Quirky, disarmingly honest Blake finds herself working at the Coffee Bean to get by when she's not tending bar. Coworker Gavin is having a similar struggle, barely making ends meet with his two jobs. The pair's mutual attraction is undeniable, and Blake is extremely open to learning more about her sexy colleague after hours. A unique opportunity arises when Blake's roommate moves out and Gavin gets the boot from his apartment. The two quickly become roommates and friends with benefits, but their casual setup evolves into something much more serious, leaving Blake terrified. Her candor and lack of a filter hide a very troubled past—but Gavin has secrets of his own. Both must work through their emotional barriers now that someone's shown up who is worth it. Author duo Hayley (The Proposition) have crafted a decidedly unconventional erotic heroine: Blake is odd, snarky, and fairly unflappable, with deep levels of vulnerability. An unfortunately persistent focus on her slim body size is unnecessary at best and at times distracting.
VERDICT Quick pacing and immediate chemistry are welcome departures for those eager to ditch the "chase" ever present in lengthier novels. Recommended for fans of the authors.
