Forgiveness is the best revenge.
Once upon a time, hacktivist Cyril Blanchard’s passionate letters won the heart of the woman he loved. Unfortunately, he let his best friend take the credit—and the girl. Robin discovered the truth years too late, after a hacking exploit gone south left her husband dead and Cyril in prison.
Now he’s out, and Robin says she’s prepared to give him a second chance. Unlikely. Cyril may be pretty on paper, but in real life he’s a belligerent, foul-mouthed neckbeard whose only coping mechanism is binge-eating his way back to five hundred pounds. So her offer to put him up in the ramshackle Victorian she’s renovating in small-town California seems less like forgiveness than a trap. Either that, or Robin’s lost her marbles. Possibly both.
Cyril doesn’t know what her game is, but he knows one thing for sure: he doesn’t get the girl.
He also can’t let her go.
Smart and fascinating characters. I gulped the words down and like all of Ramsey Hootman’s books, I will re-read.
