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.
If you read that past books, you know everything about Poppy. She was living in hell and somehow she's still in hell even though the Devil was out of the equation. We also know the shit show that transformed Wheeler's life. These two couldn't be more than perfect for each other because as I always write, they cancel each other out and what is left is love. But the beginning is never easy. Poppy was scared to even be near Wheeler, and he was too wrapped up in his 360 that couldn't accept what Poppy was giving him. Thank God they changed their minds and open them enough to be perfectly what they were looking for.
Their backgrounds were so sad, enough to shed a tear, but I am so happy of that end. The story was super romantic and I just wanted more, which the author provided thanks to two epilogues. I'll miss the Marked Men and the Saints of Denver, but is time for me to move on (except if there's more to come) and continue reading more of this author, which is da bomb. I recommend.
