Derek Alexander is an ex-Marine, ex-cop, and the top investigator in his field. Melissa Jones is a small-town girl trying to escape her troubled past.

When the two intersect in a bar in Arizona, their sexual chemistry is off the charts. But what is revealed during their "one week stand" only complicates matters.

I am so happy that I was given this book to review because let me just tell you what a sweet little gem it is!! For a debut novel it ROCKED!! Bravo Ms. Louise – I can’t wait for more!

Melissa heads off to a spa retreat in the hopes that a week of relaxing will help her forget, if only for a little while, the nightmare that her life has become. She never expected to meet a deliciously sexy man who brings out the sex goddess in her! But oh, does she ever!

Derek Alexander, ex-cop, ex-Marine, all around holy shit sex-on-a-stick (sorry, I tend to get distracted where Derek is concerned) is at the same spa resort for a financial security convention. They meet one night in the bar at the resort and OMG do the sparks fly!! Lots of incredibly hot, dirty sex between these two commences. But of course Melissa believes herself to be totally unavailable and they decide to have a one-week stand.

Of course even a week, or less really, of that kind of emotionally intense connection, even if they both only want to act like it’s just sex, will obviously result in feelings. And oh yeah, there are feelings. Lots of them! Problem is they both have lives with secrets. Melissa is certain she has fallen in love with Derek, and fairly certain he feels the same, and is determined that once her drama is wrapped up she will go to him.

That is until Derek’s secret threatens to tear them apart for good!! This book was chocked full of delicious sex, a little heartache, some tears (mine included) and some drama and suspense all topped off with a beautiful HEA!! I fell in love HARD with these characters and really enjoyed the time that I got to spend with them!! I am anxiously awaiting the next installment in this series! I am hooked!
