Synopsis from Goodreads:

Robert Quidell understands the side effects of his bad boy behavior: No bonds. No commitment. No connection. He gives his goddesses one night of wish fulfillment and supernova sex. But he always wakes up alone.

Isolde Wellington understands the life of a photographer: She’s outside. Always moving. Always documenting the world. She creates brilliant, soul-melting photos. But she, too, always wakes up alone.

Graduate school promises Rob the opportunity to shed his bad boy reputation. For Isa, the opportunity to crash in her brother’s apartment offers a moment of stability.
They never expected to find each other.

But connection means sacrifice. Commitment-free lives offer ease—but no touch. No brilliantly fulfilled wishes. Will Rob and Isa fall into their old ways again, or will they fight for their souls’ desires?

My Review:

Radcliffe somehow seamlessly merges sass with eloquence in her storytelling. The story is intrinsically artistic while remaining entertaining and exciting. The heat simmering below the surface throughout this novel erupts at the end, causing an epically unexpected ending to this brilliant tale. Radcliffe combines the difficulties caused by our individual pasts with all the possibilities of the future to create an unforgettable tale of love & acceptance.

This is an intelligent story, written for adults by adults. And the characters are grownups too. They talk and (usually) act like intelligent, educated individuals. Rob is developed perfectly to a T. He is absolutely priceless. You can’t help but love him, even if he is the world’s biggest dork at times. Radcliffe really makes her characters’ body language come to life. You get to know them so well by the way they silently read each other.

This may just be my favourite Quidell story yet. Radcliffe tells a story that is emotional yet exciting, hot yet sassy. It’s the best of all worlds.
