Tempting Signs Series Book 2
Robbie Jacobs is content being just one of the guys. For years, she’s run with her ‘Pack,’ a group of rowdy boys she went to high school with, used to party with, and now leans on in times of trouble. She has a couple gal pals, sure, but none of them are as close as the Pack…
Gray Smythe has been the unchallenged leader of their group of friends for years. Stoic, determined, he’s managed to be there for them all through some crazy shit. But when Robbie, the only girl in their group, gets into a car accident, the line between friendship and lover suddenly gets a hell of a lot thinner.
One stubborn Taurus man who’s sure he knows what’s right and wrong and one woman fighting to win back her body and a chance at love… Will Robbie believe Gray is actually Forever Devoted?
This is a story of devotion and survival. When they first met Robbie and Gray took this vow together, “I solemnly promise to be family, to protect and hunt with you, forever devoted.”
Thus begins a friendship for the ages. Although their group got larger as they got older, they were always the closest.
While out with Gray drowning her sorrows over yet another break-up, Robbie makes a choice that will change their lives forever. With her judgement clouded by alcohol, she waves off Gray’s warning and offer of a cab and leaves the bar with Jason who is too intoxicated to drive. Then the truck rolls over.
Gray never leaves her side at the hospital waiting for her to wake from the coma. Then when she is able to be released takes her to his home and continues with her care as she recovers as much as she can from a brain injury.
Talk about frustrations, neither of these two seem to get it.
Hard-headed and stubborn Robbie doesn’t seem to understand that the only reason Gray isn’t jumping her bones is that she needs to recover. Then Gray doesn’t get that she needs her independence as she gets better.
I laughed and cried throughout this book. Very emotional.
5 Contented Purrs for Virginia!
Virginia Nelson likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude–not always in that order.
