After finding her fiancé in bed with another woman, Candace, a twenty-something, up-and-coming romance novelist with a deadline, takes off for a friend’s vacation home in Tahoe. The good news? She’ll share the place with fellow house guest, Logan, her best friend Eric’s latest lover. Except…Logan, the nearly-irresistible-to-women, burned out photographer, isn’t Eric’s lover. Not now, not ever. He’s hiding out licking personal wounds, and before he’s allowed anywhere near Candace, he’s sworn off her. No problem. Except…

There’s something about Candace. She’s not simply beautiful and enticingly off-limits. It’s in the way she doesn’t flirt with him. In the way she treats him like he isn’t a shallow pleasure-seeker. In the way, somehow, she brings peace to his world-weary soul.

Too bad she thinks he’s gay. But even if he can clear that hurdle, can he really entrust Candace’s heart to his own haphazard keeping?

It is usually a book’s blurb that attracts me to it. In this case, it was how the main characters were described. Candace is an author, which intrigued me. As for Logan, the blurb mentions that he is a photographer. I would like to be a photographer, so that grabbed my attention as well.

Logan’s chivalrous side, and love, began to show when Candace started getting hate mail. He was such a wonderful man, and that type of behavior always adds to the my rating. The story had some neat twists to their slowly coming together.  I completely enjoyed their interactions. This story, through the talent of author Kimberly Keyes, made me want to take more leaps of faith.

The writing, the plot, the characters — all of that goodness came together to make a book I completely enjoyed.
