He likes whiskey and wild women
She likes Ben & Jerry’s

A lot of unresolved issues
A whole bunch of shared lifetimes
And a love that is never-ending

And keeping that truth from them may just be in preeminent psychiatrist Dr. Claire Stoddard’s best interests.

Her patient, Jesse Winslow.
And she’s not about to lose him to Kylie Martin… Again.

I finished this book in the early hours of the morning and I don’t have enough words to describe how I felt. At one point did I feel like messaging the author, get down on my knees and beg her to “Please, please, please for the love of mercy, give Kylie and Jesse a break!”
This is probably one of the most difficult reviews I have to write only because there are not a lot of details I can share as I don’t want to give away any spoilers. This book is a standalone contemporary romance (with an unusual twist) about two people who both needed help and found each other. Written in alternating “past” and present scenarios Kylie is a former beauty queen who became a plus size princess and Jesse is a rock star on a downward slope to hell. They are both patients of Dr. Claire Stoddard, who plays a big part in their healing and is the catalyst to the couple’s future happiness. What I like about the author is that she also created Kylie as a strong, beautiful and independent woman who tackles weight issues that a lot of us can relate to. And Jesse, oh how I would love to have my own Jesse!
“I have let you into a place so deep, that it is dangerous. It is dangerous to feel what I feel. And I know that you know that. No one else is getting to that place besides you. And there’s only room for you as long as you choose to remain there.”
Serendipity, fate, destiny or whatever you call it Kylie and Jesse were always meant to be together. This book is not only about meeting your soulmate and finding “the one”. When you read their story, you not only get romance but also a feeling of empowerment. Jesse and Kylie’s story elicits a myriad of emotions: everlasting love, despair, heartbreak and hope. Will they finally get their happily ever after? I would have given the book five stars but there is one question which I think should have been addressed regarding Claire’s actions. Highly recommended but I would suggest a box of tissues by your side.
‘But right now, all I’ve got are memories trapped in time
Of that moment when you were still mine
I’ll keep reaching and reaching and reaching
To grab hold of our love on the edge of time.’
This time he didn’t text. He just called, waking her at two-fifteen a.m.
“Bare-ly dressed again tonight?”
Her laugh, filled with sleep was gruff. “Barely dressed every night.”
“What exactly do you have on?”
“A pink tank top and pink silk bikini.”
“Take them off,” he ordered.
“Excuse me,” there was an element of surprise in Kylie’s voice.
“You heard me. Take them off. Now.” Just hearing rustling on the other end of the line, he could feel his cock stiffen and it felt damn good after all this time. Baby, I’m back, he thought.
“We’re having phone sex? But, Jesse, we haven’t even kissed yet,” her protest was weak. And even she knew it.
“Yes, we’re having phone sex, and when I get back to New York, we’re going to do a lot more than kiss. You’ve friend-zoned me, Toots, and I’m busting out.”
Kylie was smiling on her end of the phone. Friend-zoned Jesse Fucking Winslow? Was he serious? “Nobody puts Jesse in a friend-zone,” she couldn’t help herself.
“Are they off?” He totally ignored her joke.
“What was that?” he asked, his voice gruff and serious.
“Yes, they’re off.”
“Okay, spread your legs, and with your phone, take a picture of your pussy for me.”
“Seriously?” She knew she was blushing in the dark.
“Take the picture, Kylie.”
“Okay, but if you sell this to the paparazzi, I will kill you.” There was a rustling sound, then, “Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’m doing this.”
“Okay, here it comes. I hope it’s photogenic. It would be really embarrassing to have a non-photogenic pussy.”
Pulling the phone from his ear to look, Kylie could hear his moan, exciting her even more.
“So photogenic, Toots, just like the rest of you. And I love the red landing strip. It’s so hot. Oh, man, I love this. Spread your legs wider and use one hand to spread your lips open for me and send me another.”
Following his directions, she did as he requested.
