SYNOPSIS: It was the friends-with-benefits proposition he never saw coming… While Arran Adair might have followed the call of wanderlust in his younger years, it isn’t the reason he stayed away from Ardnoch. Home now, desperate to put the sins of his past behind him, and rebuild his life in the Scottish Highlands, Arran could never have predicted Eredine Willows. The Ardnoch Estate Pilates instructor is a complicated mystery and one Arran can’t help but want to solve. Eredine has spent the last eight years hiding in Scotland and building walls between her and the people she cares about. Arran is the first Adair who doesn’t treat her as if she’s fragile and demands a genuine friendship. Yet, the attraction sizzling between them is undeniable. So when she realizes she trusts him, Eredine surprises them both by offering Arran one night of no-strings passion. Arran knows one night will inevitably lead to a desire for more and he’s willing to stay by Eredine’s side for as long as it takes to convince her there’s something real between them. However, just when Arran thinks they might build a future together, Eredine’s past returns to stalk her. And Arran won’t just have to battle her demons to keep them together. He’ll need to battle his own.
REVIEW: Oh this one was good! I love a man that is all in when it comes to the woman they want to be with. Eredine has major hold-ups and for good reason, but man did I want her to figure her issues out. Arran is total book boyfriend material. AND THAT CHEMISTRY!!! Seriously, when we finally get the steamy scene, I didn’t know how Ery held anything back from Arran after that. It was so interesting finally learning why he stayed away from the family, and seeing the impact this event had on him. There were times I didn’t love how they handled things, but in a way that made the story more realistic. I kind of figured some of the mystery out, but with the way Samantha Young writes, that doesn’t take away from the storyline at all!!
