Floating on air thinking this is going somewhere, Izzy quickly learns why Johnny holds distant.
He’s in love with someone else. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken. Whoever was up next would be runner up, second best. Knowing the stakes, Izzy will take what she can get from the gentleman that’s Johnny Gamble. And even knowing his heart might never mend, Johnny can’t seem to stay away from Izzy.
Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. He’s not going back, but Johnny still knows the right thing to do is let Izzy go.
And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips though his fingers.
But that’s before Johnny realizes Eliza moved to town to escape danger that’s been swirling around her.
And that’s why Johnny decides to wade in.
That and the fact Eliza Forrester makes breakfast with a canary singing on her shoulder and fills out tight dresses in a way Johnny Gamble cannot get out of his head.

Release Date: December 19, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Romance books and I are NOT clicking. It's been so hard to read this genre in the last two months because every time I pick up a new one, I feel like I have read it before. Has originality been thrown out the door? It sure feels like it to me. Which is sad because I have read some really great ones and don't want to have to give up on the genre completely. Sigh...
There is no doubt about it that Kristen Ashley is a great writer. I have read several of her novels in the past and fell head over heels for them. But lately, her books are just not speaking to me the way they used to. I cannot for the life of me connect with her characters. They seem.. Well... The same as in the rest of her books. Sweet heroine, bad ass and strong hero with a complex... You get my drift. So for much of the book I just skimmed. There were really good parts that left me hanging by the edge of my seat, but there were also redundant parts that I have read by her before. Basically, I had to skim until I got to the good parts. Which is not something I like to do when reading.
Based on this, I would say the book is GOOD but not great. There was nothing spectacular about it (besides the cover which I LOVE), but there was also nothing terrible about it either. It falls somewhere in the middle for me.
Would I read the second book in the series? I will try it. However, if it becomes redundant again then I won't be buying anymore.
