Guess the book time!!! Renee just asked this question on our Facebook page, and I’m stumped. It’s not a huge description (and it doesn’t seem spoilerish), but someone that has read this will likely recognize the book.

Maryse and fellow readers: PLEASE HELP!!! A few months ago on either an author’s blog or a book blog (I follow three but this one daily) there was a post of the first chapter of a new book that is either coming out or could be out by now The first chapter was about a guy and girl who possibly could be at a coffee or ice cream shop and the next thing you know without many words exchanged they are in his car in the parking lot getting extremely friendly with one another and when there done she just gets out of the car and leaves ANY IDEAS WHAT BOOK THIS IS???

I so want to read it and bookmarked it only computer which has a screen not working problem now and I can’t remember for the life of me what the title or who the author is You gals are the best at figuring out book PLEASE HELP ME I’m desperate to figure this out and would be eternally grateful for your suggestions or help THANKS!!!

Any ideas?

Kim: I’m stumped but it sounds interesting

Kelly: I think I read that chapter as a preview at the end of one of my more recent books. And I’ve drawn a blank. Would love someone to give us a title!

Christina: Ugh…me too! I read it as a teaser on a blog site but I don’t remember which one. They’ve know each other for a while…he’s tried to be with her multiple times but kept getting’s driving me nuts!

Sarah: Its Abandon by Cassia Leo. Out in Jan.

Maryse’s Book Blog: Thank you Sarah!!!!

Sarah: You’re welcome! Tristan and Senia, from her Shattered Hearts series, run into one another at an ice cream shop, and one thing leads to another…

Reader Suggestions:

  • The Coffee Shop by Lauren Hunter <— Jennifer on Facebook suggested this one.
  • Abandon by Cassia Leo <— Sarah on Facebook guessed this one and I think she’s right!!! – expected release date will be in Jan 2014 (so it’s not up for pre-order yet)… (here’s the series reading order)

Umm, it could also be the excellent and sexy Conflict Of Interest by Allyson Lindt (published April 2103). This is the blurb :
Kenzie propositions a sexy stranger in a coffee shop to prove to herself she’s capable of taking a risk. She doesn’t expect him to be sitting across from her the following Monday as her newest client. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about what might have happened between them on a personal level if it weren’t for their professional relationship. He knows how to push her buttons, and she doesn’t want him to stop.

Scott has built his software company from the ground up to escape things like stuffy old men telling him how to behave, so he loathes his board of directors ordering him to make the public forget he doesn’t have a verbal filter. When his new publicity manager is the almost-fling he never expected to see again, he seizes the opportunity to have fun and still pretend he’s complying with the board’s edict.

Giving in to desire could mean both their jobs, but each “one last time” always leads to another. Now they have to decide what they’re willing to sacrifice to indulge this conflict of interest

Check out Silk Stalkings by Kelli Scott. The book starts out pretty much exactly like that. They meet in a grocery store. She’s a nerdy type who wants to reach out of her shell, so she sexifies herself up. The immediately get down and dirty in the hot guy’s tow truck in the parking lot. And then, she up and leaves…b/c she has a list of things she wants to accomplish and sticking around isn’t one of them. But then he goes and finds her

This scene is from either Disastrous or it’s sequel Cautious by EL Montes. I am positive this is what she is looking for!!!! I just can’t remember if it’s in the first or second book because it’s been awhile since I read them.
