Enjoy your visit lovelies 😀
A nerdy curator. A worldly inventor. A sizzling affair.
In the age of hookups, can love survive the test of time?
Juniper Mills is a sassy, nerdy curator at the History Museum of Ann Arbor. Taking care of her mom and autistic twin, her life has been one big sacrifice for others. Work. Home. Repeat. Raised by her mother to hate men, she worries she’ll die a frigid scholar in a musty house with an army of cats and a lake of books.
Kyle Paxton is a handsome, robotic inventor of micro-cameras from San Francisco. To curb the dark memories of his ex-girlfriend who haunts him, he schedules dating and work with mechanical precision. Not looking for love, he only hooks up with Amazonian models.
Juniper and Kyle meet cute when she is dangling forty feet from a museum scaffolding. Juniper falls for him, but knows getting him is going to be hard. Juniper knocks Kyle’s world off its axis and their galaxies collide in this very unfairy tale.

Disclaimer: This ends on a CLIFFHANGER! Did not know that going in! *sad face*
When you have a nerdy woman scared of love and a man who is controlling of each and every fact of his life, including his love life – you end with an awesome book!
This is the love story of Kyle Paxton and Juniper Smoke – two people who really shouldn’t have met, but when fate has plans for you, you do not get a say in it!
I adored Kyle; really – he is emotionally stunted, arrogant and definitely confident, bordering on cocky! He is unprepared for the feelings that Juniper evokes in him, so he tries really hard to actually control it the way he does with everything else!
Juniper, on the other hand, is really not the one to actually voluntarily fall for someone, but somehow somewhere, Kyle starts to worm his way into her heart. But there is still a whole lot that she doesn’t know about him, and it isn’t like he is sharing!
This isn’t a typical love story – it is more of a sweeping drama where it isn’t the H & H are the only focus of the story, it is the all-inclusive view of human nature, that definitely makes it the more interesting of subject matter for this story!
Do I wish that Kyle and Juniper spent a little more time communicating with each other? Yes, I did. But honestly, some cynicisms are learnt, and theirs are doozy enough to actually warrant their reluctance to trust their own feelings – even though one did, by the end of the book 1.
What I would have preferred, was to go in, knowing that thus was a cliff-hanger ending for this one – I did not; and honestly do not deal well with such books! Really! So, my rating for this book will be re-visited after the next book is out and read! ❤
