“Addictive like all Kylie Scott books, you’ll swoon, laugh, ache, put your life on hold, and compulsively read until the wee hours of the night—only to reread the whole thing the next morning. Perfection!” – Katy Evans, New York Times bestselling author
Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.
Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete was left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.
Seven years later, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back those old feelings.

Bartender and all round bad boy, Eric Collins, has come to a crossroads. It’s time to take life seriously and maybe even attempt to settle down. If only the person he was hoping to settle down with didn’t turn out to be pregnant.
Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labor during a snowstorm and her car slides on some ice, however, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.
There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh Eric your man whoring ways are coming to an end my friend!!
Eric..we all remember Eric right??? He is part owner of the Dive Bar and certainly has no issue with the ladies. He doesn’t mind all the attention he gets from his friends, or does he?? Maybe man whoring is not all he is good for?? Maybe, just maybe he wants *Gasp* More??? Eric IS a good guy but he just cant seem to keep it in his pants so to say. What eligible, good looking guy would??? But then SHE arrives into town and everything changes.
Jean leaves Florida because she need a new life plan. Jean goes to the Bar to meet her new friend Nell who is also going to help her start her life over. When Eric sees Jean he is all “Hey How You Dion’?” until the baby bump pops out from under the table…yikes.
Since the two are going to be neighbors they quickly find a friendship of sorts but when the baby comes he see a new side to both of them and their new found feelings.
Eric…what can I say? I love a naughty guy who gets into trouble but I also loved seeing the character growth from the books until his book.
I received a copy of this book via netgalley for an honest review.
Yes, it is finally Eric’s story. Eric is Joe’s brother and if you read Dirty or Twist you are sure to remember him. I am so ready to see him redeemed not sure if that is possible but if it can be done Kylie will do it. I wasn’t sure about Eric when I read Dirty and Twist I mean yes he is easy going, an all about me kind of guy and a manwhore. However, I stilled wanted to see if he would be the same kind of guy when he was finally face to face with his one. I could not wait for him to meet his match and settle down. Then again maybe he would always be this way but man I hoped I was right on this.
Eric is getting it from all angles. His care free attitude toward woman is causing his friends who are beginning to settle down to come down on him hard. He decides he is going to give the stick with one girl thing a try. He happens to choose a new face that walked into the bar only thing is he didn’t realize he was getting a little more than he bargained for when he set his eyes on Jean.
Jean came to Coeur D’Alene so she could make a new start for herself and her baby. She meets Eric at the bar where he attempts to hit on her. This only causes a bit of friction because Jean just happens to be Nell’s online friend. I loved Jean she was so sweet. The instant chemistry between Jena and Eric was amazing. Even with that instant chemistry Eric decides to back off and go the friend route when he finds out she is pregnant.
I fell harder for Eric when he was reading the baby books to be able to help Jean when she needed him. I absolutely loved seeing this side of Eric. Seeing Eric and Jean baby bonding was so heartwarming. Being able to see the Stage Dive guys at the party was great, oh Mal you never let me down for a good laugh.
