Overview

Lily Kember never dreamed a causal introduction to a friend’s friend would change her life, but three days after meeting Kai Jettison, she’s fallen deeply and irrevocably in love.

Kai falls just as hard, yet minutes after telling her as much he has no choice but to rip her heart to shreds, leaving whatever has blossomed between them lying in tatters on the ground.

It’s been five months since that fateful day. Five months of no contact. Now Kai is attending the same end of year bash as Lily, and bumping into him seems unavoidable. Lily’s choices are limited: either steel her emotions against Kai or risk losing her heart to him all over again.

Editorial Reviews

Long and Short Reviews - Dogwood Reviewer
Only Jess Dee can write a short book with an opening scene so hot and combustible that you feel it all through your body.I definitely recommend this story if you need a quick boast of lustful fantasy material. Need a firestorm in your life? Well this might be the tale you are searching for.

An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. It might have taken a while, but in December of 2005, she finally got “the call.” Her first book, Photo Opportunity had been contracted. Now you can’t hold her down. She’s completed a whole host of books, and is finally doing the work she loves most— writing romance.
Jess likes to set her stories in Australia.It's easy to find romance in this beautiful country.

    Worth Every Penny! Should've Been More! Sizzling Hot!! It was FANTASTIC!! A very believable, grippingly breathtaking love story!! I fell in LOVE with these two characters!! I enjoyed Lily's standoffish behavior towards Kai, especially when she elucidates the way he shattered her heart. Then Kai demonstrating the fact that he made a mistake, trying desperately to convince Lily, that she's the ONE! The scenes were EXTREMELY descriptive! And best of all, Ms. Dee used my 3 MOST FAVORITE WORDS when articulating a sordid love affair: tumultuous, traitorous, & tempestuous. WELL DONE MS. DEE, WITHOUT-A-DOUBT BEYOND A 5 STAR RATING!!

    I have now read five of the stories in this Finally Ever After Series. Each one is a complete story in and of itself and they do not need to be read in any order. What I really love about the series is that they are all so completely different even though they follow the same premise of love that was once lost or never realized is rekindled. Anyways, this is the fifth one I have read and it is by far the hottest. So if you are looking for a Finally Ever After tale with some heat, check this one out. It is not what I typically think of as "finally" because they have only been a part for a matter of months and not years, but other than that it fill the notion completely. The story takes place in Australia and is written by an Australian author, so some of the spelling and some of the phrases may be a bit different than what you are used to, but they make the story oh so much more.

    LOVED!!

    Jess Dee proves in this short story that she is just a master of expressing emotions. She opens the story with a scorching scene between Kai and Lily. What I loved about it, is that Dee is able to show in just in a short scene that these characters have more than lust between them. Then she throws us a curve and breaks them apart before things can even really get started. Promises were made before they met, and Kai has to hold himself to his commitment. I love the way the story picks back up with Lily explaining to her friend about what happened a few months back with Kai. Now he is suddenly thrown back in her path and she can't let herself forget all those feelings she still has for him. Even though we don't get to hear the story from Kai's point of view, Dee is still able to express his feelings to make the reader believe that he has made a huge mistake. Although this is a short story and I never want Jess Dee's books to end, it leaves a feeling of being complete. The ending also left a promise for the future, which I just loved. :)

    Love the idea of Second Chance stories and I love Jess Dee what else could be better. This is a short, spicy romance perfect for a lunch hour quicky.

    Lily embarasses me.

    Anyone wonder if Liz, the girl Kai returns to and then leaves again five months later, was actually the one to kick the man-whore to the curb? Guess Kai and Lily deserve each other because he is one who should be thrown away and Lily likes catching worthless excrement masquerading as a man.
