Review by Twinsie Angie

I bought this book and listened to the audio book.

This is a sweet insta love story about town bad boy Reese who comes home after a log absence to recoup after a bad fight.  He is stunned stupid to see the one women he cant seems to shake out of his system still looking as beautiful as he remembered.

Lilly has always had a crush on town bad boy Reese but knew he was not interested in her in any way.  When he comes back to town and starts kissing her ear, she is confused because how can the only person she ever loved be here in town and kissing her ear!!!

The love story is insta love in the fact it moves very quickly, and they are professing their love for one another.  They are trying to hide the relationship from her father who is the town preacher and does not approve.  Reese also worries about Lilly’s reputation in the small town if things get out about what they are doing in the evening *wink*

The couple have a few things to work out like is Reese leaving when he rehabs his injury, what happens when his MMA promoter comes back and what happens when a secret is soon spilled about Lilly!!

If you enjoy insta love stories you will enjoy this book.

I will saw this narration isn’t my favorite.  I almost wonder if I might have enjoyed the book more with me reading vs listening to his voice.
