New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with an irresistible Original Heartbreakers story about a woman who's never felt desired and the man who wants her more than air to breathe...
Bullied in high school, Dorothea Mathis's past is full of memories she'd rather forget. But there's one she can't seem to shake--her long-standing crush on former army ranger Daniel Porter. Now that the sexy bad boy has started using her inn as his personal playground, she should kick him out...but his every heated glance makes her want to join him instead.
Daniel returned to Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, to care for his ailing father and burn off a little steam with no strings attached. Though he craves curvy Dorothea night and day, he's as marred by his past as she is by hers. The more he desires her, the more he fears losing her.
But every sizzling encounter leaves him desperate for more, and soon Daniel must make a choice: take a chance on love or walk away forever.
I just absolutely loved reading this book! Of course I did, it's a Gena Showalter book! And it's a part of The Original Heartbreakers series! Both Dorothea and Daniel were previously mentioned in the series and I really enjoyed watching them find their happiness!
Dorothea was bullied by Harley, and when she stood up for herself, Daniel also helped. Which cemented a crush that she had on him. And while things are different, they're grown now, well, there's an attraction there, and I loved watching it grow!
There's a complicated relationship with Dorothea and her sister, and also with love-her husband treated her pretty horribly, but she can't tell her sister that. Then you add in Daniel and things were a little topsy-turvy!
I really enjoyed how things ended! She made her peace with her feelings, and made a better relationship with her sister. And yeah, with Daniel has a happy ending! Really enjoyed it! Now my question is, is the one friend not starring in this book or the next from each group going to end up with each other, and are they going to get book(s)?
Absolutely loved reading this book, and I can't wait for Can't Let Go!
