  The title alone is very catchy and the reason why I gave this book a chance. This book was awesome sauce.  Like, I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and I enjoyed the characters Parker and Livy.  This is my first book from this author and I must say that I am glad that I took a chance because she is talented.  Characters, Parker and Livy, are high school sweethearts who breaks apart and four years later reunites again. Lies, secrets, and a pregnancy causes them to break apart.  This book goes back and forth between past and present to show the blossoming of their young love and the ultimate demise of their relationship.  The books starts out with Livy being a stripper and from there the book takes off.  She is called to dance for a  bachelor party and little does she know that the bachelor is Parker.  And guess who else is in attendance?  Her brother.  Yuck and that is very uncomfortable.  Her brother demands that she comes home with him and quit her job.  Forced to get back into the real world, Livy decides to work at Parker's friend tattoo and has no idea that Parker is part owner of the shop.

  Although I enjoyed this book, there were a couple of things that did not sit well with me. The relationship between Livy and Parker was a huge misunderstanding.  If they had simply had a conversation the events that took place would not have happened. Parker is Olivia's brother best friend and I expect a showdown between Parker and Mason, but all I got was a dud.  There is no explanation on how Livy turned to stripping and if she dropped out of college or not.  Livy basically gave up because of her failed relationship with Parker.  I liked Livy because she was funny, feisty, but she had no self-esteem and no back bone when it came to Parker and she allowed herself to sleep with someone else's man.  Not Cool, Livy. I liked Parker, but there was simply nothing else revealed about him.

  The ending was not my favorite thing about this story because it just ends.  There is no epilogue or an additional chapter telling me how their relationship worked out.  The ending was too abrupt for me and I needed closure.

  Besides these flaws, the story is solid and it kept me entertained with the heat and chemistry.  I do recommend this book for all of my second-chance romance lovers.
