Lena is about to discover pleasure in the things she can’t control. To get even with her roommate for dragging her to a sports bar on a Friday night, Lena begins flirting with the handsome stranger who sits at the bar next to her. Their anonymous conversation leads to a shared cab ride, but Lena’s conscience puts a damper on the evening—leaving the near-fling to become a memory. Until she finds him roaming the halls of the school where she teaches. Will she submit to his desires? Eric’s only reason for returning to his hometown is to care for his recently orphaned nephew. He knew the return would involve dredging up his past with family and friends, but he didn’t expect a lone girl to capture his interest and offer an escape within his new life. Will his binds be enough to keep her?

Review
 
There is pain.
There is fear.
Then there's hope.
 
For Lena, life is at a stand still. She's over her relationship, but isn't moving on. When her roommate makes her finally get out it leads to meeting the gorgeous Eric. She's not looking for anything, but he could be everything. If only she could break free from holds her back.
 
Eric sees in Lena just what he isn't looking for. Sometimes life gives us what we need when we least think we need it. He's the guardian to his nephew. Coming back to live in a town he didn't miss. This isn't the time to start a relationship, certainly not the type he's used to.
 
Together Lena and Eric find an attraction that can't be ignored. The timing may not be perfect, but then when is it. This isn't something that comes around often. It's a once in a lifetime type of feeling. Lena has scars, they go so deep she's never recovered. For some reason she trusts a stranger more than any she's ever known. It's not an easy feeling, but a necessary one. Can Eric heal Lena? Can they make things work even if the circumstances aren't perfect?
 
This book is full of the electrical connection that keeps pulling Lena and Eric to each other. When all seems lost fate will keep stepping in. The scenes between the two are full of emotion as Eric tries to discover all there is to the stranger he's pulled to. This book shows step for step how the two mesh and learn about each other. There's nothing that I felt lacked in this book. I loved the storyline and the pace of the book.
 
This is an easy read. It's not long and drawn out. It's a perfect length for a rainy day and a book that will leave you with a smile and no tension lines in your forehead. This isn't an angsty read, it's about self discovery and coming to terms. It's finding the person you can trust more than yourself to lead you in the right direction. I wish there was more to the end.
 
It's a great four star read. The first book I've read by this author, but I'm sure it won't be the last. I'll be keeping an eye out for her other books.
