Leaving work behind wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, though.

That was until she walked up to me at the bar.

After a night of unbridled passion, I discover...she’s the maid of honor in Jameson’s wedding.

Raylynn gives me a once over then bursts into laughter.
I look down to see what’s so funny and nearly lose it.
Son of a bitch.
There’s a huge white spot on the crotch of my shorts. It doesn’t help that I’m hard as a rock too, because of what she’s wearing.
“I didn’t mean to interrupt. You could have said you were busy.”
“Funny. Get the hell in here so I can get these off,” I grunt.
She steps inside my apartment and looks around. “Nice place.”
“Thanks. I’ll be right back.” I dart toward the bedroom. “It’s paint by the way,” I call over my shoulder before shutting the door.
Last goddamn time I go paintballing with Jameson and Liam too.
“That’s what they all say,” she yells back.
When I come out, I’m dressed in a nice pair of jeans and a polo shirt. Raylynn gives me a whistle and motions for me to spin around.
“Forget it. You’re not objectifying me.” I grin. “And that paint. Ask Jameson what happened.”
She holds up her hands and snickers. “I’ll pass, but thanks.”
“You good to walk in those?” I point to her shoes. “We’ll need to take the subway.”
“These old things?” Raylynn lifts a foot. “I could run laps in these.”
“We’re not running laps, but I’ll take your word for it.”
She reaches for my shoulders and starts massaging the muscles. “Aww, you’re tense. Are you in a mood?”
I’m tense because she’s standing in my apartment looking like a whole damn snack, and I know nothing is going to happen besides a few drinks.
“Sweetheart, the only mood I’m in is the mood to get out of this apartment for a while,” I lie.
“Well then , let’s get the fuck out of here!” she cheers. “Ooo. Wait a minute. Harley Wagner , are you wearing a gun or are you happy to see me?”
“Christ, I’m tense, and you’re in a really good mood.”
“Seriously, are you wearing your gun?” I sigh and slip my keys into my front pocket. “Yes, Raylynn. I’m packing heat.”
“Well, that I knew.”

Review: I kinda feel bad that this book didn't do it for me.

I enjoyed Raylynn and Harley's story up to a point. When they were in Hawaii with the hook up and then the discovery that they were in the same wedding party, the story was fantastic. The chemistry between the two was office the charts. I even liked the set up for Raylynn to have the one night fling, but then they went back to their regular lives and that's where the story got spoiled for me.

It took a smoking hot story and just dosed it with a bucket of water.

An ex that was cheating but just had to have her? Enough that he was trying to ruin her life? I needed more for story for this to work for me. And for what happened in the end? It felt too much like something tossed in for good measure to make sure Harley and Raylynn had some good drama to close things out. Things needed to be more fleshed out with Sawyer for this to work, at least for me and he wasn't even a character in the story for the most part. He was mostly a brief mention at the beginning and truthfully, I never expected to hear from him again.

This is probably the only book in this series of 425 Madison that I didn't really love.
