Jessie's a country-music type, with strong hands and she's more of a fitness instructor/yoga type. She's very turned on by him, but they spar with one another in a flirty kind of way. He calls her "princess." She's a strong woman; she wants to make it on her own. But then, there's his kiss...
Enter many different factors, including the smarmy guy who abandoned her at the church and other things that affect their relationship and her livelihood.
Here's where the dichotomy comes in for me. Talia and Jessie have a number of steamy sexual encounters. He calls her "princess." I cannot imagine any woman who projects the strength she does throughout the book allowing any man--even one who has her under a sexual spell--to call her "princess." I don't see a future for this relationship as presented in this book. It seems to be completely centered around sex. Call me crazy, but as someone who's been married to the same man for 45-plus years, I can tell you it ain't all about sex!
I would have liked to have seen a little more character development on the part of both Talia and Jessie. I realize this is a novella, but I think it would have helped me understand how the attraction between these two very different people could be based on something other than this. This author's writing is exciting and creative, and could easily have given me as a reader a little more detail into who these characters are. I wanted to know more about them. That's the difference, for me as a reader, between four and five stars.
When martial arts expert Talia gets left at the altar, she goes on the town in her wedding dress with her girls. They dare her into kissing a stranger who turns out to be someone she knows after all. Good old boy Jessie, a man from her past, has turned up after years and he's just who our kick-butt heroine needs as she discovers that her good for nothing ex was a lot slimier than she'd originally thought.
I loved that she wasn't a typical damsel in distress and Jessie is really well-rounded and grounded. My only complaint is that it is a little book. Her girlfriends were funny and I wanted more about them. Overall, though, if you're looking for a great little contemporary read that will rev your engine and has some fairy tale echoes, this book is for you.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

But the relationship with her ex doesn’t end at the altar. When she discovers he’s been scamming her for months, she comes up with a way to turn the tables. But things get complicated….!
I really enjoyed how the author moved the story along. I love the eye-catching cover. The book is fast-paced, and an easy, engaging read. Definitely recommend.
