I haven’t read the previous books in this series so I had no idea what I was in for but WOW. I immediately loved Lenny and Bash. She’s smart, funny and her crazy family is so realistic the characters just jumped right off the page. Bash is such a good guy, the one who takes care of everyone and will do anything for his friends but his future isn’t his own so he’s destined to a life he doesn’t want, forced to walk away from the NFL draft and medical school and everything he’s ever wanted. Until now. He’s not willing to walk away from Lenny.
There’s a large supporting cast between her family and his friends but everything just flows. I felt like I knew the characters and this stood just fine on it’s own without any backstory from the previous books. There’s suspense with Bash’s mafia ties and Lenny’s family issues, but despite being excellent subplots, they never overshadow the romance. Lenny and Bash are perfect together and I loved every minute of their story.
I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.

Is it possible to meet the right person at the wrong time?
I had my friends. I had football. I had a future I was set on, until her.
Eleanor Kingston was the girl. The one I’d choose if I could, but all I had to give was one night. My life had been decided for me, my future predetermined. There’s no room left for football or love.
If you get only one life, how hard would you fight to live it on your own terms?
I had my family. My career was set. I was back to begin the life I was meant to lead when I met him. We promised each other no tomorrow, no names, only one night. But fate had other plans. Sebastian Beneventi may think he’s protecting me, but I’m no damsel in distress.
No more running, it’s time to fight for what I want for a change.
