Release Date: March 4, 2021
You don’t fall for your brother’s high school sweetheart, your boss’s daughter, or your ex-wife’s best friend. Especially when they’re all the same woman.
Under Brick Callan’s mile-wide chest beats a loyal heart with a few cracks in it. He’s the steadfast, overprotective type. Especially when it comes to the one woman he can never have. It’s a long, complicated history punctuated by fights, friendship, family, and an attraction that strains his iron willpower.
When Remi Ford returns to Mackinac Island in the dead of winter with a secret, Brick makes it his mission to find out what put the shadows in those green eyes. Even if it means breaking down the walls he’s built between them. Even if it means falling for the one girl he’ll never get over.
The free-spirited artist just needs to lay low for a few weeks so she can figure a way out of this nightmare. She’s definitely not staying. Not when the man who broke her teenage heart into splinters keeps showing up at her parents’ dinner table. Remi doesn’t need broody, bearded Brick riding to her rescue…again. Not when it will put them both in danger, costing them much more than their hearts.
Author’s Note: Frenemies-to-lovers. Opposites attract. Slow burn. Girl in danger. Glorious, glorious banter. Fighting as foreplay. Small-town shenanigans. Big, grumpy, pining, overprotective hero. Wild-child, trouble-finding heroine who keeps on pushing the hero’s buttons. Steam Level: Lava. Suspense: Nail-biting. Feels: Big time.
Another great Lucy Score book. This is a complete standalone with brand new characters and a brand new location. In this book you will get a lot of the same humor and great characters that you expected from this author’s books. What is different from her other books is the suspense element.
Brick is one of those grumpy, overprotective heroes with a tough outer shell but with a soft, warm center. You can’t help but fall in love with him and swoon at all the times he steps in to save the day. Remi is an artist that has synesthesia (I love that synesthesia is part of who she is). She is likeable, charming, and gregarious. She is strong and a little on the stubborn side. These two characters have a complicated history, and there is a lot for them to work through as a couple. There are definitely many bumps along the road in their relationship both past and present. These two have a lot of chemistry and great banter. The progression of their relationship was both fun and emotional to read.
The suspense element was done very well. There are times you will not be able to put the book down because you want to know what happens next. There are great secondary characters who just add even more to this book. Whether you are new to this author or a long time fan, this is a great story and worth checking out.
