Rachel Gibson, New York Times bestselling author of Rescue Me, returns to Texas with a tale of what happens when a tough guy meets his match—and falls harder than a ton of red-hot bricks . . .
There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day.
Stella Leon's bartending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine Beau Junger decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister—the one with the perfect life—sent him. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride . . . and seduce Beau's military-issue socks off …
The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot…
Beau Junger was just doing a favor, so why does he happen to be in a bar on drag night? He needs to give a message to Stella Leon and he can't change the circumstances. Of course when he pops her handsy boss after he doesn't take no for answer and now Stella has the mob chasing after her. Feeling a little responsible for the unpredictable woman Beau tries to rectify the situation, but even the former Marine can't keep a tab on Stella and finds himself falling for her.
A lot of fun. Beau is fairly stoic and snarky in the beginning which is completely opposite of Stella. I thought that Stella was a great character, she is a fighter but at the same time kind of a free spirit who just happens upon instances she can't control. Another wonderful read from Rachel Gibson.
