Evan Lennox is going nowhere fast.
She's living with her grandparents after her parents bailed on her, she got kicked out of her posh private school, her ex-boyfriend proved to be the biggest sleaze imaginable, her former best friend is a back-stabber, and her current best friend is stuck in backwoods NJ. To top it all off, one teeny, tiny fire she lit to burn some memories of her ex goes a little out of control and winds up igniting a good piece of a very powerful family's pecan orchard.
Evan lands her pampered behind in court and gets sentenced to community service. Which she knows she deserves. But the hard labor and humiliation may be her undoing.
Until she meets Winchester Youngblood on the site.
Everything about him is tricky, confusing, not at all what it seems, and so sexy, Evan can't resist pulling closer. But every step she takes to get to know him gives her more of a reason to back up and put him as far out of life as she possibly can. Because Winch is one hundred percent complicated, and Evan isn't looking for that. At all. She needs to meet a nice, responsible guy, not share searing kisses with the charming hustler she met after they both got sentenced in court.
But Winch is so much more than what he seems, and Evan finds out that she's falling hard for the guy everyone underestimates and writes off. And Winch realizes that Evan is the one person who's ever challenged him to ask for more out of his life, and her courage inspires him to try to be the person she sees when she looks at him. With every single odd stacked against them, Evan and Winch need to find out whether they have what it takes to fall for each other.
FALL GUY is a New Adult novel. It contains strong language, references to alcohol and drug use, sexual situations, and mature themes.
Today's Teasers are true to their names. But let face it Liz Reinhardt knows how to write a totally smexy, swoon worthy guy!!!
He twines a piece of my hair around his finger. He tries to look nonchalant, but the tight draw of his lips hint at all the tension he's working hard to hide. His voice drops and he leans his face so close to mine, I can smell the sweet mint on his breath.
"I'm implying that if I have to kill myself to get through this damn weeding so I can come inside and spend the day with you, it would be cool if you'd let me."
Then he closes the gap between us and pulls me into his arms. His mouth relays a trail of kisses down along my hairline.
"I wish I could stay with you tonight, Evan. I feel like I might f*ck this up again if I don't hold onto you."
Happy Reading!! :-)
