"Commitment. That's what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin's done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn't enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny's death, about not going to Iraq, but I can't keep living this double life. I love him desperately, but he's got so many demons, and if he can't open up to me now, then he'll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I'm out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me" -- from publisher's web site.… (mere)

I read this as a standalone. With that in said, I did enjoy this book. Lots of back & forth between Colin and Jen. Jen tried to hold her on but yet still needed Colin. And he was always there. Maybe at first more out of feeling obligated but later out of love. Two messed up people working through their problems to be together. Good read, would like to read all of the previous books in this series.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

**Copy provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

So this is Colin and Jen´s story. In case you need a refresher, Colin is Fable´s boss, Jen is her friend and co-worker.

Colin and Jen are so different from Fable and Drew...but I enjoyed them just as much if not a little more. Jen has done things she isn´t proud of in her past, things she felt she needed to do in order to take care of herself. She beats herself up daily for the things she can not change. Afraid that if Colin knew the extent of her secrets that he wouldn´t care about her anymore. Which she can´t risk because she is in love with him and has been for a while. Tired of feeling like a helpless woman she decides to take care of herself. Move out of Colin´s and move away. She doesn´t want to keep staying there in love with him and have him be so oblivious. Can you blame a girl?

Colin is guilty. He let his best friend down and now he feels like he has also let Jen down. He promised Danny he would look after Jen and he has, except for that time when he didn´t. He wants her, but thinks she deserves better. But when she drops the moving bomb, he finally, FINALLY starts to get it.. Things between them is hot. They get each other more than they even realize or cared to admit.
Great read, I am glad they both started to get over their hangups. Colin´s guilt and Jen´s self loathing. I do want more of them and everyone else. I am glad there was some scenes that had either Drew or Fable in them too. I couldn´t put this book down! ( )

Synposis:
Commitment. ThatÛªs what I really want from Colin. Ever since my brother, Danny, died in Iraq, Colin‰Ûªs done so much to help me, including giving me a job at his popular restaurant so I can leave my crappy waitressing job at the strip joint. But lying in bed with him every night to comfort him from his horrible nightmares isn‰Ûªt enough anymore. I know he feels guilty about Danny‰Ûªs death, about not going to Iraq, but I can‰Ûªt keep living this double life.

I love him desperately, but he‰Ûªs got so many demons, and if he can‰Ûªt open up to me now, then he‰Ûªll never be the real partner I need him to be. I gave him a month, and now I‰Ûªm out of here. If he truly loves me like he says, he knows where to find me.

‰ÛÏI broken promises. To you, to your parents, to your brother. I don‰Ûªt want to break any more.‰Û

When the men in Monica‰Ûªs books love, they love hard. And when the women want it, they take it! Hell yeah!

This book does not have the sweet and easy love. This books love is hard, an angst, passionate, and AWE worthy. This is a book that defines the kind of man that is true. A man, in my opinion, who loves but will be forlorn due to man law and when there is a glitch in the man law, or a hot chick over rules it, then they think with the man-hood.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve waited this long; I‰Ûªm dying to see you fall apart.‰Û

‰ÛÏOpen your eyes,‰Û his deep voice commands. ‰ÛÏLook at me.‰Û

‰ÛÏI want you to know who‰Ûªs about to make you come‰Û

‰ÛÏYou‰Ûªre so hot. And wet.‰Û

‰ÛÏTell me what you want. Tell me what to do to take you there.‰Û


This story has some serious steam factors. Monica gives you the tease, gets you interested, turns it up a notch, gets you a little moist, and then it is electric and you need a towel to clean up. The imagination this author has and the fits she can lead my mind and body to, WOW.

That Colin, oh my, is one hot alpha male.

I really like Colin and Jen‰Ûªs characters.

They were the couple that should be but were not. They have this natural way with each other. Truly, the similarity and proximity of attraction, they have this down; they have known each other since potty breaks and nap times; and they are the angst of love.

Jen wants to be with Colin but can‰Ûªt. So she makes plans to leave, start her life over without him. (In a cocoon)
Colin wants to be with Jen but can‰Ûªt. So he lets her go. (Free like a butterfly)

But you want them together; you want the HEA, the ending of all endings.

I don‰Ûªt want to give away the story except to say: By reading this book you must know that love is not the only thing that can save you from yourself, sometimes it‰Ûªs the thing that is pushing you away.

Happy reading. ( )
