Goodreads Summary: It was a bad idea from the beginning.
He was my brother’s best friend and the definition of unavailable.
But I didn’t care.
I had loved him for as long as I could remember.
He was worth the risk. He was worth everything.
But then he broke my heart as easily as I fell for him. He watched me fall, spiraling out of control, and as I reached for him, he wasn’t there to catch me.
So I ran.
Four years later, I never expected to see him again.
He was still my brother’s best friend, and he was more unavailable than ever.
He looked every bit the bad boy I knew he was, covered in tattoos and a crooked smile.
Guarding my heart from him was top priority because Parker James was where good girls go to die.
Unfortunately for him, I wasn’t a good girl anymore.
My Rating: 4 stars
This was a very quick book for me. I read it in about 2 hours or less. It was very easy to stay interested. I kept into it because I wanted to see what happen in the flashbacks. The beginning is gripping and hell it even made me cry.
Parker and his boys are in Atlanta for his bachelor party, and they go and do what all guys do…go to a strip club. Shortly after the girl comes in and starts her routine, when Mason, who is Parker’s best friend, recognizes the girl…it’s his sister!
Her and Parker have a deep history, obviously. She was in the middle of his lap dance, and he was trying to get her take off the mask, not realizing it was his Livy, until Mason starts freaking out.
Naturally, being the big brother he is, Mason demands Livy to put her clothes on and go back home to Tennessee with them and when she is fired from her job, she has no choice.
Livy is shocked to find out that Parker is the one getting married. When she buddy’s with Brandon, who is Parker’s other best friend, he hires her to work at his tattoo shop. The only thing she didn’t realize is, Parker is part owner and also an artist in the same shop, meaning they will be spending everyday together. Trying out a new thing calling being “just friends”.
It is a must read for me! The only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5 is the ending. I wanted more! This is going to be a series, so maybe there will be a follow up book, I am not sure, but I am hoping that is the case.
