A new adult romance novel by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author H.M. Ward

Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word.

Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does.

The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.


Uncertainty lines Peter’s gaze. “I can’t do this anymore. Every time I see you, it’s like I've had my heart ripped out of my chest. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep. It’s not a crush. It was never a crush. I love you. I took too long to say it. I took too long to fix this, but I choose you.”


Last time she tried to set me up, I ended up on a date with a twitchy klepto. Let’s just say things didn't go well. He picked up everything, except the check.  The time before that was equally horrifying. I missed some verbal cue and the guy ended the night with a face full of pepper spray.


I stand there for a moment, not knowing if I've been stood up, when I feel the hairs on my neck prickle. Someone is looking at me. I feel the gaze on the back of my neck. I turn slowly and scan the room. A set of eyes, as blue as gemstones, gleam back at me. My stomach flutters. Oh, holy hell, he’s hot. I walk slowly towards his table, my heart banging against my ribs.
