***received this book for exchange for my honest review***

Aubrey has finished her education and is ready to find a job and move forward in her life. She loves romance novels, and aspires to write one, but feels unqualified because aside from one lousy boyfriend/sexual experience she only has theoretical knowledge of the subject. She agrees to go to a speed dating event hosted by her best friend’s marketing firm and although the event is a disaster, she meets Alex, the owner of the club hosting the event, and is quickly attracted to him. Aubrey hears from others that Alex is a player, and she doesn’t want to get hurt but feels that she might gain some good romance experience for her book by spending time with him.

Their relationship quickly turns serious for both of them and they find themselves in love and very happy. However, a misunderstanding followed quickly by a personal tragedy take things in a direction neither anticipated and caused damage to the relationship that may be beyond repair.

There were a couple things that kept me from fully connecting to these characters and the story. I thought the dialogue between Aubrey and Alex was a little hyperbolic and flowery at times. It was good to see their relationship giving them both what they needed, but it felt like in getting close to one another it caused them to speak in declarations at all times. I really enjoyed Aubrey’s friends, and liked the support that they offered to her and each other. There is a bit of mystery involved at towards the end of this book, and I suspected what was about to happen, but didn’t really want my suspicions to be true. Overall, I did enjoy this story and the characters and would like to see what happens in the next installment.
