Blurb (from Goodreads):Robin used to be a party girl… until she got black out drunk and woke up in bed with her best friend's boyfriend. Now she's faced with being THAT girl, and couldn't be more disgusted with herself. She can't even tell her friends the reason for her sudden sobriety and she avoids everyone until she meets Phoenix—quiet, tattooed, and different in every way that's good and oh, so bad…
Phoenix is two days out of jail when he meets Robin at his cousin's house, and he knows that he has no business talking to her, but he's drawn to her quiet demeanor, sweet smile, and artistic talent. She doesn't care that he's done time, or that he only has five bucks to his name, and she supports his goal to be a tattoo artist.
But Phoenix knows Robin has a secret, and that it's a naïve dream to believe that his record won't catch up with them at some point. Though neither is prepared for the explosive result when the past collides with the present…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was an NA contemporary romance story, featuring a man just out of prison.
Robin was an okay character, and it was easy to understand why she was so upset about blacking out and sleeping with her best friend’s boyfriend. Phoenix was a bit of a live wire though, and I’m surprised he didn’t end up back in prison for the things he did towards the end of this book.
The storyline in this was about Robin feeling guilty over the sex with her best friend’s boyfriend, whilst he wanted it to happen again. Then we had the romance between Robin and Phoenix that was pretty good, but basically most of the book was just waiting for the best friend to find out what had happened.
The ending to this was happy, although again, I’m surprised Phoenix managed to stay out of Jail.
