A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romance from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn.
Brains and a badass attitude. That’s all troublemaker Leah Camacho took with her when she left Catfish Creek. She’d promised herself she’d never go back, but when the invite to her tenth high school reunion arrived along with the chance to show everyone who doubted her what a success she’s made of herself, she couldn’t resist. However, when she discovers a 15-carat, stolen diamond in her rental car’s glove box, there’s only one man she can turn to for help—the same sexy, stubborn domineering man who’d smashed her heart all those years ago.
Sheriff Drew Jackson knew a long time ago that Leah Camacho was nothing but trouble and has sworn to never get caught up in her again—no matter how damn sexy she is or how badly he’d failed to forget her. But, when the woman who test drove his heart right into a concrete wall rolls into Catfish Creek with some serious bad guys on her tail, it’s up to him to keep her safe—even if that means guarding her hot bod 24/7 without giving into temptation or losing his mind.
Trouble was Avery Flynn at her Avery Flynn-est. And I mean that as a compliment. I haven’t worked my way through her entire backlist yet, but I’m getting there, and so far I’ve really enjoyed and heartily recommended everything I’ve read.
This is the second book in the Bad Boys Homecoming series, though it’s definitely readable as a standalone. Also, in this case, it was the bad girl coming home, not the bad boy. Leah Comacho is coming back to Catfish Creek for the first time since graduation to attend her ten-year high school reunion. She didn’t have a great time in high school; she was stuck between two of the main groups and never really fit in anywhere. She’s mainly back for 2 things – she wants to show everyone that she’s not just trouble, and she wants Drew Jackson. Even though she would never admit it, even to herself.
Drew is on his way out of Catfish Creek, again, just as soon as he finishes his his tenure as sheriff and gets through this high school reunion. He hadn’t really expected to see Leah, who’s definitely the one who got away, but once he does, he’s not going to let her out of his sight, especially once he realizes she’s in danger.
Drew and Leah were hot. So hot. And also really funny, and infuriating, and full of great banter. I don’t want to say too much, because this is just coming out and I think you should pick it up and read it for yourself. But please, do yourself a favor and do it.
