About this ebook

A new, sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland.

The first time I met Hudson Rothschild was at a wedding. I’d received an unexpected invitation to one of the swankiest venues in the city.

Hudson was a groomsman and quite possibly the most gorgeous man I’d ever laid eyes on. He asked me to dance, and our chemistry was off the charts.

I knew it wasn’t a good idea to get involved with him, considering the wedding I was at. But our connection was intense, and I was having a great time.

Though the fun came to a screeching halt when Hudson figured out I wasn’t who I’d said I was. You see, that unexpected invitation I received? Well, it hadn’t actually been addressed to me—it was sent to my ex-roommate who’d bounced a check for two months’ rent and moved out in the middle of the night. I figured she owed me an expensive night out, but I guess, technically, I was crashing the wedding.

Once caught, I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. As I bolted for the door, I might’ve plucked a few bottles of expensive champagne off the tables I passed, all while the gorgeous, angry groomsman was hot on my tail.

Outside, I jumped into a taxi. My heart ricocheted against my ribs as we drove down the block—but at least I’d escaped unscathed.

Or so I thought.

Until I realized I’d left my cell phone behind at the table.

Take one guess who found it?

This is the crazy story of how Hudson Rothschild and I met. But trust me, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.

This book is officially one of my Favourites I laughed so many times while reading this. I love how as you're reading you are able to put the puzzles together as to where it's going before the characters....wasn't too obvious but well put. It was truly a beautiful love story. I would've liked to meet the shoe stealer thou.... Why does she steal everything??!! 😂😂

All I can say is WOW. Vi Keeland is amazing. Her books are phenomenal. She gives her readers exactly what they are looking for. Hudson is attracted to Stella from the moment he meets her at his sister’s wedding. What makes her different than the rest is she is strong, determined, hard working and so much more. She doesn’t want to get involved with him because of their business arrangement. But he is relentless. He will not give up and he knows that she feels the same way. He decides to let her come to him so to speak. He wants her to realize they should be together. He doesn’t want to push her and then later regret it. Their chemistry is off the charts. But it is not only a physical one. They actually talk. They enjoy each others company. She even loves his little girl Charlie. The three of them are a family. I am a strong believer in fate. Everything happens for a reason. From her diaries to the wedding. They were bound to be together.

Okay, I really loved this story!! It has everything I love about reading a romance story. It has a most unique heroine and a devastatingly handsome, alpha Hero with a daughter! Swoon right there! I really loved Stella and her quirky personality. She really was a breath of fresh air. Hudson was the typical Alpha hunk businessman, but damn I loved his interactions with Charlie, his daughter, who by the way, really stole my heart! This story has the perfect combination of funny and serious, passion and steam. I loved watching Stella try to fight her attraction for Hudson, only for it to be oh so combustible when she finally gives in to her desires. The wit and banter between the two was just as important as any of the steamy stuff, and I love how Vi showed her readers what perfect soulmates these two characters are. Vi has quickly become one of my favorite authors when it comes to blowing readers away with the twists she weaves into her stories! I always brace myself for what is coming and this time was no different. I wanted to climb into the book and wrap my arms around these two special people, that's how invested I was in their lives. I absolutely loved little Charlie AND Stella's best friend Fisher. Every woman needs a Fisher as their sidekick!
