Some mistakes are worth repeating

Tasha Riordan's one night with Luc Bradshaw was the best of her life. The following two
when she got thrown into a Bahamian jail on bogus chargeswere her worst. Now, seven years later, the undercover DEA agent is back. Invading her town. Her restaurant. Her fantasies. She can't trust a man who lied to her. Yet, neither can she trust herselfnot when their chemistry burns even hotter than before.

Learning he has two half brothers shocks Luc. Discovering they live in the same town as Tasha
that's a different kind of thrill. Their mutual lust is still off the charts, but he can't get her to listen to his side of what happened on that long-ago night. Good thing he's got powers of persuasion that go deeper than words. Because nothing has ever felt this right

 The book starts seven years ago. Tasha is 22 years old and spending her vacation on a island in the Bahamas. That's where she met Diego. He's the hottest guy she's ever met and she just spent the perfect sexy night with him.
But unfortunately he has to leave for work and she is left behind in his cabin. Where she is then being arrested as Diego's accomplice in a drug deal!!!! o.O She has to spend to horrible nights in jail before she's released!

Seven years later Tasha is the proud owner of a Pizza restaurant in Razor Bay, Washington.
Then one day, her girlfriends Jenny and Harper invite her to a dinner to introduce her to their boyfriends' new-found, long lost half-brother Luc.
Turns out Diego wasn't really the drug-dealing criminal she thought he was.
He's actually a DEA undercover agent named Luc Bradshaw.
But that still doesn't make her forget the two most horrible nights of her life - the two nights she spent in that dark prison cell!

Luc tries everything to get back on her good side again - but she's making it extremely hard.
There's still this huge sexual attraction between them, but whenever she sees him, Tasha is always reminded of those two days in hell. But she's also being reminded of this one, most perfect night of her life.


I'm not telling you that of course!! GO READ IT!☺☺☺


I'm normally not a fan of stories with side-stories in them.
We have the main story about Tasha and Luc, but we also have a little side thingy about Tasha's teenage employees Jeremy and Peyton. But I really enjoyed reading about them. Adorable.

The whole book was the perfect sexy, romantic & funny beach-read!!!!

We have this sexy dark mysterious half-Latino government agent: LUC
and this strawberry blonde, tough & sweet Pizza Place owner: TASHA
plus LOTS of other characters we all fall in love with....

Unfortunately you kind of get the feeling that the stories of Luc's brothers have been told by Susan in previous books, but it didn't bother me all that much, and this book doesn't say anything about being part of a series, so it was ok. But if you want to read the books about how Luc's brothers Jake & Max found their happy ever afters, you can read the ► RAZOR BAY SERIES ☺
Normally I don't like it when I missed two books - and those are literally the only two Susan books that I haven't read. It would've been nice of the publisher - or Susan - to mention the Razor Bay Series connection somewhere. Why isn't this book #3 of this series??? Very confusing.
But you can totally read NO STRINGS ATTACHED without having read the other two books. But I always like having read everything, and that I didn't know there's a connection, just bothered me a tiny little bit :(((

BUT - all ^^^^ that doesn't change the fact that I really enjoyed reading this book.

If you love Susan Andersen books - like I do - you will love this one as well!!!


with lots of romantic & sexy & funny & frustrating and moving scenes!!! ☺☺☺




I grew up in a household with two brothers, a daddy, and my grandfather. Too many men, in other words. They diluted M'ma's influence by diverting my attention to things like the danger of answering nature's call in the dead of the night. I've got a hint for those of you raised in a less spit-and-scratch world: check before you sit, because chances are that seat is gonna be up. And they don't even have the grace to be embarrassed about it. According to my sweet baby boy, if you're the minority sex in the household, you oughtta be putting it up for them. Sigh.

Having brothers was a mixed bag. When anybody messed with me they were always quick with an offer to beat them up. That was sorta nice, although I personally believe it had more to do with the fact that guys just like to fight than with any towering concern for my welfare. You might think that's cynical but guess who the target was if no one else was around and they were tired of fighting each other? I must've spent half my childhood locked in the bathroom, screaming, "Dad's gonna get you when he gets home." I know, I know, nobody likes a stoolie. But it was either that or have my block knocked off on a regular basis, and trust me, Daddy was the best deterrent going.

A smart woman probably would've gone away to an all-girl school or moved in with some girlfriends at the first opportunity. Me, I got married to my high school sweetie. And the tradition continues. Our only kid (who hasn't been a kid for quite some time now) is the aforementioned sweet baby boy, and except for an Irish setter we had for eleven years a long time ago, even our pets have all been male. I just try to stay afloat whenever I find myself in the deep end of the testosterone pool, and if you don't think that isn't a trial sometimes, I'm here to tell you- it can be hell.

Then again, it can also be heaven. In fact, it mostly is. But listen, don't tell my guys I 'fessed up to that, okay? Trust me, it's difficult enough already, just trying to stay one step ahead of the game.
