Angela Watts loved being the life of a party. Until one night changed everything.
Now, she just wants a fresh start. With one semester left of college, she's intent on finishing it and moving on. That means no more distractions and no more boys. Especially womanizer's like Jackson. His cocky smile and mesmerizing eyes ignite her like none other. Which is exactly why she vows to stay away from him. Except he's always there when she needs him. His hungry kisses and fiery touch inflame her. She hadn't wanted a relationship, but in his arms, she is safe again.
Jackson Clark f*cked up. He failed the only job he'd had, and that failure ruined Angela's life. Even though he didn't have a hand in what happened, he's drowning in guilt. Then, he sees Angela again, and he becomes the protector he should have been. The heat between them is undeniable. For the first time he doesn't only want a tight little body and juicy mouth, but her heart too.
But one thought lingers: if Angela knew the role Jackson played in her downfall, would she still want him?
I was grateful for the chance to read the ARC of this story - and grateful that Holly Dodd re-sent it to my kindle no less than 4 times in order to make sure I got it :)
This story was pretty much how I expected it to go - after reading the first two books - In the second book, we saw Mia and Regi enter the party to find Mia's sister drugged and stumbled onto Angela who had been drugged as well -
That's where this story starts off - the night of the party
"That Night" changed both Angela and Jackson - See Jackson was at the party, living it up and having fun - only that wasn;t what he was supposed to be doing - the guilt after seeing Angela the way he saw her tore him apart - Jackson is a jock - both football and baseball star, but he's also in school studying to be a Law Enforcer - and with it are side jobs - such as self-defense classes. About a week after the party - Jo had talked Angela into trying out a self-defence class. just to try to get some self-confidence back into her. And that's where she saw Jackson. She recognized his eyes from "that night" but couldn't' remember enough about that night to know why she recognized his eyes.... But Jackson knew.... The story is a sweet struggle - they're both trying to move on, change their ways about how they use to act and try to live a normal life.But they both have a draw to each other that they can't seem to figure out - The change in Angela is tremendous! I have a lot of respect for her in this story :) Really a cute story and an awesome Series :)
