Safina Ralph is single on Valentine's Day. She's determined to have a good time in L.A. away from her home in Chicago with her friend, Lynn. The two of them have exclusive passes to Red, the hottest nightclub on Venice Beach. Just as the festive atmosphere begins to coax Safina into the party mood, she notices someone, or something in the rafters, shooting arrows into the crowd of unsuspecting partygoers below!
Chaos erupts as Safina races to stop the attack. When she confronts Kal, one of the club's sexy owners, Safina's sure he's the attacker despite his warm reassurances and her body's hot response to his touch. Consumed with overwhelming feelings of déjà vu and desire, Safina is relieved to get back home but she can't shake unsettling questions and Kal's handsome face from her mind.
After their encounter at Red, Kal tracks Safina down in Chicago with questions of his own. And the answers for them both could be the key to everything they've wished for, but will Safina accept the truth and can Kal trust his heart?
Erotes fly in and out of the story with great abandon. Missing luggage forces librarian Safina Ralph to borrow her friend’s clothes, and with the new garments comes a personality change, even if it is only for one evening. And when that happens, mischief, mayhem and magic abound. When you’ve read this, you won’t look at Valentine’s Day in quite the same way again.
Kal thinks he’s got the rough deal when he’s told to meet the million targets demanded of him at the Red club in one night, and things soon get out of hand when he is spotted up in the rafters by Safina.
We never find out how Kal traces Safina to her work place the following week but that doesn’t matter. Safina soon discovers there’s a lot more to Kal than she bargained for. All she has to do is decide whether the flaring attraction between them is strong enough to overcome the constant stream of surprises that come with her dream guy.
This s a fun story to read and Safina and Kallias Anthony don’t have much time to build their characters and yet, Angela Nichelle rounds them both out nicely so the ending doesn’t sneak up on you and leave you feeling cheated. Indeed, it is a lovely ‘ah-ha’ ending. I definitely recommend this book and give it four books.
