As Stiletto magazine’s authority on all things breakup-and-heartache, Emma Sinclair writes from personal experience. Five years ago, Emma was Charlotte, North Carolina’s darling debutante and a blushing bride-to-be. Now she’s the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene. Emma left her sultry Southern drawl behind, but not even her closest friends know that with it she left her heart. Now Emma’s latest article forces her to face her demons—namely, the devilishly sexy guy who ditched her at the altar.
After giving up everything for a pro-soccer career, Alex Cassidy watches his dreams crumble as a knee injury sidelines him for good. Now he’s hanging up his cleats and giving journalism a shot. It’s just a coincidence that he happens to pick a job in the same field, and the same city, as his former fiancée . . . right? But when Emma moves in next door, it’s no accident. It’s research. And Alex can’t help wondering what might have been. Unlike the innocent girl he remembers, this Emma is chic, sophisticated, and assertive—and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, Alex has never wanted her more.

So glad I discovered this author recently. I got an arc of this book and decided why not? The cover is gorgeous. I am a sucker for the covers. If a cover isn’t pretty, chances are I won’t read it. I know that sounds awful but it’s just something I’ve always done.
Alex and Emma are former flames. They were engaged to be married 5 years ago. Now,you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened to make them break up but I enjoyed the mystery of it. Now they’re in the same city working together and sparks definitely fly. This story is sweet, hot and made me swoon. I loved Alex! Definitely read this one when it comes out if you’re a fan of contemporary romance. Lauren’s style reminded me a bit of Jill Shalvis, who everyone knows is my favorite.
