Owen Riggins is too good to be true. The best things in life usually are. He’s good looking, generous and interested in me. Too bad someone like him and someone like me aren’t’ meant to be together.
He’s used to the best things in life, and I’ve grown up with the worst. Building a better life means working hard and staying on track, not falling for some sexy suit with a brooding stare who is just passing through.
Life has taught me not to trust, and even though I want him more than anything, I don’t need his charity or his love…
When a friend sends me to Florida to scout out a hotel, it’s the gorgeous waitress with a shy smile and worn-out shoes I can’t take my eyes off of.
Layla Massey is quiet, beautiful, and in need of a little help- even if she won’t admit it. A generous tip was meant to buy her some suitable shoes, not to buy her love. I want to earn that all on my own.
I’m used to women throwing themselves at me, the name, the money… but she wants neither. It makes me want her all the more.
Little by little, she opens up and piece by piece, she’s taking my heart.
I really enjoyed the first title in this series, so I was excited to get Layla and Owen's story.
It definitely was as fun as I was hoping it would be. I am really enjoying getting to know all of the characters and I admit I love stories where the characters in the previous book/s are in the next one, so this was a lot of fun.
I also loved how all in Owen was, from the beginning and their first meeting. Sometimes the angst is fun, but other times it's great to watch a character who knows what he wants do what it takes to make it happen.
There was nothing crazy about this one, it was just 2 people who definitely should be together figuring out how to make that happen, and it was enjoyable. While it is the 2nd in a series (3rd if you count the prequel) you can definitely read and enjoy this as a standalone.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
