Before I even met Donovan Decker, I knew his shoe size.
You see, I’d gone away for a few days, and in my haste to get out of the airport, I’d grabbed the wrong suitcase.
After checking out the expensive footwear and tailored clothes, I dialed the number on the luggage tag hoping maybe Mister Big Spender might have my bag.
A deep, velvety voice answered, and as luck would have it, he had my suitcase, too.
Donovan and I met at a coffee shop to do the exchange.
Turned out, it wasn’t just his voice that was sexy. The man holding my luggage was absolutely gorgeous, and we had an immediate spark.
He got me to admit that I’d snooped in his bag and then convinced me to make it up to him by letting him buy me coffee.
Coffee led to dinner, dinner led to dessert, and dessert led to spending an entire weekend together. Donovan wasn’t just handsome with a panty-dropping voice. He was also funny, smart, and surprisingly down to earth for a man who wore seven-hundred-dollar shoes.
Did I mention he also did my laundry while I slept?
Definitely too good to be true.
So what did I do to repay him for his kindness?
I waited until he was in the shower, then ghosted him.
My life was too complicated for such a great guy.
In the months that passed, I thought about Donovan often. But New York City had eight-million people, so what were the chances I’d run into him?
Then again, what were the chances I’d run into him a year later…when I’d just started dating his boss?
4 Heart Review by Lorena
Donovan and Autumn are definitely a couple that will stick with me for a long time!
We get this woman who picks up the incorrect luggage at the airport and ends up communicating with the person's name on the tag and have an exchange of luggages over coffee. After having that little outing in exchanging luggages, they start off easing into a very comfortable conversation that leads to them spending a whole weekend together just with so much effortless ease. The next morning she does the walk of shame "without having had the shame that weekend" and ghosted Donovan ever since.
Donovan can't seem to understand why she would have ghosted him after having such a carefree weekend with her. He thought all was great and they would lead to something, but it turns out that that's not the case.
A year later he runs into her again at the precinct when he is assigned a pro-bono case and she happens to be the social worker and he comes to find out that she's dating his boss (yikes)!
But little by little they work up a casual friendship that surely will evolve into more. Autumn just has to learn to open up her heart and allow someone in even after all she's been through. But the question is, is Donovan the one who can win her heart??
This book was a lovely read and it had its moments that had me laughing and a book that can make me laugh will definitely win my stars for making my heart sore from the entertainment.
