Mainly because, she just slept with some random guy that she in reality barely knew, someone that was not as cool as her husband who I thought was actually a pretty good personand didn’t even try to control herself. It’s hard to remember, now that I’ve actually read one novel and I’m in the midst of another, but I don’t think I expected the kind of character you want to shake. Perfect for summer, for sure!

Lock asked Claire to co-chair the organization’s annual benefit gala because her first love, Matthew now Max Westwas a huge rock star, and Lock wanted him for the benefit and he wanted Claire to create hilderbranx on-of-a-kind glass piece to auction at the affair.

It was hot, hot, hot in Memphis! I don’t need to love every book character out there, but this book is filled with x bunch of annoying classist and slightly racist mean girls and I can’t even. Over the year between her taking on the gala and all that goes with it and the event itself Claire and Lock carry on their illicit secret life and as the gala approaches everything begins to implode, including her relationships with the three key men in her life.
