He was a dare she’d never been able to resist…
Cat Thomas has never been the kind of girl to stick. A self-professed infatuation junky, she latches on the newest, hottest guy on the block, then finds a reason—real or imagined—to dump him. When she accepts a dare to rekindle her high school flame and jump in bed with her brother’s best friend, Shane Decker, she knows she’s in trouble. She can’t resist the man, even after all these years apart, and that just won’t do.
Shane has come back to town for a couple reasons. The biggest one? He’s tired of living away from those he loves, including Cat. But now she’s spooked and will do anything to drive a wedge between them, including trying to fix him up with other women through an online dating service.
What does he have to do to make her see that settling down doesn’t mean settling, and he’s ready to spend a lifetime proving it?
What’s it About? Basically Cat Thomas is allergic to commitment and always finds a reason to dump whatever guy she’s with before things get too real for her but then her brother’s best friend Shane comes home with the intention of staying and seeing if the spark that was between him and Cat years before can grow into something more meaningful and permanent. That’s when all sorts of delicious goodness and chaotic activities begin.
Did you like him? Yup.
Why? He’s protective without being controlling or overbearing and that was obvious to everyone except Cat. Shane had everything going for him except his taste in women which was lousy. Seriously, he would have been better off with a secondary character who I found a better, more mature match than Cat.
Did you like her? Not really.
Why? Could Cat be any more childish? She clearly needed a primer on the definitions and differences between protective and controlling because half the crap she accused Shane of being or doing was just stuff she pulled out of her rear. I just couldn’t see her point of view in her internal conflict. It wasn’t justified; it was silly and didn’t even begin to make up for how she treated Shane. I didn’t feel like Cat grew as a character, more like she finally had a “grown up” moment which I had a problem with because I want to read about two adult characters falling in love, not one adult and one woman-child. I tried to give Cat a fair shot but it was just one dumb thing after another and by the end I just couldn’t like her.
Click It or Skip It? If you don’t like heroines like Cat then skip it but if you can tolerate her then by all means click it. I would personally advise you to pick up the first book in the series for a better idea of this author’s talent.
