Official Blurb:

Zeph The year’s been a successful failure and after a friend breaks our plans, I’m ready to ride into the next one without much fanfare.
When a woman with a familiar last name applies to stay at my rental, I’m ready to hit the cancel button just to be alone, but something about her personal note hits a high note with me.
She’s “getting away from it all” and I wonder what it all means.
I find out who she really is. That last name wasn’t a coincidence.
Katy’s sweet and sincere, and her curves are rocking my New Year’s Eve.
Her brother’s not going to be happy about what’s happening and he steps between Katy and me without even knowing it.
It’s time to stop worrying about what others feel and want—except for when it comes to Katy.
I’m ready to feel more than I ever have and I’ll want her forever.
My life’s meh. Completely blah. And utterly sigh-worthy.
So I decide to get away from the monotony and book a rental out of town for the New Year’s.
Jeph’s unusual names sets off flags in my head, but he’s too charming and handsome not to at least have a little flirty fun.
But when my brother throws me a curve telling me his best friend’s secret, I’m broken. I thought Jeph was honest with me.
Life goes from meh-blah-sigh to everything I’ve ever wanted to crashing at my feet, all in one fateful sparkling night.
I wanted special, but maybe special doesn’t exist.
And neither does forever.

My Thoughts:

The blurb says Katy’s life was ‘meh’, well I’m afraid this entire book was a bit ‘meh’ too.
I read it a few days ago and am only just getting around to writing the review, but it had hardly any impact on me that I can barely remember reading it. Not a lot happens, and I think the blurb is certainly more interesting than the book itself. I was expecting more from the characters and the storyline. I felt like the snippets into their lives were added as afterthoughts and were there for the shock factor of what had happened to them in the past. It just didn’t flow.
I know the book was only 56 pages long and you can’t expect too much from these short stories (and I read a lot of these quick, fast and steamy books, so that wasn’t the problem), but everything just felt too rushed. It was nice that they spent time getting to know one another in the hot tub, and this eliminated a little of the rush factor. However, the next day was just over the top and just didn’t feel very realistic at all.
So, I’m sorry, but this wasn’t one of the best of these types of book that I’ve read. The story didn’t feel very well developed, and the characters just didn’t draw me in with there romance enough for me to care about them.
