Swerve (Boosted Hearts #1) by Sherilee Gray Hits Shelves Today!!

Shay Freestone has never known stability, every time she thinks she has a grasp on it, it slips right through her fingertips, and she finds herself alone all over again. Every person that comes into her life, and she allows herself to get attached to always walks away, and that coupled with her lack of self confidence, has lead her to believe that she just wasn't meant to belong to anyone. After her last experience with heart break she has decided she is done with relationships once and for all, and has no intention of ever letting another man into her life for more than just a night of fun. Figuring that if it's just one night then there's no risk of getting attached and opening herself up to hurt again... it's the safe route. After weeks of hiding out at home and busying herself with work, her friend decides to intervene, and convinces her it's time to stop drowning herself in hurt, and let it all go and have a little fun at a costume party. She of course tries to rebel, but is handed a Poison Ivy costume instead, and drug along despite her reservations. Between the uncomfortable costume, and being surrounded by strangers she has had her fill of the party and is ready to leave, but the minute she heads for the door she is accosted by some costumed weirdo who can't keep his hands to himself or take a hint that she isn't down for what he offering. So she flees the first chance she gets, but the weirdo isn't taking no for an answer... that is until a tall, dark and ruggedly handsome stranger comes to her rescue and sends the weirdo packing. She thanks him for his help, and even accepts a ride home, with the belief that she will never see him again... 

Hugh Colton has had a rough life, after his father left his family high and dry and riddled with debt, the livelihood of the family fell onto his shoulders, and he had to step up and be the man of the family. As his father continued to rack up debt the folks he screwed over came knocking and Hugh always paid them off, but when his father found himself in debt to a notorious crime boss it was decided that Hugh work off the payment by providing him with stolen cars. So Hugh had to put his own life on hold, and his future in jeopardy just to bail his father out once again. With the debt almost being paid, and freedom from the crime boss on the horizon Hugh is looking forward to getting his life back on track, and possibly even finding his own little piece of happiness. On one of his last boosting missions he comes across a costumed beauty in dire need of rescue and he knows helping her could put his own future at risk, but he just can't walk away and leave her to fend for herself. He knows the minute she slides into the seat of his car that he's making a big mistake, but reason is being overtaken by an insatiable desire...and the urge to quench that desire is winning out!!

From the moment I started this book it had me at it's mercy, I was barely a paragraph into it and I was completely and utterly addicted and submersed into a state of complete literary bliss. The instant Hugh entered the picture I knew he was going to be one of those characters that would linger with me long after I finished his story, not only because of the man he was created to be, but also because of his unwavering dedication to be the man worthy of Shay's affections. There is something to be said for a man who sees a woman struggling to find comfort in her own identity, and does everything in his power to help her to see the woman he sees standing before him, and makes no effort to change a single thing about her, just appreciates her for her. Every time she started to slip into old habits he was there to pick her back up again, and help her find her way, and that was one of the most beautiful things to witness. Their relationship may have started off as just a fling, but with each new encounter I saw it blossom into something more, a dependency on one another that neither really thought they were worthy of, but were definitely so deserving of...and it had me completely enraptured me. I have read other books from this author and I have to say with each new book I read she continually surprises me, not only does she find a way to outdo the story before, but always manages to create a story that resonates with me...and makes me believe happy endings are still possible.

If you haven't had the opportunity to read something from this author yet, I highly encourage you do so now, not only are you missing out on some truly exceptional stories, but you are also missing out on the opportunity to meet some truly unforgettable characters that are certain to leave an indelible impression on your heart!
