Blurb from Goodreads

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

My Review

Tate meets Miles, her brothers best pal, Tate has moved across the way and Miles is a current feature, the two are instantly attracted to each other. Thing is Tate is a girl who totally wants the whole love/9 yards, Miles absolutely does not do nor want love. He is very attracted to Tate and he would never disrespect his friend or sister but the attraction is too much too ignore. How can two people wanting the same but opposite things, keep their "relationship" a secret and not hurt each other because neither can give what the other wants.

So the book goes between two timelines, the now with Tate and Miles and the past where we get snippets of what happened to Miles for him to be so adverse to love and the concept of relationships/love. I got a bit twitchy, we know they are bootie calls (some graphic scenes) but the way Miles treats Tate at times I was like come on!

The book covers some sad/emotive topics and if you have read Hoover before you know she touches on some dark themes. I found some of it really good and absolutely wanted to get to the bottom of why Miles was the way he was. Sometimes I wanted to deck him, sometimes I wanted to hug him, Tate really got me wound up, doormat, where is the self respect, girl come on! The stuff that annoyed me really annoyed me but I was interested in seeing what was coming next for them. For all of that its a 3/5 for me.
