Savannah Jensen’s well-planned life offers everything a woman could want except a driving passion to override self-imposed rules. At twenty-nine, the clock isn’t screaming, but it has begun to tick loudly, so when a friend convinces her to attend a bridal blow-out sale, she’s not exactly excited about the reminder that she is alone, especially when a gorgeous man sweeps her into a sensual dance that threatens everything she has ever believed in.
Gavin Ferguson doesn’t believe love exists, but when he picks up the tuxedos for his sister’s wedding, fate, lust, and the family curse throw him a curve. Suddenly, he longs to convince the beautiful woman in ivory that she should be his—at least until he can sate the sexual fire she ignites. Yet, distrust born of disappointment and betrayal insists he protect his heart from the lie of perpetual happiness shining in her eyes.
Once Savannah and Gavin dance, raw desire, too hot to ignore, sweeps them toward insanity with nothing to cling to except sweet restraint.

Reviewed by: Lori Book provided by:Publisher Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I have to say, this was a pretty good read, as it had a fast pace and it kept my attention throughout the story. I liked the character, Savannah. She was flawed and had insecurities but she was a likable character. I had an on-again off-again like for Gavin, the male protagonist. The guy on the book cover was a good match for Gavin. Hot. I loved the moment that these two characters met and I was intrigued enough to finish the story. I had a hard time liking Gavin the more that I got to know him. He had this push/pull thing happening with Savannah that I didn't like. He would push her away emotionally but then pull her towards him again when she would pull back emotionally. I would have liked their relationship dynamics to have been fleshed out a bit more to have a better understanding of what Gavin went through. I thought that some of the things that the author had Gavin do or say weren't true to his character and it presented him in a negative light. I thought that he redeemed himself toward the end of the story though. The sex scenes were pretty intense and the intimacy between these two characters was fast. Knowing this, it made the decisions that they made make more sense. The secondary characters were just as vivid as the main characters. I really liked Gavin's sister and her new husband and they, too, made a lasting impression on me.
Very good read, I hope Kate and Connor get their own book!
