Ashton Garrison walked away from her current life to escape the one thing she’s unwilling to face. She knows her decision may be selfish, but in the end, leaving will be far less painful for everyone. Now she has one goal: live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. What Ashton doesn’t count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan.
Nathan Lockton specializes in locating a mark. He’s done it over and over again—no attachments and no emotion necessary. What he thought was a routine lost-and-found job has forced Nathan to deal with something he has always ignored—his feelings. He’s never fallen for a target, yet he’s never met anyone like Ashton. Now deep in a dilemma, Nathan must decide to follow his heart, or complete the job he was hired to do.
Love can come when you least expect it. The question is: If the odds are stacked against you, how far are you willing to go for the one you love?
I was lucky enough to win this book in the goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. And I am glad I won this book because I loved every minute of it!
The story is about a woman that leaves her home and makes a new life in small town Woodfalls. One night in the bar she meets a man but before it went anywhere she passed out from one too many drinks. So next day at work Ashton meets the mysterious man again when he walks into the shop and finds out that he has decided to stay in the area a bit longer. What neither of them know is that there are secrets about each other and as they get closer the secrets start to come out.
I really enjoyed this book. It took me one day to read it and I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the characters. With Ashton you can see she wants to do random things like jump off a bridge or enjoy a one night stand with a random stranger that does not live in the small town where she is currently residing. Nathan is in Woodfalls for work, which happens to be finding Ashton. What he does not realize is that he is falling in love with her and starts to put off turning her in. I also like the other characters in the book. You can tell how much they care for Ashton even though she is still technically new to the area. Fran is an older woman who owns the shop Ashton works at and the only person that knows Ashton’s real story. Tressa and Brittni are her two best friends and even though Ashton has just joined their group it almost feels like they grew up with each other.
I recommend you pick up this book and give it a chance. You will not regret it. So go out to a bookstore, the library, or even amazon and get this book. I hope you will read it and enjoy it as much as I have.
