    Shandi Fossey works as a bartender at Hush in the evenings but is a student at the Fashion Institute with the goal of being a makeup artist during the day She overcame difficult odds and an unsupportive family to come to the city and live her dream so she has something to prove She meets famous record producer uentin Marks someone who also overcame those odds and still managed to be a success They have some serious attraction and flirtation going on uentin is intrigued by her optimism and her drive and wants than just sexbut he isn't uite sure of what exactly Shandi knows this can only be a fling since uentin has plans to open a studio in Austin TX and her life is in New York As the fling continues it becomes but the future potential hasn't changed now they're just setting themselves up for heartbreak unless they can find a compromise that allows them to be togetherThis is overall a pretty fun and sexy story I loved the chemistry and the emotional buildup between uentin and Shandi Despite only knowing each other a short time their chemistry and interactions were such that I had no trouble believing their fall into loveit felt uite natural and well done And their repartee was very sexy I also liked that these people felt real not like charicatures or anything uentin found success only to become a cynical bastard while Shandi has a family waiting for her to fail which spurs her to work even harder and prove she can accomplish her dreams on her own Nothing in this felt contrived apart maybe from their epic struggle to be together in the face of their separate dreams And in regards to these separate dreams all I can say is Compromise shmompromise That was my struggle with this storywell that and the completely pointless Evan and April secondary plotline but I could get over that Except how do two friends agree on a decision for their own life that effectively screws over the third without at least discussing it with the third friend and still call themselves friends? I digress Back to the compromise or lack thereof It seemed an impossible situation Shandi's life and future involves a degree from a New York Fashion Institute and making her way as a makeup artist while uentin's sanity depends on his moving back to his hometown of Austin and being a low key record producer there So how can they be together? Something has to give And in this case it's entirely Shandi's goals It bugged me to no end that uentin kept holding Shandi's willingness to set aside her goals as some sort of proof of her love for him But what did he sacrifice? Absolutely nothing So what was his proof? I mean couldn't uentin be willing to put his plans on hold and relocate to New York for the year it would take Shandi to finish her schooling and then they could move to Austin together? Why should Shandi have to uit school with the possibility of going back in the vague future leave her friends and move to Austin to adjust her values in using uentin's connections to take the shortcut he offers and she's uncomfortable using? I hated that he gave up nothing to be with her though I did honestly believe in his feelings for her So it was the ending that messed this story up for me the rest of it was really good

    It was a uick fun read the hotel was a bit gimicky but not too much Definitely erotica rather than romance exactly what you'd expect I don't particularly think the aprilevan thing added much I could definitely have lost that subplot

    Good book esp if you're looking for steamy think porno in words Too bad once the characters fell in love instead of lust that the author cut back on the sex and the descriptions Still if you're looking for a book that will get you in the mood this is it

    I don't knowsometimes I really enjoyed the characters but most of the time I spent not really knowing what to make of them It just felt like a strange relationship and sometimes things were so contradictory Not my fave

    I tried really hard to like this since I'd liked another story in this series But this just dragged for me and felt endless And not in a good way

    I liked Shandi and uentin Their attraction felt real and together they were hotI didn't like the Evan and April side story What was the point in that? The ending felt a bit rushed
