Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice. Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already. But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.
I really enjoyed diving back into this world.    I really loved this one, Got so into it,  I had it in physical form but I couldn't put it down so I bought it on Kindle so I could read any chance I could get.  It's truly smoking hot between them. Seeing Reece was awesome and getting to know Roxy was cool, she's really the kind of girl I could really be friends with.

I loved reading this story so much, Roxy is one of my favorite women to have read in a while, she brash, funny, witty, a fangirl, an artist and a woman who loves deeply and fiercely, she's also a woman dealing with pain from the past.  Unlike the other books in the series, Roxy comes from a well adjusted family, a loving family at that, she and her parents get along really well.  She's loving her job at the bar, where her friends and ever expanding circle all hang out, her only fly in the cream is Reece.  I loved that she really kinda had it together, she had some things to tweak but she wasn't a complete mess either, and she wasn't just relying on the bar as her job, she had a side hustle that she loved a secret talent that she nurtured.

Reece was like so many of the other guys in this series, a good guy with a tough job, he's not perfect but he isn't a fool around and hurt the woman he's with just because he can kinda guy, and I love him for that.  Having decided that enough is enough he confronts Roxy and our story unfolds from there. I absolutely love them together, they were witty and snarky together and I just loved all the references they kept making. The story unfolded quickly and allowed us to catch up with old friends and see how this relationship was developing as well.  We already know that Jen can write the hell out of sex scenes so you know these were amazingly hot and great to read.  (It's a talent I promise you, cause nothing can kill a scene more quickly than awkward phrasing)

Even though I had kinda guessed the who, the why escaped me until the end, and I did guess the way they were doing things, but only because I've lived in a big ole house like that before and know all about those ...well now I almost gave it away. Nope you gotta read it and see it to believe it.  The big ole bowl of crazy that came pouring out?? I don't think there is anyway to prep for that at all.  Villains always have the dumbest reasons to become villains and this one is a flipping idiot but they give good mystery.

I really loved Roxy and Reece coming together, and how much Reece helped to bolster Rosy when she needed it, gave her an understanding shoulder to lean on and was at her back if he thought she needed it. Roxy was pretty bad ass and only had one moment of being too stupid to live, but even she called it that when it happened.  I loved that her decision to be an adult and embrace changed helped her along and even...well I almost gave away another major clue, just know that good karma gets repaid quickly and man she needed all the good she could get.

I'm wondering if we are going to get his story, the boy that Roxy grew up with.  It would be interesting to get a few more stories, I can't wait until their best stripper friend ( for the life of me I can't remember her name right now, I can't wait til she gets a story as well, and the man that gets her is going to have to be hella awesome as well).  and Nick the other bartender and so many more stories, I can't wait to get my hands on them.
Happy Reading and happy lusting for the next one, which I can't wait for!!!
