Synopsis: She’s so young, so full of life…I couldn’t let her die… Even if she made the world’s worst coffee. Emily Garret never asked to be rescued, let alone by a walking JCrew ad whose idea of fun is probably managing his stock portfolio and watching the nightly news. Then again, she never thought she would wind upside-down in a ditch after a night having a little too much fun. Reece Montgomery never planned on being anyone’s hero, especially the foul-mouthed, bleach-blonde barista from the local coffee shop. He thinks there’s more to Emily than her tattoos, and lip ring, but getting close means letting her into his past and meeting his ghosts. And he’s not sure she’s ready for that battlefield.
Okay, I will be the first to admit that I had doubts going into this book that the author would be able to live up to the first book in this series; however, those doubts were quickly laid to rest. I honestly could not get enough of this book.
I quickly fell for Reece, I mean I'm pretty sure I want to have his babies. Is that even possible? Well, maybe Reece inspired babies are anyway. He was such a strong character that was suffering with PTSD that I couldn't help but Hanns my heart over to.
Oh, let's not forget about Emily. She was a perfect match for Reece. He needed someone who knew about his demons and wasn't afraid of them. However, she wasn't without her own faults. She needed to find herself and follow her dreams.
I can't recommend this book enough. I loved it from the first page to the last. The characters were written with so much feeling, it was hard to believe that they were not real. I can't wait to read what Ms. Gibsen has in store for us next as I'm sure it will be spectacular!
ABOUT COLE GIBSEN
At seventeen Cole found herself homeless with only a beat-up Volkswagen Jetta and a bag of Goodwill clothing to her name. The only things that got her through the nights she spent parked in truck stops and cornfields were the stacks of books she checked out from the library along with her trusty flashlight. Because of the reprieve these books gave her from her troubles, Cole vowed to become a writer so she could provide the same escape to readers who needed a break the reality of their own lives.
