Rose, a detective with the NYPD, tries to battle her frustration from a family visit in New Orleans the only way she knows how: With a one-night-stand. She doesn’t find out until later that the other woman is New York-based designer Payton Smith. They see each other again and the attraction flares once more, but things soon get complicated: Rose isn’t out in her workplace and doesn’t want to be. Payton is out and proud, but she carries issues with her she evades with the help of beautiful designs, and sometimes, a bottle. They both have a long way to go. Can they make it together?
This was a quick read for me. It was kinda predictable, but it was enjoyable at the same time. Rose and Payton started out as a one-night stand, but it ended up becoming something much more.
One thing that was different about this book, and did catch me off guard (a good caught off guard!) was how Rose’s family was. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that her family shocked me because it made this book completely different from most romances.
The relationship between Rose and Payton was one that did have it’s ups and downs, and they had to learn how to work through them together.
Overall – I would say that if your looking for a good quick read that will leave you happy, then be sure to check this book out.
