Tour Organized by: Indie Sage, LLC
In their efforts to start a family, talented DC photographer Natasha Taylor and her professor husband have plunged headfirst into the stressful world of fertility treatments, scheduled sex, and IVF-induced debt. When an opportunity arises to sell a gallery left to Natasha by her late mother, Natasha hopes the sale could dig the couple out of financial ruin, give them one last shot at a baby, and save their crumbling marriage.
But when her husband walks out on her and doesn’t show up to her most important exhibit, an intense encounter with the alluring Nicholas Reyes—a once-famous photographer turned investor—leaves Natasha questioning everything she believed she wanted for her life.
Nicholas offers to buy the gallery…on one condition: Natasha must join him for a decadent weekend in Los Angeles, where he will give her the career opportunity of a lifetime and one unforgettable Hollywood night.
How harmless could one night be?
As it turns out, one night with the disarming Nicholas Reyes has the power to unravel Natasha’s tightly-wound world and awaken her in ways she never could have imagined.

Michelle’s Review: ♥♥♥ 1/2 hearts
I have said this before on several occassions I really am not a person who like shorter reads as in instalment series or novella’s but I do on the odd occassion read them. And I have to say that I am glad I read this book and none of the storyline was affected by it being only 89-ish pages long. It was delivered well and actually being that is was short, there simply is no waffle, it’s pertinent scening all the way through and perfectly constructed.
I quite enjoyed this sweet romance. I like Juliette’s writing style, it’s easy deliverance and chatty prose make for good reading. I did struggle a little with one element of the story line, I didn’t quite gel with the pyschic element. But that’s just me, I am not a person who has ever been into pyschics or any anything to do with reading people.
I loved the song reference in the book, Jesse Ware and Wildest Moment’s is one of my favourite songs and that made me smile to see it referred to. Natasha and Nicholas were fun to follow, I enjoyed the back story of Natasha and her mum and the reason the exhibition was set up. Nicholas was a perfect male specimen, wealthy, caring, understanding, physically fit and not scared to show his feelings and emotions. He’s a great character.
All in all this was a fun, sweet little romance read and this was a nice little introduction to Juliette’s writing and I will be checking out more of her books.
