Synopsis from Goodreads:
My Thoughts...Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren't something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…
Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.
What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…
I really loved this book, I rated it 4 stars though, and here is why.... It's not done. To me, when you take a minor character from another series and give them a book, it really only needs to be one book, unless you draw out the story a little more. In my opinion, this book would have been best served to add another 50 pages and wrap it all up. I love Ms. Glines writing and I have enjoyed all her books that I have read so far. I know this is a bit harsh, but I think this is a ploy to make more money by leaving out just a little bit of the story so you can get another book and more sales from it. As much as I enjoyed this book I don't know that I will read the 2nd one because, in all honesty, I was completely happy with where this one ended.
I loved Woods in the Too Far series and I am glad we got to know him better in this one. He is one of those characters that just seems more mature than the other men in this series. I think it's because of what he does at the club. It just seems like the type of job that an older man would have. He is definitely a hottie though and he has some great lines in this book. This is one of my favorite.
"You are mine. Do you hear me? You are mine, Della Sloane. I will take care of you. Nothing is taking you away from me. Nothing."
It was also nice to see him stick up for himself and say to heck with what's expected of him. He knows what he wants and he is going to make sure that he gets it.
I liked Della right away. To say she lived a sheltered life is an understatement. She seems to be pretty well adjusted though, for someone who was raised the way she was. She reminded me of Blaire in a lot of ways. I connected to her immediately like I did with Blaire, then when I found out just all she had gone through I felt for her even more deeply. That's one thing I like about Ms. Glines books, she always makes me feel so much for her characters.
I was hoping we would see a little more of Rush and Blaire, but we did get a little more with Jace and I LOVED the introduction of Tripp. I can't wait to see more of him in the future.
Overall, I loved the book. If you are a fin of Ms. Glines work you will enjoy this one, no doubt. Also if you like New Adult Romance then you may want to pick this one up. Although, I am not sure why some of these classify as NA, I would put it in contemporary romance probably. There are some nice sexy love scenes so be forewarned!
