She picked him.
Because I waited too long to get my shit together.
This is all my fault.
I need to get out of here. I need to start over.
I need to get over her.
So I'm moving back to New York.
I'm going back to my old ways. Lots of sex. Lots of alcohol. Lots of fun.
Until I meet Austen.

Great series must read
I just love this series! Right from book 1, I was Team Ryker. I wanted him and Rae together throughout the whole series ... but that never happened, so I was so glad that he was getting is own book. I really didn't want to like Austen ... well because I was still hoping for Ryker and Rae. But I became to really like Austen ... in fact I ended up feeling sorry for her and hoping that if Ryker can't be with Rae, then I wanted him to be with Austen. Ryker and Austen are two broken souls ... they loved and lost! Austen's fiancee slept with her best friend and then he married her, breaking Austen's heart ... and well you know Ryker's story. Ryker and Austen start a "friends with benefits" relationship ... no, not a relationship because neither one of them is going to be doing that again! They set out rules for this arrangement and break the one by one. This is a very emotional journey and then there are the sex scenes ... well let's just say that E L Todd sure knows how to write steamy HOT scenes! As for the end of the book ... WOW! I was not expecting that and that's all I'm gonna say. You'll have to read it to find out. I can't wait for Ray of Life - Ryker's continued story! It doesn't come out until July ... it's gonna be really hard to wait until then to find out the answers to so many questions. I highly recommend not just this book, but the entire series ... you won't be disappointed. I graciously received an ARC copy courtesy of the author in exchange for a honest review.
The story line was there but buried in steam. 75% steam, 25% story. I enjoy Ms. Todd's writing, however this feels like one book with a steam filler so it could be divided into two books. As always, the story follows very closely, with minor variations to her other series books.
