What a week! It’s been a great reading week for me so I’m thrilled to be reading again because I was in the worst reading slump this summer. I wasn’t in the mood for anything so I watched a shit ton of tv shows.
My nephews are playing football so our family is all about Friday and Saturday night lights these days. I haven’t been a very big football fan because L.A. didn’t have a football team for the longest time and I’m a hometown supporter (The Rams and the Chargers don’t count since, for most of my adult life, they were from St. Louis and San Diego) but I’m a huge North High football and Wilmington “Bang Bang” Pilot Gang fan now…:)
Both Chase (North High) and Brody (Pilots Pop Warner) won their games this week so woo hoo for us. It’s also volleyball time for our family since my niece Makaela plays for North High. I can’t wait to see her play. She’s my best friend in our family.
That’s about it for my week on the personal front…now, the books!
What I’m Currently Reading
The most beautiful man I’ve ever seen is the one who can ruin everything…
The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker, I know he’ll be trouble. With his smug grin, hot Aussie accent and thousand dollar shoes, he’s just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants.
And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle’s estate.
I can’t afford either one. I’m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system. He may have money and charm on his side, but I have something even more powerful — pure desperation. This temp job at his mother’s company can become a full-time job for me. It has to.
But when Callan’s eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations. His piercing gaze finds the fun, optimistic girl I used to be and not the tired person I’ve become.
And it works–if only for a moment. Our night together was a mistake. I can’t afford to get sucked into his high-powered family’s treachery. But the closer I get to Callan, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can’t forget this is temporary. He’s temporary. I have too much to lose.
Too bad my foolish heart didn’t get the memo…
I got this for review and I’m super excited to jump into it because I adore all things new Sarina Bowen and Sarah Mayberry is an author that I’ve read an enjoyed before so I just know that I’ll enjoy the heck out of this one.
