A little white lie has the power to bring a reformed bad boy to his knees.
Back in high school, Ann Weaver told herself getting ditched by Jack Bloom was for the best. At twenty-nine, she’s way over him. He was her first, but definitely not her last. On weekly wine night with her friends, the talk turns to regrets—and Ann finds herself pledging to fix her past, starting with confronting those who treated her like dirt. Her first target: Jack, who’s recently moved back to town to stay.
But something’s different. He’s funny, kind, and amazing in bed. He acts like he really likes her, might even love her. Soon Ann is having a hard time remembering she’s only in it for revenge. Especially when she learns the real reason he dumped her.
Jack is older, wiser, and has a hell of a lot of experience behind him. For a chance at a future with this grown-up, gorgeous Ann, he’s ready to do whatever it takes. Until her true motive for rekindling their romance comes to light, and Jack must decide if forgiveness is enough to let love push through the lie.
Warning: A woman who’s out for revenge and encouraging friends rooting her on. May include sex in the outdoors, fun with salad, kissing in class, and a school teacher swearing like a sailor—not necessarily in that order.
I always have a slight apprehension when I start a new series by an author that I adore and Ms Harte had my heart with the McCauley Brothers series.
We all remember our first loves. Some loved and continued the journey with them … while others plotted their doom. Ann was in the latter category. Jack was going to meet his doom – that was till his sweet talking mouth landed on hers and she all thoughts of his demise were suddenly gone.
There are no punches pulled when these two get together – there is nothing but spark! Hot and heavy and making up for lost time. Only thing is, these two have a horrible back story and I totally understand why Ann had so much hate and distrust for Jack. Add to the mix, Jack’s ex-girlfriend and the group nemesis, Selena reappears and causes chaos till Ana’s friend Maya sets her straight and gives her a busted nose.
I do love a second chance at love love story and the witty banter that goes on between all the characters left me feeling warm and fuzzy. Just the right amount of tension, sexy times and heartache and heart-warming moments.
