A decade can be a long time in the life of a person. More than enough time to recover from the loss of someone you loved. Lucas Quinn sure hoped so. He'd loved Sirena –crazy loved her, in that my-soul-mate-forever-after-kind of love way and it failed. Big time failed. No worries, though, he moved on and out to California, restarted his life, started his company, and now its ten years later, and he's hugely successful, engaged to be married, and back in Austin. Finally, it's time to make amends, to put his past behind him, to right an old wrong, so that his future can finally be his own.

Sirena Wilson is the co- founder for Will Work For Food, a non-profit that supports the homeless population in and around Austin, TX. It's her life, and she's proud of it. It's safe and comfortable, complete with girl friends. So what if they are all over the age of seventy--little old ladies. It's where she belongs, on the shelf right along with them. She's has her career, her little old lady friends to take care of her and she them. It's enough right? Plus she's been there and done that with the love thing, travelled that path before and it left her alone and hurt and no way is she going back to that period in her life. What to do with Lucas though, back in town, bringing all those old-not-so-buried-hurts to the fore, along with her not so-buried-long-ago-love, making her question everything. Again.

Wow ! GREAT book over 650 pages, full of suspense and a lot of steamy scenes. Can't judge a book by it's cover- LOL

Sirena has worked hard and overcome some serious obstacles to open “Will Work For Food”, a non-profit organization that helps people down on their luck. When a venture capital company becomes interested in partnering with her organization, Sirena and her partner, DeMarcus, must meet with the company’s owners. Sirena is shocked when she finds out that the owner of Q Properties is none other than Lucas Quinn, her first and only love. Sirena has spent the last ten years resenting Lucas for the role he played in her father’s disappearance. The story gets deeper as the reader is whisked off to the past where Lucas and Sirena first met and their romance blossomed. This book is filled with deception, desperation and denial as both Lucas and Sirena try to maintain their independence and stay on course to accomplish their own dreams. "Will Work for Food" is a great story of two people with ambitions for their future. The chemistry between Lucas and Sirena is palpable even when they are not getting along. I enjoyed their dynamic and how both characters were able to maintain their identity as a couple. Author Ruthie Robinson did a terrific job of setting up the story and then back flashing the reader. While we are learning about Sirena and Lucas’ past we are still left wondering what the present holds for them, which works great for getting the reader to keep reading long into the wee hours of the night. As a warning to readers, there is quite a bit of sex, but it is is all done in a very tactful way. Most of it plays into the plot or character growth, so it doesn’t all feel gratuitous. There are a few typos and grammar errors but nothing that would distract the average reader. [Note: I read an early version of this book, so it's possible that the author cleaned up the grammar]  (This book was provided to Compulsion Reads for review by the author.)

I really enjoyed this book, all 600 plus pages a great read. This book has sex but it's not sex from the first page to the last. This book has humor, love, betrayal and sex which makes for a great read. This is the second book that I've read from this author; If you liked this book then you will also like her book Reyes Gold.
