All she wants is the present
but tomorrow is waiting...

5 stars...


Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare…

Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well—until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he’s determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached.

But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won’t be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her… down to the very soul.

So the book is awesome. The way Samantha writes is unique and talented. She draws us into the story and tells us to deal with her characters. This book has everything you want in a romance. It has the bad boy, the damaged girl, the perfect family, the normal traumas, and the giddy sister.  What else could you possible want.
I devoured this book so fast i regret it ending now. I might read it again in a few months, that's how much i enjoyed it.
I would really advise this book. It's great and the characters are perfect, you can tell they're thoughts and actions, you get used to them, and they are so unique you fell bad for them when something bad happens.
All the fights and good moments, the memories and the crying brings out in you some kind of felling.

Jocelyn and Braden and Ellie and Adam. The two main couples of the book. Here are some of they're story


Let's start with Jocelyn. She has serious problems with trusting people and confide in them. She sees herself has this little thing that deserves no care or love. Since the lost of her parents, when she was fourteen, and the death of her best friend she has let no one come close enough to see the cracks left in her heart.   Until she meets Braden. Oh Braden. The controlling, possessive, sexy, perverted,  flawed boy (millionaire) who feels an attraction  to her since they're breve meeting in a taxi. 

He's all over the place now, and even more Jocelyn has changed into his sister flat, that's when they're second meeting happens. A very naked second meeting. Ahhh So they his it off from the start. She thinks that because he only hooks up with stick blondes she is nowhere near his eye sight. She is wrong, so he offers a proposition- Friends with Benefits for three months and she says yes...

Therefore she starts a relationship she so promised never to have. The cause to her freak outs that very calmly Braden likes to ease. 

They start falling deep for each other and at the end of they're term she breaks up with him until he coaxes her back into dating for real this time. And break up again and back again. And then happy ever after. 

Yup he falls big time!

Passing on to Ellie and Adam (Braden's best friend). They like each other but are too afraid of telling Braden to actually doing something about it. So she dates other people and he threatens the guys to never touch her again or coming near her. She gets pissed and only when it's discovered her having a tumor (benign thank good) it's when he has the balls to come up to her tell her that he loves her and kissing her big time in fornt of all of her family. OH YEAH,.....
