Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she’s made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.
Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family’s banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine—even her name turns him on—with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.
When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?
Bad girl turned good, Cath Talarico, tries to forget her past by keeping her head low and focus on her job. She creates rules that, if followed, are supposed to keep her from heartbreak. When she breaks one of those rules, she wakes up and finds Nev, a man from the subway that she has nicknamed City based on her observations of him. As Nev tries to get closer to Cath, she struggles to recreate her walls to protect herself. Nev has his own struggles as his job is not where his passions lie and his family attempts to control him and his future.
This was a nice read for a stress-free afternoon. It is engaging enough to draw you and fluffy enough to allow you to forget your worries. There are a few things that sets this one apart though. First, Cath's past is not at all predictable nor is it something you see that often. Second, Nev is a businessman and he hates it. He likes to paint. There are some predictable premises that you find often in romance novels but only those that make them more enjoyable to read. I thought Cath was a little extreme with her avoidance of Nev. And the Nev's museum was a little too convenient. But overall, this was a nice--though a tad forgettable--read.
