4 Stars 

Although this is the fourth book in the in the California Dreamers series, it is the first that I have read, and I completely enjoyed it. It can easily be read as a standalone.

This is Maya and CJ's story. After being dumped Maya goes to a bar to find a random hookup, something she has never done before. To her surprise she discovers that she is her hookup's training officer.

The story was entertaining and engaging. The characters had a great chemistry, they were endearing, like-able and believable. It's a nice quick read with touches of humor.

This book is told from a first person point of view, and I think I would have enjoyed it that much more if CJ's point of view had been shared throughout the book as well.
