My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sex and the City comes to mind. But that by no means is a bad thing. Natalie is a once bitten, twice shy kind of gal. When you've been badly hurt, you find it hard to trust again and when Colin comes back into her life its something she is not prepared for emotionally.
Colin has a hidden past. It all unravels very well throughout this book.
I loved the authors style of writing, and can't wait to read the 2nd book in this series.
Its not a long book, so read this within 2 hours which was great for me as I had a few hours to relax.
ADULT/ADULT CROSSOVER ROMANTIC COMEDY NOVELLA **Warning: contains sexual situations (some quite vivid!), profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and there is a lot of appletini and beer drinking. May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prudes and killjoys with no sense of humor** (i)Would you take another shot at love? Or just settle on a friend with benefits? (/i) Their heartbreaking past will move you. Their passion will make you blush. Their antics will make you laugh out loud. Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general. So when Colin Hampton crosses her path, she's cautious. Her heart (and some other body parts!) nudges her to go for it, while her head wants her to run for the hills. Colin is one of those gorgeous guys who attract women, no matter the age or marital status. With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him-maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse. Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did? Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself? Or will they settle somewhere in the middle-establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love? **Almost Matched is the first installment in the Almost Bad Boys series. The books in this series should be read in order. They are not stand-alone books** (b)Almost Matched contains a BONUS EXCERPT from Almost Broken Up, the second installment in the Almost Bad Boys series.
