A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…


*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*



Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.

She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party.

She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.

But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Poor Remi. Dumped two weeks before her wedding, she is in London, on what should have been her honeymoon and is looking to let loose. Then in walks Dax. The man that she spent three perfect days with before everything blew up in their faces. Remi was sure that Dax had forgotten about her, but it turns out he has been thinking of her just as much as she has been thinking about him. While they are in London they decide that they should be friends. Friends who eventually fall into bed again. (So freaking hot!)

Unfortunately, their timing is awful and they end up leaving London separately. Once they are back home they try to get back to the way things were before their trip, but that is an impossible task. They just can't stop thinking of the other person. Then things get even more complicated when Remi needs a place to live and Dax happens to have an empty room in the house he has just bought. And that is where the fun really begins.

Remi and Dax. Whew. These two. When they discuss their weekend together, you can tell that despite how it ended, it really did mean something to the both of them. While they are in London they learn more about that other person and realize they have a lot more in common than they originally thought. Dax is different when he is with Remi. He's sweet, kind, and thoughtful. But deep down he feels like he can't be the person that Remi needs him to be. And Remi knows that Dax is the exact opposite of the man she should be with (i.e. her ex-fiance), but she can't let him go. They just get each other. They need each other. They don't have to be someone they're not when they are together. They can just be. I just loved them as a couple. 

If you read Dirty English, you will want to pick up this one. Elizabeth and Declan make a few appearances in this book and we get to see how things are going for them. Plus we get some Blay brother bonding, which is always nice.

Book Trailer


Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.

I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.

One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.

But what had started as an innocent hug changed.

Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.

Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.

If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .

I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.

Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.

I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.

He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.

I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.

“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”

“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”

His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”
