A high school reunion is about to get downright dirty in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.
Veterinarian, Rae Evans expects to attend a dreadful ten-year high school reunion. Instead, she’s confronted by a past she’s never gotten over. The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.
Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.
Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart. But Rae’s not that young girl who watched her high school sweetheart race off to become famous. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and realizes when a man needs her. She just has to decide if she should put the past on repeat, or walk away from it forever.
Sweet, sexy and heartwarming second chance romance
Travis Walker returns to his hometown of Catfish Creek for his 10 year high school reunion… and to reconnect with the one person he has never been able to get over.
Rae Evans is a successful veterinarian and she has met all of her goals she set for herself after graduation from high school. Even though she sacrificed and decided what was best for the younger her and Travis, she misses how close they once were. No one is more surprised when he shows up on stage at their 10 year reunion…
Now with finally being in the same room again, reconnecting is inevitable… but will they be able to move on with each other again, or will their parting break them this time…
I enjoyed this book! Rae is young yet smart when she encourages Travis to go follow his dreams and she will follow hers. Unfortunately, as they both live without each other they realize how much the other will always mean to them. Travis has come to realization that he needs Rae in his life and decides returning for his reunion is the chance he needs to establish himself back in her life. I liked both Rae and Travis’ characters and the flashback to their young love.
This book was a sweet, sexy and heartwarming second chance romance.

Kennedy brings emotion and heat to their interactions
The first I’ve read in the Bad Boy Homecoming Series: a multi-author series focusing on a high school reunion and all of those new connections. This installment from Stacey Kennedy is everything I could want in this story as two high school sweethearts meet again and test that connection between them. Travis and Rae were a couple in high school – but both had dreams that started off on different paths away from Catfish Creek. Travis dreamed of a career in music and to do that he left everything and everyone behind. Rae planned from an early age to be a veterinarian, and has set up her own practice right in town. Now with their 10th year reunion coming up, neither is quite sure whether they made the right choices years ago.
Travis has been successful, but something is missing. He’s never forgotten the girl he left behind, and perhaps, just perhaps the reunion is a good time to check in with her to see if she feels the same. Of course, keeping in touch and checking in long distance is one thing: but face to face? And Rae, successful with her practice and always making the logical choices, she’s never taken a real risk. But, she can’t help but feel that she’s not entirely happy – and would taking a risk be all that bad?
Such a wonderful connection between them and it was nice to see their interactions: almost like nothing had changed since high school. They were wonderfully drawn and their situations so very real that it was hard to not care about them. Kennedy brings emotion and heat to their interactions, and makes you want to see them just chuck everything away to be together. The second-chance romance here was realistic and both characters had that solid mix of desire and fear that allowed them to feel plausible and possible. If this is an indication of the other stories in this series – the reunion trope is alive and strong.
