Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.
Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.
The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.
After getting to know Hudson a little bit in Charged, not to mention Poppy from Rowdy and Built, this is the book I am soooooo looking forward to, even though with it, one of my favorite series that I discovered this year will be coming to an end. The book series that got me so much more into tattooed men than I had already been. The series that helped me to be so excited about getting to meet the author at NOLA StoryCon back at the beginning of October. Have to share that picture. :-)
While normally I would adore a cover like this, it's missing one thing that I love on all of Jay's covers, a hot guy to drool over, I mean you can see tattoos on him, but just barely. Other than that I think it is a perfect cover to end this series. This will probably also show up as a WOW for me sometime early in 2017.
