Samantha Hall needs a fresh start

Broken hearted and alone in a new city, Samantha begins to build a new life for herself while working as a bartender. Focusing on her new friends and rebuilding her broken life, Samantha is content.

Until she meets him – attorney by day and a cocky, foul mouth playboy by night. All girls want Slade Long, but not one has ever been able to keep his attention for long. Having a different woman in his bed every night is how he prefers it-no emotion, no connection.

Until he meets her – an angel with the sweetest voice he has ever heard and the most enticing green eyes. Samantha makes him second guess his actions and has him wanting something he didn’t know existed. How can a man who has never been in love, be so sure? Can real love happen this fast?

Burned by her past, Samantha struggles to keep up with the overwhelming passion she feels for Slade. She knows that he will be nothing but trouble to her already fragile heart, but how long can she continue to deny the love that she feels for him?
Will Samantha let Slade prove his love is real, or will she push him away?

She thought she knew love…… He thought he never wanted love….. Together they will show each other what they can’t live without.

REVIEW by Dani
  I LOVE this book!! This is one book I will read over and over again. This is a book I will ALWAYS recommend. A stellar debut by Shantel Tessier. I was drawn to the book a few months back by the cover. I loved all the teasers that came out, and the synopsis. Those were nothing compared to the complete love I fell in with this book. Absolutely amazing. I could not pull myself away from this story. It is written in alternating POV’s. I am so impressed with Shantel with the writing in Slade’s POV.

Meet Samantha at the beginning who moved to St. Louis with her boyfreind after she graduated college. The bastard cheats on her and she is left with only 2 friends , Micah and Holly, in a city she has only been in for a few months. But Samantha is a strong determined women. I adored Samantha in this book. She has been dealt some crappy things in her life, but she is a true survivor, not letting anything knock her down. She is determined to move on with her life. I love the fact that she is a strong independent gal.

We meet Slade as well, he is a man whore. He thinks this is how life should be a different girl all the time, no commitments. He is a cocky successful attorney.  Then one night he receives a call and everything changes.

“I can’t get Samantha out of my head. God, that voice. So sweet and gentle, it had taken my breath away when she spoke my name. I have never experienced anything like it before.”


He tries anything to get Samantha out of his head and then one night he finally come face to face with the “Angel” he heard on the phone. The circumstances he meets her face to face are extremely amusing. Slade has to work harder than ever before to even have Samantha give him the time of day. Slade always has girls wanting him just with one look, but not Samantha. She intrigues him.

Micah turns to walk out of my office, but stops at the door and turns around. “Hey,Slade?”


“Just so you know, I didn’t come tell you that so you could sleep with her. I know you like her and I
told you that so you could get to know her. I have a feeling you’re going to have to work hard just for
that much from her.” He pats the door then walks out.
Don’t get me wrong, Slade is arrogant and an ass at time, but when he goes all in, he goes way in. He is ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING, you will fall in love with him. The chemistry between Samantha and Slade is great. One minute you are laughing and the next you are rooting for them. Not to mention the incredible off the chart steamy scenes. They are so undescribable HOT.

  “She might look like an angel, but my thoughts of her have been nothing short of sinful.”  


“I want to hear that perfect mouth of yours, scream my name again tonight.” He whispers against
my lips as his baby blue eyes search my face. My eyes close and he pulls my head back, placing his lips on my neck and trailing tender kisses up to my jaw line. “I want to feel your body shake after I make you come.”

The book takes us through the story of building their relationship, no major turmoil, no heavy angst, juts a love story on how boy hears girl. Boy cant get girl ouf his head and does everything in the book to make girl his. Girl of course would be out of her mind to not want boy, in this case the amazing Slade.

This book as absolutely everything you could want. A great story with 2 people who are not a whole and need each other to be complete. I loved everything about this book. There was not one thing I can think of I did not like. It is a definitely a TOP 5 read of the year for me. There is not a cliffhanger but there will be a second book in this series. Which is good, because I need more. I want more. I can’t wait until book 2 is released. I just need to decide who I want more of? Sam and Slade? Courtney & Josh or Micah & Holly? DECISIONS uugh?

Shantel is a Texas born girl who now lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma with her high school sweetheart, and their three year old little princess. She considers herself extremely lucky to be a stay at home wife and mother. When she’s not reading or writing, she spends her time with family and friends.
  I have had a book idea in my mind for quite a while. This past Christmas when everyone was trying to figure out what they wanted to do for their New Year’s resolution. I told myself I was going to take that step to making it happen. I have always loved to read and it just felt like it was the right time for me to write my own book.
