His second chance may cost him his sweetest addiction …
The truth about NEVEAH’S cheating fiancée hit hard—but not as hard as her right hook to his jaw. After ridding herself of him she travels back home to Huntsville, Texas to her father and his boxing gym where she grew up. When she finds a beaten man in the woods beside her home, her entire life changes and things get—complicated.
Ex-con RAGE only wants two things—for the man that set him up to release his sister, and for him to burn in Hell where he belongs. After being released from prison, he heads straight to the man that put him there, only to be beaten and tossed in the woods for dead. When he’s found by the most beautiful girl he’s ever met, he knows he’ll have a chance to rescue his sister even though she doesn’t realize she needs saving.
Neveah and her father, nurse Rage back to heath, offer him a job at their gym and quickly find out that he’s amazing in the ring. Without them knowing who he is, he knows he’s been given a second chance to live his life. The only condition is that he has to stay away from Neveah, which is a promise he soon realizes is hard to keep. The feisty southern beauty normally gets what she wants, and Rage wants to give her everything.
With the truth lurking in the shadows, Rage must decide if his sweetest addiction is worth giving up his second chance.
This is the first book that I read from this author and it will not be the last. The book starts off fantastic and I have to say I loved Neveah’s personality. She was full of spunk and didn’t take crap from no one until she meets up with Rage. Even than she gives him a run for his money. Both characters were strong headed and I loved the chemistry and flirting that went on between them. You could tell that they were attracted to each other but tried to keep their distance.
“You’re not my boss. I checked with the boss of me, and she said I could wear whatever the fuck I wanted to wear.”
Rage was a walking, talking sex on a stick. That dirty little mouth of his had me needing to change my panties a few times. The things that would come out of his mouth had me blushing. He had a sweet side and I felt horrible for what he went through in life.
“I’m not falling for your tricks,” I said. “I know you want me to fall for this bad boy bullshit but asshole isn’t my style.”
I loved the relationship that Neveah had with her father, Wes and her Aunt Shelly. Shelly was another funny character. The things that came out of her mouth were fantastic. All the secondary characters really made this book fun and interesting.
The story was fast paced and I am a huge fan of that. The only thing that didn’t sit well with me was how quickly the relationship between Rage and Neveah changed from being attracted to each other to soul mates. I would of liked to have see more growth. I also thought that the ending was a little two rushed.
Overall, I really did enjoy this story from start to finish and loved all the characters in this book. The humor and chemistry between them all was fantastic.
