Aja didn’t expect to meet one of the town’s hottest bachelors, Walker, in the frozen food section of the grocery store while having a particularly intense panic attack. But she did, and he handled her like a pro. Aja thinks she has escaped the embarrassment—until Walker shows up at her weekly bingo game with his grandmother, who he’s helping while she’s in double arm casts. It doesn’t take long for them to form a friendship that quickly turns sexual. Brought together by bingo, they make a sex pact, vowing that as each one wins a game, the reward will be sex. However, the rules get broken, and as true feelings develop, the two learn more about each other than they bargained for. Full of graphic sex scenes, a gentle take on mental health, and a dark past that slowly gets dealt with, Slaughter’s (To Be Alone with You) latest expertly navigates the emotional ups and downs between Aja and Walker.
VERDICT An excellent read full of heart, sass, and steam that’s perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey and Jasmine Guillory.
