eARC provided by publisher through Netgalley
Available April 7th 2015
Darcy Stone is game for anything — except sexy Navy veteran and physical therapist A.J. Colten, the guy who'd rejected her when she'd needed him most. Now the shoe is on the other foot and he needs her to play nice and help him secure grants for his patients. Unfortunately, Darcy can't refuse. She needs the money to fund her passion project: rescuing S&R dogs and placing them with emotionally wounded soldiers.
A.J. admits it — Darcy is irresistible. But he's already been battle-scarred by a strong-willed, vivacious, adventurous woman like Darcy, and he's not making the same mistake twice—until he and Darcy are forced to fake a relationship. Growing closer than they'd ever imagined possible, Darcy and AJ have to ask themselves: how much between them is pretend? What's the real thing? And where does it go from here?
Jill Shalvis takes us back again to Sunshine, Idaho. Darcy Stone has slowly worked her way back to the land of the living after a terrible car accident nearly killed. A.J. Colton is the physical therapist and her brothers best friend that patched her back together. She works part time for him as a receptionist and sparks fly between the two of them. Darcy likes to come off as a snarky and a bit rude but she has a heart of gold and is really vulnerable. A.J. is the one person who can see right through her though. After finding out he did alot of the therapy on her for free she agrees to go along with him to a weekend trip to get grants for his patients. It all seems simple if they don't kill each other first. Jill Shalvis always rights an enjoyable book. There are always funny and emotional moments along with a little sexy. Darcy is a tough one for me. I wasn't sure i could like her when she first appeared in this series but each time we see her we find out more and more about what makes her tick. In reality she's had to deal with a lot of family issues growing up and then her accident and losing her independence as well as her income is devastating. Anyone would fall apart, but with a little help from her siblings and A.J. she pulls herself through. You can't help but hope it works out between her and A.J. Another great story from Jill Shalvis!
