Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she's made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.
Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family's banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine--even her name turns him on--with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.
When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?
This book was definitely NOT what I expected. When I say that I didn’t know what to expect, I spent the first couple of paragraphs thinking Cath was some sorta of thief. I kept picturing The Thomas Crown Affair. That's not the case at all. Something has happened to her in life. It turns out that not everything she’s done has actually been bad or stupid on her part.
Nev is a twenty-eight-year-old who has yet to really stand up to his family and to a certain extent cut the umbilical cord. Nev is from old money and a family who doesn’t deserve him. Nev (the working man) and his family are all stiff and cold. Nev (the real man) is actually fun, laid back, and interesting.
This book is definitely worth a read.
