Maybe driving home after a few (or more) shots of tequila had been a bad idea, but hell, he did it all the time. The cops had to have been freaking bored to have pulled him over. He wasn’t even swerving! That’s Cage York’s story and he’s sticking to it.

Unfortunately, his baseball coach isn’t buying it. Cage has a free ride to the local junior college for baseball — or he did, until he’d gotten a DUI. Now, Cage has to decide: does he drop out and give up his dream of getting noticed by a college in the SEC, and possibly making it into the Major Leagues — or does he give in to his coach’s demands and spend his summer baling hay?

Eva Brooks planned out her life step by step when she was eight years old. Not once over the years had she lost sight of her goals. Josh Beasley, her next door neighbor, had been the center of those goals. He’d been her first boyfriend at seven, her first kiss at ten, her first date at fifteen, and her first tragedy at eighteen. The moment she’d received the phone call from Josh’s mother saying he’d been killed along with four other soldiers just north of Baghdad, Eva’s carefully planned life imploded in the worst way possible.

Cage isn’t real happy with his closet-sized bedroom in the back of a foul smelling barn, or his daily interactions with cows, but he knows that if he doesn’t make his coach happy then he can kiss his scholarship goodbye. Only a sick and twisted man would decide his punishment was to be working on a farm all summer. No hot babes in bikinis waiting to meet a Southern boy to make her vacation complete. Just him and the damned cows.

Oh — and an uptight, snarky brunette with the biggest blue eyes he’s every seen. But she doesn’t count, because as hard as he’s tried to charm her out of her panties – he’s pretty sure she’d rather see him hung from the rafters than let him get a taste of her pretty little lips.

My Rating: 5 stars!!!!

My Thoughts:

WOW! Um…by far the BEST Abbi Glines book yet! AHH! I can’t even get over how amazingly, fabulously perfect this book was!! I’ve been on quite a Glines books reading spree for the last week and this book is, with out a doubt, my favorite!

Eva has faced more heartbreak than anyone ever should. She’s fragile and angry and just plain sad. Then Cage comes charging into her life and nothing is the same. He pushes her buttons and gets under skin even if she doesn’t want him too.

Cage is an infamous player but once he meets Eva, all his old ways are behind him. Cage helps Eva to move forward in her life and to find happiness, something that no one else has been able to do. Everyone says that he isn’t right for her, but they don’t see that he is exactly what she needs and so they quickly fall in love even though neither of them really realizes it at first. Their love is both heartwarming and breathtaking!

Again the story is told from both POVs so you can certainly feel the tension and desire that rolls off both Cage and Eva. It just ridiculous! Although how could it not be when Cage is so absolutely swoon-worthy! Really, there is one word to describe this book: steamy! That being said this is definitely a mature young adult read.

I seriously loved this book and it’s definitely now one of my favorites. I plan on reading it multiple times and I can’t wait for the next sequel to come out and see how it compares to this breathtaking story!

This is a DEFINITE must read!
