After his parents' death, Brody gave up a promising career to care for his family. Now, with his siblings grown, Brody owns his own business, and for the first time in years he's alone. Elise has come to Seattle with her daughter to find peace. After years as a world-famous ballerina-and trapped in a marriage gone bad-she's looking for neither love nor attention. But she finds both in the handsome, honest man who befriends her with no strings attached.

Brody and Elise discover in each other the wild, physical passion they need. But it'll take a shadow from Elise's past to make them look beyond what they need-to what they truly desire.

Elise has moved from New York to Seattle to get away from her crazy ex-in-laws. Now she lives in a quiet little subdivision across the street from tattoo parlor owner, Brody Brown.

She is immediately attracted to him but her being a privileged ballerina, always figured she would end up with a Mr. Rogers type of guy.

One afternoon after witnessing Brody as the victim of a hit and run, they spark up a friendship that quickly turns into one with benefits.

Elise has a young daughter, Rennie, so they have to be discreet about their relationship. While these two quickly began to fall in love, everyone else was aware of it but them. Brody’s ex, Raven, especially noticed and was not happy.

I did appreciate the relationship Brody and his siblings formed with Elise’s daughter Rennie. It was nice that she was integrated into the story and wasn’t just an afterthought character.

However I did find fault with Elise and the fact that she seemed to share information about her life with everyone but Brody. Or the fact that Brody was so clueless when it came to Raven and her behavior.
