He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.
took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese
Spencer shattered it. But she did. Now, years later, strong and
independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the
Altman American Dance Theater. Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a
girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to
reach her goal.
That is, until Reese reappears, offering a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t refuse. In
exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her
an audition with the famous dance troupe. All Kennedy has to do is keep
her head down, work hard and resist Reese. That sounds easy enough,
Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for
Kennedy. Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome
one. It took him years to forget about her before, so this time he has a
plan. It’s simple: Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of
his system, move on with his life. That sounds easy enough, right?
the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so
strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of
her. To save her. Even if he has to save her from himself.
My Thoughts on the Book
4.5 stars. I loved Reece
and Kennedy's story. Reece is an arrogant guy but even when he is
thinks he is being honest with himself about how he thinks he feels you
can tell he feels more, which is good because he would be hard to like
otherwise. Kennedy has past that was not pretty and Reece was the best
part of it and part of the worst at the same time. She tries to keep
her heart safe but it hard to really keep Reece at a safe distance.
Their reunion is a surprise and it is beautiful how they get together,
before it starts to fall apart again. HEA is the ending but it is well
and hard earned.
