He’s got a history of bad decisions—is he finally about to make the right one?
Jesse Hargreaves can’t outrun his notorious bad boy reputation. Betrayed by a woman he trusted, he retreats to his hometown, Wirralong, to serve as his brother’s best man and rebuild his life. But change isn’t easy, and it’s even harder when Jesse has to fight his fierce attraction to the maid of honour—a woman well aware of the darkness in his past.
Beautician Serenity Strachan’s flippant one-liners and vibrant hair colours are armour to protect her fragile heart. She’s always crushed on Jesse, but she’s determined to keep him and his sordid past at an arm’s length. That’s easier said than done when Jesse asks Serenity to help renovate an old property. And when they're trapped underground in a tunnel cave-in, their emotional barriers fall faster than the tunnel walls.
When rescue arrives, they question their new emotional intimacy. Can Serenity trust this new Jesse with her heart? And can Jesse trust that Serenity will ignore the lure of a fortune to keep his secrets safe?
not the book for me
This author is new to me so I did not read the first book in the series but I really like Elsa she was an amazing character with a huge heart and ready to help anyone not matter what. Jack was the strong and silent type but he also seem to have a huge heart of gold as well. Serenity was a spit fire and she seem to speak her mind she seemed very fierce for those she loved. I felt like she put up with way too much from Jessie. Jessie was not my favorite I found him a rich snotty I can do no wrong type. At first I felt bad and hoped things would get better with him. When the author through in a twist in the story I thought ok here is the changing point. Lets just say what I thought was going to happen it didn’t. In the end I still was a fan of Jack, Elsa and Serenity. The friendship between Elsa and Serenity was perfect and fun and so what many want from friends. This book does have adult situations and conversations. There is cursing in this book so this may not be suitable for all. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
