What happens when the man you love falls in love with someone else?

Grief-stricken after the sudden loss of her beloved grandmother, an enduring but reclusive Hollywood icon, young Priscilla Bauer finds herself adrift and looking to find solace in the arms of her vast inheritance, when she meets the kind and considerate corporate brand designer, Michael Frost—a drop dead gorgeous beacon of light in her all too dark night.

Excerpt:

Walking into the bathroom, he went right up to the mirror and looked himself in the eye—and that’s when he knew.

It was already too late. Too late to try talking himself out of pursuing her. She had left him aching, craving much more of her company.

And although they had been together since high school, he didn’t feel this way about Amber—and now he could see that he never had. Raw and exciting passion was a definite first for Michael Frost.

But how did you break up with the girl you lived with? Did you just leave? And when would he tell her? Where would he go? And what if things didn’t work out with Priscilla Bauer—would he want to come back to Amber?

These questions strained him, but still they were no match for the unforgettable evening he’d had at Emerald Leas: The soulful music that had scored the occasion. The profound love she had clearly had for her grandmother. Her palpable grief. The formidable efforts she’d made to smile and graciously accept condolences from her guests.

Not to mention the unforgettable hours they had spent together in her bed.

Despite everything, Michael smiled ear-to-ear as he stepped into the shower reliving every moment. More than anything else in the world, he wanted to learn more about Priscilla Bauer and he wouldn’t let anything get in the way of that. The mere idea of seeing her again excited him and made him feel happier than he’d felt in years, since he was a young boy.

The pulsing hot water hitting his back felt amazing, almost therapeutic, so Michael stood under the spray longer than usual, allowing himself this time alone to think. He realized that he’d been feeling this change coming for over a year now—a vague unhappiness that meeting another woman had exposed, in high definition.

Review:

I will give the warning that this is one of those series where things don’t end – I’m guessing that you’ll need to read all three books in order to get the complete story.  And while I really liked Priscilla (she’s smart and interesting), I didn’t like Michael much at all.  He cheats on his long-term, live-in girlfriend and then waffles around on telling her … continuing to lead Priscilla on while he figures out a way to break things off with Amber.  Now, Amber does go off the deep end when she finally finds out and the things she does to keep Michael are a little scary, but he definitely doesn’t do much to redeem himself.  I can kinda understand how he got in the situation, but he should have manned up a lot earlier than he did. 

Black is a fabulous writer though and I kept turning pages until I was done (luckily it is a short book 🙂), so I’m curious where she goes from here.  Hopefully Michael will have a chance to become that better man that Priscilla deserves.
