About this ebook

Samantha never saw Enzo coming.

As the dust settles from her divorce, her life is full. She doesn’t have time for distractions. She’s too busy running her own company and checking off numerous items from her kids’ demanding schedule to have a life of her own.

Then he walks into her kitchen with his breathtaking green eyes and a mischievous grin. He’s there to surprise his father – her contractor, but his presence makes everything off kilter.

Enzo’s perfectly content with his adventurous life as an elite rescue pilot, until a harmless prank turns on him. Instead of surprising his father, he finds his world thrown off course by the beautiful woman with a sexy smile, wicked sass and the mouthwatering ability to keep him on his toes.

With his limited time on leave, is she worth the risk to his heart?

Didn’t Quite Work for Me I enjoy romances where the hero and heroine are a little older than typical, so I was looking forward to this romance between a divorced single mother of three children and a near-retirement Air Force pilot. Unfortunately, I was turned off nearly right away by the language. I don't like profanity at all in any book—except for characterization in rare circumstances, I don’t think it has a place in a well-written book—and this one started off with some. They kept popping up throughout the book, including an occasional F-bomb. I really wish that authors would always state in the book description if their book contains profanity because some of us just don't like to read books that have it, no matter if the plot or characters sound good or interesting. I was further turned off by the use of the phrase “sex on a stick” to describe the hero. Seriously, what does that even mean? As soon as I see it in a contemporary romance, it's an automatic rating reduction. I felt like this author went on and on about the attractiveness of the couple. I never like to see that in a story as I find it to be incredibly shallow in real life and believe that fiction—which has no visual element except for what we see in our heads—should rise above such superfluous superficiality. I felt like the characters were too cliched. Some things that both main characters thought were ones I've seen a million times in romance. The author didn't add any new sparkle to old chestnuts or redefine them in terms of her “unique” characters. The characters felt a little flat, actually. So, ultimately, I felt disappointed in this book. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

Samantha is divorced as she found out that he was having affairs and also she is a single mum to three children, she is having her kitchen completely modernised and her life is so hectic but she would not have it any other way as her children always come first as they are her life. Enzo is a pilot in the air force and home on leave so he decides to surprise his dad at work only he is the one that is surprised when he spots a sexy brunette were his dad is doing the renovations. Samantha and Enzo's chemistry and connection is off the charts hot and so strong but will it be enough for them to have a chance of having a happy ending. Omg i love this book so much and i can not wait to read the next book in this duet. This is the first book that i have read by Amanda Shelley but definitly not the last as it is so well written and a real page turner. I recommend you read this book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
