Have you ever had your past come back to some what haunt you?  Well, this is one of those stories that will make you wonder what you may have or did do on those nights when you were young and doing things that you may not should have.

I liked how Alexandrea Weis gives us the insight into what and why Madison has done the things she has while in college even if it didn't make sense.  The way that her friends support her especially Charlie is amazing.  I will say that in the beginning of the book I do not like the way that Hayden's character is portrayed, but as the book continues I can understand why he is the seemingly jerk that he really is not.  The thing is, is that he is shocked and surprised to see Madison enter back through is doors for say.

The way that the characters of the book meet, then meet again allows you to say yes fairy tales can come true, or there is a light at the end of the rainbow.  I also loved how Madison always has someone giving her some sort of so called advice and which it always finds away to give us one of those moments where you just have to set there and laugh.  Mrs. Leder is probably the funniest part of this book.. Who says you can't live after 70, or is it that 70 is the new 50.  Well either way she will go OMG she did just say or do that.  Throw Charlie in the mix with her and poor Madison can't help but to question herself.

I hope you get the enjoyment out of this story like I did.  I found myself so involved in reading it that when I got to the end I was like no I want some more.  This can't be the ending.  It is just one of those books like a good romantic comedy that pulls you in, kinda like the movie you got mail.

At the entrance to the patio, she savored the feel of the nippy fall breeze on her hot skin. Then, a familiar laugh made her breath catch in her throat.
Standing by an outdoor fireplace of orange stucco and dressed in a fitted black tuxedo was Hayden Parr. In the pale light of the dozens of cast iron lanterns that were strewn about, his gray eyes appeared magically aglow. His rugged features were accentuated by the dancing shadows of light, making his strongly carved chin and sharp cheekbones even more luscious. In his hand was an old-fashioned glass of dark yellow liquid that matched the dark yellow furniture spread about the patio. He was talking to a beautiful brunette with stunning cheekbones, catlike brown eyes, and a lean figure, not unlike his. Draped in a black and white satin gown that gathered at the waist and collected on her right shoulder, she looked every inch the woman Madison knew she could never be: sophisticated, stunning, and irresistible to men. As she chatted with Hayden, she affectionately placed her smooth white hand on the sleeve of his black tuxedo jacket. 
The well of jealousy that overtook Madison was unexpected; she wanted to scratch the woman’s eyes out. Feeling the desire drain from her body, Madison was about to turn away when Hayden’s eyes found her. Suddenly, she felt naked beneath his gaze. He seemed to drink in every inch of her, and without hesitation she knew what he was thinking. Any woman worth her weight knew that look when she saw it in a man. It was primal; it was instinctual, and utterly carnal.
Putting his drink down on a nearby table, Hayden abandoned the woman at his side and came up to Madison. “You look absolutely wonderful,” he purred in a voice akin to black velvet.
The rush of heat to her cheeks only compounded the tingling in her belly. “Thank you, Mr. Parr.”
He grinned, looking sexy as hell. “None of that Mr. Parr stuff tonight. We’re out of the office and this is a party. Call me Hayden.”
