Wow... this book was so awesome. I seriously don't know why I hadn't read it sooner.





Grace Hamilton has just arrived to Vegas to go to a law conference. Then she realizes that there is also a porn star convention happening that very same weekend. As she checks in, she happens to bump into a really good looking porn star named Carson Stinger. She didn't know what he did. She thought he was a fellow law student until she saw his name tag. She quickly decides to stay away from him, even if she is attracted to him. She has a plan and she isn't going to stray away from it. Everything is going according to plan so far. Then after getting stuck with him in an elevator, she realizes there is more to him than the cocky mask he wears as his pornstar persona. She wants to know more about him. And after they both confess things to each other while they were trapped, they both don't really want to stay away. Carson proposes they spend a weekend together, where he can give her three incredible nights with him, and learn a few tricks from him, for her future husband.

'I looked into his eyes, deciding that just for tonight, I was going to experience everything I could and enjoy every minute of it.
Life is wild, Carson was right. Or it could be, if you let it. I was going to let it.'

I really liked Grace, but I would be lying if I said I didn't love Carson more. She never really annoyed me. She didn't really make me feel much about her, actually. But I still liked her, and how she started to stand up for herself and her wants. She was always pleasing others and leaving herself last. Carson taught her to live her life as she pleased and not how others dictated. There was a moment when I she made me nervous, though. I didn't know what decision she would make in the end. When their three days were up, I couldn't believe there was so much more of the book left. And I definitely didn't expect the events that took place in the remaining half of the book to go the way they went.



'Carson Stinger, Straight Male Performer' hides behind that mask so no one knows how he really feels inside. He feels worthless and doesn't think he has much to offer but his body. But one weekend with Grace was all it took for both their lives to completely change. He has never wanted a woman more, and more importantly, have her stay with him. But he wants that with Grace. She inspires him want to be a better man so that he he can deserve to be with her. Three days of her doesn't seem to be hardly enough for him, but he knows that is all he can ever give her at the moment. So they part ways after that.

"No one else has ever made me feel the way you do. Not even close. It scared me, Grace, and I reacted. But it's because you are far from nothing to me. You are far from nothing to me."

When I started this book, I didn't expect there to be such a long time of separation between these two. I meant the chemistry was crazy intese and I loved every single on of their interactions. I LOVED Carson. I think he was my favourite in this book. I kept wanting to read more and more of him and his thoughts. I couldn't believe the changed he made for himself. I don't want to reveal too much, because it's better if you just read what happens yourself. I really liked everything he did. He was gorgeous, yeah, but there was so much more to him. He made me swoon like crazy, and absolutely melted my panties. But it really hurt me to see how much it pained Carson to let Grace leave on the final day. I really wanted to hug him and console him.

"I want you so much, Buttercup. I've never stopped wanting you."

"Me neither."

"Tell me you're mine."

"I'm yours. I've always been yours."

Like I mentioned before, I was surprised the direction in which this book took. I never expected it. I loved it so much more than I thought I would. I loved that it was a second chance at love kind of a story because I really enjoy those. I loved the way these two characters would banter. They were really cute and funny. Like their ongoing reference to Titanic and the famous 'floating on a door' scene. It was really hilarious. This book also had plenty of steam. I was quite happy that the sex didn't overwhelm the story for me. I really liked how it was written, especially when showing both of their lives during the time they were apart. I loved it when they finally reunited after all those years and how much they had both changed for the better.Their connection never diminished. The ending was really lovely and I was really happy with it. But I absolutely LOVED the epilogue. It was really beautiful. I didn't think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. I really liked Mia Sheridan's Leo and Leo's Chance, but this is totally different from those books. Still, this one was equally as good. It was a really awesome read and one you should read because of Carson alone. I loved him! I definitely think you should give this a try.
