SHE'S TAKING A WALK ON HIS WILD SIDE
Emma Rush can't remember a time when she didn't have a thing for Ryan Blake. Haven's resident bad boy is just so freakin' hot-with tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough rough-around-the-edges sexiness to melt all her self-control. Now that Emma's over being a "good girl," she needs a little help being naughty . . . and she knows just where to start.
Before Emma's brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything—including himself. When her brother doesn't come home, Ryan needs to turn his screwed-up life around to honor his pledge. But he knows he's still not the right kind of guy for someone as sweet as Emma. Only he can't stop wanting to be with her. Wanting her. Falling in love with a good girl may be the craziest risk this bad boy can take . . .
The whole “falling in love with my big brother’s best friend” trope is a long-time favorite of mine, thanks to a regular diet of Nora Roberts’ and other Silhouette, Harlequin, and Mills & Boon authors’ books as I was growing up. So I am looking forward to getting a read on Rachel Lacey’s Crazy for You, the second book in her Risking It All series, set in a small town named Haven (not the creeptastic Haven of Stephen King’s imaginings, it should be noted).
I haven’t read the first book in the series, but I’m quite looking forward to what promises to be a powder keg of tension between a sweet small-town miss who wants to take a walk on the wild side and the extreme sportsman and local casanova who has made a promise to protect her—even if that means protecting her from himself.
Keep reading for more details on the author and the series, plus an excerpt from the novel itself.
Excerpt from Crazy for You by Rachel Lacey
Ryan Blake held a bottle of Maker’s 46 in his right hand, a tumbler in his left. With a flick of his wrist, he tossed the bottle. It flipped once before landing back in his grip, top down, ready to pour. He filled the tumbler, set a napkin on the bar, and placed it in front of the brunette on the other side. “Bourbon, neat.”
“You’re good.” She picked up the glass and tipped it in his direction. “Not what I was expecting in this little bar in the middle of nowhere.” Read More »
