Will one man change everything Caroline's ever thought about love?
Caroline Lowther’s in a long-term open relationship with her boyfriend of nearly four years, Nathan MacMillan. For the past six months, Nathan’s had another girlfriend, Rissa, while Caroline has yet to find anyone else who interests her in a romantic way. That is until Benedict Grant, a local business man in an open-relationship of his own, approaches her at her favorite cafe and makes his own attraction clear.
What follows is a whirlwind romance where two hearts fall fast for one another, secrets kept become desires revealed, and the shocking murder of someone close to Caroline leaves her world shattered and her heart broken.
Picking up the pieces, Caroline must learn that life has immeasurable merit, love is worth holding on to even if it’s different than what she’s always thought, and every single moment leads her right where she needs to go.

This story about open relationships has forced me to push my boundaries but I am loving the ways this openness seems to allow more love and trust in for all the inter-connected relationships. Caroline encounters Benedict at a café and is attracted to him. She hasn't been attracted to anyone, other than Nathan, her boyfriend. Now, the interesting twist for me was that Caroline and Nathan have an open relationship. Nathan lives with Caroline and they are boyfriend and girlfriend but he also dates Rissa. So far, Nathan is the only one in their relationship to have a second partner. Caroline likes Benedict so she meets him at a club and introduces him to Nathan, following their rules in the relationship. Benedict is also in an open relationship with Miranda, something that she convinced him to do so she could date Len. This is Benedict's first time having another partner since they agreed to this arrangement. He is surprised by his attraction to Caroline. What follows is Caroline and Benedict's romance that is hot, sexy with a solid connection between the two individuals. Of course, when many people are involved, secrets do exist and people will inevitably get hurt. The layers combined with twists and turns deliver an amazing story that will keep you drawn in to the very end. Oh, and don't forget the incredibly erotic scenes that Violet Haze consistently delivers.
* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest review. * This was my first book by author Violet Haze, but it won't be my last! I have already one-clicked a few of her others and am excited about starting them! She is a new to me author and one that I am not sure how I didn't find earlier! I loved this story. The plot was fast moving, the characters were well developed and compelling and the location of the story was fun to read about. The author really painted a vivid picture for the reader. I must say that I was a little surprised about the whole "open relationship" concept and know that I wouldn't be able to do it, but these characters did and it worked well for them. I was more of a fan of Caroline and Benedict as opposed to Caroline and Nathan....but was prepared to deal with both of them in Caroline's life. Of course, what I thought was going to happen never did, instead there was a gigantic twist in the whole plot - and it was one that I didn't see coming. The author took the reader on a fantastic journey as the whole book turned upside down. The plot was quick moving, the way that the author was able to intersect the character's lives and relationships was surprising, as was the ending. The ending was not any end that I could have ever predicted but it worked and I loved it!! The author took all of the rough edges and tied them up in a nice, neat bow for the reader. All of the earlier emotions that the reader felt were resolved and silent apologizes were given to the author for the cursing at her for earlier in the book. This book will take the reader through the entire gamut of emotions but in the end the reader will get a version of a Happily Ever After.... Make sure you add this to your TBR list - it is a fun read that will leave the reader ready for more by this author! It is a fun ride with some mild bumps, but one that you will ultimately enjoy! ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official. ***
