Camille Camlin is crushed when her trip to California is canceled because her boyfriend chose his job over her — again. Cami is a bartender and having a weekend off is rare, so she decides to let loose where she works, at the Red Door. She’s not surprised when tattoo artist Trenton Maddox joins her and strikes up a conversation. After all, he is quite the ladies’ man, and although she won’t give in to temptation, she’s still a tiny bit hurt he doesn’t remember her from high school. Trent doesn’t want to hear that Cami has a boyfriend and will do anything for a chance to squeeze into her heart. Now Cami is torn between trying to remain just friends with gorgeous, bad boy Trent and saving her long distance relationship. (ATRIA, Jul., 416 pp., $16.00, ISBN: 9781476759586, PB, 18 & Up)
