About the Author
Darcy Burke is the USA Today bestselling author of hot, action-packed historical and sexy, emotional, contemporary romance. Darcy wrote her first book at age eleven, a happily-ever-after about a swan addicted to magic and the female swan that loved him, with exceedingly poor illustrations.
A native Oregonian, Darcy lives on the edge of wine country with her guitar-strumming husband, their two hilarious kids who seem to have inherited the writing gene, and three Bengal cats. In her "spare" time, Darcy is a serial volunteer enrolled in a twelve-step program where one learns to say "no," but she keeps having to start over. She's also a fair-weather runner, and her happy places are Disneyland and Labor Day weekend at the Gorge.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

This Story was so fast paced that it wasn't really romantic on the way a Story should be.
Evan Archer & Alaina Pierce's time together was really short & in the span of a week they were having sex almost every time they were together which bothered me because I don't think someone who has Asperger’s syndrome & a mild form of Sensory Disorder to adapt to not only be in a Relationship but be around people especially if they become overwhelmed. People who have Asperger’s syndrome tend to stay away from crowds even Family. Such as being around more than 5 people who are talking in different scenarios can be overwhelming & send that person into an Anxiety Attack which is different from an Anxiety Attack.
I really wanted to Love this Book, albeit it just didn't cut it for me.
Evan does not like noise or crowds, but he is part of a big family and can tolerate them most of the time but even his big family can overwhelm him some times. Now, he bumps into an A-list movie star who is hiding out in their apartment above their garage. He is very attracted to her and has a hard time fighting it. Alaina feels the same way. At first she does not know about his condition but once she learns of it she understands why he has acted the way he has some times. She loves that he is so open and honest, he is the breath of fresh air she has been looking for. They hit it off and things get hot and heavy. He is till himself but he is becoming more and more comfortable around her like he is with his family and no one else and that is something that is amazing to him.
I don't want to get into too much because I don't want to give a lot away, but I will say they go through their trails and she finds out he is not looking for what she is looking for and with a broken condom incident that sends Evan spiraling and lashing out, she leaves to go back home.
Does Evan get over his fear of a relationship and go after Alaina?
Does Alaina get pregnant and if so does she still have Evan in her life?
I can't wait for you to read this book and to tell me what you think of it. If you don't fall in love with Evan then there is no way in this world that you have a heart.
Thanks for reading my review. Please leave a comment on what you though of the book, I wold love to hear from you.
Until Next Time: Happy Reading.
Movie star Alaina Pierce is looking for a way out of Hollywood as a media circus is starting up around her. Her production partner Sean suggests his in-laws place in Ribbon Ridge, Oregon, so she packs up and heads out.
Evan Archer has just moved back home to live with his parents and is the first to run into Alaina at the apartment over his parents garage when he goes to help he hears the piercing alarm of the smoke detector going off and goes to help her get it to turn off.
Evan is a breath of fresh air to Alaina after living in fake Hollywood for so many years. He doesn't seem to have a filter, and everything that comes out of his mouth is honest. A what you see is what you get kind of guy. After a few interactions with him and his family, she's told that he has Aspergers.
They spend as much time enjoying each others company as they can while she's there, and neither is looking forward to her going home to California. When they lead such different lives and want different things for their futures, can there be anything beyond the here and now for them?
