Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.
This was just the kind of book I needed right now. Easy, fun read light on the drama and angst. Annika is recovering from a personal and professional disaster. Grayson is trying to keep his family afloat. Together they make a fabulous team, and the chemistry between them is fire.
This book is a wonderful little getaway from the real-life drama going on, and a fun behind-the-scenes look at the design and renovation shows we love to watch. Definitely get this second chance, one-that-got-away love story and escape to the world of 425 Madison for a couple hours.
I watch my best friend chew a hole in her lower lip. “Explain,
Abby. Before you make yourself bleed.”
Abby opens her mouth. I brace myself for whatever she’s
going to say and don’t hear a single word. I don’t hear anything at all, except the deep, rumbling
laugh that rolls through the soundstage.
My stomach does cartwheels and every single hair on the
back of my neck stands pin-straight. My anxiety before? It’s got nothing on the nerves that are
about to knock my knees right out from under me.
That laugh—his laugh… It’s as potent today as it was the first
time I heard it.
My eyelids flutter shut. All worries about first-day nerves and
my shitty ex-husband and career recovery vanish. Into that mental void rushes a series of
images, ones I’d mistakenly sworn, hoped, prayed, I’d forgotten.

Large calloused hands finding the secret, most sensitive parts
of my skin.
Lips made for sinning and promises whispered in a voice that
sounded like salvation. A voice that belongs to a man who vanished without a word.
A man who, if I’m reading my friend’s—no, strike that, former
friend’s expression correctly, has just claimed a starring role in the horrifically-timed comedy that
is my life.
Abby’s eyes dart between my face and the person behind me.
Plastering on a smile, she swivels her finger in what I’m assuming she thinks is the “turn around
now” sign. “Annika, this is Mr. Hesse.”
I pivot, thrust out my hand, but can’t unglue my eyes from the

As in the only man I’ve ever fallen for so hard, so fast, I didn’t
