From the Inside Flap
"No wonder our date was a failure. We forgot to go dancing."
He took her in his arms and swept her into an impromptu waltz. Before she had a chance to protest, he spun her in a fast circle, his left hand warm on her hip.
With a dazzling grin, Noah waltzed her in a series of concentric circles before abruptly stopping. Still carried by the momentum, Charlie crashed into Noah.
"Sorry." He laughed before his face grew serious.
He was panting slightly as he looked down at her face curiously. Slowly, he lowered his head, not stopping until his lips were a hairsbreadth from hers.
With her heart pounding loudly in her ears, Charlie leaned forward, closing the distance between them.
His lips came down on hers, the pressure light and sweet. Her eyes drifted closed as his right hand dropped to join the other on her waist. He tugged her forward until her body was flush against him.

I happen to love this series, even the novella's are cute. I mean, they aren't as good as the full books but for novella's they are pretty good. Once again, like in the first book, we have a man falling in love with someone "related" to him. I believe Charlie was considered Noah's step-aunt though she was younger than him. Noah seemed to be drifting around with no direction after a race car accident. He meets Charlie and suddenly he knows what's been missing. I'm a sucker for a man that instantly knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go after it.
I would say this novella ends on a Happily For Now rather than a Happily Ever After but that's okay, I choose to believe they go on to get married and make it.
Short and sweet - 5 stars
If you read the first book in this series, you will have met Alex. Noah is Alex's cousin, but this is the first time we've heard anything about him. When we first meet him, he is in the hospital after crashing his race car and ending up having surgery on his leg, along with a couple of cracked ribs and a concussion. Alex makes a suggestion that Noah look at putting his college degree to use by going to work for one of his friends if he doesn't want to work for his father or any of his family.
After a couple of months getting back on his feet, he finds himself at his father's summer home. Since his father is out of the country for a month or so, he feels like he can chill out there and decide what he wants to do with his life next. What he didn't know, was that his stepmother's younger sister was staying there as well until she finished high school. One kiss that was meant to be short and gentle, turns his world upside down and the chemistry between them is so strong that he doesn't trust himself to stay in the same house with her. This was such a cute storyline and I hope that we get to see more of them in the following books in this series.

Cute short read. Charlie is naive yet sassy, and Noah is just the man to help encourage her to become more of herself.
The writing is good, but the story is somewhat lacking in the first half that I almost stopped reading. I was glad to see a HEA and more development between the characters in the last half.
It was too quick too easy,Noah's acceptance of Charlie and his feelings of her and vise versa, it was too quick and easy... I'm really into angst ridden stories w/19 year old virgins and I've seen how you can meet someone w/chemistry soo amazing you finally get why some ppl totally get carried away run off to Vegas or get drunk and married while there but still there needed to be more to this... I met ,I saw,I F'ed,I claimed,I told everyone to back off,we moved to live our HFN dream,was nice but didn't really cute it for me .... Noah good, Charlie good,but they deserved more character ( Noah had more character,Charlie felt there for the ride ) more story... I doubt it would have been that simple r/l and even if it was ? Something more was needed for this to be complete ... Thank for the story...
