An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the Driven series.
It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance's new wedding.
I should have ignored it.Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn't. I replied.
With a plus one.
And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.
Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.
When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex's wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.
But I didn't.
And now we're left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?

YAAAAASSS! This book is EVERYTHING!
Saylor Rodgers is absolutely FINE with having called off the wedding to her boyfriend of 6 years. She was A-OK with their friends taking his side in the breakup, and the move into her own place was absolutely MAGNIFICENT. And the wedding invitation sent to her from him and his new fiancée....just FREAKIN' TERRIFIC. It was so cathartic to fill out the RSVP form. But not mailing it...that was her assistant's fault. Now Saylor's stuck going to her ex's wedding and she'll be dammed if she doesn't show up without a date. Enter HS boyfriend and Hollywood megastar Hayes Whitley.
Hayes counts leaving Saylor without a backward glance as one of his biggest regrets, and he wants nothing more than to make it right. He tries his damnedest to keep his hands off of her…but fails miserably. What happens when soul mates finally realize they're meant to be together?
You know, it's bittersweet when you discover a fabulous, new (to you) author. On the one hand, I want to rejoice in the fact that there's a ton of new options to delve into...but the other part of me wants to smack my forehead in annoyance that I'm so late to the game. This is how I feel about SWEET CHEEKS. As a woman who's reviewed erotic romance for more than half a decade (and who reads about 200 books a year), I can't believe I haven't stumbled upon Ms. Bromberg's books before. SWEET CHEEKS was so good – funny yet poignant, sexy without being ridiculous. In short, this book had it all.
Saylor was a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Sometimes, she's a fierce, fiery woman, and others she's insecure and almost mousy. As the story played out, you learn why she's so hot and cold and I felt empathetic to her situation. Hayes was both sweet and sexy, a famous movie star but also the guy who broke Saylor's heart when he left for Hollywood. He's the guy who'll have a food fight at a resort one minute and pose for pictures with fans the next. The two of them had a fantastic depth that sucked me in and had me begging for more.
It was only slightly unbelievable that an ex would attend the wedding of her former fiancé (and a woman who looks exactly like her, uses her old invitations and holds the wedding at the same place...that's stalker behavior right there, folks). Regardless, that little stint of suspended reality made zero difference to me. This book was erotic, sweet, funny, well written and edited, and just plain awesome. I cannot wait to check out more offerings from Ms. Bromberg, ASAP!!!
Bottom Line: OW/OM (couple wasn't together yet); no sharing; condom use; no BDSM; no kink; attempted sexual assault; no murder/violence.
