At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for star athletes. No one at school knows that she’d had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson—except one person…
Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.
Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along.
Rachel is back from college for the summer to help her mom out with her store but hasn't been back to town for an extended time in three years since she had an accident that left her in a hospital bed for weeks with damage to her head. Kai, Rachel's best friends’ brother, is also back in town after having lived in Amsterdam for the past three years. He is the all-around bad boy and is constantly having problems but he doesn't really care. Back for the summer to work at his family's casino and potentially figure out his life, him and Rachel reconnect after all the time apart.
Rachel and Kai are best friends with some serious sexual tension going on but they fight it because they don't feel like it is the right thing to do. All in all it was a quick read and I enjoyed reading it. I didn't feel very connected to the characters though and then ending seemed kind of abrupt. I would recommend it if you are looking for something quick and entertaining but not if you are looking for something to really suck you in.
