You murder a man, and all of a sudden people are scared of you.
Slate Solis went from being a guy that people went to in times of need to an ex-con that people crossed the street to avoid being too close to.
He knows he’s done wrong, but out of all of his sins, only one really bothers him—coveting thy neighbor’s wife.
Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a second glance.
After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison, she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare.
Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost disappointed that he’ll never see her again.
Except fate has different plans.
He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours when he sees her.
Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is everything Slate isn’t.
He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him, all day every day, is a complete coincidence. One that he shouldn’t take advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything.
Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?
I couldn’t be more in love with Lani’s books and this one did not disappoint! Her characters are easy to love and always hold just the right amount of humor, excitement, torment and love. I’ve read and re-read all of her books and am looking forward each new book that comes out. If you are on the fence, trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
Slate spent years in prison for murder; Harleigh works in the ER. He finds that she lives next door to him. Nothing could happen with that, right..... Lani Lynn Vale works her magic again. I couldn’t put this book down until I finished it. The character development and the story is awesome. A must read!!
FINALLY SLATE’S STORY!!!!
I was so excited for Slate’s story and per usual Lani Lynn Vale did not disappoint! After getting a little insight in the past couple books about Slate and the surface reason as to why he is in jail and then what he does while in jail, I was hooked and knew there was much more to the story but I was not prepared. I also really enjoyed Harleigh and her story, especially after it intrigued me that she preferred to sleep in a hammock outside. The chemistry between the two was a crazy push and pull that I couldn’t wait to see how they ended up together. I was also really thrown by the answers to all the questions I accumulated throughout the book. I was on the edge of my seat and it was an epic ending. As always, I love her books and can never get enough. They are the perfect amount of romance, suspense, flow, and length. Something I also love that she does is connect all the different series that she has. If you’ve read Boomtown, you would see a lot of familiar faces in her recent books, and I love that it’s a continuation of those characters in the background while giving us the stories of the next generation. I will continue to read every book she puts out and can’t wait to see where she goes next!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
