New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale about an icy war vet and the only woman capable of melting him...
With trust issues a mile long, Ryanne Wade has sworn off men. Then Jude Laurent walks into her bar, and all bets are off. The former army ranger has suffered unimaginably, first being maimed in battle then losing his wife and daughters to a drunk driver. Making the brooding widower smile is priority one. Resisting him? Impossible.
For Jude, Ryanne is off-limits. And yet the beautiful bartender who serves alcohol to potential motorists tempts him like no other. When a rival bar threatens her livelihood—and her life—he can't turn away. She triggers something in him he thought long buried, and he's determined to protect her, whatever the cost.
As their already scorching attraction continues to heat, the damaged soldier knows he must let go of his past to hold on to his future…or risk losing the second chance he desperately needs.
I loved reading this book! I mean, I love all Gena Showalter books! I just really enjoyed reading about Ryanne and Jude! They were a fantastic couple with real life issues, and yeah, they were just amazing together!
Wow, we were introduced to both Jude and Ryanne in the previous book, but it didn't quite capture the sparks that flew between them! They were both attracted to the other, but Jude disapproved of her choices in running a bar, and she didn't like his disapproval. It does make sense! But they worked at it!
Ryanne wants to see the world, and she's just about to, and that's just so great! But she also has trouble with her bar, because someone is starting a strip club, and wants to buy her out. And since he's not a nice guy, it causes issues!
I really enjoyed watching them give into their feelings, and also deal with everything that they're facing! It was just an amazing read, and I'm so glad that everything worked out, that was just the best! So great to read!
I just loved reading this book, and I can't wait for the 6th book!
