This is a short story about an insecure woman named Kenzie and a womanizing player, Jace. Since their first introduction Jace has been intrigued by Kenzie. She doesn't seem like the other women he's been with. She doesn't seem interested in his money, or his body. In fact she makes it known that she wants nothing to do with him but even though she's saying one thing, her eyes tell a different story.
There are no surprises in this story. It starts off with Kenzie drunk-texting Jace while at a club. When he realizes how plastered she is, he swings by and picks her up. She insists he take her back to his place but when he does she ends up passing out. The next morning she is embarrassed by her actions and is ready to flee the moment she wakes up. Only Jace is ready for the night that she promised.
There was a definite theme to this book and that was the word assumption. And actually, that word is brought up a lot in the book as well. You see Kenzie assumes that Jace is just going nail and bail, when actually he is looking for a future with Kenzie. Her assumption continually ruins things with Jace. Both immediately after the hook up and every time they meet then after.
I think the story was just too short for me to feel for the characters. I wanted to like them but I found myself a little bored during the story. I will say that I liked that the author wrote Kenzie as an average woman and not as a bean pole model though.

Kensington Clarke is focused on her career. She is tempted by the delicious Jace Briarfield but she isn't ready to be a notch on Mr. Wham, Bam, Thank You, Ma’am’s bedpost. One night while out on a rare girls night out she finds herself tipsily texting Jace. She figures he might be just what she needs after all he isn't about to get serious about her and she has an itch that needs scratching. Jace on the other hand is intrigued by the woman who isn't falling at his feet. He knows she finds him attractive as he has caught her checking him out but she hasn't responded to his flirting. Jace has never had to chase a woman before and it is a wake-up call. Can he turn a one night stand into a relationship with a woman as commitment phobic as he was?
I enjoyed the shoe on the other foot aspect of this story and I love that Kensington was shaped like a real woman.
