eARC Book review: Slow Ride (Road to Love #2) by Lori Foster
eARC Provided by publisher
You can’t put the brakes on love…
Ronnie Ashford needs a distraction. In the morning, she has to offer arrogant, conventional Jack Crews a job and convince him not to take it. She doesn’t need anyone’s help, thank you very much. But tonight is all about the tall, sexy stranger who just walked in the bar—and all the delicious trouble they could get into together. Too bad just as things are heating up between them, he whispers the three little words that destroy everything: “I’m Jack Crews.”
Jack is determined to connect with fiery Ronnie—in bed and out of it—but her terms are clear. If he takes the job, helping her acquire prized artifacts for her mysterious bosses, anything between them is strictly off-limits. Somehow he has to convince a woman who’s never felt like she belonged that she’s found her place—with him. And with the danger sparking hotter than the fire between them, it’s going to be one unforgettable trip…
Jack Crews is expecting to meet a man about a job. Except it turns out it's not a man. Ronnie Ashford is Veronica Ashford and she's tough as nails and independent. She's had no choice but to be since she's been on her own essentially abandoned by her family. Jack takes the job much to Ronnie's chagrin but he also wants Ronnie. This is a follow up book to Driven to Distraction, Brodie's book. Ronnie has had some really bad things happen in her life. Because of that she's protected herself from relationships and emotions. Jack's had some of this own heartbreaks but he's always had a loving mom and supportive brother and pseudo-sister. There's no way Ronnie can defend against the Crews family. Watching Ronnie slowly lower her shields and learn to trust in Jack was fun to see. There is some suspense and danger in this book as someone has it in for Ronnie. The question is who and why. Love this book and the Crews family. Excited to see what comes next!
