Knox (Chicago Blaze #4) by Brenda Rothert
Getting ditched at the altar is nothing compared to being humiliated there in front of three hundred shocked guests. Apparently I’m no good at spotting the signs your man’s a cheating liar. So I set off solo on my honeymoon to Hawaii, where I realize I’ve got this life thing down just fine on my own.
Friendships and laughter? Yes.
But relationships? Hell no. Never again.
I’m a man of few words. My reputation as a moody prick is deserved, but only the handful of people who really know me see the man beneath the professional mask.
I’m a protector. A warrior. That part is true. But the world doesn’t get to see the rest of me. And women don’t seem to mind my gruff exterior—my bed’s always warm.
I’m content with life—loving it, even—or so I thought. But when I meet a beautiful pastry chef with a broken heart and a smile that softens me down to my soul, I realize I wasn’t really content at all before her.
I only wish I had the words to let her know.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This books was abso-freaking-lutely amazing! A total change from some of the other books I’ve read lately that were serious and uber-emotional, this book was fun and sweet. Don’t get me wrong, the characters had some pretty serious and emotional things going on, but through it all, this book hit the spot!
Reese had a bad day. An embarrassing, getting left at the alter kind of bad day. What’s a girl to do to get over that?!? Take a honeymoon…..by herself! There is nothing that a little sun and sand won’t fix, right? But Reese knows herself well enough to know that she has to protect her heart. And the only way to do that is to stay by herself. But meeting a hot hockey player throws a wrench in her plans and makes it hard to stay true to herself. And he’s not making it easy for her!
Reese and Knox were great! I couldn’t help but love them. I loved Knox’s (not so patient) patience with Reese, and his determination. He was exactly what Reese needed, even if she didn’t know (or want to admit) it! This book was exactly what I needed, and one I’d definitely recommend!
