I missed you, and I needed to see you again.


And that’s the last thing Lilah Ledbetter wants. She’s been down that road with Finian Brody, and she’ll be damned if she’ll let him hurt her again—no matter how hot he still makes her burn.
You deserve better, and I want the chance to give you better.
Epic truck sex should never be followed by a broken heart, but that’s exactly what Fin gave Lilah, all those months ago. Nudging her into a job at Green Rock Ranch is hardly the way to make amends, though her body doesn’t seem to get the message.
Tell me you want me, Lilah. Say it.
Heaven help her, she does. Avoiding Fin when they’re working together is next to impossible. He’s still arrogant as hell, but there’s something different this time around.
He’s changed.
But so has she.
Feel all of me with all of you, sunshine, and know this is where you belong.
Fin might be sure they belong together, but Lilah will have to bury the past before giving Fin—and love—a second chance.
This book is approximately 76,000 words


A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.

Lilah and Fin have been friends since they were children and she has loved him just as long. When he finally noticed her, and they shared her first sexual experience, she thought all her dreams had come true. When he broke her heart, she realized that everything her mother had said about her not being good enough for him was true.

When Lilah wants nothing to do with him Fin misses her and knows he made a mistake. He approaches her at the vet clinic where she works and wants her help on his ranch but that is only step one of his plan to win Lilah back. Will he be able to convince her to forgive him and prove to her that his feelings are real?

This is the first story I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. Although I didn’t like Fin in the beginning he won me over especially how protective he was of Lilah. I am looking forward to more of the Brody brothers.
