Summary (cr: goodreads)

Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare…

Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well—until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he’s determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.

But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won’t be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her… down to the very soul.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

I thought this was your typical rich boy with a dark background meets this naive girl who refuses to acknowledge the sexual tension between them then does eventually (yep, I did read a lot of this kind of plot)..but it was more than that. The male protagonist Braden Carmichael may be pushy and bossy but in equality, Joss Butler also has problems with commitment. It may be because of what happened to her family, her childhood best friend and her PTSD tendencies. What touched me the most (made me teary-eyed) is Ellie and Joss' scene.

Till the next read...
