We pick up the story with Hannah learning that her aunt - who always liked Rafe and frequently talked about how romantic it would be for Rafe and Hannah to end up together a la Romeo and Juliet - has died and left a huge mansion to both of them.
He wants to use this house situation as a way of getting close to her. The rest of the plot is pretty boring, especially on the romance front. Rafe keeps trying to put the moves on Hannah but she seems completely immune to him. Early in the book Rafe kisses her and they start making out.
Rule 1 is that the happy couple cannot have sex the first time they make out. Any contrived reason will do to break up the moment, even a dog walking by. So Hannah stops the make-out session and then spends the next few chapters being completely indifferent to Rafe.
Then Perry shows up. Hannah asks a few questions and then accepts the invitation without cluing the readers in on why. Rafe is a experiencing a rather sad mixture of disappointment, anger and low self-esteem.
Hannah basically orders Rafe to go to the party with her as her date. At the party we come in on Rafe standing on the sidelines watching Hannah and Perry dance together. Perry seems disgruntled, which makes Rafe feel a bit better about the situation. He chats amiably with Jed, the owner of the local paper and someone Rafe knew passingly in the old days.
Eventually a dot-com billionaire comes on the scene and we find out that Hannah knows him because she organized his wedding. So Hannah uses her relationship with the billionaire to force Perry to stop blocking her friend. Perry corners her and is super-pissed about the whole thing. Perry threatens to have Rafe arrested if he lays a hand on him and Hannah pulls Rafe away before things get violent.
It was all kind of disappointing. They go back to the mansion and one thing leads to another. Suddenly Hannah and Rafe are so hot for each other that they can hardly make it up the stairs to the bedroom. They have a typical JAK sex scene where the woman is taken care of beforehand and the man lasts 5 seconds after penetration.
A few hours later, Hannah wakes up as the ice queen again. She completely freaks out about them having slept together.
He asks if she even planned to call him in the morning or if she was just using him, first to stick it to Perry by taking him as a date, and then as a convenient bed partner. She ends up running from the house like a ninny. Then Rafe asks if she wants to go partners on the business venture. Hannah basically spits on this idea and again accuses him of sleeping with her for ulterior motives. This gets Hannah and Rafe thinking that the ex-girlfriend might have been murdered by someone she was trying to blackmail so they start investigating.
They end up going to see the porn shop owner, figuring that if anyone knew about a local with these kinds of tendencies, it would be him.
Hannah is a total stuck-up prude about this whole storyline. She makes it clear that any man who enjoys cross-dressing is a sexual deviant and that anyone who frequents a porn shop is a pathetic degenerate. She can barely even bring herself to be civil to the shop owner and very much looks down on Rafe for having spent some of his youth in the store. I really hated Hannah and her sanctimonious moralizing in this scene, especially since it came right on the heels of her having sex with Rafe.
They part ways with their relationship somewhat strained.
Then Hannah goes home and finds her dog missing. She follows the sound of his barking and ends up finding him on a rocky outcropping on the beach, locked in a cage and in the path of the incoming tide. Someone had deliberately left him to drown.
