I was an ex-con. A convicted killer. And I knew that’s all anyone would ever see me as. At least I thought so…until I met her…
When recent parolee Bobby Cantrell loses yet another job, he resigns himself to the usual struggle of finding a place willing to take a chance on someone with his past. Then, without warning, a gorgeous blonde careens into his life and everything changes.
Carly Prince. Gorgeous. Untouchable. Everything Bobby could ever want and knows he can never have.
Except, maybe, he’s finally found someone who sees the good inside him, something even he can’t see.
What he can’t do, however, is escape from his past. A past that now threatens to destroy the new life he’s building for himself…and threatens people he’s come to care about. Can he save them, or will he have more blood on his hands?
Everyone has heard the phrase… “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. Well, I judged this book by its cover, because I LOVED the cover. I had never read anything by these authors so I really knew nothing about it what their writing style was like, or if they were any good. Well… I am so glad the cover grabbed me…because the story was FANTASTIC!
It is a story told by the Ex-Con, Bobby Cantrell! And don’t even think about calling him Robert, or he will put you in his place.
You find out why he was in prison and throughout the story, you also find out what happens to him while he is in prison.
Bobby crashes into Carly Prince and she changes his world.
“If and when I decide to get naked with you, it won’t be because you want to use me as a distraction, or forget what’s cluttering up your head, Bobby Cantrell.”
What starts off as Bobby just trying to protect her, turns into him WANTING her.
While I read this, you really do feel sorry for Bobby. Yes, he is a bad a$$…but he does have feelings and poor Carly lives a life with cameras always pointing at her, trying to get the next best story on her, but with Bobby around, she seems to be able to deal with it much better.
Bobby learns to trust others, and is surrounded by others who are pulling for him.
“How in the world had I found these people who didn’t react normally when I told them who I was or what I’d done?”
It really was a different type of storyline. It has some mystery, love, and some steamy sex.
