Chelsea Callaghan wants nothing more than to just get this weekend over with, get her agenda done and get out of Dodge with as few scars as possible. Having to see Nathan again after all this time, plus having to see his whole family is not exactly what she would call a fun weekend for her but something that she must do to keep a dirty secret firmly hidden in her closet. But seeing her old flame brings so many more complications that Chelsea could have anticipated. Could giving into Nathan this one time mean that she is bound to get her heart broken all over again or will this be the do over that they needed to get the happily ever after they wanted so desperately.
Nathan is done waiting for Chelsea to come to him. After 8 years without her in his life, the time for action is now, and Nathan is willing to do every dirty trick in the book to make sure that Chelsea is his forever. Coming home to an empty house 8 years ago was not the welcome wagon that he anticipated, but something that he should have expected. Giving her the time and space to come back didn't work like he wanted, so this weekend she will be his or he will blow all her plans to heck. The one thing that Nathan didn't plan on was seeing Chelsea and getting all the old feelings coming back to him. She always has been his one and only, and it's about time that Chelsea saw that too.
Another home run of a story for Katee Robert. While this was a shorter story, Robert had no problem making sure her characters were well rounded and full to make sure the story really came to life for the reader. Nathan and Chelsea's story was perfect. Both of these characters are flawed and yet are just right for each other. Life tries to get in the way of what is supposed to be an easy ending, and that just made the story that much better. I have loved all the books that Katee Robert has put out and this one has not disappointed in the least.
Eight years ago, former Army sergeant Nathan Schultz let the love of his life disappear without a fight. After watching everyone around him find happiness while his slipped further away, he’s finally ready to fight for Chelsea Callaghan—and he’s not afraid to play dirty.
Chelsea has always followed her conservative family’s rules—with one heartbreaking exception. When she receives an invitation to an old high school friend’s wedding, she knows who’s to blame. Though she goes solely to give Nathan a piece of her mind, he blackmails her into staying the entire week. With him.
There’s no way she’ll bow to Nathan’s will without making him pay. Unfortunately, revenge is a dish best served fully clothed, and they can’t be in the same room without losing theirs. As insatiable, anger-fueled lust shifts into something more, they begin to lose sight of why they can’t be together. But with so many unforgivable wrongs between them, can Nathan and Chelsea ever make things right?
