Desperation makes a girl do crazy things…

When twenty-one year old Raina O’Connor is kicked out of her room on short notice, she’s thrown into a frantic search for a new place to stay. As the situation becomes more urgent, her choices have dwindled to her least favorite option—ladies’ man, Kent Nicholson.

Kent Nicholson loves women, just not as a roommate…

When a gorgeous blonde with big hazel eyes answers Kent’s ad for a roommate, his red flags start flying. He’s looking for a wingman, not a chick who will put a damper on his game or drench his apartment in pink. It’s clear she’s in a bind, and something about her makes him break his own rules. But when he reluctantly accepts, it’s with four concrete conditions.

Be his wingman. Don’t get in his way with other girls. No bitchy attitudes. And most importantly, she can’t fall for him.

Pretty sure this was the world’s worst idea—ever…

Trust is something earned. Raina learned that the hard way when her father broke her heart as a child, making it easy to steer clear of relationships. But living with Kent somehow stirs emotions Raina has always forbidden herself to have. Plus, he’s everything she never wanted—untrustworthy, pigheaded…and gorgeous. Something tells her Kent isn’t free of his own secret scars…

Love can drag you down and spit you out, and be worth every second.

Gah! I absolutely LOVED this book. For a debut novel, this is pure perfection! The book has everything romance lovers crave- a sexy bad boy, a sweet and innocent heroine, a lot of sexual tension with a great build-up to the “fireworks”, a little bit of drama, and angst. I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the authors up and coming work because it is that good! Readers definitely don’t want to miss out on this sizzling romance read- it is swoon worthy and explosive!

The book is about a girl named Raina who, after getting kicked out of her old roommate’s house, goes searching for a new place to live. Lucky for her, she is able to find a new place to stay after she answers and ad from a known womanizer named Kent. At first both agree that Raina will be a roommate/wing woman to Kent so he can get as many girls as he wants. That’s part of their deal of course if she intends to stay with him. Oh yea, and she has to promise she won’t fall in love with him… So the two come together on this mutual agreement and vow to maintain a strictly platonic relationship. But after some drunken nights together the two become a little closer then they initially agreed to and fireworks begin to explode. However, their new found relationship doesn’t come without problems. Enter, ex-girlfriend Willow, Raina’s overprotective sister, and personal demons and you have your dramatic and toxic story of love, hate, and forgiveness.

Overall, this is a fantastic debut novel. I honestly couldn’t get enough of it so I read it from page 1 all the way to the end in one sitting. Readers will feel the toxicity of their relationship while rooting for a happy ending for the two. They will cheer Kent on when he gets into one of his drunken rages, and cry with Raina when she’s feeling hurt and pain. Readers will also find themselves falling in love with the secondary characters hoping that there will be a future book featuring them. So, if you haven’t picked up this book than YOU NEED TOO! It is such an awesome book and I honestly cannot say enough good things about it.
