From the New York Times bestselling author of Rumor Has Itand the Lucky Harbor series comes the story of a woman whose world is turned upside down by one night's torrid fling...

Veterinary intern Emily can’t believe she wound up in the small town of Sunshine, Idaho, instead of the Los Angeles clinic she had always imagined. Now she has to put her plans to move to L.A. on hold for a whole year while she fulfills the obligation of her vet school scholarship.

Then Wyatt, her gorgeous one-night stand from a Reno vet conference, introduces himself as her new boss. And Emily is just as drawn to his seductive looks and quiet strength as she was on that very steamy night. She soon learns that Wyatt isn’t just a laid-back doctor, but a delicious alpha male tempting her away from her carefully laid-out plans...

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Vivacious Valkyrie - Marta:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

This is book five in this authors Animal Magnetism series and lives up to all the hype surrounding it. Ms Shalvis consistently writes stories that feature likeable characters struggling with life's adversities and yet somehow meeting that special someone. With this author a warm fuzzy feeling is almost always guaranteed when you read her fun sexy romances and happily this book was no different.

Emily has been training hard to become a Vet whilst trying to be a supportive daughter but her Internship in out of the way Sunshine Idaho might just be a step too far! It's bad enough that she really wants to be closer to her lonely father so she can keep an eye on him but when she walks in and meets the guy she recently had a one night stand with ( her first ever!) and he turns out to be her new boss; what's Emily to do? Wyatt is sex on legs and boy does Emily remember just how good with his hands he was! For the sake of her job though, they must keep things professional . So strictly professional sounds like a good idea but just one more night sounds even better to Emily's libido and darn it but Wyatt seems only too happy to help! What's a girl to do? No this job is important so Emily is determined to ignore the raging attraction she feels for Wyatt and besides she has no intention of staying in Idaho or does she?

Great piece of pure escapism. Two characters both trying to deny what they feel and yet at the same time so conflicted . Emily has sacrificed a lot to be the perfect daughter and has a plan and being stuck long term in Idaho is not it! She can cope with one year but being in Sunshine she slowly lets her guard down and starts to realise that life is happening all around her and maybe it's time to just start to live rather then make plans.
Wyatt is a guy who has always needed to put down roots and he's finally where he wants to be. He has always been attracted to intelligent gorgeous career women but has suffered heartbreak as none have ever put him first. Falling for Emily who can't wait to leave is definitely not a good idea so guarding his heart is a must. Slight problem though as every time they are alone together sparks well and truly fly!

This is a lovely sweet romance, but there's also a mystery wrapped in it, so watch out for the bad guy! I liked that there's sub plots going on and interesting supporting characters . I have to admit that Emily was an unexpected heroine and constantly amazed me with her appetites and can I say she's very very weak willed when it comes to the sexy Wyatt! Although who could blame her?

Another winner from this author who writes with such aplomb that frankly I'm amazed I hadn't tried her sooner! Perfect light summer read full of romance and just enough drama to capture my attention. Ms Shalvis is clearly a master of this type of book and I can't wait to read more!
