Milla McKool has been dumped by her French boyfriend after five years, losing her chance at love, her rising star status as an executive chef, and Paris. Back in NYC, she’s stuck with a dead end job, an amaretto addiction to make herself sleep at night, and a decidedly jaundiced view of all mankind. The only cure, according to her best friend, is to get back out there.
Hunter Rossdale has been stuck in neutral for even longer. The handsome, successful investment banker meets his match in Milla, a woman who no longer believes in happy-ever-after. She’s just looking for happy-for-now. Hunter doesn’t know what’s hit him but he’s interested. What man hasn’t dreamed of a sexy woman who’s after him just for sex, no strings attached? But along with some dubious help from Hunter’s brother—a workaholic physician with his own romance woes—Milla’s sous-chef, who has no moral compass to speak of, and a nymphomaniac Russian psychic, the couple finds love isn’t always predictable. Sometimes your destiny is waiting.

I was given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I really liked this book. The character of Milla was easy to identify with and I found myself rooting for her the entire book! I truly felt for her and everything she was going through. No one woman should ever feel the way she felt in the beginning of this book; it's an awful way to live your life.
Hunter was so loveable and I adored him. I don't agree with his friendship with Ivy however, as she was constantly using him and taking advantage of his feelings for her. Not cool at all!!! He was such a good guy, always there for his family and friends, even when he didn't want to be. Not only is a good guy but he's good looking, had a good job and doesn't freak out over nothing. How can anyone not fall for such a well rounded character?
Jake. Jake. Jake. I want a book about Jake! I loved his humor and definitely want to read more about him. We need more information about him, we only got glimpses of him in this book and I would love to know what makes his crazy mind tick.
This book was a great read and made me go through so many emotions - anger, sadness, laughter, happiness; it had it all! Great story from start to finish.
