Taking big risks had always been Archer Brook’s way of life. It’s what has to be done in order to get what you want, and he knew that better than anyone. Archer may have been born into a life of wealth and privilege, but he’d proven time and time again that his success was a result of his own true grit and determination. The savvy businessman was an experienced player in the game of life, always knowing when to ante up or when to cash out.
It was time to do both.
Burned out on the bright lights of Vegas, once the successful night club owner found the best of both worlds tucked away in a quiet Mississippi town, he never looked back.
That was until she walked into his bar.
Life has never been easy for Katy Vaughn. The preacher’s daughter turned small town rebel has seen her fair share of heartbreak, and she’s tired. Katy is done with men who have no idea what they want or how to treat a woman. She wants a real man. One who can give her everything she’s ever dreamed of. One who will give her everything she needs. Lovers of the past may have broken her heart, but they could never break her spirit.
There was only one man capable of that.
You never know when love will come along and change…everything.
I hadn’t read the first in the series but you don’t have to I was able to follow the characters without having any knowledge of the prior book.
I truly enjoyed Archer and Katy’s story. They both have some serious issues to work through but the beauty of it was seeing past each others faults to what lies beneath the surface. The book starts with a bang literally… Katy is warding off Archer’s advances because she wants more… And he.. doesn’t…
Archer has a past that cut him so deep he can’t see out of the dark place that it left him in when it comes to trust, love and women in general… But Katy challenges that at every turn. She’s strong willed and she has that never give up attitude. No matter how much he tries to tell her No she just won’t take that for an answer when it comes to him.
Katy was a great female heroine. She had a few flaws but overall I really could sympathize and empathize with her character. I really loved her brother he was protective of her and really tried to do what he thought was right for her. Though sometimes the heart just want what it wants…
There were a few flaws in this story that I found that left me feeling a little like I missed something important at one point. There is a lot of sex and don’t get me wrong it’s not an issue with the act, it was the fact at times I felt like the storyline was a little lacking and needed more.
Overall though this is still a good read and I’m wanting to see what K. Langston has in store for us next in this series. I give this one 4 stars.
K has worked in property management for the last decade.
She enjoys writing, reading and music.
Writing has given K. the release she’s been craving all of these years. An outlet to fully express herself the way she wants to, the way she needs to.
Her life was forever changed the moment she wrote that first line.
