We met Liz in the last book. She doesn’t do the commitment thing. Simple, no strings attached is perfect. It’s not that relationships aren’t for her; it’s that she can’t do them. Period. Liz comes across as the party girl. Fuck ‘em and leave ‘em. But, buried deep beneath is such a heartbreaking sadness.
Cohen is a sexy, volunteer firefighter and Liz’s new neighbor. She would love to have a roll in the sheets with him, but he’s not that kind of man. Seriously! Cohen is still waiting for that special someone to give himself all to. Could Liz be the one?
Okay, I really liked this story. Though, I think they happened too soon I loved seeing Liz with Cohen. When they’re together you see this sweet, flirty side of her. Even with no actual sex going on, there is plenty of chemistry and heat and other fun things to do. ;) You know they’re both falling for each other…hard, but Liz has this whole façade she’s built up. Wait till you learn why she’s holding back. Your heart will break for her.
