About the Book (from Amazon):
After a devestating break up with her cheating fiance, Savannah Summers delves into her work as the Assistant to the VP of Production in a marketing/production company. Finding refuge in work and her best friends, Savannah finally decides to try her hand at love one more time. Wanting more than ever to close the wounds of lost love and against her better judgment, she falls for Kevin Styles. This time around she vows to not give her whole self as before and keep her heart closer and guarded more than ever before.

Kevin Styles, a smooth, handsome Meteorologist at a local news station is somewhat a local celebrity in his own right. When it comes to women and playing the field, he holds all the cards. Being suave, having the right timing and patience is his forte and he is just the man to wine and dine her. However, a known player to his heart and in his not so distant past, he's looking for the right woman to tame his wild player ways.

Just when things are going perfect, Naomi Sanders, a blast from Kevin's past hits the scene. Naomi, now a revamped diva and budding actress, creates an entry into Kevin’s life and bed, reigniting a first unwanted and secret rendezvous that threatens his budding relationship with Savannah. For a short while, Kevin delights in having his cake and eating it too until Naomi decides that she wants more. Spurned, Naomi stops at nothing to stake her claim on what was once hers, bringing lies, destruction, and deceit, even if it means death. Naomi is bent on a sweet revenge targeted at anyone that lies within her path. Shattered trust and betrayal is inevitable. Can Kevin and Savannahs’ relationship withstand Naomi's tactics?

My Review:
Shawna Hill asked me if I would review her books, and I am so glad she did!  Have you ever read her books before?  If you haven't, you really should!  If she hadn't contacted me, I would have really missed out on reading her awesome work!

Savannah and Kevin seemed so right for each other.  There was just a feeling that Savannah had though that kept coming up. She just felt like something wasn't quite right.  She wasn't the only one that saw it either, but she wanted to make things work.  Yeah...about Kevin....he had someone from his past try to get back with him--Naomi.  He just couldn't decide between Savannah (the good girl) or Naomi (the freak).  He wanted both of them, but finally he made his decision. The woman he let go wasn't going to let go so easy though.   

Kevin made me so mad sometimes.  I just wanted to tell him to stop with all of the women.  Just settle down with one and be happy.  When you are reading a book like this you just want to tell the characters, come on, don't you see what is going on.  Naomi...I don't even want to talk about her.  You have to read the book to see for yourself who she is!

I highly recommend this book!  I was just so impressed by this first book from Shawna Hill!  I can definitely say that it was a page turner and kept my interest thoughout the whole book. You will not be bored at all when you read this! At the end though I was like what, that's the end!  It definitely left me on the edge of my seat and ready to get started on the next book Intimate Illusions, which I will be reviewing tomorrow!  

  My Rating: 5/5 diamonds
Loved it and recommend!

I will also be interviewing Shawna Hill, so check back for that!
