Every girl has had a broken heart.
Every girl knows love hurts.
Every girl has a story.
This is mine…
My name is Maggie May and I met him under a haze of purple lights. As cliché as it sounds he was tall, dark, and handsome as hell, and I had fireworks in my eyes…literally.
It was New Year’s Eve and beneath the magic of all that glitters and shines, I fell for him and his wicked ways. The way he moved, the way he touched me, the way he brought me to org@sm over and over.
You should know that I don’t believe in love. Fairytales and happily-ever-afters are never anything I’ve dreamed of…until him.
Something changed the moment our eyes met. It wasn’t insta-lust or insta-love, it was simply him and me, and the dance floor at our feet.
The problem is our story ended three days after it started.
But now he’s back.
And he says he’s sorry.
Can I believe him?
Do I want to believe him?
He calls me his bedwrecker…but what if he wrecks me?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
One night turned into so much more. When Maggie May, her roommate Brooklyn, and her friends Makayla and Cam fly to New York from California to celebrate new year, she didn’t expect to start her year in the arms of Brooklyn’s half brother and Cam’s best friend, Keen Masters, a.k.a. Mr. Wall Street Wolf.
But the night proves they have potential to be something more, so despite being on opposite sides of the country, the two try to see where what they have is going on.
Keen Masters is every bit the Wall Street Wolf until he reached a crossroad. His decision leads him to losing who he is and in the process, lets Maggie go.
Left with nothing but a bruised ego and maybe a broken heart, Maggie is determined to move on and forget about Keen. But when he comes back and moves to California––and on Valentine’s Day, no less––she fights hard to resist him, but she and Keen both know it’s futile. Their attraction is off the charts, and when they’re forced to work together, she gives in.
I definitely understand Maggie’s grudge against Keen. He had his reasons, but the bottomline was, he ghosted Maggie. It doesn’t feel great to be treated like that, and Maggie’s already had her share of abandonment. She won’t let anyone hurt her more than they have, and she’ll resist Keen even if he’s hot as sin.
I really like Maggie. She’s a strong-willed, quirky girl and a certified sexpot. I agree with her that guys in suits are hot, and picturing Keen in a well-tailored suit made me swoon.
Keen is a sweetheart. I understood his side when he took a step back early in the story, but I won’t glorify it because we all know it was a total d*ck move. Still, I got that his priority has always been his career, and he didn’t want any distractions. He’s so sweet with Maggie and still so dirty!
I liked how both their conflicts were settled. The main focus of the story was, of course, Maggie and Keen’s relationship from lust to love. Still, it was nice to see the subplots––Keen’s mother and Maggie’s father, to name a few––settled well.
It was a fun, light dual POV story with a few angst along the way. If you’ve read Kim Karr’s other books, you already know how hot her stories are. To those who don’t, you’ll be in for a treat!
