Annalee wants a no-strings fling. Eric’s all about the strings.
Twelve years ago, when Eric Sorenson’s date dumped him right before the Senior Prom, his older sister’s best friend stepped in to save him from total humiliation. He never forgot Annalee or what she did for him that night…or the kiss they shared. He wants Annalee, and if he has his way, they’ll take up where they left off. And this time, he won’t let go.
After a messy divorce, Annalee’s not looking forward to her high school reunion. She’s shocked when Eric appears at her door ready to return the favor and play escort. Gone is the inexperienced boy with a severe stutter—he’s a striking, confident man. The memory of the kiss they shared rekindles an attraction that never died, and she’s been on her own for a year. Isn’t she entitled to kick loose and have a let’s-go-crazy night?
This is a very short read about two people on different pages that rekindle an attraction from when they were young. Annalee is recently divorced and not looking for romance. 12 years ago she saved her friend’s brother by accompanying him to prom when his date dumped him at the last minute. Now, he’s set to return the favor as Annalee goes to her high school reunion where she’s sure to run into her ex and his new wife. Eric is not the boy she remembered. He’s now a confident man who wants to pick up where they left off all those years ago after a scorching kiss. Will Annalee throw caution to the wind and have a fling with Eric? Will Eric get what he wants for good…which is Annalee?
This is a very short read. I enjoyed Eric quite a bit even if we didn’t get to delve too deeply into him. But for a short book it conveys a deep story about two people whose paths seem to converge when they need it the most. Eric has never forgotten Annalee, but she’s very closed off after the failure of her marriage. It’s understandable that she’s hard to reach but I kind of felt like reaching through my kindle and shaking her a few times. I mean, Eric is perfect!
Overall, for a short read I really liked this. The chemistry between the characters is better in this story than in some full length books I’ve read. It was easy through the writing style to visualize the story, and I really liked that. Great story. 4 stars.
