He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.
It took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese Spencer shattered it. But she did. Now, years later, strong and independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the Altman American Dance Theater. Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to reach her goal.
That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t refuse. In exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her an audition with the famous dance troupe. All Kennedy has to do is keep her head down, work hard and resist Reese. That sounds easy enough, right?
Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy. Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one. It took him years to forget about her before, so this time he has a plan. It’s simple: Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of his system, move on with his life. That sounds easy enough, right?
But the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of her. To save her. Even if he has to save her from himself.
** 3.5/4 STARS **
I didn't know what to expect from Reese. I kind of thought since he was Hemi's brother that I was going to love him as much as I love Hemi. Reese is definitely a rich, strong male who is used to getting his way and having females throw themselves at him. I didn't find him nearly as dreamy as Hemi and thought he was too arrogant and cocky.
I really liked Kennedy though. Even though she still had feelings for Reese, he had hurt her too much in the past and she was not willing to just go running back into his arms. I loved how she was so strong and independent and didn't easily give in to Reese...she made him work for it.
I'm glad I got to meet Reese and Kennedy but I wish there would've been more than a brief encounter with Hemi and Sloane. I've really enjoyed this series so far and I can not wait for the next book.
