Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague’s fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University.
She didn’t plan on attending a masquerade party.
She sure didn’t plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago—the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.
Once back at Whitman together, they endeavor to pretend they never had their night of unbridled passion in London.
But that’s damn hard to do when you live in the same house…
One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.
A smokin’ hot British player…
A jilted girl…
One night of mistaken identity…

*A modern love story inspired by Romeo and Juliet*
Without much thought except for comfort, instinctively I pressed myself against him, fitting into his arms as easy as breathing. He leaned against the brick wall of the neighboring building and wrapped me up, sensing my need to be grounded.
I don’t know how long we stood like that—maybe a minute, maybe five—but soon our breaths were in sync; the rise and fall of his chest in perfect accord with mine.
One of his hands traced down my spine and then up. He outlined my shoulder blades with his fingertips. His hands drifted to my hips then caressed back up to my hair, massaging my scalp.
But what had started as an innocent hug changed.
Fire licked my skin everywhere he touched. Of their own accord, my hands slid down to his waist and teased the line where his jeans rested on his hips. I went further, my fingers toying with the V at his hip until I felt him harden against me.
Lips brushed the top of my hair. “Remi . . . look at me,” he said, his voice raspy.
If you look up, you’re going to kiss him . . .
I tilted my head up and his mouth fused with mine in an instant.
Insistent. Wild. Hot. Yes! This is what I needed.
I groaned, and my hands rushed to his shoulders and dug in.
He was wrong—terribly wrong—for me, but it felt so right.
I felt wonderfully alive, revved up, as if I could crush a car with my bare hands, or push Dax against the wall and fuck him senseless. I recognized the feeling for what it was—an I almost-died-and-now-I-want-to-experience-life feeling.
“Wait,” he breathed as I ran my hand under his shirt. “It’s adrenaline. You’ve been through a trauma. You don’t really want this—”
“Shhh.” I lifted his shirt and kissed his chest, my tongue flicking over his nipple. “You taste like every good thing I’ve ever wanted.”
His taut restraint snapped, and he swayed into me. “God, I can’t tell you no.”
Ilsa Madden-Mills did it again. She wrote an NA romance that is a #MustRead. And trust me, for me, those are very few and far in between. I’m not a real fan on this age group (on paper only of course lol) because their decision making mostly just irritates me. That’s the best way I can put it. And so the story is ruined but characterization that is actually true to their age, I just can’t deal. So I try and stay away from such reads. But every once in a while, I jump and take a chance. So here we are ……. and once again … I’m impressed!
Dax and Remi have history. Not a long one, but history just the same. And not a happy one either … but oh so sexy 🙂 And this is their second chance to get it right. They both have baggage and their both skittish, and communication is not always at it’s best, but they ultimately dredge thru it in a really well played story-line.
There are a lot of #feels going on in this story and you WILL be frustrated some times at both Dax and Remi, but in the end, your heart will sing for both of them. There’s a captivating vibe to this story that will have you laughing out loud one moment and ugly crying the next. Ilsa does have a way with words!
So pick this book up because no matter how old these two are … there are lessons in their story we could all relate to #TRUST
