Everything feels safe, from her boring starter job to her tiny, depressing apartment--that is, until she meets Evan, the coworker who pokes all of her buttons in all of the right ways.

In this new adult romance, Dani is content in her safe relationship with her boyfriend Drew and is happy to accept a job at his father's company. But when she finds out her co-worker Evan is none other than the handsome guy who seems to catch her at her most embarrassing moments, including an unceremonial dumping by the man she thought she'd end up marrying, she wishes she could do anything to avoid him. The fact that he sparks strong reactions in her scares her as she doesn't like to do things that take her out of her comfort zone. But being with Evan brings out more than just fear, and as they spend time together, she realizes that their unorthodox friendship could be the start of something even better, if she'd just let go and let live a little. I really enjoyed this story. I thought it was a very realistic portrayal of a young woman in an uncertain relationship to start (one with boomerang potential), with a new job and an attraction to a co-worker that she doesn't want. It's told in her voice from first person point of view, and she sometimes comes across as cold and sarcastic (and she knows it) which are really fronts for a deep grief she feels from the loss of her father, the loss that taught her that it's safer to stay closed off then to risk real emotions in a relationship. While her relationship with her boyfriend deteriorates fairly quickly into the story (there is no cheating) it's her increasing attraction to Evan who alternately frustrates and entices her that makes her question everything about her life. Evan comes across as a fun, friendly, sweet and patient guy. The development of their friendship and eventual relationship moved at a smooth pace and led to some steamy scenes between them. There is a bit of angst but it's minimal, and the end is a satisfying happy one for the couple. And I loved having the epilogue from Evan's point of view! 4 stars.
