I'm cursed. Yes, you read that right and this isn't some paranormal fantasy. This is my real life. Karma was lashed out on me. I'll never find my true love and I'm learning to accept that. The only problem is, he isn't. He's starting a war with karma and everyone knows karma always fights back. 

GABBY: What's worse than being forced to intern at a PR firm owned by a family that despises you? Running into him. The one guy I'd been trying to avoid for six months. The guy I'd drunkenly given my virginity away to. How was I supposed to fix other people's problems when I couldn't even manage to handle my own? 

DALTON: She was destroying everything I'd worked my ass off for. She climbed her way into my thoughts, threw her bags down and I couldn't find the strength to evict her. I was fighting to keep her but if she found out my secret, she'd go back to believing love didn't exist for her. My secret would ruin us.

My Review

Meet Gabby, the 18-year-old beauty who truly believes that Karma is out to get her and ruin her love life. Gabby believes that since her mother was the “other” woman breaking up a marriage that she is now cursed as a result. Having had a series of relationships ending in nothing but heartache and misery she believes karma has basically deemed her unlovable. Gabby has since sworn of the male species, and is determined to avoid the chance of getting close to any man and has erected huge walls around her heart.

But it just so happens Gabby’s wall may not be so impenetrable after all. After being forced to attend a New Year’s party hosted by her new family (who pretty much see her and her mom as home wreckers) Gabby finds herself-drunk, lonely and making her way to the room of super hottie Dalton Douglas, her step cousin. Where Gabby proceeds with her decision that it’s time to hand in her V-card!

 From here we are witness to page sizzling, and honestly such a vividly written sexual encounter that I was instantly hooked on, and excited to read this book. I love when books open with hot and steamy sex! Now remember there are step cousins, so no blood relation, so all is a-okay!

Of course Gabby freaks out and bails on sexy Dalton leaving him to wake up on his own. From here she manages to ignore him for the next 6 months. Until they meet up again unexpectedly for their summer jobs at their families jointly owned PR firm.

Awkward! Here we start to see that Dalton has definitely not forgotten or forgiven Gabby and he is determined to win her over.  Loved the duel POV, especially getting to hear all the hot and dirty things Dalton was thinking about Gabby and his intentions with her. Man, does this boy have some of the best Alpha moments that are sure to make a girl blush!

The story is basically Dalton persuading and repeatedly trying to convince Gabby to give them a shot despite her belief of the Karma curse. They end up having to be partners on an important case and obviously can’t help but grown closer and closer. I loved seeing Gabby’s walls crumble and her finally giving into her feelings.

But of course things can’t go so smoothly and there has to be a ton of shit that Gabby has to face in order to find her happiness. Turns out there are some big secrets she isn’t aware off that completely blindside her. The ending killed me and I wasn’t expecting there to be a cliffy! I’m chomping at the bit to see what the hell is going to happen!!

There is a ton of witty banter; sexual tension and some very very smoking hot scenes that I was kept engaged the whole time. I will say that I didn’t read the first book, so there were times where I may have lacked background info, but it can definitely be read as a standalone.

★★☆ 4 Stars ☆★★
