Sarah Murphy plans other people's weddings. She's gorgeous and successful, but she also carries a dark secret.

At one of her events, she meets Joe Sullivan, a sexy photographer with a difficult past of his own. When he snaps a rare unguarded photograph of her and captures the real person hiding behind the facade, she feels exposed. To restore the upper hand, she tries to do what she always does: use sex to defuse the situation.

While Joe is eager to deepen his relationship with Sarah, he's aware of her emotional shield and the way she disconnects from her body. Seeing her at her most vulnerable doesn't scare him off, but he needs to know what she's hiding.

Sarah has a tough decision to make. Does she want to go on living a lonely, emotionally frozen life? Or can she finally risk revealing the truth and move forward with Joe?

Kassiah: I started this book months ago, and didn’t like it so I put it down. I picked it back some time later, and I got a little over half-way through this book before I finally threw in the towel. This is not the book I signed up for. Sure, the summary says that the heroine has a dark secret, but I had no idea how dark that secret was.

Still, I do not like to give books terribly low ratings just because I don’t like them. So keeping in mind that I only read the first half, here are my thoughts about this book.

Sarah is a wedding planner and meets photographer Joe at an event that she coordinated. He’s hot, so is she–of course they’re going to hook up that night.

This book deals with a sensitive issue (actually a couple of them), but the one that disturbed me the most is the secret that Sarah harbors, and I cannot explain what completely turned me off from this book without revealing that secret. So, if you don’t want to know, don’t highlight the spoiler:

Because of Sarah’s lack of trust in men and her inability to get too close, she pushes Joe away. He comes back, figures out that he has to be gentle with her. Almost immediately after determining that he can’t touch her any way he wants, things like this happened:

He fucked her like an animal would, all restraint gone.

So it’s not just the issues that the characters face that made me not like this book. I didn’t like Sarah. I didn’t connect at all with Joe. And I thought the lemons barely made sense. #flounce
