After surviving a horrific car accident twelve years ago, that claimed the lives of her mother and brother, heiress to the multi-billion dollar Montgomery Empire, Evangeline, promised never to go back to the city filled with memories of her tragic past. However, after an unexpected event, Evangeline reluctantly finds herself back in New York City.
Since the accident, Evangeline has feared the media attention that comes with having the Montgomery name, and would give everything up to bring back her loved ones. Delicate and camera shy, the last person she needs in her life is New York Yankees hotshot, Ryan Fox.
Witty and extremely arrogant, the notorious bad boy is well-versed at playing the game both on and off the field. Ryan isn’t fazed by the media circus following his every move and couldn’t be anymore different to the quiet, shy girl that is Evangeline. Everything about him screams trouble with a capital T, but it’s away from the cameras that Evangeline begins to see the real man hiding behind the cocky façade— one that is haunted by a dark and terrible secret.
Life led them to one another, but will further events and opening up about their past bring them closer, or tear them apart and have them sliding into darkness all over again?
Sexy New York Yankees pitcher—Check! His sultry, insatiable sexual appetite—Check! Dirty talker behind closed doors—Double Check! And the one male that cannot be tamed, no matter how hard you try to break him outta his man whore ways, except for meeting that one girl that changes everything—Triple Check!
“Panic begins to set in. I was less than an hour away from touching down in New York. I hadn’t been back to the East Coast in twelve years and had no plans of ever returning.”
Evangeline Rupert despises NYC for what is represents to her and her family. She relives nightmares of the city day in and day out but is forced to return because he father is dying. She should visit one last time to at least see him after not hearing or visiting him in those 12 years or at least she tells herself.
His name is Ryan Fox. Remember that name because I have been dreaming of him since I stopped reading this. I cannot get him out of my fantasies; that is how much of an effect he has had on me, anyways…
“My eyes widened when I realized just how striking this guy’s face was up close. Abercrombie and Fitch models had nothing on the roguishly handsome stranger standing right in front of me! Suddenly it hit me, I had seen him before! His face and his half naked body were plastered on the sides of buses and stuck to large billboards on nearly every building in Manhattan.”
God, what I wouldn’t give to live near Evangaline Rupert’s apartment.
Evangeline’s father does eventually pass, without her telling him goodbye. But on a positive note, she is not alone when she gets the call about her father. Ryan whom she just met is the one she eventually breaks down to about her father and what cheers her up is the two of them going to a bar for some tequila shots. So after one final shot of the evening and a lot of sexual tension…
”His mouth was on mine. His kisses were powerful and hungry, leaving my body aching for more. I think we need to get out of here, before I take you right here on this table.”
What I wouldn’t give to be in her situation—FUCK! ☺
What Evan didn’t expect was to fall for the cocky and sexy as hell Ryan Fox who also faces his own demons.
“Nothing was going to be okay. Deep down I was scared as hell. I had no way of fixing this. How could I fix something when I wasn’t whole myself.”
Will they both be able to help each other even though neither of them felt as if they could be fixed? Can they be the ones to heal one another?
If not for the sexy, New York Yankees pitcher then at least YOU.MUST.GET.THIS for my second favorite part, the down and dirty sex. BOW, CHICA, BOW WOW bitches!
