Return of the Bad Boy (Second Chance #4) by Jessica Lemmon Hits Shelves Today!!
He's a mess...
Asher Knight has three constants in his life: music, beautiful women, and a bottle of Jack. He lives for the next gig, the next city, and dreams only of a life spent in front of an arena full of screaming fans. But Asher's nomad ways come to a sudden stop when he learns he's the father of a three-year-old from a past relationship and suddenly this rock star bad boy is forced to put down roots.
Only she can clean up
Gloria Shields is no one's fool. Sure, the sexual chemistry between her and Asher has always been intense, but she'd never risk giving her heart to a man who has a perfect record for breaking them. Except the man desperate to make things right with his newfound son is nothing like the rock god she's guarded her heart against for years. And it isn't long before she starts to wonder if life with this bad boy might be the best thing that's ever happened to her.
Archer Knight knows his past transgressions cost him a chance with the one woman who has ever meant something to him, and it has been haunting him everyday since she chose to walk away. After finding out one of his little careless encounters brought him a son, he is determined to become a better man, not only for himself, but also for his son and Gloria. He wants to have a relationship with his son, and make-up for lost time with him, which means he must give-up his wild ways and start to live a more stable life. He also knows that the only way he has a chance at winning back Gloria's heart is to prove to her that he is a better man, one that is worthy of her heart, and can be trusted with it. But when he tries to make his move, Gloria surprises him and tries to reverse rolls on him, and isn't so willing to do anything more than a one night fling... and it kills him, and has scrambling to find a way to hold onto her!
After having her heart handed back to her in a million pieces Gloria Shields decides it is best to approach her encounters with sexy rocker Asher Knight with extreme caution. Every time they are near one another, there is this undeniable magnetic pull between them, but she is determined to not let it lure her back into his arms. She knows the minute she lets her guard down, he'll be there trying to pull her back in, and doing all he can to try to lure her back into his bed. The one thing she doesn't account for is that Archer is determined to turn over a new leaf and has plans to incorporate her into his new life, and will stop at nothing to reclaim his spot in her heart... question is does she have to strength to keep up her defenses, and fend off his advances when the sexy rocker turns up his charm?
From the moment I met Asher, I knew his story was going to leave a mark, there was just something about the cocky bad boy rocker that spoke to me, and had me dying to learn more about him...and I have to admit the man was WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! After reading his story I was left with a little rocker euphoria, he had me smiling and swooning from the minute he entered the story, and his little spell over me lasted well after the last page was turned. His cocky and domineering personality, caring nature, smooth and sultry one liners, and alluring rocker sex appeal lured me in and had me falling hard for him...and had me dedicating a permanent spot in my heart for him. His undying commitment to make Gloria his forever, and his unwavering dedication to his son was not only something to be admired, but also a beautiful thing to witness... definitely redemption at it's best!! After finishing this read I am certain of two things, one being Ms. Lemmon DEFINITELY knows her bad boys, and second, this sinfully delightful little tale has bestseller written all over it!!!
If you like your fairy tales a little of the naughty side, and armed with a bad boy looking to satisfy your every desire, then look no further...this series is perfect for you!! I guarantee Ms. Lemmon's bad boys will steal your heart and leave you tingling in all the right places!!
