A sexy fan-favorite from USA TODAY bestselling author Victoria Dahl, previouslypublished in 2013.
Tough to tame, but not too tough to love… Charlie Allington is supposed to be on thefast track to the top—a small-town girl who was making it big in her career. Instead,she's reeling from a scandal that's pretty much burned all her bridges. Now, out ofoptions, she needs a place to lick her wounds and figure out her future. True, working ata ski resort in rugged Jackson Hole, Wyoming, isn't her dream job. But if there's one perkto coming back, it's a certain sexy hometown boy who knows how to make a girl feelwelcome.
Cowboy Walker Pearce never expected a grown-up Charlie to be temptation in tight jeans.She's smart and successful—way out of league for a man like him. But he's not about tolet that, or his secrets, get in the way of their blazing-hot attraction. Yet when passionturns to something more, will the truth—about both of them—send her out of his life forgood…or into his arms forever?
In this raunchy romp, Charlotte "Charlie" Allington and Walker Pearce tear up the sheets with red-hot lovemaking. They were friends in high school, and when Charlie comes back to Jackson, Wyo., as an adult, she sets out to show cowboy Walker that she's no longer a "good girl." Charlie doesn't discuss the Las Vegas scandal that destroyed her reputation and brought her home, but her focus on showing off her wild side comes off as aggressive and selfish as well as na ve. Walker has always been an indiscriminate flirt, and there's no indication why he's worth Charlie's high opinion (which she herself undermines by calling him a player), nor why Walker considers her too good for him. The sex is steamy, but the two spend so little time outside the bedroom that it's hard to see what they have in common.
