Can a rebel ever change his ways?
Being a single mother and successful florist is tough, especially when your new next-door neighbor is the man who shattered your heart. Eight years ago, bad boy James Bracken walked away from Adrian Carlton…and their unborn child. Now he's back. And Adrian's desire to protect her son from the truth of his biological father isn't enough to hide the wild blue eyes of father and son, or to keep Adrian from surrendering to the raw passion between her and James. But is he truly the changed man he claims to be? Maybe this time his rebel heart really is home to stay.
Completely enjoyed this book. Adrian's life is simple and her son is the center of it. When a new neighbor moves next door, she is shocked to see James. James left town years before and not under the best circumstances. He knew he left her behind, but what he didn't know was he left a child as well. Now that he is back, Adrian is in a panic because there is no way she can hide her son's heritage as soon as James sees him. She also can't deny the pull James still has on her.
We met Adrian in some of the author's earlier books and are reminded of her horrid, abusive ex-husband. Now, with James back in her life, she is scared on a different level, but still scared. Her friends are supportive but also give her the truth. James left because he thought it was best for everyone if he wasn't in their lives any longer. He had no idea Adrian was pregnant when he left, but he also cannot deny the little boy that looks just like him. He will have to prove to Adrian, and her over protective friends, that he has changed and he will always be there for them.
This is a 4/5. I really like this series and how close these women (and now their men) are!
