Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates isn’t the kind of man women say no to. So when he approaches waitress Avery Mullins, he fully expects to get her number. However, the elusive beauty has her reasons for keeping her distance—including a past that might come back to haunt them both.
Avery spends her nights working for tips… and trying to forget the secret Rowdy is determined to unearth. But when history threatens to repeat itself, Avery grows to rely on Rowdy’s protective presence. As the sparks between them ignite, she will be forced to choose between the security she’s finally found… and the passion she’s always wanted.
Soooooo…ROWDY!!! From book one, Run the Risk, I knew Rowdy was something special. When I got the official email asking if I wanted on this tour I was doing horrible dance on the couch that made my oldest son ask if I was ok. LOL! I am in love with this series and have been itching to get my hands on this story what feels like FOREVER.
We start with Rowdy taking care of business in the bar that he bought. It had a rough crowd working there but he has cleaned house and only kept the ones that weren’t up to no good. That includes the intriguing, redhead Avery. Hell yeah, a redhead!! 😉 That just makes her automatically awesome in my eyes and I was hoping that she lived up to the standards I set for her in my mind and am happy to say we were on the same level. I only expect the best for Rowdy since I can’t exactly hop in the book myself…oh and that other pesky fact that I’m married. Whoops!
Anyways, in usual Lori fashion, the suspense factor is usually in the forefront but our focus for this story was the Rowdy and Avery. I really enjoyed how everything is paced. Nothing felt rushed which it’s nice to have our lovers have a HEA quickly but to me, that’s all it is. Nice. It’s not realistic unlike what we read between Rowdy and Avery. The things they went through in this book only made them stronger and come to trust in the other person. This is only good news when we learn what skeletons Avery is hiding (which, by the way, was just horrible!). You can feel the love jumping from the pages and make you yearn for what they have. I loved every second of their love story and definitely would read it again if I had the time.
Lori, of course, makes sure we get to do a little catching up with our previous books’ heroes and heroines and hints at the next book in the series with Logan’s brother Dash and Lt. Margaret “Margo” Peterson. And we meet a new, very alluring man who goes by the name Cannon. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series and if you have any reservations, just trust me and start at the beginning. It’s not necessary to read this series in order but it is such a great series not to.
And before I get to the giveaway, woot! woot!…have y’all seen the book trailer? It’s hot!
