Charlie and Skye’s love story was very raw, emotional, and unique. It was a definite five star read for me. I loved the way the book was in two person POV and I especially loved all the twists and turns it took to make the story its own in a very unique way.
Charlie Ward is wealthy 29 year old man that was born into money. He works for his family’s country club as the “fixer”, Charlie loves to fix problems. Ever since he was a small child and lost his mother, he has a need to fix everything. Skye Evans is a dance instructor and former stripper. She is trying hard to turn her life around and make good choices. With a scarred childhood, being the secret daughter of a mistress and a wealthy man with another family, she despises the rich people.
When Skye’s dance class is threatened by the new classes at the country club, Skye decides to attend the open house in hoping to talk her parents out of taking their children out of her class. Before she has a chance to confront her student’s parents, she bumps into the clubs grounds keeper. Charlie thinks Skye is there to crash the open house and Skye believes that Charlie is the country clubs grounds keeper. Neither of them make the effort to ask each other because the sexual chemistry is enough for them not to care (and ummmm… its great… pool sex scene anyone?)They have an amazing night together but then they lose contact because of some crazy bad luck.
Speaking of bad luck, the universe is definitely not on the couple’s side as everything that could go wrong does. Skye ends up losing almost everything she has worked so hard for and her life starts to unravel. When Charlie finally finds Skye again, she is down and out. He tries to fix her problems for her and is succeeding pretty well, until she realizes that he is rich, and not the grounds keeper. Can she finally trust a wealthy man? Charlie is not without his demons, he is not so sure of Skye either, even though he has strong feeling for her, he thinks that she is hiding something from him.
My favorite thing about this story is the way it keeps you on your toes. I loved not knowing what the next chapter was going to bring. If you’re looking for a new kind of love story, Charlie and Skye’s story is it.
**Excerpt**~ Charlie and Skye -
Charlie: “I’ll do anything for a future member. When you get back to your car, you’ll find in addition to having your tire fixed, your vehicle will have been thoroughly washed, waxed, and vacuumed.”
“You were so worried about me sneaking in here and stealing all your fancy cheese, and now you’re being so nice to me, Why?”
“Because you can’t trust first impressions.”
