It was a simple offer.
I invited Isla to rent a room in my five thousand square foot home. Plenty of rooms and plenty of space. But the second she moved in, I knew I was in trouble. I could handle wanting her when there was distance between us, but once we started to play house, all my pent up desire started knocking down walls.
That was my first mistake of many.
The private investigator I hired to track down my ex found her not far from where I live. I should have locked my past behind me, but something urged me to find her. I’m glad I did. But our union left me with a situation to be reckoned with.
When a new fire is lit and old flames rekindle, one will have to burn out.
The decisions I’ll have to make won’t be easy.
No matter what I choose, my heart will break.

Note: This review contains NO spoilers
Okay... After some time to just absorb what happened in this book, I am just emotional about it...haha! Anyways, in this third book of the Knight Fashion series, the focus of this story is on Josh and Isla...of course, they are friends with Nathan and Olivia. You will find many crossovers of characters in the series since their "lives" are all so intertwined with each other. Well, that's what happens when they all work for the same company, in the same business...haha!
So... Their story opens well enough... after the second book, Sexiest Couple Alive, their friendship (and attraction) continues to grow. We get some "flashbacks" of past events of the first two books. I really liked that, especially when recalling those events, and giving me that moment of, "oh yeah!" LOL! Okay! All goes well enough then events from the past just had to catch up to them, in particular Josh.
I love M. Clarke's knack to tug at those "heart strings" that make her stories so emotional and heart wrenching. Her world building and character development throws you in a loop when these stories feel so real. Well, a lot of times, these contemporary stories do feel so real since people can relate in one way or another. But, overall, M. Clarke creates these deeply emotional rollercoaster ride of a romance that its soul of it all is that "love can conquer all." I am just glad that this time, I didn't get all teary eyed and blubbered like a romanctic idiot because I got so involved with these characters! LOL! But... How can you not fall in love with these stories of hers!
With each page turn, their lives developed in such a way that it was not hard to make the connections of the development of the storyline/theme. I look forward to the next chapter in the lives of these Knight Fashion models! Who's next? Hmmm... I think Emma should have her story....eventually...Haha!
Moreover, I would highly recommend reading the series in order: (1) Sexiest Man Alive, (2) Sexiest Couple Alive, (3) Sexiest Dad Alive. The Something Great series would also be a great series to read since this series is a spin-off, an extension, of that series! Just saying...
