A noise comes. A shadow rears up in the dark. I scream. “What the hell?” Panic claws my chest and I scream again, reaching blindly for something to fight him off. Squatters and junkies and all kinds of dangerous men fill my mind as my hand closes around something solid on the hall table and I swing with everything I’ve got. “Goddamn!” The figure reels back, stumbling against the wall. “Get away from me!” I cry, shaking. My heart is racing so fast I think it might beat right out of my chest. I grip the object in my hand tighter. “Don’t touch me!” “I’m not trying to touch you!” The man roars, angry. “I just want to know what you’re doing breaking into my goddamn house!” The light flips on. I reel back, blinded by the sudden glare, but as the daze clears and my eyes flick back into focus, I see the man in front of me for the first time. I stop breathing. He’s half-naked, that’s the first thing I notice. Jesus, his body is like nothing I’ve ever seen before: tanned bronze and chiselled like a Greek god, but not like the guys I’ve dated, all waxed and pumped from hours at a fancy gym. This guy is real, raw, all muscle and power, with web of dark tattoos snaking over the bicep of his right arm. I feel a flush roll through me, hot with prickling awareness, but I can’t look away as I take in his tight, sculpted six-pack abs, and the trail of dark hair leading down to the waistband of his navy briefs... “Don’t mind me, darlin’.” his voice comes. “Any time you’re done looking...” I snap my eyes up to his face, blushing. Then I look at him for real and it all clicks into place. “Oh,” My heart clenches in my chest as I recognize him for the first time. “It’s you.” Unshaven face. Messy mahogany bed-head hair. And a pair of stormy ocean-blue eyes scowling at me like I’m the last person on earth he wants to see. And I can say, the feeling is entirely mutual. “It’s me.” Garrett Sawyer agrees in a low, Southern drawl. He strides over and snatches the vase from my hand, setting it down on the table with a thud. “Now, you want to tell me what the hell you’re doing creeping around my house at three in the goddamn morning?”
****I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review for Nerd Alert Book Love Blog****
Carina MacKenzie is a high maintenance, self absorbed, ice queen, or is she? After one too many physical fights with her fiance, Alex, Carina finally realizes she is not living the perfect life she has always dreamed of. She does the only thing she can think of now, she flees in the middle of the night. She heads straight for Beachwood Bay, the only real place she has ever felt safe.
"...I've spent my whole life chasing perfection: perfect looks, perfect man, perfect home. But in one brutal moment, I realized it was all just a beautiful lie..."
Garrett Sawyer is a man of mystery. No one knows anything about his life prior to him coming to Beachwood Bay and that's how he plans on keeping it. He lives his life simple now, running his bar and living by his three strikes your out roll. Never sleeping with the same woman more than 3 times, so there are never any romantic complications. But life's about to change for him when he catches Carina crawling through the kitchen window of the beach house.
"...This life didn't just happen to you. You fought to make it happen. You earned it. And I thank God every day that you stumbled into my house in the middle of the night and scared the living day lights out of me..."
Things only got harder for Carina when her father shows up in town and wants to physically drag her back to Alex for his own selfish reasons. Now destroyed by the two most important men in her life, Carina finally breaks. Garrett feels the need to protect her and help her put herself back together. But what will happen as the chemistry between Carina and Garrett steadily builds? Can Carina start her life over again? Can she repair what is broken with her sister Juliet? And what will happen that will cause Garrett to snap and reveal his past to Carina? Can these two pick each other up and put the pieces back together or will their pasts destroy it all?
I'm sorry but I hated Carina and what she did to her sister Juliet and their mother in the first 2 books. But as her story is being told your heart aches for her and everything she's been through. This is my favorite book in this series so far. I loved Juliet and Emerson's story so much but I can relate to Carina on a whole different level. And Garrett, oh sweet and sexy Garrett, his story is just so heartbreaking and sad and it makes you love him all the more. I absolutely love this series and think Melody Grace is just getting better and better. I gladly give this book a Nerd Alert A++ or 5 stars! July can't come soon enough, I can't wait for Uninhibited!
