Cath passes the time waiting for her train by people watching… giving nicknames to the people who wait with her. One of them she has nicknamed “City” – a well-dressed, gorgeous guy in a suit. Someone who’s she’s sure has never once noticed her.
Cath has taken a two year hiatus from men in an attempt to straighten out her life, and she’s now got a job she loves and is no longer the person she once was. And then a horror of a blind date happens where she inadvertently takes an antihistamine and drinks some alcohol and she finds herself on the train platform in a bit of trouble. Enter Nev, who brings her back to his place to sleep it off. She wakes up wondering just what the hell she did last night.
“She’d thought of how he’d seemed to her before she knew him, cold and polished as a marble statue at the train station. How he really was when they were alone. Hot and messy. Intense and conflicted. Vulnerable and real.”
I didn’t highlight much in this book… I tend not to with romance books, but the following line was one of the couple that stuck out to me as being a favorite…
“They were loud and messy together. Sweaty and transcendent. Alarmingly, wonderfully out of control. They were the closest thing to perfect she’d ever known.”
Knox gives readers a wonderful, sweet romance with witty dialogue and some hot love scenes!

ABOUT RUTHIE KNOX:
USA Today bestselling author Ruthie Knox writes contemporary romance that’s sexy, witty, and angsty—sometimes all three at once. After training to be a British historian, she became an academic editor instead. Then she got really deeply into knitting, as one does, followed by motherhood and romance novel writing.
Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-set romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella—both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award. Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life.
Ruthie moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia.
