ONE LITTLE LIE. A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE.
Run to You
Risking it All #1
Releasing Aug 30th, 2016
Moments after meeting the most gorgeous guy ever, Gabby Winters promptly gets stung by a zillion yellow jackets and falls-not gracefully-into a stream. Yup, Ethan Hunter is trouble with a capital "hot," and Gabby definitely needs to keep her distance. Except in the small town of Haven, there's nowhere to hide from Ethan's sexy, infectious grin . . . and all the residents are conspiring against her.
At the center of the town's matchmaking is Ethan's grandmother, who's convinced their relationship is a done deal. Rather than break her heart, Gabby and Ethan find themselves cornered into pretending to be falling in love. The problem: there's serious sizzling attraction between them. And if this charade continues, they won't fool just the entire town - they might fool themselves too . . .
Don't miss ROCK WITH YOU,
a Risking it All Novella
When Ethan awoke, sunlight was streaming through his window, and based on the tent in his sheets, Gabby was still on his mind. He closed his eyes and started counting backward from fifty, his morning tradition to relieve the pressure so that he could leave the bedroom without being indecent in front of Gram.
His dick was just starting to relax when his phone pinged with an incoming text. Welcoming the distraction, he reached over and grabbed it off the nightstand.
The text was from Gabby. Thinking about you this morning and hoping that problem we talked about hasn’t gotten too hard to handle.
She’d inserted a little winking emoticon at the end, followed by a sunrise and a tree. Morning wood. And yep, that problem had just gotten really hard again.
Killing me. He texted back.
That bad, huh?
Oh yeah, it was bad. Getting worse by the second.
I’d be happy to help you with it if you want to stop by… This was followed by several colorful hearts.
His poor cock ached at the thought. But… No can do. Gotta take Gram to an appointment.
No kidding. Gotta go. Chatting with you is not helping the issue.
He thrust his phone back onto the bedside table and lay there, concentrating on the sounds of Gram moving around in the kitchen until his dick finally accepted defeat. Then he went down the hall and took a long, cold shower.
Ethan is such a sweet guy, that I just couldn't understand why he was so afraid into turning into his father. He's never had a serious relationship, but there is something about Gabby that keeps him wanting more. Gabby has her own issues to deal with due to an abusive relationship, but the town, as well as Ethan, helps her get her confidence back. If you like sweet, fun, emotional small town romances, then you will enjoy this one. While some of the story line is a bit on the predictable side, the writing and the characters are great and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
