Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.
Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.
Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.
But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.
Why did I pick this?
First of all, I just have to say that I didn't actually pick this. Raine actually picked me! I read her other book For Everly and reviewed it HERE. I thought that book was adorable so Raine offered me to be on this fabulous blog tour. Of course I accepted. I love Raine and I love this series. So, in a way, the book chose me for once. ;-)
What did I think?
Adorable. Warm. Lovely. Heart-touching. I thought that this book was a very sweet and heart warming book. Raine has a wonderful way with words and this book was really cute.
I'll start off with the characters...like I always do.
You first really get introduced to Evan. At first, you feel his horrible pain. You're not sure what his pain is caused from because he locks it up so deep but you know he has a big portion of it. That comes out across the page right away. As for looks, yeah....he's a hottie. Plus he's an Aussie?! Hel-lo...who doesn't like an Australian accent? C'mon... lol. Overall...he really is a deep character and I liked seeing him become a better person throughout the book.
Now, for Sierra, I liked how she was wise beyond her years. She sees things normal people don't really catch. Instead of seeing the outside when she first meets people, she sees the deeper side. I truly liked that about her. I will say that I did agree with her friends....she's too nice. I did want to shake her and say, "Stand up for yourself!!" But I did understand where she was coming from. She was such a sweet and caring character.
The overall story was very warm. I really enjoyed reading it. It was easy and flowed very nicely. My heart broke for Evan though. Time and time again. I loved him so much though. I liked that Cole and Everly made an appearance too. So very cute.
