After all of the devastating betrayals by the one she loved, Twenty-two year old Avery Stevens has spent three years raising her daughter alone, with her family and best friend as a support system, never leaving her small hometown of Rivers Edge, Missouri. Though Rivers Edge holds the pain of her past, it also holds the one person she wants but can’t have – her brother’s best friend, Maddox Jackson. When she learns the attraction might not be one-sided, will Avery be able to trust Maddox with the one thing she’s held onto tightly for the past few years?
Police officer Maddox Jackson is a ladies’ man with one foot out the door. Never planning to settle down, Maddox fights the attraction he feels for his best friend’s little sister, Avery. But can he continue to fight it when his body and his heart are leading him to the one woman he shouldn’t want?
When secrets are finally exposed, can Avery and Maddox trust each other enough to overcome the past, handle the present, and preserve their future? Can Avery trust Maddox with her heart? Will Maddox be able to convince Avery to take the chance?
This is my second book by this author. I came across her by accident and really loved what I read. I decided to check out more books by her. So happy I did. I think I feel in love with both characters by the second chapter. Both, Avery and Maddox are really realistic and charming in their own way but together it is just almost too much. I always enjoy romance novels that involve a single parent if it is done right and that it is in this case. The kid was really great written into the story and it just fit so prefect. There were some moments I really loved and I had tears in my eyes. The end for all three of them was just perfect and I loved the way Maddox include Bean in everything. I just really enjoyed the story, the characters and the world building. Just really nice written and very well balanced, which made it a very smooth and enjoyable read. I just want to hand out this book to everyone I come across, lol. It is funny, sexy, some suspense and easy to read. Overall awesome book and I will for sure read the second one in the series and more books by Lacey Black. If you have not ready any books by her I highly recommend them. I rate this book 5 ★
