Zoey Flowers always counted on her older brother Zachary to show her the wild side of life. She was the good girl and followed the rules that Zachary loved to break. They seemed to be opposites in every way. But when Zachary dies at he age of 27, like so many of his ancestors before him, the driving force behind Zoey’s control leaves her.

Nate Hanson is by cliché tall, dark, and handsome. From the moment Zoey lays eyes on her brother’s best friend, she is magnetically drawn to him. Stumbling from his bed in a mass of confusion, she feels like she knows him. And even if it’s only through her brother’s eyes—she doesn’t care.

When Zoey discovers her brother wasn’t who he seemed to be, she wants Nate to help her discover the truth. While endeavoring to learn the reasons behind her brother’s lies and fighting against what she believes to be her destiny, Zoey discovers something about herself—her own sensuality. She wants to explore her deepest, darkest desires and with no one other than the man who unlocked them—Nate Hanson.

Nate feels conflicted, yet is drawn into Zoey’s world of obsession over destiny. And in the process he not only agrees to help her uncover the truths behind her brother’s life but to explore the sensuality he has drawn to the surface. 

Together in the quest for the truth they explore a side of life Zoey never knew existed. 

Her brother might be her reason for staying in Miami but Nate consumes Zoey’s thoughts and his touch controls her.

Zoey has opened Nate’s closed heart and together a love rises that neither was expecting.

What began as a journey to uncover one man’s life turns into a discovery about themselves.

But can they embrace this new destiny or will fear and guarded apprehension win out in the end?
I absolutely adore Kim Karr.  After reading all of the Connections series, I've been hooked and can't get enough so when I heard she was coming out with a new kind of book I was intrigued.

The story starts off with Zachary Flowers and damn do I wish we could have had more about him in the story.  I was bereft when the story was from Zoey's POV ... I'd kind of love a back story where Zach is alive and how he lived his final months.  But lets back up.  You see, Zach and Zoey are brother and sister.  They grew up in a family where people don't make it past their 27th birthday.  So a couple months after Zach's death at 27 years old, Zoey, now 27 heads to Miami, FL to sort through her brothers things and try to get past the fact that destiny may too be coming for her before her 28th birthday.

We meet Nate who is absolutely delicious and dreamy of course but dark on the inside and won't let people in.  He's smokin though ... phew will you need ice water and a cold shower after this boys done with you.  Nate tries hard to resist Zoey but he can't and though it may be a summer time fling to remind her why she's alive, sparks fly that are more than just a passing craze.

I adored the story, the writing of course was incredible, I wouldn't expect anything less from Kim.  The heat was off the charts hot.  I did feel the book was a bit formulaic and predictable but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable to read and fall in love with.  Follow along on Zoey's journey of self discovery and Nate's journey to let go of the past so they can both face the future.  You won't be disappointed!  I highly recommend!

I live in Florida with my husband and four kids. I've always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, I wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. I went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise my family. I currently work part-time with my husband and full-time embracing one of my biggest passions—writing.
