He asks her to stay another night or two but she refuses. They make up stories about who they are and what they do for a living, they speak to each other in French and German.

He is pissed off about losing the number of his “wife”, but still goes to New York the next weekend. He sits in a bar, staring out at the street hoping to somehow see the woman that has taken over his mind all week.

Five years later Ashley and her four year old son Owen move to a new town.

Her ex fiancée having left her and stopped visitations with Owen, so she is exited to start a new life. She wants a part time job at a nightclub to make ends meet. She finds that she is working at the same hospital as the man she met in Vegas and they still have explosive chemistry.
The book is told in dual points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Elena Wolfe and Stephen Dexter. I love both of these narrators, Stephen does a fine Aussie accent and Elena has an age appropriate voice and sounds intelligent and feminine. I just loved the sexual tension in this book. It was so hot! The steamy parts were off the charts, hands down the hottest scenes I have ever read.
I know I have said this before, but I just love T.L. Swan’s ability to have a book about a romantic relationship between two people that spans over 700 pages (18 ½ hours of audio) and not have the story be boring or repetitive. There isn’t really any side storylines other that the quirks and hang-ups of the main two characters. It is just them figuring out their relationship and there is some fun along the way. Cam is quite the dirty talker, he and Ash are into role playing which is great. The supporting characters are terrific as well.
