Goodreads Summary: Mia Monroe is running. Running from a person she doesn’t ever want to find her. Running from a past she doesn’t ever want anyone to know. Desperate to find a future, that yesterday, she could only dream of having.
Jordan Matthews likes easy. Easy women. Easy life.
Then he meets Mia.
She’s damaged, troubled and has more baggage than any person can carry. But the more Jordan gets to know Mia-for the first time in his life-he finds himself wanting to try hard for something … for someone … for her.
And then life isn’t so easy anymore.
Jordan is everything Mia shouldn’t want. A whole bunch of dirty hotness, tattooed, cocky bad boy, who made his money at poker tables and picked his women up in bars. Yet, Mia finds herself falling for him. Then the past Mia was running from, quickly starts to catch up with her. Because that’s the problem with running … you have to stop sometime.
And when you stop, you get caught.
My Review: When you are told that your father didn’t make it and you are happy about that, you know that there is more to the story. Mia was sure that the death of her abusive father meant freedom and happiness. Only she was wrong. She was lead down a similar path with her first ever boyfriend. She had to get away. She left her life in Boston, she left her clothes and her home. She embarks on a journey to find her mother that had left her all alone with her crazy father who had told her that her mother was dead.
When she reached her destination she meets Jordan, who agrees to help her find her mother. Only after a few weeks does he find out the truth. And boy, it’s a doozy! You will want to stick around for the curveball in this one.
