All woman will tell you that attending an event of any kind alone is always embarrassing. You feel every one staring at you, and in the end for most of the time you don't even attend at all if you cannot find that vital piece of arm-candy.
For Emma this is so not the case, she has an arrangement with the very hotter than hot Dan. He's her hero whenever she needs him to be, perfect ! But lusting after him in secret was never part of the plan yet she goes with the flow and just let's it be.
Dan has always been cool with the arrangement, it's all for fun, but then suddenly Emma calls off the arrangement and he feels just a little more than annoyed.
So when she begs him for one last time to be her knight in shining armor or rather the drowned moron that needs to slick off without the girl, he decides he has to grab the chance to prove to Emma he is worth keeping around.
I loved, loved, loved this book! It was heartfelt, emotional and so awesome. The characters had fire and passion that made the read so intense it completely blew me away. The character of Dan was yes a bit of an ass, but with good reason. He can see Emma is hiding in the shadows but cannot get her to crawl out from it, and this of course drives him mad.
It reminded me that in real life we all do the very same, we think we are out in the open for all the world to see and when we see someone not taking the chance to act on something we want to tell them how to do it. But we don't stop to think that the person has a very good reason for what they are doing. This makes us mad but also completely blind and let's us look past our own failures in life.
The character of Emma was super fun to read ! I enjoyed her nutty family and her always acting as best she can to "hide " them and their antics. I loved how the author used Dan to bring out the real Emma from the shadows and let's her blossom into this stunning real woman.
I am taking away a message of when we find a person who challenges us to be the real person you know you can be, don't push them away. It will be a long and hard road to happiness but it will be worth it.
I recommend this read for all fans of the HK line. The read was fun, romantic and so very sexy!
