Ryan Evans has been caught with his pants down—literally. This footballer is known for scoring—on and off the field—but this time, he’s in over his head. His take-no-prisoners publicist, Kennedy Cole, seems to think hiding out in Maine is the best solution but he’s not going willingly.
Elodie Stewart is fresh off a divorce and busy running a thriving bed and breakfast in the small town of Lilac Harbor, Maine. The last thing she wants under her roof is a moody, broody, problem child player.
After a rough start, they discover a mutual attraction they can’t ignore. The last thing Elodie needs after her failed relationship is a playboy hookup, and Ryan doesn’t need the distraction. But, seclusion has a tendency to bring people together. And together, they just may find the reclamation they need.
This book reads like something from the headlines.A PR disaster sends the hero to Lilac Harbor to hide out from headlines. Sending him to his Pr’s best friend bed and breakfast probably wasn’t the best idea.
Elodie may be sweet but she isn’t playing games with Ryan at first. She has no time for people like Ryan you would think given her recent history. However Ryan manages in his own way to wiggle into Elodie’s mind and heart as he seeks her out.
He may not be the best guy at the start and their first encounter set the town for a fun novel. The nice touch was including Lilac Harbor which is the author’s own creation and allowed to see both worlds collide. We got the small town feel meets Kennedy was plenty of entertainment in this book and I enjoyed this take on the Salvation world.
