From Booklist

Mia Appleby is a fraud. Outwardly a successful ad exec and fashionista ice queen, she has never emotionally matured from the needy little girl raised in a Tennessee trailer park, and her favorite coping strategy is fast hot sex without commitment. Thus, when Kevin McKnight captures her attention with his bad-boy biker attire and attitude, she enjoys one night with him, then astounds him by walking away. Work-related stresses, combined with the challenges she faces when her rebellious, goth-attired, 16-year-old niece arrives for a visit, push her back into Kevin's arms repeatedly and often until Kevin insists that he deserves more and Mia is struck with the realization that her wonderful new life is empty of any real satisfaction. Set in the Los Angeles hills, Shalvis'contemporary romance contrasts the two very different roads traveled by two people with similar histories: Mia embraces materialism, while Kevin, a high-school teacher, tries to improve the lives of others at the expense of his own.

Mia Appleby is more than satisfied with where she is in life. She has a great paying job, a beautiful home, and she's states away from her mother, her sister, and the trailer home life that she grew up in. After waking up in bed with her gorgeous neighbor, Kevin McNight following a night of toe-curling passion, she can't believe that he's offended that it was nothing more to her than a one night stand, or was it? Mia finds herself thinking about Kevin a good deal of the time.

Mia is determined to remain as far as possible from life as she knew it growing up. Kevin thinks that Mia is shallow and self-centered and when her niece Hope, who has run away from home, comes to stay with Mia he can't believe that the two of them are total strangers to each other, which only reinforces his negative thoughts of her. Mia has no idea how to handle her troubled niece, and is thankful that Kevin, being a high school teacher, understands the workings of the teenage mind. Kevin understands much more than that, he also knows all too well how to unleash Mia's every passion and the two of them can hardly keep their hands off of each other. Kevin is also dealing with a troubled family member, his deaf brother has no self-esteem thanks to their abusive father and Kevin is trying to help him get on the right track, repeatedly having to get him out of trouble.

Mia needs Kevin and Hope needs Mia much more than either is willing to admit. Kevin wants to be there for Mia but convincing her that he wants more than a few quick interludes might prove to be his most difficult endeavor. The relationship between Mia and Hope is excellently written. They both have been deprived of the most basic shows of affection or love, and watching their relationship mesh is heartwarming to say the least.

Mia Appleby has shunned her humble beginnings and has transformed herself from a Tennessee trailer park to a near mansion in the LA hills. She is a shark of an ad exec and exhibits the same behavior in the bedroom - she has never met a man she wants to bed more than once. And then she sleeps with neighbor Kevin... Her orderly world is thrown into chaos as she finds herself wanting more than a night with Kevin, but not able to make any promises beyond that. Further adding a kink to her armor is the arrival of her niece Hope, a surly Goth teen who reminds Mia of herself.

Kevin is a sexy Harley-riding high school science teacher. He supports his ne'er do well half-brother Michael who has permanent hearing loss as a result of a beating buy his father. He knows that in order for Michael to spread his wings he needs to let him fend for himself, but guilt traps him in the never-ending cycle. Kevin in intrigued by Mia, who he thinks is shallow, and finds that all she seems to want from him is nightly stud service. He is amazed that Hope and Mia have never met in person. In a switch from most romance plots, it is the gal with the commitment issues instead of the guy, who is the nurturing one.

As Mia discovers that her sister Sugar is looking for a vacation from parenthood and has no intention of coming to get her daughter, Mia leans on Kevin more and more to help her cope with a role she was not cut out for. Can Hope and Kevin break down the walls that Mia has erected before it's too late?

This is my first Shalvis book and won't be the last. From the witty repartee and sensuality between Mia and Kevin to the dialog via sign language between Kevin and Michael, the story is engaging.

This book by Jill Shalvis is just OK. The other 3rd star reviewer(s) go into more detail about the plot, but this novel didn't provide some of the warm and endearing characters that I'm used to from Ms. Shalvis. I finished the book not giving a damn about any of them, including the teenager! A bit disappointed that I spent the money on the book - it wasn't satisfying and I had no concept o when things were happening. The H/h had NO chemistry and it was too far fetched that they'd be in genuine love by the end of the book and not in a dopamine/sex/lust filled haze.

I give this book 4 1/2 stars. It was Ms. Shalvis' best book thus far. The dialogue was fantastic - witty but hitting the nail right on the head.

Kevin is such a sexy hunk that you can't resist him and want to jump his bones as much as Mia does. Mia comes from a poor background and somewhat dysfunctional family. She leaves home at an early age to make something of herself. She does very well at her career & having the best of everything and keeps thinking achieving one more thing and she will be happy. She meets Kevin and there is instant chemistry. She only wants sex from him and keeps coming back for it.(They live next door to each other.) Kevin wants more but finds it hard to turn Mia down. Mia is afraid to commit or trust anyone.

Between Kevin, Mia's only close friend, Tess and Mia's 16 year old neice (who comes from same background as Mia did) arrives at her doorstep, Mia realizes she CAN trust and love. Secondary plot and characters add to this great story.

The cover is great too; I am a sucker for a story about the hero on a motorcycle. Run out and get this book. You won't be disappointed.
