Synopsis: Avery Grant has been through a rough patch, she gave up her career to move home to help take care of her ailing parents. She married a man that she did not love and he almost bankrupted her family’s farm. She divorced the con man and saved her farm. Now she is going to get what she wants and for over twenty years she has wanted Kade Martin.
Kade has been attracted to his sister’s best friend for twenty years. In the beginning Avery was too innocent, then she was married and he was busy working hard and playing harder.
The plan is simple, after tonight’s party for their godson’s engagement, Avery is going home with Kade. One night of sex with no strings, that’s the plan.
What I Thought:
I love stories where people finally get to have what they've wanted for so long. Avery has been through a lot. She's made sacrifices, hurt, suffered, and now that she's back on her feet she's decided to go after what she wants, and that's Kade, her best friend's brother.
Kade was interested in Avery too, although I had a feeling it was going to last longer than one night. The chemistry the two had was great and eventually so was the sex. I I thought this book was part of a series, but as it turns out, this is Melanie Jayne's debut work.
It's not very long and I read it quickly. I liked how organically the conflict was worked in. It also made sense to the story. I hope she writes more about these characters. I'd like to see how things work out for all of them in the future. Especially Kyle, who is on the same path as his Uncle Kade.
About the Author
I live on a grain farm in Central Indiana with my husband of 25 years and currently one Mastiff named Ginger. I started writing about 4 years ago, when my friend suggested that I try it. My first book is out 3-5-15. I get bored easily and change careers every 10 years or so. I've worked in retail management, in a courtroom for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, closed real estate loans and I am currently working behind the scenes on the overnight shift with the Security Department in a Casino. When I am not sleeping, working or writing, I love to read, watch sports and eat.
