At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.
the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she
discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit
card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she
thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course,
when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found.
Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and
keeping the place humming.
Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s
business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her
search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to
get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him
get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some
very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.
My Thoughts on the Book
This book is another
wonderful book in this series, We don't know much about either character
when this book starts, nothing about Jax in fact and this book can
almost be read as a stand alone but you will miss how special the cameos
are for the other players in this series, and a few other surprises
too. Calla is a strong girl that has been through more then we can
imagine and her life is not getting any easier. Jax works as her Mom's
bar and is protective of her right from the start. Both have secrets
and they find that they do not matter when it comes to how they feel for
each other. Jax is wonderful and protective but not perfect and make a
few mistakes will Calla but his love should never ever be questioned,
and while Calla has gone through more then we can imagine, she has had a
sheltered life, she too has to learn how to be part of a couple and a
team and it is wonderful journey to watch.
