Finding Redemption by Freia Hagen
Brian Curtis came from less than nothing. He and his wealthy best friend, Hunter, spend every night with a different woman, drinking and drugs. By day, Brian is a talented tattoo artist but by night he's a playboy bartender with a panty-dropping smile. He never sleeps with the same woman twice. He never remembers their names. And most importantly, he never gets emotionally involved.
Until Hunter's half sister shows up in town.
Shiloh Stone and her best friend Melanie decide to ditch the cold winters in Massachusetts for the warm beaches of southern California. After losing her mother to cancer, Shiloh decides to spend her senior year in college closer to her brother. But, first, a much needed summer break by the beach is in order. Shiloh has always been too busy for serious relationships and she definitely isn't the one night stand kind of girl.
Brian can think of a lot of reasons to stay away from Shiloh: she's his best friend's sister, she's classy, she comes from money, and she's way too good for him. But, from the minute he meets her, Brian is hooked. Getting involved with her would mean having to let down his guard, divulge his dirty secrets, and learn to love and be loved. Or it could just lead to nothing but heart ache. Can Brian open his heart or will he risk losing everything - including his life?
