Oh, this book can’t help but suck you in right from the beginning. It starts with Marcus getting yelled at by his sister Riley because he, once again, slept with one of her friends and ruined their relationship. He can’t help it women throw themselves at him, I mean, who wouldn’t want to be with a tatted up, hot underwear model? Seriously, who? Anyway, back to the story. Marcus is happy with is man-whore ways and has no plans to change them anytime soon. That is until he sees Riley’s old friend Tessa.
After getting out of an abusive relationship with her ex, Tessa has landed her first job at a talent agency. After dropping her son off at daycare she heads into work and runs into none other than sexy Marcus. They pick up their friendship like they were never apart and their feelings for each other start to grow. Riley is adamant that Marcus stay away from Tessa as she doesn’t think he is good enough for her and she doesn’t want to lose her friend. However, even after all the warnings, they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Everything is going good, complaining from Riley aside, until Marcus’ past comes back to slap them in the face. When confronted with his past, Tessa feels like a fool and runs. Marcus is heartbroken and will do whatever it takes to get her back. With a little help from none other than Tessa’s mother, they confront their feelings and get back together. It was so sweet and a bit hilarious, to listen to Tessa’s mom talking with Marcus. I mean, who would feel comfortable talking to someone else’s mom about their sexual past? I can’t think of anyone!
When they get back together they ask Riley to babysit and Marcus surprises Tessa with a new house. He wants to make their relationship permanent and the first step is to leave the past behind and start a new future together. Tessa doesn’t think she can get any happier. However, her world is about to come crashing down in the form of her ex. When she realizes she has several missed calls from Riley, they hurry home to find a nightmare waiting on them.

Seriously, this is one of the best books I have read in a while and I highly recommend it. This book is all about overcoming ones past and realizing you deserve happiness. Marcus and Tessa both have struggled and fought with their emotions, but came through the other side stronger people. Marcus is such a wonderful man and any girl would be lucky to call him hers. Tessa is a strong woman who just needed to realize that her past does not define her and it is ok to get her HEA. Like I said, I really couldn’t be happier with this book. It was a great read and you should make sure to go out and get your copy today!!!
“Don’t let your past hold you away from me. Don’t let what you’re afraid of hinder you from moving on. I can be here for you as a friend, as more. You just have to let me be…don’t worry about Riley, or Zack, or what anyone else says or does. Worry about me and you and what we can be together. I won’t hurt you, Tessa, but you have to trust me. You have to let me in.” ~ Marcus
“When you walked back into my life, there was something missing, but I just didn’t know it. I never could have imagined it was you, but—it’s you, baby. You make me whole again and with you, I know that everything will be okay.” ~ Tessa
