I really enjoyed this book. It is the first book I've read by Kahlen Aymes, but it will not be the last. This book had a lot of twists and turns that keep you involved and wanting and needing to know what is going to happen next. I loved Alex and Angel, both are very likeable main characters. There is definitely a lot of sexual attraction and an instant connection between the two but they take things slow and dont try to rush the relationship, which is a nice change of pace compared to other books. The main characters are also a little older p around 30, and know who they are and where they are going professionally in life. 

Angel is a clinical psychologist and also hosts a late night once a week radio show, giving advice and listening to confessions. She was hurt in the past and does not do emotional relationships. 

Alex is a rich CEO who also doesn't do relationships. However I wouldn't classify him as a player either. He gets involved in monogamous sexual relationships void of any emotional attachments.

Sparks fly both times Alex and Angel meet each other (you'll have to read to understand what Im talking about here). Alex and Angel have so much in common and are comfortable with each other, they have great conversations and both take it just as well as they dish it out. There is lots of playful, funny banter. However, both are fighting their true feelings for each other because they are both scared. 

Angel was my favorite character because she is a strong female that did not fall all over Alex. She held her own and if anything Alex was the one falling. Not only were the main characters
Engaging but the secondary characters are just as entertaining. Darrin, Alex's best friend and Angels boss at the radio station, and Becca, Angels best friend and single mother to Jillybean(loved her so cute, Anga and Zanda) I can see a love connection there and am rooting for them to get together!!

This isn't just a romance but there is suspense involved too. A certain case Angel is working on is turning out to be dangerous, to not only her but to Alex too.  We will wait to see how that will play out and to see of Alex and Angel will just give in and let there true feelings show because the book is left open.  There isn't a huge I don't know how I'll survive without knowing what will happen cliffhanger but there are definetly a lot of questions left to be answered and I can't wait to find out those answers! I need more and would highly recommend this book.
