Book Description

18+ Due to sexual content and language inculding casual sex and flawed characters. (New Adult)

Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.

Determined to enjoy her new-found freedom, Grayson is intent on sticking with 'no strings attached' relationships—one-night stands, and steamy sex.

But she didn't plan on Derrick.

Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away.

When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book. Must Read June 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was so excited to be lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this book.
I couldn't wait to get started on it. I read it in one sitting and let me tell you this book was amazing.

Grayson is a girl that at the beginning is stuck in a bad relationship. She decides that it is time to get away and heads to her moms house. Once she gets there her twin sister Luna talks her into going out with her to bars and tries to get Grayson to have a one night stand.

"Then he moved his hands into prayer positions at his chest, looked to the ceiling and whispered, "Thank you."

Derrick is Army and in the same unit as Grayson's brother. These two originally met at a coffee shop before Grayson got to her moms house. She runs into him again at a BBQ at her brothers house. She gets warned to stay away from him but sometimes its hard to stay away from a man as hot and sexy as Derrick.. YUMMY.. Derrick ends up getting deployed. Things happen that you wont hear from me. Haha. So you will have to read this book to find out.

I cant go into to much details with these two without giving the book away and I really hate spoiling a book for someone. So basically all I can say is this book was amazing. I laughed and even shed a few tears. I love the characters in this book. They all fit perfectly into the story. This is A.J. Bennett's first book and she did an outstanding job with it. You should definitely grab this one when it comes out.

1.0 out of 5 stars HOW ABOUT NEVER AGAIN March 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I got this book when it was free, if I had paid to read this I would have been really mad.
This was awful! The HEA went from being with only one person for three years to her needing a score card to keep up with every guy she had sex with. She didn't care who she did it with, didn't care if they used protection. After having sex with one guy, he told her he was married and its like oh well?! She even thought about keeping in touch with him! UGH! Whenever the hero would make her mad or blow her off, It's like Who can I screw now. The hero wasn't much better. I don't know how they could ever trust one another to have a real relationship. I need to read something else quick, this has definitely left a bad imprint in my brain. Sorry but this book was not for me. I'm deleting it so I wont ever have to look at the cover again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Derrick June 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Grayson I feel for ya hun, your abusive boyfriend is an a**hat and if I were you I'd punch or kick or perhaps both him in the baby maker. "I don't want anyone else looking at you or talking to you. If I had it my way, I'd keep you locked in the house all to myself." Normally I'd think that's a sweet possessive but when you read what's in front of it you'd be like 'say what?' It's great Grayson has a sister that really cares for her, "did he hurt you? Because I swear I will string him up by his testicles if he did." Grayson is if not nothing but honest, "I'm serious. I'll just hurt you. I can't do a real relationship right now or maybe ever. No dating. No romance. Just sex and friendship." I applaud her for being straight up honest with Derrick, but I did have my issues with her, and this statement, after all I'm a romance kind of girl. Derrick is also an honest boy, "Derrick sighed, pulling into a parking spot. "I don't have a girlfriend. I'm staying with a guy on the team, and they have a kid. I don't think it's appropriate to have sex in their house, and Ethan told me you were living with you mom." It's great to see some guy with morals. He's also quite the looker ladies (winks) "he tossed off his shirt exposing his broad muscular chest. She ran her hands over his rippled stomach and unbuttoned his pants." When their 'non-relationship' starts to go further we see different sides of both Derrick and Grayson, Derrick starts to get more possessive (this one is a good possessive.) "Maybe I changed my mind. I don't like seeing you with someone else. It sorta pisses me off." Derrick can be so real, that it's sweet, "I want to sleep with you, wake up with you. I want to make you smile, and hear your laugh. I want to know everything about you that makes you tick. I want to go in search of rocks with you, and get to know your crazy family better. I want to make you happy, Gray." I really liked this book and I can't wait to see what the author has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars. June 24, 2013
By mimi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this book to read because I thought it seemed like a story line I could really get into. Abusive ex, and the new guy that she doesn't want to get involved with, so they keep it strictly sex. What could go wrong, right? Well, I can't say that I didn't have an idea on how it would end. But, the story was definitely not what I was expecting. Especially toward the second half when the drama really starts to unfold.
I could tell from the beginning that there was a secret that Derrick was keeping from Grayson (love this name, BTW). I never really did put my finger on it, although I thought I had. And in the final chapters of the book, where to emotions run high, I was a little on edge.
My one complaint was Grayson when she would get jealous about how, even though she isn't being monogamous with Derrick, he was seemingly not monogamous back. She was kind of whiny, but I remember being that age, and having those feeling. They just pour out of you and their is no reigning them in.
I'm sure my thoughts are all over the place with this review, but I really did like it, and I would definitely recommend it. I loved the resolution at the end, and how it didn't come lightly for either person.
A definite read.
