Sometimes its impossible to know whether he was the one who got away or the one you’re definitely better off without…until he comes back into your life.

Lily Kember never dreamed a causal introduction to a friend’s friend would change her life, but three days after meeting Kai Jettison, she’s fallen deeply and irrevocably in love.

Kai falls just as hard, yet minutes after telling her as much he has no choice but to rip her heart to shreds, leaving whatever has blossomed between them lying in tatters on the ground.

It’s been five months since that fateful day. Five months of no contact. Now Kai is attending the same end of year bash as Lily, and bumping into him seems unavoidable. Lily’s choices are limited: either steel her emotions against Kai or risk losing her heart to him all over again.

Jess Dee definitely dazzles her entourage once again with an emotional love story so blazing HOT that you might be afraid of permanent third degree burns. Sizzling with lethal dialog as well as steamy sex, this truly sweet love story captures your heart and fuels your fantasies. Jess Dee continues to write refreshing romance that’s truly so electrifying that it leaves the reader absolutely breathless.

Who doesn’t want to be swept completely off of their feet? And what is not to love about a “dream-man” who has found his one true LOVE? Sounds like nothing can tear this “love at first sight” romance apart… or can it?

The lovely Lily Kember and the sexy Kai Jettison meet for the first time in Sydney Australia and fall instantly head over hells for each other. Their whirlwind attraction is hotter than the month of July and together they burn up the sheets. These two are obviously destined for each other but Kai Jettison has to break Lilly’s heart. He is promised to another. The hearts shatter!

It has turned into winter and five months later, Lily finds herself for the first time at a party that Kai will also be attending. Circumstances have changed, but will it be enough for these two to find each other again?

Only Jess Dee can write a short book with an opening scene so hot and combustible that you feel it all through your body. She opens with a scorching picture of chemistry so compatible that these two lovers sizzle the pages right off the book. You discover right away that Lilly and Kai are indeed in love and you find yourself immediately rooting for this couple. I believe when their hearts broke a little bit of mine did as well. Jess Dee is one of my favorite writers and this story is a perfect reason why I love her works. I was so smitten that I dashed through this tale quickly and found myself fantasizing about the romance and passion right along with Ms. Dee’s fictional creations. This story flowed effortlessly and I will definitely be keeping this in my favorite book list to take out and read again when I want a tale that turns up the heat.

I definitely recommend this story if you need a quick boast of lustful fantasy material. Need a firestorm in your life? Well this might be the tale you are searching for.
