On a stormy night in Portland, Oregon, cynical ad exec Lily Bishop crashes into a stunning classic car driven by a dark, handsome stranger with strong hands. His powerful touch makes her remember old dreams she thought she abandoned twenty years ago. Back then, she traded her MFA in photography for a lucrative advertising position that twists people’s deepest desires into just another data point.
Though he’s struggling to take his hot rods to the big time, mechanic Raine Reyes won’t accept help from anyone -- certainly not an uptown woman like Lily whose miles-wide reckless streak brings out the repressed bad boy in him. He knows he should run from her offer to be the new face of her next expensive advertising campaign, but he’s too tempted… by her. He sees right through her to the forgotten needs, the neglected fantasies, and the woman she always wanted to be.

We start out in Portland, with Lily crashing into another car and meets a handsome stranger. His touch is powerful and she has flashbacks to twenty years ago. She traded her MFA in photography for an advertising position. Raine doesn’t want to accept help from anyone. He definitely doesn’t want help from Lily. He wants to run from her offer but he’s tempted by her. He sees the real her and wants to make her the woman she could be. Lily accidently sends pictures of Raine to a potential client and that is how Raine got offered the modeling job. He wants to be around Lily. They have a connection but neither of them wants to admit it. I really enjoyed this book. It was different. The threesome kind of threw me off. I guess I wasn’t expecting it. "Still kissing her, he kicked the step stool back and levered her knee up so he could step between her spread legs. One step and he'd pin her on the counter. He really should give her another chance to walk away. But where his T-shirt had pulled out of his jeans, she curled her fingers behind his belt into the waistband and tugged him closer."
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
