Only one woman could hurt ultra-alpha bad boy Jake Braden.
Only one woman can heal him.
Fiona Steele has arrived…
Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.
As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.
When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.
Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this tour. We have met Jake in some of the earlier Braden books but he’s always been rushing away from Trusty. Away from the painful memories. He has built up all these walls. He’s been pretending to be someone else for too long that he doesn’t know if he can ever get back to himself. Jake Braden can be my man any day. I love his cheeky nature. I love the teasing that goes on between Fiona and Jake.
Fiona is a sweet girl who made a mistake. She was young and she was scared and she did something that she has always regretted. After he Dad broke up the family it tore her world apart. She knows that Jake Braden is the one for her, she just needs to make him realise he still loves her. I think that Fiona is extremely brave to reach out to Jake. She knows that she hurt him and she knows that asking for a second chance, for forgiveness could prove futile. He could throw it al back in her face and she may be in more pain than she is now.
Every book I read of Melissa’s I love and every time I think she’s never going to be able to top this one and yet somehow she does. I am extremely excited to meet the next batch of Braden Cousins and the many more series that I know that Melissa has lined up.
