Rhett Senova could charm a woman out of her panties and in the next breath, thank her mother for dinner.
Smooth doesn't even begin to cover his moves. But the hottest playboy in Arrow Creek wasn't always this way.
He had dreams of a one-woman future, and the cry of his firstborn brought him to tears.
He never thought his wife would cheat on him with her boss.
Each day is a feud over the dream home he had built for his ex and learning to raise his young son without the jaded lens now coloring his world.
Starting over in his thirties isn't on his agenda. Not now that he's raised impenetrable walls. His ex left the sour taste of infidelity in his mouth, and he's not sure he can trust anyone new.
That is until he meets a vision passing through town and nearly gets mauled by her she-demon dog.
Her sassy wit makes other women seem inadequate, along with those luscious curves and burgundy curls.
The fact she hides beneath her tough exterior that she might be in trouble sends up red flags he'd be smart not to ignore.
Using his charm to win over the pit bull is the easy part. The question is whether he wants to win over the guarded redhead too.
**What Tears Us Down is a complete stand-alone in an interconnected series and can be enjoyed without reading the other books. Each book features its own couple in the small town of Arrow Creek.**
Inspiring and heart wrenching
Rhett and Evie’s story grabbed me right out of the gate. I wouldn’t call their first encounter a meet-cute, but it was definitely unique, as well as sad. Rhett is very protective of this woman that he’s just met, but Evie doesn’t want or need anyone telling her what to do or to watch over her. She just needs to get back on her feet.
Through a series of coincidences, their lives intersect outside of their own interactions, some of which are revealed sooner than others. Rhett is trying to get his life back as well, especially where his son is concerned. The way they support each other is wonderful.
I shed a tear or two, as well as felt a lot of anger on their behaves, as their story unfolds. Their chemistry was undeniable and their push to get out from under the burdens holding them down…while growing both a friendship and deeper feelings for the other. From start to finish, Rhett and Evie were both real and inspiring. I loved them as a couple and individuals.
