Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.
He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.
By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.
Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.
The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.
One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.
But then two pink lines change everything, and suddenly, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.
My Review: 4 stars
Henley and Rhys have a very interesting story. They met by chance one night when Rhys party got to loud. The next time they met, Rhys was in the hospital unconscious after a car accident and Henley was volunteering at the hospital.
For some reason Henley came back day after day to sit with Rhys, but she didn’t understand that was making her do that.
When Rhys woke up, he didn’t expect Henley to be there. He also wouldn’t tell Henley the real reason why he was in the accident he was in. He didn’t tell her because that was the easiest way to keep her safe.
When Rhys needed someone to help him recover at home, he convinced Henley to be that person. One, to keep an eye on her and two, because there was something about her that he was drawn to.
Rhys has secrets though. Secrets that could put Henley in danger.
When Rhys approaches Henley with an offer, will she accept it or will she run in the other direction? What happens when the offer has more parts than Henley realized?
Lani knows how to keep you on your toes. She is the queen of making you want to throw a book across the room. This book as a lot of twists and turns. It will keep you guessing the entire time.
