This was my first book from this author and I'm so glad I finally dived into one of her books!! What a sweet and fun read and Pax and Demi's relationship is all kinds of sexy and sweet. I loved them endlessly and I loved that Carrie Aarons gives us a look into their past so we see how and why their connection in the present is the way it is. You definitly want to throat punch younger Pax for how he treated Demi, and you definitly don't want to love his present self as much as you do. But boy, does the man ever redeem himself. You can understand his need to put his future and career ahead of all his relationship choices, and the things that happen in his life allow him to make the choices he might not have had his life not taken that path. He knows this, and does everything he can to win back the girl who he mistreated and let slip through his fingers. (talk about charming the pants off of her)
Demi, oh Demi. I love her, the job that she does, and how she still carefully dances around their relationship at first to protect her heart. I'm glad she didn't fall head first right away into Pax's sexy arms. She made him work for it a bit. Her past has also shaped her and encouraged her to make the choices she has, including why she works in the field she does (and she's a CEO, hands up for the strong independent woman!) And while I loved her as a person, I loved her and Pax together. They were sweet, and funny and sexy! And I really liked that the sexy time wasn't overwhelming or in every chapter of the book. it was spread out perfectly and made me enjoy the book that much more.
Over all, I really really enjoyed this book so much. it was sweet, swoony, heart wrenchingly sad, and had that little touch of angst that we all know and love in a romance book. I am so glad I've finally read a book by this author and am now making sure to read more of her books and add them to my TBR! A solid 4.5 stars for me!
