Bobbi-Jo Barker has been in love with the wrong man for years. A man who doesn’t fit into the perfect, controlled life she’s created. A man who not only broke her heart but nearly destroyed her. So the fact that he’s back in town shouldn’t matter because he’s all wrong for her, or so she thinks…
Shane Gallagher, prodigal son, ex-con, and all around hellion, has returned to the small town of New Waterford to mend fences and get his life back. What he doesn’t count on are the feelings he still has for the one woman who can break him—the one woman who is totally wrong for him.
And yet, as Bobbi and Shane are thrown together and begin to navigate a life with each other in it, neither can deny the attraction they feel, or the emotions that come with it—the good and the bad. And so the question becomes… can these two damaged souls survive a second chance at love?
After reading the first book of this series, I couldn’t wait and went out and grabbed the second book. I am so glad I did. Bobbi deserved her chance at love. Bobbi and Shane had so many things to work out with each other. I loved that they tried to make it work without doing that at first. It definitely added to the story and the way it all came crashing down was amazing. I could feel Bobbi’s pain, her fear of losing Shane forever. Ms. Stone definitely knows how to draw you into her stories and feel the characters within.
There was so much going on with Bobbi from the beginning of the first book. I couldn’t wait to read this book and find out what it was all about. She broke my heart. When she loves, she loves with a fierceness that is rare. And when she’s hurt… she strikes out with that same fierceness. It’s part of what caused all the problems before.
This was a very emotional read and I can’t wait for Betty’s story. I figure it’s going to be a doozy!
