Synopsis from Goodreads:
Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates isn’t the kind of man women say no to. So when he approaches waitress Avery Mullins, he fully expects to get her number. However, the elusive beauty has her reasons for keeping her distance—including a past that might come back to haunt them both.
Avery spends her nights working for tips… and trying to forget the secret Rowdy is determined to unearth. But when history threatens to repeat itself, Avery grows to rely on Rowdy’s protective presence. As the sparks between them ignite, she will be forced to choose between the security she’s finally found… and the passion she’s always wanted...
The characters in this novel are developed bit by bit until you get a full picture of who they are. This goes for the main characters as well as the supporting cast. I found myself falling in love with the fully developed Alpha male lead. I also felt for the female lead. Foster made it so easy to identify with her. I also really appreciate the fact that Foster takes the time to develop characters that we got to know in previous novels. It makes this novel a real stand alone, even while it follows perfectly in the series as a whole.
As a whole, this is a very well put together novel that I couldn’t put down for even a second. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys Alpha male leads and romance with a bit of suspense on the side.
