Sometimes when perfect falls apart, a little trouble fixes everything . . . Twenty-one-year-old Kayla Turner has lost everything. After spending most of her life taking care of her ailing mother, she just wants to spot a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. So when her late father-a man she barely knew-leaves her an inheritance, she finally breathes a sigh of relief . . . until she learns the inheritance comes with strings. Strings in the form of handsome playboy Daren Ackwood, her father's protégé. To see any of her inheritance, she's forced to team up with him. From his expensive car to those sexy dimples, Kayla's seen his type before. But Daren isn't who he seems to be . . . Struggling to make amends for his family's mistakes, Daren has a life more Oliver Twist than Richie Rich these days. He's beyond grateful that James Turner included him in his will, but working with Turner's princess of a daughter to fulfill his cryptic last wish is making Daren wonder if being broke is really so bad. Still, she's just as beautiful as she is stubborn, and the more time he spends with Kayla, the less it feels right being without her. Soon Daren and Kayla begin to wonder if maybe the best gift Kayla's dad could have left them . . . was each other.
This is another good new adult book. I'm loving the books I have been reading so far.  This is the companion novel, following two characters we were introduced to in The Best Kind of Broken,   I loved this one more than the first, this was extremely sexy and hot; but mostly this is a redemptive story.  I loved Kayla who was desperate to cling to hope, to find her way back to herself.  She had a tough time and due to the selfish actions of another is struggling to stay afloat.

Daren known as a 'legendary lover' is desperately trying to staunch the flow from his soul.    Deeply wounded by his mother's actions and the death of his girlfriend Daren struggles to find something to hope for.  With the death of Kayla's dad they are thrown together and given one last chance to find hope. This book broke my heart and made me feel so deeply.

This book really hit at the concept of appearance and what may be seen doesn't always give the full story.  This was wonderful to read.  Kayla is considered beautiful and because of it, she's very rarely given the chance to prove she has a brain, because of it, she's wary of women (because way too many of us are catty when we first meet other women) and Daren is known as the kid from the wealthy family who gave the town a reason to gossip and even though it's been years there are still people who won't let the old gossip die. (sad little lives they must live, can you tell I live in a smallish town??)  This was wonderful to read, because I'll be honest at first I really thought Daren was just a player as well, I mean that's all he would let us see.

I really felt connected to the characters but especially to Kayla after she started off with
" I knew it was going to be a bad day when I woke up with a spider on my face. A SPIDER.ON.MY. FACE"
Yeah she and I could be really good friends.  I loved her in that moment.

Now I want Ellen's story, I want to know why she's so awesome. She's completely awesome.    I do take a few points off for some errors of editing like "fishes" ..just no.. It's fish goddamnit.  One fish, two fish, three fish. never fishes; and someone can't count last summer she was 13, this summer she's fifteen.  Le Sigh people Le Sigh.

I still love it, Highly recommend for those in love with the new adult genre and are looking for good books and good stories to read.  I can't wait until the third book comes out.
Happy Reading
