac and Allie. I thought they had great chemistry. And I thought Allie was a believable heroine. He was easy to identify with. And I felt for her situation. I was really into their story, cruising through the book when I hit the cliff at the end. And it all keeps coming back to that for me. It was lick a splash of cold water…it was unpleasant in those circumstances.

I will continue with the story, but it won’t be until all the pieces of it are out. I tend to lose interest with serials because I hate waiting forever for bits and pieces. But as an overall, average length book…this could have been great. 

*I received an advanced copy from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*
