“Bad choices make epic stories. Write one with me.”

Iverson Grey wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after.
He wasn’t even on my radar.

I came to Copper Falls, expecting to settle my sister’s estate and learn about the woman I never knew existed until I was notified of her death. Little did I know that stories about her weren’t the only thing that awaited me in the small town.

The first time I met the enigmatic Iverson Grey, my car broke down on the side of the road. The second time, he spilled his coffee on me, and by the third, I was letting him have his way with me behind a bar. It was only supposed to be one time, a quick summer hookup in a town I was passing through with a man I’d never see again.

But a week after arriving at the Blackthorn Estate, a twist of fate reveals the home I thought was my sister’s belonged to the one man I haven’t been able to forget. Our chemistry is intense, all-consuming, and utterly wrong.

He was my dead sister’s ex—forbidden.

However, the more time we’re forced to spend together, the more I discover nothing is what it seems. The lines between right and wrong get blurry, and not all perfect endings are black and white. Sometimes, they’re grey, and somewhere in the grey lies the truth, and when it comes out, there’s no predicting the ending.


Some people believe their destiny is written in the stars. I believe it’s written on our hearts, and I’m pretty sure the one inside you holds mine.”

This story took me completely by surprise. The author definitely knew what she was doing when she wrote that blurb and that is all I will say on that.

I place a soft kiss on her lips before saying, “Bad choices make epic stories. Write one with me.”

As a reader who is forever in my walking red flag era, it’s not often I fall for a total cinnamon roll. But Iverson Grey was impossible not to fall for. And while Quinn took me a minute to warm up to, she quickly grew on me.

Quinn comes to the small town of Copper Falls to settle a family estate for a sister she didn’t even know she had. Raised by a single mom, Quinn is shocked to find out she has a sister she knew nothing about. And she’s even more shocked to learn about it because her sister’s mysterious death named her as her next of kin. She plans on this being a quick in and out and has no plans on staying. So the handsome stranger that saved her broken down on the side of the road and is determined to make their passionate one night into something more is the last thing she needs.

While their push and pull would have bothered me in any other book, it just worked for me here. I loved Quinn’s fierce independence. And when I learned more about her past and the relationships that made her, I understood it that much more. But boy did I love the way that Grey pursues her. The man is determined to break down her every defense and he’s not above using his filthy mouth to get her closer. And oh my god his filthy mouth. The man may be a sweet cinnamon roll but he was a beast in the bedroom. *heart eyes*

The story has a mystery element to it which kept me turning the pages. It’s hard to take this reader by surprise, but this story totally blew me away. I didn’t see any of the twists and turns coming. As a matter of fact, I thought it was one thing and it couldn’t be further from it. And I love when a book can take me by surprise like that.

There’s intriguing secondary characters that just added a little sprinkle of more to the already satisfying story. The steam was steaming and the suspense was the perfect addition. If you love a steamy small town romance with a splash of reverse grumpy sunshine, tortured characters, and a page turner of a story, this one is sure to hit the spot!
