When Helen Brody needed her office repaired, she never expected that the contractor would be Jamie Evans, the man with whom she shared an unforgettable night a year earlier. Jamie hasn’t forgotten Helen, either, and now that he’s found her, he’s determined not to let her get away again.
Helen can’t get involved with Jamie, because he wants something she can’t give him, but she can’t deny the explosive, out of control attraction between them. As they try to work through their feelings, they find that the hit and run driver who destroyed Helen’s office has more plans for her. Will they have only a handful of nights together, or will they have the chance to build something lasting?
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Helen is a lawyer whose life is basically her job. She works long hours and gives it everything she has. But the one time she gave in and had herself one night of fun she never expected that man to show up on her doorstep one year later, or that the wild attraction would still be there in full force.
Jamie isn’t book boyfriend material, he’s book husband material. He’s charming, sweet, and knows exactly how to take care of everything Helen needs before she even knows she needs it. I like how he knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to do whatever it takes to get it.
“I thought about it, okay? I wanted to call you. But I didn’t want to be…presumptuous.”
“Presumptuous? I thought we were past that.”
“We spend one night together a year ago,” she said quietly. “I didn’t see you again until yesterday. So, yeah, I’m not sure what we are.”
“We’re dating. Remember? We went on a date last night.”
She swiped her hand down the material covering her thigh. “That wasn’t a date. That was a business meeting.”
“Uh uh. No. You wouldn’t let me pay. We agreed it was a date.”
Love Me has a little action/suspense, a lot of please love me because I’m never giving up, and it’s tied together with bouts of humor. It was a fast and captivating read. And now that I’ve met Helen’s family, and instantly fell in love with all of them, I cannot wait to read all of their stories.
My Favorite Moment: Nothing like being a little medicated to clear the way for your heart to speak. Confessions come at the most surprising times.
