Tara Park doesn’t do serious relationships. Neither does she hop into bed with virtual strangers. Especially when that particular stranger is her best friend’s new brother-in-law. It isn’t an easy decision, though. Seth Kim is temptation personified. His unreasonably handsome looks and charming personality makes him easy on the eyes and good for her ego.

When a friendly game of Truth or Dare leads to an uncomplicated four-date arrangement with Seth, Tara can’t say she minds. But their dates, while sweet and sexy, have a tendency to hit roadblocks. Thankfully, their non-dates and chance meetings get frequent and heated.

Seth is leaving for a new job in Paris in a month, and a no-strings attached fling seemed like a nice little distraction for both...but soon, Seth realizes that Tara Park doesn’t come in a "nice & little" package - she’s funny and bold, sweet and sexy, and everything he ever wanted and never expected to find. Neither of them are ready for something serious, and both have past relationship baggage they’ve been ignoring, but with a shot at forever on the line will they follow their hearts and take a chance on happily ever-after?

My Review:

This book is super cute.  As usual with this genre, you know where it's going - it's the journey that makes it fun. Tara and Seth have great chemistry and I enjoyed their banter. I did find it to be a bit cheesy in the beginning, but then it became so cute I looked past the cheese (but I mean, who doesn't love cheese!)... and then it ended way too cheesy for my taste. 🤣

What I did like a lot is how relatable the characters are - in all their glorious flaws.  Also, Lee just gave us the best #bookboyfriend.  Sigh.  Hi Seth, got a single brother anywhere? 😉 #askingforafriend

I don't have a lot to say because this book delivers exactly what you expect it to.  While it wasn't quite my glass of whiskey, it'll surely be your cup of tea.
