Getting by (A Knight's Tale) by: Claudia Y. Burgoa

Publication Date:
February 2014


When Emma Anderson arrived at San Francisco International Airport, she regretted accepting the distinction of being the maid of honor to Gaby's--her childhood friend--wedding. It had been years since the last time she set foot in Menlo Park, where her parents had been killed. The rug where she had
been shoving her feelings since that day looked bumpier than a camel's hump. Who could blame her; if she hadn't been selfish they'd still be around. Ever since that fateful day, Emma has been perfecting the knack of Getting By.
Cade's wedding in Menlo Park--a city close to San Francisco-- might be the perfect place for Jake Knight to shake the memories of his ex, Emma Anderson for good. Single, available women galore for an entire week was the perfect medication, one he intended to take three times a day for an entire week to return to his player days. It was a plan the former spy thought flawless until he came face to face with the maid of honor. Jake's perfect retreat turns into a flight, fight or hide week of celebrations.

My thoughts:
This workaholic is in for a great awakening! Her past is ugly and to be honest I can relate, so she pushes herself into work, barely making time to eat or sleep...but enough that she doesn't have time to dwell. Poor Emma, right?Bu things don't stay that way and things look up. 
in a broken down elevator, which is scary enough, she meets Jake. He's the love'em and leave'em type, with no hope in sight, until he meets her. 
This affair that is set into motion is amazing, one I would take in an instant....things get a little to homey and comfortable, which neither was expecting or seeming to want...or do they?
Emma takes her chance a runs, but another chance meeting brings them closer then ever. 
Beautifully written, well thought out!
