her off guard. I reach out to steady her, and my hand lingers on her shoulder,

her senseless as much as I want to turn around and leave. Memories from
Christmas flood back. I don’t know what’s going on between us. I had
said the words to her on Christmas Day and yet, they ring true now.

fists. My fingers itch to wrap in her hair, my mouth begs to cover hers. Hell
yes, I want her. But I respect her too bloody much to make her one more girl in
my long list of one-night stands. Besides the obvious reasons why Daisy and I
shouldn’t hook up – we now work together and she’s Sierra’s best friend – she’s
also younger, more impressionable, and idealistic. I’m not the man for her, and
I never will be, which is why I force myself to lean forward and brush a casual
kiss across her cheek. “Make sure you lock the door behind me.”

Daisy Kane moves to Scotland after graduating college, leaving her family behind, to start a job working at her best friends family’s PR business. It all sounds great except for one thing – Finn Anderson.
Daisy has a massive crush on Finn, and on Christmas, Finn kissed Daisy and walked away, leaving Daisy confused.
Daisy was a cool chick, and I loved her family. I feel that you needed to read the other books in the series to know what happened at the beginning of the book.
Finn, with his Scottish accent, was quite swoon worthy. He had some self doubt where Daisy was concerned. He had been in a relationship that scarred him badly and he didn’t want another relationship. Even with Daisy, whom he clearly wanted.
The chemistry between Finn and Daisy was off the charts. This was overall a good read. I just wish I had read the other books in the series first.
I would recommend.
