He was the bad boy...
After twelve years in the Marines Special Forces Riley Sloan is more than ready to start his new civilian life. No one to answer to. No one depending on him. No more dangerous rescues...he thought. After receiving a distress call he is sent on a recon mission to check on the one girl that's completely off limits and the only girl who ever made him question his loyalty. His best friend's little sister. She is the last girl he should want...but the only one he does. This could end up being the riskiest operation of his life.
She was the good girl...
Rachelle Thomas wouldn't hurt a fly. She is honest, kind and always sees the best in people. So she is completely blindsided when her fiancé dumps her for his pregnant 18 year old secretary. Confused and heartbroken she decides to head out of town to regroup. When her attempt to hide from the world worries her friends and family they send out a search party of one. Riley Sloan. Her brother's best friend and the star of all of her teenage (and adult) fantasies. The man Riley has grown into is even more tempting than the teen she once had a crush on. Chelle knows it's wrong to want him, but is tired of always doing the "right thing"...especially when Riley makes the "wrong thing" feel so right.
**Author's note: Each book in The Crossroads Series can be read as a stand-alone**
I wrote a great review for the first in this series but now tend to agree more with the person who reviewed after me. There is a ton of inner dialogue and too much explaining. The stories have potential but I felt like they were very redundant of the first story. Here is another couple who have been secretly crushing on each other for decades and everyone in their town knows it but them? Then they say that each novel can stand alone in the series but then they went into way too much detail to fill in what happened in the previous book. Not all of that info was needed to enjoy the current story. I find the lack of confidence/low self-esteem in the female characters a bit annoying. Also, certain phrases are repeated a lot. Such as "a look crossed her face but he couldn't quite discern it's meaning" and then in the next chapter "she didn't have time to figure out the meaning of his expression" ...and then that same type of phrase repeated at least six more times throughout the dialogue. I like the story and setting enough for a free read but not sure it was worth my money to buy the second.
I have enjoyed reading this 6th book of this author and all have been very well written and I each I have read in a days time because I could not put them down. If I have enough money I will-buy all of her books.
This book was hot, hot, hot! Loved it. I recommend this to everyone!
