Jake had it all: money, women, and great looks. He was happy. Well, he thought he was.
Then, a series of women and a ghost from his past made him re-evaluate everything.
Why had she come back? Why was she standing in his firm's boardroom with his opposing counsel? And the burning question - why did he give a damn after fifteen years?
She had broken his heart all those years ago, and Jake chose to live the life of a bachelor from there on out. Along with his fast-paced career, he maintained a fast-paced social life. It's what worked for him. At least he'd convinced himself it did.
The loneliness of his large home the minute the housekeeper clocked-out and the women warming his bed deserted him left him wanting. Could he get what so many of his friends already had: the woman, the family, the house with the white picket fence? Maybe. But just because he desired those things, things he'd sworn off ages ago, doesn't mean they were destined for him.
One thing was for sure; with Danica back in town, Jake's life was never going to be the same again...

This is definitely a different take on a contemporary romance. Decevito takes off from the get-go and keeps you captivated with her mesmerizing writing and enchanting storyline. Not only did the storyline shock me, but Decevito’s inviting writing drew me in and invited me to join this world. I thoroughly appreciated the hard knocks that the characters lived through, and came out on the other side all the stronger for. Decevito doesn’t simply rely on her characters and their love to bring her story to life (even though this would do it all on its own). She is a very visually descriptive author who mixes romance with suspense and a bit of intrigue. Life takes precedence and shines through. I thoroughly appreciated the fact that most of the major players in this story accepted what they couldn’t change, and fought to change what they couldn’t accept. It drew them together while also making them stand out amongst a veritable sea of romance characters. You get right into the main character’s head with this one. It was such a trip to be living life from his perspective. You can easily love these characters, even though their flaws are apparent to anyone. Overall, this was an absolutely brilliant story. It could easily be read as a standalone, but also fits in nicely with the series as a whole. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to romance enthusiasts anywhere. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
