Violet Caliendo escorts couples into the illusion of "happily ever after" as wedding coordinator at Willow Valley's five-star Caliendo Resort. But Violet doesn't believe in love or "happily ever after" anymore. She's guarded herself from love so deeply since her divorce that some even call her the "Ice Queen." When she has to plan her ex-husband's wedding, even her Ice Queen persona takes a hit.With her emotions in high gear, she takes out her frustrations by having sex with her ex's best man, Ryder Carlex. Ryder is a playboy type and Violet figures it's a simple one-time fling. But Ryder actually is attracted to Violet in a way he's never known before. Neither of them ever imagines that the sparks between them will ignite a fire hotter than anything they've ever encountered - slowly breaking down both their walls. Will Violet be able to let go of her past and embrace a possible future with Ryder? Will Ryder let Violet into his own deep, dark secrets? Or will their trust issues forever doom them both from achieving their own "happily ever after"?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved Ryder! As the event coordinator at her family’s resort, Violet is overseeing the details of her ex-husband’s wedding. When the stress of it as well as the interference from her family become too much, she stalks Ryder in order to have a quickie. He’s a playboy through and through and she knows it will be a one and done deal. Ryder is seeing an entirely different side of the Ice Queen than her ex-husband has described. While one minute she’s ice cold, the next she’s teeming with passion. Who is the real Violet Caliendo? This was an enjoyable read with lots of fun, and sometimes deep, secondary characters. The steam level is nice with a fade to black and the dynamics between the hero and heroine keep you on your toes. I loved watching this couple fall in love in spite of all the negativity they had been fed about each other. The ending was wrapped up very nicely following the acknowledgment of a few secrets that had set everyone up to take their own individual journeys.
