What else can a virgin do when she’s ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.
Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.
Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them.
Slade and Mackenzie are both hurt souls. Both were betrayed by people who were supposed to care about them. A chance meeting on a airplane brought these two together. It seemed like maybe they were meant for each other. Ah but it's never quite that easy. Tragedy strikes and pulls them apart but fate is a fickle thing. I enjoyed watching these two figure out who they are supposed to be. First Mackenzie fights for Slade and when he finally gets his act together he fights for Mackenzie too. I read some early reviews on this book before i started it and was worried i wouldn't like it. I'm glad i got past all that and totally enjoyed the book. Slade doesn't come across to well in the beginning. He's hurting and he lashes out at the one person who cares about him. Even though Mackenzie is hurt she finds the strength to see past all that and decides she's not going to give up. This is a first time for this author for me and I'm glad i took the chance .
