Ashton Garrison walked away from a privileged life in order to hide from the one thing she's not willing to face. She knows she left behind a trail of pain, but in the long run, her betrayal will hurt less than the truth. She now has one goal: Live life to the fullest with no regrets and no attachments. She has high hopes that a move to new surroundings will provide the escape she desires, but what Ashton doesn't count on is how fate always seems to find a way to screw up any good plan. Sometimes, when love comes knocking, the pull is too strong not to answer. Suddenly, what she thought she wanted to escape from is what Ashton now wants more than anything.

Nathan Lockton has one mission: find his target and complete the task he was hired to do—no attachments and no emotion necessary. He's done it over and over again. What he thought was a typical lost-and-found job has turned into a life examining moment as Nathan is forced to deal with something he has always ignored--his feelings. Now faced with a decision, Nathan must choose to either follow his heart or complete the job.

Love can come when you least expect it. The question is: If the odds are stacked against you, how far are you willing to go for the one you love?


This was a very sweet and humorous book but it also had me an emotional wreck. 

This is the story of a girl, Ashton, who is trying to live life to the fullest but is also running away from a future she can't escape. She has moved away from her privileged life to a small town where no one knows her. Unfortunately her old life soon catches up with her when Nathan Lockton is sent to find her.  Nathan has done this many times before but this time is different. He can't help but be intrigued by this little spit-fire and soon he throws out all is rules just to get to know her. They arrange to become sex-buddies, no attachments, no getting close. But they soon realise that that's easier said than done. 
I loved the chemistry between Ashton and Nathan. It was so cute and fun and I loved the banter between them. There were defo some swoon-worthy moments and although the whole sex deal they had going on might seem a little crude, King dealt with it in a very heartwarming way. I want a Nathan. I want a picnic under the stars! The story is told in dual POV and I loved that. We got to her about both their pasts and what they were feeling at the time. It made the story more real.

I have to say I am kicking myself for not figuring out sooner what is was that Ashton was running from. It was staring me right in the face but when it was revealed I was still shocked! I think maybe I was in denial because I knew that if it was that it would upset to no end! And it did! I can't deal with that I just get a pain in my chest thinking about the ways it could end :( I was silently begging that it end well. I couldn't deal if it didn't. 

The only real complaint I have is I would have liked the ending to be a bit more dragged out. It was too short. I wanted more! :P A very heart-warming and heart-breaking book that will appeal to many contemporary fans.
