My Review 

This was a great little romance story with an element of mystery thrown in.

The story is about Trace and Vanessa. Trace lose's a bet a has to have a 'vanilla relationship' with a woman. Trace has to be a character who is so full of himself and gives off that cocky vibe. In the complete opposite Vanessa is a kind and kind of shy women. It was told from both of their POV which I think always tends to add to the story. There are some great witty lines in  this one and some good banter. 

I read it in one sitting as it's fairly short. For me at times I got a little confused with the plot is seems a little disjointed but it didn't take that much from my reading enjoyment and if you are looking for a light hearted read one afternoon then this is the book for you.
