One of Amazon's Best Romances of September & Best Romances of 2017

A 2017 RT Reviewers' Choice Award Nominee for Best Contemporary Love & Laughter

You don't know what you've got until it's gone...

Police academy cadet Charlie Burns can't believe his luck when the gorgeous blonde he meets in a bar murmurs those magic words: "Nothing serious, 'kay?" Mind-blowing, no-strings sex with Ever Carmichael—it's the holy grail of hookups for a guy who's too busy following in his law enforcement family's footsteps to think about getting serious. Charlie's all about casual...that is, until Ever calls it quits and his world tilts on its axis.

Ever knows that when you control the relationship game, you can't get played. But for the first time, she wants more than short-term satisfaction. Step one: end her fling with commitment-phobic Charlie. Step two: sacrifice herself to the ruthless NYC dating scene. Yet everywhere she turns, there's Charlie, being his ridiculously charming self. No online match or blind date compares to the criminally hot cop-in-training, but they're over. Aren't they?

If love is a four-letter-word, why does the idea of Ever seeing someone else tie Charlie up in knots? Now he's desperate to win her back...and a little date sabotage never hurt anyone, right?

        August 14, 2017
        A no-strings-attached physical arrangement takes a turn for the messy and coercive when police academy cadet Charlie Burns and caterer Ever Carmichael begin navigating a complex relationship. He’s all but married to his work, and she lives by a “30 days and it’s over” relationship credo passed down by her mother. When they break up at the end of the allotted month, Charlie realizes he wants more from Ever. His strategy: act as her friend, sabotage any other dates she goes on, and catfish her online in another persona, all to win her affections for good. Meanwhile, Ever, now searching for true love, remains susceptible to Charlie’s physical charms; they wind up in bed frequently, despite being “just friends.” The end goal is a traditional romantic happily-ever-after, but this particular story seems more like a cautionary tale of an obsessive stalker with rage issues (such as assaulting a fellow cadet) and a brainwashed victim who’s far too willing to forgive his excesses and trespasses. Bailey (Too Hard to Forget) packs this story with copious scenes of steamy sex, powerful chemistry between the leads, and enjoyable supporting characters, but they don’t mitigate the abusive aspects. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary.

        When Charlie and Ever meet, it seems like a match made in heaven for two people determined to have a no-strings-attached relationship, but when the rules--and their feelings--change, it'll take some missteps and a few high jinks before they realize they're meant for each other.Ever's mother taught her their family tradition well--do not depend on men, financially or emotionally. Avoid relationships, which means shutting them down after a month, and always choose unavailable partners. Lately Ever's been ignoring men and focusing on her catering business. She's a little surprised when she meets Charlie, a police academy recruit, and their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Charlie comes from an NYPD legacy family that expects him to be the best in his class, so he tells himself that their nothing serious affair is just what he wants. Meanwhile, Ever is confused. After a lifetime of emotional distance, her mother confesses she's lonely and encourages Ever to look for love. Knowing Charlie is unavailable, she breaks it off to look elsewhere, while Charlie proposes a friendship and does everything he can to secretly sabotage her search, even as the two discover things about each other their hurried sexual encounters never offered. By the time they admit their true feelings for each other, there are huge new layers of distrust along with more authentic connections, and it will take some soul-searching to get to the truth of their love. Bailey's humor, realism, and great writing make this a fun, compelling read, though at times the main characters' obliviousness and immaturity bog down the journey. Recommended for readers who don't mind gritty language. Blazing hot sex scenes heighten the tension of this emotional exploration of passion and love, tempered by moments of winsome romance and slapstick comedy.
