Zoe Dutton came to New York City with a Broadway dream that was crushed on arrival. Cole Delaney has a decision to make. Can he leave London behind for an editor-in-chief position in Manhattan, or does he want to go back to England where his life will remain as boring as ever?

When they meet in Times Square, sparks fly, and their instant attraction sets the tone for a night of indulgent lust. They share a deep connection, though when the morning comes, they must go their separate ways. But in a city like New York, how can one night ever be enough?

Zoe’s dream has always been to perform on the stage, ever since she was a little girl. She’s trying hard to get accepted for a new show before her current contract ends, but after another poor audition, her spirits are flagging. When she meets Cole in Times Square though, her day suddenly turns around. Cole is in New York from London, deciding if he wants a new editor position and the subsequent move to New York. They hit it off immediately and after a drink Zoe’s even more certain – Cole might be her champion, but he could also be exactly the kind of man she’s looking for keeps.

This is a smoking hot read. I thoroughly enjoyed the chemistry between Zoe and Cole and was not disappointed when they made it to the bedroom. Deliciously explicit, this steamy story left very little to the imagination. I particularly liked how Ms Fox didn’t have Cole and Zoe jump straight into bed. There was a clear meeting, then short time where they both tested the waters and learned a little about each other. Especially in such a short length story the clear effort to show the characters coming together emotionally and then physically was refreshing to me.

I enjoyed both Cole and Zoe’s characters and was thrilled to read them enjoy each other so much. Even though they sizzled in the bedroom, it was lovely to see them both discuss important things going on in their lives. Both of them are at a turning point and watching them talk and explore options – not merely ravish each other in the bedroom – really added to my emotional connection to them both and showed me how strong and lasting the connection they formed would be. I finished this book really wanting to know more about them both, and see how they progressed into the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will be eagerly looking for more of Ms Fox’s stories. I felt connected to Zoe and Cole and liked the author’s writing style. A sexy, emotional, romantic book I would happily recommend to other readers.
