Synopsis

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn’t think it’s love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past. Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

~*~*~*~REVIEW~*~*~*~

four-stars

❤ ❤ ❤ Loved it!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Let me start by saying that it has such a fitting title. I loved the premise, how it’s setting up to be a very interesting story. I could relate to Tate since I was sorta treated like a doormat quite recently. Yes, she might be delusional and stupid. But, Tate really had no choice IMO. No one wanted to be the doormat if they could avoid it.

Miles, on the other hand, was a bit weird. His crush/feelings towards Rachel was out of this world.

My new favorite flavor is Rachel.
My new favorite thing is Rachel.
I want Rachel for my birthday.
I want Rachel for Christmas.
I want Rachel for graduation.
Rachel, Rachel, Rachel.
I’m gonna fall in love with you anyway, Rachel.

Is it just me that find that weird?

In regards to Tate and Miles, my favorite scene was the suturing in the bathroom. I find it to be very enticing and couldn’t wait to see what would come out of it. It’s just so beautifully done.

The side story was interesting too. Cap, the “elevator attendant”, reminiscing his love story. It was very short but his insight kicked a punch.

Love isn’t always pretty, Tate. Sometimes you spend all your time hoping it’ll eventually be something different. Something better. Then, before you know it, you’re back to square one, and you lost your heart somewhere along the way

Unlike Colleen’s other books, there were a lot more sex scenes in this. I did not find it to be overly done. Given the plot, it was necessary and highlighted the chemistry between Miles and Tate.

I’m not sure why but I did not at all enjoy the ending. It felt a bit too “clean” and slightly rushed. I guess I was preparing myself for a more heart wrenching ending given how broken Miles was.
