Synopsis

A weekend fling in Atlantic City couldn’t be more out of socially shy Zach Cohen’s comfort zone, but a bet with his best friends forces him to put aside the humiliation he’s hidden for years, stepping away from his computer screens and on-line world. When he meets Sam Stein, despite their spark, Zach expects nothing more than a night of passion and a kiss goodbye. Yet weeks later, he can’t keep the man out of his head.

After a split second decision with tragic results ends his twenty year police career at the same time his relationship falls apart, Sam Stein is drifting through life. At his best friend’s urging he agrees to a trip to Atlantic City to clear his head. What Sam doesn’t plan on is meeting Zach Cohen, whose sweet nature and honesty has him thinking maybe he could move forward, until Zach leaves him without explanation, reinforcing Sam’s belief that people can’t be trusted.

Well-meaning friends refuse to let Zach and Sam hide from each other, forcing them to realize their weekend is much more than a one night stand. Before that can happen, Zach must come to terms with his past and stand up for his own independence, while Sam has to learn to take a chance and believe in himself and people again. All bets are off when dreams become reality and forever doesn’t seem to be long enough.

This book was so beautiful and just so good!
This author and the way she writes sweet romance books, they grab me every time and I can not put them down once I start reading.
With this book you get sweet, shy and quiet Zach. I loved his character in the first book and after reading this book I love his character so much more now.
Then there was Sam’s character and there is just something about a sweet caring ex- cop who just wants to take care of Zach and make him happy when Zach has not had much happiness in a long time.
The two of them together, I do not think I can put into words how much I loved them together.
You do get your angst with this book and the sweet also the steam between this two which was just so hot! The way the author wrote these characters was just amazing because this story draws you in and you feel like you are feeling everything they are going through. You also see the characters from the first book in this series which I loved! I have say I can not wait for Marcus’s turn because I want to see the man that stops Marcus in his tracks and makes him give up his player ways.

All together I really loved this book!
I would definitely 100% recommend this book!

Oh God where do I start. I absolutely loved this book but it doesn’t surprise me as I love the first installment. The way the author develops her characters is amazing, it is clear that she knows everything about them and that comes across when you read the book. There was sweet love and also angst. I loved how Sam just wanted to take care of Zach. I loved Zach in the first book and fell in love with him even more in this book. Sam was just amazing and I quickly fell in love with him also. I was wondering how the author would be able to being to totally different characters together but she did it.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and can’t wait for the next installment to see how the author will bring Marcus to his knees.

This is the second book in the series, can be read as a standalone but I think you would enjoy it more with some of the backstory from the previous book. Zach is a geek and a loner. His friends have a bet going with him for his weekend away in Atlantic City for a convention. Sam is an ex-cop and goes to a convention with his best friend to get away. When these two meet sparks fly. This was a great book, it was more than hot sex, it was about dealing with the past and fighting for what you want and who you love. It was great seeing the guys from the previous book too. I hope we get a book on Marcus soon, he needs love! Highly recommend.

Zach is a successful, very shy man who has very romantic notions for what he wanted his life to be.  However, tragedy struck early for him and he was left with his romantic notions.  While his friends are trying desperately to get Zach out in to the dating world, he is trying just as hard to keep himself cocooned in his own cyber world.  His conference in Atlantic City was just the escape Zach needed to reinvent himself for that one weekend.
Sam is a struggling ex-cop who’s trying to figure out where to go next.  When his friend, Henry invites him to Atlantic City for a conference, Sam decides he has nothing to lose.  Sam’s weekend was changed when he saw Zach.
They had instant chemistry and while their night was passionate, because of Zach’s obligations, it was also cut very short.
I liked how Stevens was able to convey the time that passed without inserting meaningless dialogue to do so.  The story progressed and it was both sweet and sometimes full of angst.  There was your typical miscommunication, reconnection and purging of issues, but it was all done in a thoughtful manner.
I really enjoy Stevens’ writing and this was a great second book.  Can’t wait to read more!

AuthorBio

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending just around the corner. I started reading traditional historical romances when I was a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until I picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that my interest in romance novels became renewed.

But somewhere along the way, my tastes shifted. While I still enjoys a juicy Historical romance, I began experimenting with newer, more cutting edge genres and discovered the world of Male/Male romance. Once I picked up her first, I became so enamored of the authors, the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion of the books, I knew I wanted to write my own.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
