Rie Warren has done it to me again! Except this is a novella so I finished it faster then the first 2 books in the series. Just like the other books in the series there is 1 fine sexy man with a motorcycle in it and his princess.
Avery needs to get out of her dorm room. As like in yesterday! She finds an article for a room to rent and gets on her bicycle and goes. She was not prepared for who was going to open the door once she got there.
Jase Everly opens his door to a pretty girl. Not only was she pretty but is was obvious to anybody looking at her that she was scared. Terrified actually. She wearing baggy clothes and is skittish. You def can't touch her. Jase instantly wants to save her.
Avery doesn't know anything about Jase except what she's heard about him. Rich, he doesn't do girlfriends but that doesn't mean he doesn't get girls. When she moves in she learns a few things about him. He is very quick to help her. He moves her out of the dorm so she don't have to go back there. Jase cooks her meals and no matter how many times she tries to pay him rent. He refuses to take it.
Jase & Avery quickly get into a nice routine. Jase made sure to do everything he could to make Avery feel safe. They also had their fare shares of giving it to each other good. I mean who wouldn't love eating breakfast every morning with a 1/2 naked Jase sitting across from her? Avery herself had Jase seeing red on a constant basis.
Both Jase and Avery are hiding secrets. And, let me tell you there both pretty big secrets! Even through all the secrets that they were keeping their attraction was something that couldn't be kept secret. They both tried to fight it. Avery because she wasn't physically or emotionally ready. Or so she thinks. And, Jase doesn't think he's good enough for her. Then, they just couldn't hold back anymore. And, man oh man! These 2 are hot.
These 2 didn't start off as friends. Then Jase became a protector for Avery. They casually start a friendship that turns into so much more. I believe they saved each other. I really loved this book. Rie handled all the hard topics perfect. She left nothing undone. Now, if she had Jase work at Stone's garage in the next book. Man, I'd be over the moon happy!! Hey, a girl can dream can't she.
