Mike Devereaux didn’t have too many regrets in his life, save one; the way he had left Ame Song back in college. A friend of his sister’s, Mike had been attracted to from day one despite the baggy clothes and big glasses. Disappointed that Ame hadn’t shown up at the party before he left, he’d gotten terribly drunk and had slept with a girl named Amelia that had reminded him of her. He still had flashbacks of that night, confusing Amelia with Ame. Now, years later he was still confused about that night. Although, he did remember the parting slap that Ame had given him when he’d asked about Amelia the next morning before he’d left.
When he is relocated back to California, Mike ends up working for the same company as his best friend Jason. Needing a secured place to stay while he finds a house to live or build, Jason recommends renting a room from his secretary, who is none other than Ame.
Although Ame had avoided him throughout their college years, not wanting to be another proverbial notch on his bed post. She knew that the night of the party celebrating the end of the semester and Michael’s leaving was her last chance to be with him. She had let her friends talk her into a complete makeover and he hadn’t realized who she was. He had been so drunk that even after making love to her, Mike still hadn’t realized who she was. Hurt and disappointed, Ame never said a word and Michael had left the next day to work at a research facility for the government. No one had heard from him since that day; until now.

Now four years having gone by, Ame realized he still didn’t remember that night. As she had to introduce herself to the man who had taken her virginity; the man she still hated to love, did she think she would still be able to work for him? Did she really want to open her home and her heart to the only man she’d ever been attracted to?

Terribly written

This book had so much potential with a fantastic storyline, I just can't believe how badly it was written. I don't need to know what the character is doing every second of the day and I don't need to be 'told' how they are feeling, what they are seeing, etc. I want to feel those emotions with them. Very disappointed - it could have been so good.

So disappointed! Goh, this book had the potential to be great! Poorly written, like it was a draft copy,un-edited version. I really liked the story and the characters! It could have easily been a favorite of mine. But it was lacking a lot with the structure and character development in the beginning of the book and than tried to cram it all in to two chapters! Just wish the author had help to properly develop the story grammatically and structurally so the flow of the book from character to character was easier to define and follow to make this book better. Because it could have been great!
