This is a short adult book (+18) with very explicitly (hetero)sexual content. It's written from the perspective of two people, Jennifer and Mike. It's Jennifer's birthday, and Mike has made plans to ensure that it'll be one that she will remember for a long time.

I wanted a family with Cash. We had dreams - building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket fence. I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we shared. The past 10 years were erased, but with time, they’re supposed to come back. But what if this isn’t your typical case of amnesia? What if I’m not supposed to remember? What if I was meant to forget? Maybe I don’t want my old life back. Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth. Losing my memory wasn’t tragic. Losing my memory was fate.

Taking nothing away from Sarah Puckett, who did an excellent job...I really wish this was at least dual narration. 3 would've been perfect...but at least dual.

I liked the unique story and the twists and turns. Book keeps you guessing almost all the way through. That said, I felt the ending was rather anti-climactic...even though mostly the fun was getting there. I'll check out more of this author.

It’s been said that you can’t love two men at the same time. You can’t split your heart, soul, and body in half. But I’m here to tell you, you can. Dylan Cole is like ice, sharp and unpredictable, the thunder inside a tumultuous storm. Smith Reid is warmth, soft and gentle, perfect like a sunny day. Both are mine. But I can have only one. There are two sides to this tale. I'm here to tell you mine. If you think this story is about a cheater, you couldn’t be more wrong.

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier.

I hired her to be my girlfriend. To fix my reputation. To save my career. It's not that I don't want a girlfriend. I do. I want it all. Wife, kids, side-by-side burial plots. The problem is - I can't have any of it. So I've made myself untouchable. The quintessential bachelor of baseball. Because it's not worth the risk. Not even for someone I love. Especially not for someone I love. We made the arrangements. We agreed to a contract. It's iron clad. No sex. No love. No future.

The "fake fiance" type story is overdone for me personally. It better be truly special or have unique wrinkles and I need to really like the MC. It wasn't, it didn't, and I didn't care for Sawyer or Aspen all that much. Love this author and loved the first two of this series...this one just wasn't for me

It was my home run ball that shattered her face. Right along with her modeling career. Now it's my mission to help her rebuild her life. And get her to love the game that she hates. The game that dictates my life both on and off the field. But when the lines of our friendship become blurred, I worry she'll just be another casualty of my three-strikes rule. The rule I have to protect my money, my future, my heart. No girl has ever broken it. I've never wanted one to. Until now.

Samantha Christy is an automatic credit or purchase for me. Her books are great and this was no exception. 5 Big Stars!

Side Note: This is book one of this series, but it does have ties with her Mitchell Sisters and Stone Brothers series. It can easily and undoubtedly will be enjoyed by itself but for the full experience I recommend listening to those first.
