Overview

Ashton Kirk, youngest daughter of a prestigious senator, fiancée of a hotshot attorney, and fresh Harvard graduate, is headed for a promising law career when scandal breaks apart her family. To escape, she rents an apartment in the sleepy town of Paradise, New Hampshire, where no one knows who she is.

Ashton hopes for solitude, but all bets are off when Eddie West, the town’s most eligible bachelor, moves in downstairs. Eddie likes his women and his cars shiny, sleek, and fast, and when he meets his new housemate, he wastes no time getting friendly. While he's looking for a no-strings romance, though, he gets more than he bargained for in Ash, who sees through his bravado to the pain of a loss too fresh to mention.

Can two people from different worlds find common ground, a place to fall in love and build a future? Is it possible to find your soul mate in the place you least expect?

    A sweet read!

    It's Mother's Day, my family has given me a free day to do as I please! It has pleased me to stay in my pj's, to have cake for breakfast, eat fast food for dinner, have a glass of wine, a bubble bath and READ THIS BOOK! A lovely story line, characters to love, some twists and turns, perfectly written and leaves you smiling as you read the last page and close the book!

    WARNING: If you are sick of reading books with a hidden political agenda DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! Starts out with Ashley's democratic senator father who is running for the V.P. ticket found with drugs and a 19 yr old hooker in his car and he is intoxicated on top of all that but lo and behold, he is suddenly cleared of all charges because republicans set him up! Another author to put on my DO NOY BUY list! I buy a romance book to feel good for a few hours NOT to read about someones political views!

    I Also Recommend:

    Better than expected...

    I got this book thinking it would be a quick easy read; maybe even a bit of fluff. While it wasn't extrememly deep, the story was much better than what I had expected from reading the synopsis. Eddie was a much more likeable character than the normal 'player', and the build up of their relationship was sweet. Glad I gave it a chance.

    good .... but ....

    I was caught between rating this book a five-star becasue at times it was that good, and a one-star because it times it was so boring and aimless.
    Allie Boniface tries to do a good job with the poor little rich girl who attempts to transition into a different lifestyle ... but most of the time she seems to be writing about sokmething she knows nothing about.
    Has she ever been into a sports bar or a blues bar? I don't think so.
    The restaurant (Blues and Booze) doesn't seem to have a reality of it's own; her rooming house seems to be a tkypical college-town student housing; the city itself has some reality; but the characters don't seem to have much reality of their own .... and the plot even less because it gets so wordy over things that don't even deserve mention ... it's like she had to make this book 175 pages long, no matter what it cost.
    Yes, I read the entire book ... I just knew it was going to get better and would have some really good twists ... none of the plot lines were unpredictable ... even the final twist was predictable, and it could have occurred 50 pages earlier without hurting the story line.
    Allie, please do a rewrite because this book could be so much better with a bit of tightening ... your goal ... 125 pages of good story .... please.
