Rachel Gibson, New York Times best-selling author of Rescue Me, returns to Texas with a tale of what happens when a tough guy meets his match - and falls harder than a ton of red-hot bricks...
There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day.
Stella Leon's bartending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine, Beau Junger, decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister - the one with the perfect life - sent him. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride...and seduce Beau's military issue socks off....
The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: Swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot....

Nope - the heroine's personality was just not that interesting. Or was it the hero's personality that left little to be desired? Both. It was definitely both.
I like Rachel Gibson, even though her hockey team series was so much like Susan Elizabeth Phillips' football team series, I still think her writing can be cute and fun. This story was just boring.
I don't know, it's tough. Anna Fields would have been great. (RIP Anna) Tanya just has a lisp or something that she does with her s's. It's tough to get into a hero that has a lisp (especially one that isn't that interesting to begin with) you know what I mean?
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This book picks up right where Rescue Me ends. Sadie finds out she has a sister she didn't know about and her boyfriend Vince asks his friend Beau to find that sister and see if she wants to meet Sadie. Said sister is Stella who lives in Miami and works as a bartender. This is a road trip story. Stella and Beau embark on a trip from Miami to Lovett, TX to go meet Sadie. That road trip turns into a love story with lots and lots of sexual tension. I just wish it was a longer book. Really liked it!!
This book was funny and made me laugh. I really enjoy a good funny story.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
As the sequel to Rescue Me, I was disappointed in the lack of a believable storyline and character development. There were good parts - some very humorous situations - but this book seemed to me more like a rough draft than a finished product.
I loved this story about Stella, the smart and sassy heroine and Beau, the ex-Marine sent to bring her to Texas to meet her half sister. Together they make a sweet couple both with endearing, but irritating personality quirks. The story seemed to go by quickly because these two were so cute together and I kept wishing that the story was longer!
