A crush is just a fantasy. The real thing packs some serious heat.
When Cynthia Donnelly lays eyes on her high school crush at her brother's wedding rehearsal, she regrets her self-imposed one-year moratorium on dating. If possible, he's even hotter now than when they were teens.
Back in school, Shane made a point to ignore his best friend's cute, sassy little sister. Now that she's grown into an incredibly sexy woman full of Irish spunk, resisting her is out of the question. Besides, in his book all "hands off" rules have expired.
One sizzling night together should have been enough. Instead the heat rises, tempting Cyn to take a chance on a long-distance relationship and making Shane consider pulling up stakes and moving back to LA.Cyn's recently dumped ex, however, has other ideas. His quest to get her back escalates into violence, shattering Cyn's faith in herself and in anyone of the male persuasion - and leaving Shane with his work cut out for him to repair the damage or lose his shot at a once-in-a-lifetime love.
Warning: This book contains a physical assault. Buckle up for a bumpy emotional journey with the characters as they fall apart and then slowly find their way to healing and to each other. You might get angry or tearful along the way, you may even get frustrated, but as with any good love story, it'll be worth it in the end.
