As Stiletto magazine’s authority on all things breakup-and-heartache, Emma Sinclair writes from personal experience. Five years ago, Emma was Charlotte, North Carolina’s darling debutante and a blushing bride-to-be. Now she’s the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene. Emma left her sultry Southern drawl behind, but not even her closest friends know that with it she left her heart. Now Emma’s latest article forces her to face her demons—namely, the devilishly sexy guy who ditched her at the altar.
After giving up everything for a pro-soccer career, Alex Cassidy watches his dreams crumble as a knee injury sidelines him for good. Now he’s hanging up his cleats and giving journalism a shot. It’s just a coincidence that he happens to pick a job in the same field, and the same city, as his former fiancée . . . right? But when Emma moves in next door, it’s no accident. It’s research. And Alex can’t help wondering what might have been. Unlike the innocent girl he remembers, this Emma is chic, sophisticated, and assertive—and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, Alex has never wanted her more.

Review: When I saw I had been approved for this ARC I just about hyperventilated as this is one of the romances of 2015 that I was most looking forward to getting my paws on, and boy it definitely didn’t disappoint!
I fell in love with Alex/Emma ever since they were first mentioned and I was dying to get to know their history.
Well, this book did not disappoint – as well as the juicy backstory, which was actually kind of plausible, it had oodles of UST – OODLES I tell you! Alex/Emma pretending not to steal glances at each other, Alex forcing Emma to write about her exes, Alex and Emma falling back in love with each other …….
It was nice to see the other members of the gang as well with their hilarious banter and sarcastic comments.
Really hope that Cole’s story is next? Maybe Emma persuades Daisy to come to New York and she and Cole fall in love?
