OrangeReviewStarDaisy Sinclair is the divorcee maid of honor at her sister's wedding, and playboy Lincoln Mathis is the best man. When the two meet, they recognize a fellow soul holding secrets. Both are used to acting a part, but with each other, there's nowhere to hide. When they ditch the wedding and a drunken night ensues, readers may expect a hookup or a night of regrets. Instead, a real friendship blossoms. As time passes, their relationship grows, with the sexual tension between them escalating as well. Still, their pasts have a hold on them, and they are unable to move forward until they can heal themselves and each other.
VERDICT Fans of Layne's series (Irresistibly Yours; I Wish You Were Mine) who have been anxious for Lincoln's story won't be disappointed, while newcomers will be motivated to dive into the author's backlist and read the stories of this group of friends. Lincoln and Daisy's tale is expertly crafted, full of wit and heart. Layne is equally adept at writing heartbreaking portrayals of grief and scenes of steamy passion that will get hearts racing. Exemplary contemporary romance.
