At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her back.
But trust me on this count – she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. I’m prepared to fight for her…and to fight hard. I might have let her slip through my fingers the last time, but no way will that happen twice.
He's the one who got away…
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that, stripping at my job, showing off his rock hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky, arrogant jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not a jerk . . .? He's the one I've tried like hell to forget but just can't. Maybe I’m cursed to remember him. My money is on him being the same guy he always was, but what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he’s a new man? I won't fall for him again.
But how do you resist the hot one…

 Maria’s Review

➦Ah… how many of us have made some shitty decisions in our 20s?

➦Yeah, yeah… we’ve all done it. And Tyler here is no exception. He dumps his college sweetheart right at the end of his senior year because he is afraid he can’t juggle both a relationship and a law career. But you know what, even Thor isn’t perfect.

➦Bah, who am I kiddin’?

➦I digress. So what happens when Tyler runs into Delaney many years later and realizes that he made a huge mistake? What’s the best way to get her back?

➦That’s right. You strip. You go to her place of business and strip until she agrees to go on a date with you. And then, once you get her to agree, you follow all the steps. Determination, people!

➦This second chance romance was a rather enjoyable read for me. But, somehow, it didn’t quite hit the spot. I was hoping for some epic chasing and groveling and, even though the story has both, I needed more.

➦May be I would have been a happier camper if this novel went more in the romantic comedy direction with more ott humor. Because who strips in front of people? OR I would have been okay with more angst. The book was light but was also dragging. I can’t say for sure why, but I just wasn’t completely invested in this story. But you read it and be the judge. 🙂
