When friends become lovers . . .
former Marine Jackson Wilder has tough guy down to an art, but he’s
learned the hard way that promises were made to be broken. Abigail
Morgan was once his best friend, his first kiss, his first love, his
first everything. He’d just forgotten to mention all that to her and she
blew out of his life. Five years later, she’s back and he’s battling a
load of mistrust for her disappearing act. But for some reason he just
can’t keep his lips—or his hands—to himself.
It can lead to disaster or . . .
her stint as a trophy wife abruptly ends, Abby returns home to Sweet,
Texas, and comes face-to-face with Jackson—her biggest and sexiest
mistake. Time and distance did nothing to squash her love for the
act-first-think-later stubborn hunk of a man, and when he suggests they
renew their old just-friends vow, Abby realizes she wants more. She’d
cut and run once. Could she do it again? Or could she tempt him enough
to break his promise?
For the romance reader, this is a nice contemporary story that has it's toes in reality enough so that you can settle in for a good read without the rolling of the eyes. (Come on, you know what I mean when it comes to romance novels!) What I like about these novels is that they make you happy at the end. Sometimes just knowing that a book has a happy ending is worth the read.
Hunky Firefighter, hot girl, big Texas setting - who needs more!?!
