From the Blurb:
No strings attached is all Oliver can offer. He's hiding a broken heart that holds him back from diving into a new relationship, but he'll go on a blind date to make his family happy. Just one date, though; he doesn't have time for love to derail his plans.
Divorced and demoted to the night shift, Nick has his own problems. He's got an ex-wife who needs him and a kid with one foot in juvie. The last thing Nick needs is to butt heads - or other body parts - with a tempting hipster who wears a sad smile on their blind date.
Their chemistry can't be denied, though, in an argument or in bed. No strings sex is uncomplicated and that's what Nick and Oliver need. But getting into bed together is one thing. Staying out of each other's hearts soon becomes so much more complicated than either one imagined.
I think this was my very first book by this author and I can honestly say that it turned out to be a very good experience!
Oliver and Nick both needed a second chance at happiness and they were lucky enough to find each other.
Their relationship had an unconventional start with the two of them meeting over an argument for the first time and a few days later meeting again on a blind date.
Since both their lives were complicated and busy they agreed on a casual arrangement with no strings attached. They had their rules and their limits and everything was sailing along great for a few weeks but then life had to happen and everything became complicated again.
Their personal lives, that they had so carefully kept away from their arrangement, tangled together and there was no way to keep them a secret anymore.
The plot and the way the story was written kept the reader's interest the entire time and it was cleverly woven. Everything that happened was an issue from the start and there were no surprise-threads appearing out of the blue, which I appreciated very much.
The epilogue offered a lot to the story and I'm glad the author decided to include one. I was happy that Oliver was finally able to move on from his past and find his passion in life.
Even with the ending of the book taking place a few months after the rest of the events, everything between Nick and his son was still a work in progress which made it all the more realistic.
I really enjoyed this story and I have a feeling that I'll be reading more from Allison Temple in the future.
