In this short yet deeply satisfying story, we first meet Sable Morrison as she leaving her job as a waitress. Unfortunately for her, she’s not having her best day. She is leaving her job for good, her car needs work and she is at a point where her life in desperate need of a change. An accident soon after she leaves work puts her on a collision course with Maxwell Benning.

Max is in many ways the opposite of Sable. He is successful, driving his new car and satisfied with his life, for the most part. He is tired of dating the “Barbie type woman” he seems to attract like bees to honey. He is hoping to find the woman that he can build a life with.

I found that Sable and Maxwell were believable in their reactions to the accident as well as their interactions with each other. Sable comes across as strong, witty and a bit skeptical at first over Max’s motives and sincerity. Max is a confident, level headed, take charge kind of guy who knows what he wants and is not afraid to go for it.

As for the steam factor of this book, it was there and then some. The sex in this book was not rushed into or just thrown in for the sake of sex. It came across as both passionate and containing an emotional connection, something that is hard to achieve in shorter books, and in this case was very well done.

The book was well-plotted and the scenes are well-paced. All in all, it was a good read and definitely has me wanting to read more of what Ms. Cory has to offer.
