Nick O'Hara is a veritable womanizer. The only qualifications that he looks for in a romantic connection is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that's the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that's enough for him.
Until Scotty James.
Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She's broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and homelessness. She has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she.
When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn't want to be with him. At first she's a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him.
Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust?
There were things off about this book but there were many points that I did like in the book, I thought the overall story line was interesting and fun to read. I loved that they didn't instantly jump into things, it went slowly which is understandable due to her past. I loved that there was the dual point of view to make things interesting and seeing whats going on with both point of views. I loved that there was enough drama, romance, and steam to keep things interesting.
Overall I did enjoy the book and look forward to seeing what happens next.
