Meg's Review:

The Story of Declan and Leah. I read this straight through. It was one of those novel you just COULDN'T put down. They made a deal. A deal that with all but a few words sealed their fate. They knew it. Really I swear they did, but like all great stories they had to accept what was right in front of them all along. The story was great. I loved every page of it. It flowed well and had a great storyline that melted you at some points and had you giggling at others. The characters were relatable and just fantastically developed. Leah. I really enjoyed that she wasn't some obnoxious typical girl that I wanted to knock out. She help her own and kept me quite entertained. I really just loved all the random things that came from her.
"Fuck" I cursed out in frustration. "Heard that!" Declan yelled from the other side of the door, as his loud laughter faded away. Bastard.
Declan. Yum. I loved him from the start. He was just a great person. Kinda of. Well he was trying to be. Ish. You'll see. He is a bad boy hollywood star. This was my first in this series and it can be read as a standalone, though I will be going to read the first story because meeting it's characters has me wanting for more. Definite reading rec.


Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood’s new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn’t hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought. Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn’t walk away. When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities destroy their one chance to discover true happiness? When Declan’s past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead? It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do.
