My life just went South…
Twenty-four hours. That’s how long it took my life to flip upside down.
Wake up in bed alone after the best night of my life? Check.
Get fired instead of the promised promotion? Check.

Now I’m in Cricket Creek, SC—a place where no New Yorker belongs—disowned and broke, with a new job that I can’t mess up. Oh yeah, and staring at my one-night stand, who happens to be the complete opposite of my type.
Noah Hunter never should have made it back to my apartment in NYC, and I definitely shouldn’t be in his small town. But fate had another plan. Or a horrible sense of humor.
Who knew Mr. Wrong could feel so right…

I enjoyed this one a lot. It was very readable and fairly low angst, with likable characters and a little heat.
Grace is a New York socialite trying to step out of her family’s shadow and forge her own career. I liked Grace for the most part. There were a couple parts where I felt she came off a bit snobby (the first scene in the B&B in particular) but overall she was a great heroine. Noah was a small town guy shouldering the responsibilities of raising his brother and running the family bar after they died. I liked Noah, but there were parts where he his whole “woe is me” attitude kind of annoyed me. He seem to jump to conclusions and get angry whenever anyone suggested he was aloud a life. I loved his relationship with his brother though. The secondary characters were great, and I loved the small town feel of Cricket Creek.
I did have a couple of issues that brought my rating down a bit. One, Noah’s backstory with his parents death etc isn’t really that well fleshed out. Even when he tells Grace about it, it is glossed over. I needed a bit more details to help me understand his guilt and almost fanatical need to be there for his brother. I also found the romance between Grace and Noah to be missing something. I didn’t feel they spent enough time together to be declaring “I Love You” Lastly, I am an epilogue girl, and this needed a better epilogue.
Overall though, this will hit the spot for many readers who love their romances on the sweet side. With no cheating or OW/OM drama.
