Being absent from the dating scene means she doesn’t have to deal with the major trust issues she has with men that stem from a controlling and aggressive ex-boyfriend and an absentee father. She’s happy being alone, sharing her life with her friends and family.
When Jeni starts a typical day in the big city of Mornington Vale, California, it turns from bad to worse when she’s involved in a chain collision on her way to work.
Her world changes forever that day because she meets Aiden O’Connell, the billionaire son of Alistair O’Connell, who owns Mornington Vale’s largest financial corporation.

My Rating (both books):
Review (both books)
*I chose to review both of these books together so I will try to be as general as possible so as not to give spoilers.*
I can NOT say enough good things about this series. While reading these 2 books, I could be found doing one of the following: literally sitting on the edge of my seat, laughing, all choked up at something romantic, or fanning myself over some seriously steamy moments. Oh and don’t forget the times I was pissed at one of the few characters that had me glaring at my tablet. In short, my emotions were all over the place!
Aiden and Jeni….*sighs* Seriously great couple. Don’t get me wrong, its not all daisies and sunshine but that just makes for a better story and a stronger relationship. Aiden is seriously sex walking. He’s a successful business man, kind, sweet, loving, and likes to spoil Jeni….and did I mention sexy as hell? Jeni has some serious baggage from her previous relationship but its obvious that she’s trying to overcome that. Despite how she frustrates me from time to time, I do like her. All of their friends and family are great (with the exception of Alastair of course). All of the characters felt like real people and I felt every single emotion right along with them.
So far this is turning out to be one of my favorite series and I’ve already found myself thinking about it throughout my day while doing other things. To me, that is the sign of an Author that has done their job well. I am VERY eager to read the final book All of Me? so I can get the conclusion to this seriously fantastic (if not emotionally draining) series. Wonder stories and a solid 5 out of 5 books on both stories from me!
