Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a free copy of the book!

On his 25th birthday, while jogging down, Steve witnesses a kidnapping case. He thought he did a right thing by saving her and he thought he was a hero. Three years later, Tara, who was the victim visits him, after the abduction and Steve is juggling with various lust feelings as Tara is doing sexual advances towards him.

I am having mixed thoughts about this book. First taking positive side, the plot line sounds great to me. However, I didn’t very much like the book much–it became kind of lame and predictable. The writing was a bit sloppy and I didn’t really enjoy reading this book. Too much unnecessary things. If the unnecessary stuff was not in the book particularly the sexual things, then this book might have become great.

I don’t really like giving negative reviews but this is one of the books I didn’t really enjoy reading. Worth two and a half stars in my opinion.

This book will be released on 14th September so you can pre-order your copy now on Amazon!
