relaxing in a farmhouse in the beautiful french countryside, at least she is until an unexpected guest turns up.She finds herself confronted with her business partners brother, who just happens to co own the place she is staying in.I enjoyed the playfulness between the two characters The way they interacted with ease, were able to laugh and have fun with each other Sometimes people just connect naturally in a way that is inexplicable.Connor started off regarding Josie as an irritating disruption to his holiday, but now he finds himself attracted to the spunky distraction Unfortunately he has no plans for any relationship regardless of whether it be short or long term Who wants to be nothingthan a week long fling with no strings attached, no questions and all the benefits Josie certainly doesn t find his attitude towards potential love interests and family members very inviting.Connor teaches Josie to let go, to understand that the world will still go on as usual even if she doesn t work like a madwoman 24 7.It is snug little story with a fleeting moment in time and a string of coincidences changing the paths of two people.I received a copy of this book courtesy of Harlequin UK

and the journey to finally learning to stand up and fight I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book It was so unbelievably perfect in every way it felt as if I was reading a best seller before it has even come close to the shelves The author s characters were stunning and extremely realistic they not only creep into my heart but deep into my soul I loved how the author showed both the characters as feisty yet, also cautious of actually taking steps towards achieving goals they do not even really realize they need It showed them both as I recon a lot of us are in real life, we don t realize what is is that we need to do until it hits us with such a force it sends us down a spiraling hill that it seems impossible we will be able to get back up For some it is too late but for others it is

happen at all Someone comes knocking or in the case of Connor and Josie, ends up sleeping in your bed, pay attention before it s too late, life is trying to send you a message.I HIGHLY recommend this
