Claire rubbed her temple with her free hand. We can do this the easy way or the hard way. Claire is a physiotherapist she just picked up her last case before graduating. She is determined to get her new client walking in the next five weeks until she meets him and all thoughts vanish.
She immediately recognizes him and is thrown through a loop. Her new client is a guy she once shared a kiss with not to long ago. Nate is oblivious to the connection Claire makes, he's to busy checking her out.
And he definitely likes what he sees. Claire decides to keep the memory to her self since he seems to not remember. Nate's charm has never failed him Claire is not falling for his flirtatious ways or the the sexy tattoo's that run up and down his sexy forearms and biceps Nate and Claire bond over the next few weeks.
When she turns down his advances they settle into a comfortable friendship. She learns that they share a few things in common. Both of them are very adventurous. Nate loves to travel and traveling is something she wants to do in the near future. She also learns that he loves to surf and he offers to teach her; she picks up surfing quick. The attraction between them builds but Nate promised to keep it platonic so he doesn't make a move. Yet his feelings still surface and bubble up in to their friendship.
Nate, I have a boyfriend. He stroked her cheek slowly, delicately. This thing between you and me. Breathe, Claire. Claire begins to question her relationship with Dave and her life as a whole.
Nate had managed to push all her buttons and make her question her life. He infuriated her, yet excited her. When Nate gets stuck in a dark place Claire is there to pull him out in to the light. However Claire has not been completely honest with Nate.
Things go south between the two when he realizes Claire has withheld information from him. Information about how they first met prior to his accident. I loved the two main characters.
Mainly I found Nate to be irresistible he was cocky and everything that came out of his mouth was pure entertainment. While sex did not play a big role in this book it still had sexy moments. Dear readers, If you are looking for a witty yet sexy read then this book is for you! The book does have a minor love triangle however no cheating occurs. Read it!!! Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads! View all 31 comments. Jan 20, Katy rated it liked it.
It was an enjoyable read though I felt the pacing was a bit choppy as I kept bouncing from liking the book and not liking the book. And I just wish there were some great lines that stayed with me, although the writing is not bad. Nate is a tortured bad boy who can't forgive himself for this father's death.
I liked that Salmond didn't make the book too emotionally heavy, especially since a lot of authors try to overdo 3. I liked that Salmond didn't make the book too emotionally heavy, especially since a lot of authors try to overdo it with the guy's point of view. Pretty quickly, you can tell that Nate and Claire has a history, and I'm glad that this wasn't one of those books where the author tries to drag out the secret of how they knew each other.
There were things that I did find a bit unrealistic though. Claire did some very non-therapist things that could cost her career well, I guess her future license.
And coming to a random guy's house and starting to clean up and cook for him. A little on the unreal side. But the story moved along with Claire and Nate being friends, leading up to what you know would be the inevitable. Don't get me wrong, there were times that I was so frustrated with Claire - how she could be so blind, her denial about Dave. At the same time, I also understand where she's coming from.
It's hard to leave a relationship with someone you care about, especially when it's with someone who's future is so uncertain. But I've read other books such as Thoughtless and Avoiding Commitment that just made me want to pull my hair out, and this book didn't because Salmond didn't try to overdo it. Overall, it's not a bad read at all. Still, even though there were parts I didn't like, I enjoyed reading it.
Seems a little heavier than what I'm in the mood for, but I need a break with the angel books I am planning to read. View all 3 comments. Jan 20, Ornella Nyx rated it liked it Shelves: stand-alone.
