6:46 AMAlma Lopez


Reagan Larson has been dealt her fair share of tragedy, but each time she has come out on top. Her heart is callused, but she still has hope. She may be the last one of her sorority sisters to still be single, but she knows Mr. Right is out there. Reagan is ready to move forward with her life when the time is right, or so she thinks, unfortunately when love is staring her straight in the face she keeps finding ways to hide from it.

The last thing Cole Conrad is looking for is commitment. He is set in his bachelor ways and has no intentions of leaving them. Having any woman he desires at his fingertips is how he has always lived. Cole is used to playing by his rules, until he meets Reagan Larson, and for the first time -after what had to have been one of his most fulfilling evenings with a woman- he wakes up feeling alone and used.


One night stand turned instant connection. This was a nice light read, which I needed after my last deep emotionally charged books that I am still feeling hungover from. Cole was a very delectable treat indeed.This was a delightful debut novel for K.S. Smith. The best part of the book for me was the beginning with the  bachelorette party for her best friend Addison, where she meets Cole, her mysterious sex on a stick.

Reagan and her girlfriends set off on a night of debauchery at a V.I.P. room in a club for Addison's bachelorette party. When she goes down to the main club for some more alcohol, she runs into her sexy stranger. She instantly gets hot and bothered by him and it seems he has an interest in her as well. She tries to keep her distant and ends up deviously putting 4 bottles of $500 tequila on his tab. That will definitely leave a lasting impression he surely won't forget. Reagan and her gaggle of friends end up staying in the same hotel as mystery man...what a delightful coincidence. After she spends a wild sex filled night with him in his hotel suite, she wakes up in immediate distress and bolts out of there as if her hair is on fire...no ta ta or handshake good bye. A wham, bam, thank you ma'am if you will. He never calls or texts her afterwards, which makes her all huffy and puffy, despite her being the one to leave him high and dry.

Reagan continues to go about her life trying not to spend all her spare time thinking about Cole. The upcoming wedding of her friends Addison and Casey has been keeping her busy. She is tasked to pick up Casey's best man's (Colton) parents from the airport, who she's never met by the way. When they get to the reherseal dinner, she finally meets Colton, who's parents haven't been able to stop yapping about the whole trip from the airport. Well, well, well, guess who Colton ends up being? Yup you guessed it...Cole! 

After reconnecting, they finally go out and start off their heated relationship. Cole is just such a charmer, that it is hard to believe that he is a reformed playboy. Reagan and Cole hit it off and kind of fell in insta-love. I have read many books where the characters fall in love quite quickly, so it's not that I am opposed to it. I just didn't feel a deep enough connection with the characters to make the insta-love feel realistic to me. The other thing that discouraged me from giving it a higher rating was the break-up after the misunderstanding/betrayal that was a bit predictable. Overly friendly assistant+hot stud+typical caught in a lip lock that was an obvious misunderstanding to everyone but Reagan= over dramatic bail that leads to crushing break up. These are just small hiccups, however, and can be easily over-looked in the bigger picture. Even though the inevitable reconnection of Reagan and Cole was brought on by Cole getting into a horrible accident, it was still a sweet heart melting reunion. It took the accident for her to finally listen to his explanation. Cole was so understanding of her feelings, and was just overwhelmingly happy to have her back in his life.

"Well, ma'am, you see that beautiful young lady over there," he nodded his head in my direction as I blushed, not even able to imagine what was going to come out of his mouth next, "it's been awhile since I've laid my lips on her mouth, and well to be quite honest with you, I wasn't going to give her a half ass kiss, because I'm cooped up in this damn bed. So that machine you're referring to is only screaming, because that's what happens to my heart every time I kiss her."- Cole

Despite the small mental hurtles I had to overcome, I still enjoyed this story, particularly Cole. I had such an overpowering need to do the girlfriend-slap-the hell-out if-it-and-open-your-eyes-smack down to Reagan. The story has a great reciepe, just perhaps needed some bolder favors to spice it up. I had no problem feeling the heat from Cole, however. Hawt and swoony...check and check! If you are looking for a light hot read, look no further. I would definitely read more from this author in the future.
