I’m out of my depth participating in a blind-date photo shoot. Not only am I meant to act like I’m open for dating, but I’m meant to be sexy and get up close and personal with a complete stranger.
None of the above is me. But I’m a sucker, and my best friend can talk me into anything.
Deacon is the kind of guy my heart could be safe with. But I’ve been taking care of myself for a long time, and I’m not sure I’m ready to rely on anyone else. Not even the handsome, successful older brother of my best friend.
I never saw her coming. One date with a beautiful stranger and I’m hooked.
Technically, Ramsey isn’t a stranger. She’s my little sister’s best friend, the same sister who volunteered me because she claims “I’m a workaholic in desperate need of love.”
All I know is I can’t stop thinking about Ramsey and the way her lips felt against mine. I have to see her again. Good thing I’m an attorney, because convincing her to take a chance on me is going to be the hardest case I’ve ever pleaded. She’s worried about the past repeating itself. What she’s yet to figure out is that her fear is unnecessary… never with me.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Kaylee Ryan has been crowned the Queen of Swoon by her readers. With nearly fifty romance books under her belt, she’s known for penning happily ever afters with heart. When she’s not writing, you can find her with a book in her hand or hanging out with her family where she resides in her home state of Ohio.
The author delivered a story straight to the point with characters who didn’t hold back, challenging and supportive of the other.
Deacon might be to be good to be true, showing kindness, patience and compassion. A man who was willing to make Ramsey his, letting her settle the pace. Meeting her put things into perspective and I loved how upfront he was.
Ramsey is a warrior, who learnt to survive and not repeat her past experiences, being an independent woman. When she met Deacon, he literally turned her world upside down, pushing her out of her comfort zone, to make her voice known.
So much love and kindness in this story and also showing the strong bonds of friendship and family. I appreciated the upfront one and sweetness. A couple who slowly figuring out how to be together, a heroine who managed to overcome her past and a hero who wasn’t afraid to go for what he wants.
They had great chemistry and connection! Really enjoyed it!
