After years of gravitating to douchebag players with no more to offer than a wildly good time and zero promises, single mom Drew has graduated to dating a real man. He's the responsible, mature kind—willing and able. To offer her and her daughter a real future.
Then along comes Nine.
More like a ten, is her first thought when introduced to the tatted-up, foul-mouthed, unapologetic player. The guy might've been her kryptonite five years ago.
But she has a child to think about now.
With every new encounter she has with Nine, she begins to realize there's so much more to him than just good looks and his bad boy image. She sees a vulnerability in him she never expected. Worse yet, he's sending out vibes that whisper of promises he's never made to any girl before.
Is she willing to trade in Mr. Perfect for someone who's one impetuous decision away from proving that her first impression may have been heartbreakingly spot on?

I have been waiting for this book what seems like forever and I finally got it only to finish in A DAY! Couldn't put it down. I now have yet another book crush. I seriously doubt anyone who is a fan of Elizabeth's books will be disappointed in this one. And now I can't wait for the next book in the series. I wont leave any spoilers and for those that are new to her books take a chance because you wont regret it.
Nine is part of the Boyle Heights series, but each book can be read as a standalone and I do truly mean this as this is my first book in this series and I started right here, with Mr. Nine himself. Love the way he got his nickname, though I agree with Drew he is more like a ten. Settling for Mr. Perfect isn’t always your best option when you are trying to be responsible for your daughter and future. I loved the way reality lingo was used to speak around the little one, it was quite laughable. I truly did want to shake Tad a little and just wanted to say, “here’s the sign, wake up!” Zion is the chosen one! Haha Rudy may have been a bad boy, but his heart was full of gold and those scenes with the littles was so heartfelt. Phoenix is a story I’d love to see more on and oh maybe a trip to Orlando is on the horizon. Drew loved her and how she was as a co-parent with her daughter. This book covered so many topics (sensitive to some and eye opening to others) and I loved the moms and dads (can’t forget them) and it was hilarious to see how society views others (Nine’s comments). Let me rephrase this, on some things others not so funny and quite sad really and kinda broke my heart, but it’s portrayed to how society is and hopefully down the road this will be acceptable. Love the person on the inside not on the outside! I could not agree more with Nine on his statements and trust me I did not take offense to any of them and I am both of these things (couldn’t think of a better noun). I will leave this vague as this to avoid spoilers. Loved seeing that while we see secondary characters from Boyle Heights or 5th Street that you are never felt like you are missing any piece of these characters in this story. I highly recommend this book to anyone enjoys wine and reading these types of stories. It is truly an eye opener all around for so many!
