A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new romantic suspense from USA Today Bestselling Author Kennedy Layne.
Derek Spencer hadn’t even bothered to RSVP to his Catfish Creek’s high school reunion. He’d been too busy fighting a war in Afghanistan in his capacity as a Marine and wouldn’t even be in the States during the event. Unfortunately, one emergency phone call from his mother changed everything.
Tessa Daniels had been voted most likely to do everything back in high school. She somehow didn’t think that included acquiring her very own stalker at the relatively young age of twenty-eight. It had stopped being simply annoying after someone broke into her house, invading her privacy. Now, she was actually in fear for her life.
Derek’s mother feels terrible that her son has spent almost every waking hour at the hospital, watching over his recovering father. She sets out–and succeeds–in arranging for Derek and Tessa to attend their high school reunion together. Neither one of them expected sparks to fly or memories of long-lost crushes to emerge, but they are not only faced with their newfound passion…they must also confront the person trying to extinguish their chance to rekindle the flames of past desires.

Miss Riki’s Review:
Ooh…I love how this book in the Bad Boy Homecoming series took a turn for the darker side and ratcheted up the suspense and tension! Derek is the ultimate in military heroes, home on emergency leave due to the sudden illness of his father, who is in the hospital where his one time high school crush, Tessa works. I loved both Tessa and Derek for their commitment to the well being of the friends and family in their lives and found the chemistry between them explosive. The mystery of this short book was intriguing and kept me wondering. I have to admit that I didn’t see the culprit to the crime coming, which was a nice surprise.
There sexy times are HOT in this one, with a few steamy scenes that showcase the bond between Tessa and Derek. There’s something so intriguing about a second chance romance, and I wondered how it would end with Derek returning to military swrvicve, but the grand gesture in this one is so sweet, and it made me smile! I love a sweet hEA, and this one absolutely delivers.
This is admittedly my first Kennedy Layne novel, but after some quick research I see she has an extensive backlist for me to choose from. I love finding a new-to-me author with a big backlist so I can go binge read!
This is a great addition to the Bad Boy homecoming series! Go get you some sexy second chance romance!
