The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books continues her delightfully sexy Saints of Denver series.Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes. Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him. The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.
Just when you think your heart has been crushed and put back together again with one couple, in steps another one. I knew Poppy’s story was coming, just didn’t even imagine that it would be this good! Honestly, I just don’t know how Jay can come up with such incredible story lines. Her writing “super power” is one word, connections. The way she weaves her characters together in books and presents to readers something so new and unexpected each time. But somewhere down the line she already made us fall in love with a character whose story wasn’t even told yet. It’s all about connections. Connections of friends, family, life experiences, paired, molded and created into series that we as readers simply can’t resist. Wheeler and Poppy are perfect for each other, however it’s the story and journey to get to that point of discovery that was truly amazing throughout the entire read. Jay does not hold back. Creativity, rediscovery and moments in the story that you never see coming made this by far my favorite read thus far the summer.
