~ Sometimes you have to go through hell to find your heaven ~
Most women have a wish list when it comes to what kind of man they want to date. JC Mathews used a strict set of guidelines as a safety net to keep herself out of trouble and out of love.
On hiatus from the bright lights and speculative gazes of her career in the fashion industry, JC lets her guard down...only to the wrong man. After escaping Italy and the hands of her abuser, she returns to Malibu to recover. The last thing she expects to find is a large, gorgeous intruder swimming naked in her pool.
Reed Rider left Texas and his broken heart behind in order to settle his aunt’s affairs after her death. Seeking refuge from the California heat for a midnight swim in his neighbor’s backyard, he never expects to find the nude silhouette of a long-haired beauty standing at the water’s edge.
As their passion ignites and the pages of JC's rulebook fade to grey, she unlocks her guarded heart to begin a new chapter in her life. When hidden truths are exposed and secrets unravel, will they survive the threats from their broken pasts?
The emotion that has been poured into this story will hold you hostage start to finish.
Having not read the first 3 books in the Mathews Family series I wasn’t sure what to expect, but this book was amazing and now I’ll be going to book 1 and starting the series from the beginning. I can’t remember reading a book that made me cry like this one did, not just a tear here and there but I mean full on ugly crying.
Not wanting to spoil anything for anyone that hasn’t read the book but the mother
instinct in me kicked in when Tess saw JC for the first time after Tom had brought her home. All I could think is that no mother wants to see their baby in that way and it would kill me if my daughter ever goes through what JC did.
Keeping my review short and sweet, there is no cliff hanger (YAY), a ginormous asshole, who gets what he rightfully deserves. A beautiful heroine and a sexy as hell hero so basically it’s a no brainer and a must read. This has definitely become one of the best stories I have read this year.
