From USA Today bestselling author Darcy Burke comes a sexy and emotional family saga about seven siblings who reunite in a small Oregon town to fulfill their brother's dying wish ... and find love in unexpected places.

Fed up with her self-imposed single life, successful event planner Sara Archer heads to a bar for a night of dancing … and bumps into Dylan Wescott, the high school crush she hasn’t seen in years. A little harmless flirting leads to a hot, completely uncharacteristic one-night stand; but when she wakes up alone, Sara knows her life is too complicated for a relationship and there can’t be a repeat.

Dylan, a divorced, ex-military construction contractor, limits himself to casual flings—his failed marriage proves he’s better off alone anyway—but he can’t stop dreaming about Sara. And when his firm is hired to oversee the renovation project run by the Archer siblings, Dylan and Sara are unable to resist their explosive chemistry.

But when their secret affair grows beyond “friends with benefits” and neither is willing to admit they want more, family drama and emotional scars may ruin their chance at a love they believed was only in their dreams.


I am a huge fan of Darcy's, I gooble up any book that she writes.  I absolutely LOVED this book, I loved the uniqueness of the family, the underlying plot, and I can go on and on.  This is the first time I read a book about a family of sextuplets. Due to their unique family makeup, they were a household name and become a TV sensation. Their day to day life was televised in every family's living room. 
It's a great start on a series of books on how their lives intertwine and how a tragedy can either pull them apart or together. I hate sounding cryptic but I don't want to give too much away.  It was also educational, Darcy taught us about Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Very Interesting. You meet each sibling who will eventually have the spotlight.
Dylan and Sara- oh my- they were combustable. Dylan and Sara had a one night stand. Their paths soon cross, Dylan wins the bid for contractor in renovating a property own by Sara's family. They started off as friends with benefits but soon found that was hard to keep under wraps. They scenes were steamy. Fair warning for those who are uncomfortable with raunchy terms, there are a few times when they are used but I think in the manner of when they were used was very appropriate.  I hate to compare Darcy's style with another author, she stands apart on her own, but if I had to, I would say she writes like Lori Foster, Jill Shalvis, and Christie Ridgway.

Darcy Burke is the USA Today bestselling author of hot, action-packed historical and sexy, emotional contemporary romance. Darcy wrote her first book at age 11, a happily-ever-after about a swan addicted to magic and the female swan who loved him, with exceedingly poor illustrations. 
A native Oregonian, Darcy lives on the edge of wine country with her guitar-strumming husband, their two hilarious kids-who each seem to have inherited the writing gene in some form-and two Bengal cats. In her "spare" time Darcy is a serial volunteer enrolled in a 12-step program where one learns to say "no," but she keeps having to start over. Her happy places are Disneyland and Labor Day weekend at the Gorge.
