Amber Jones is in a pickle. And when I say pickle, I mean a world of trouble.

She knew she shouldn't have gone to her ex's New Year's Eve party. And she reeeaally didn't mean to almost burn down his house.

Now she needs a good lawyer, stat. But where to find one?

Ethan Vaughn is a very busy man.

He really shouldn't have agreed to spring Amber Jones out of jail. As the most sought after lawyer in professional football, he should be focused on representing his NFL clients--not an accident-prone, struggling actress.

Now she's remanded on bail, and living in his house.

The woman is a walking talking disaster. And considering his track record, he needs to stay as far away from this one as possible.

Problem is, he's finally met the one he's willing to risk it all for.


I read the first book in this series last year some time and really enjoyed it, so of course I went and bought the next in the series, it's just taken me a while to get around to reading it.

This starts with Amber in lock-up, waiting for her phone-call, after accidentally setting her ex's mum's kitchen on fire after finding out he was getting engaged to another woman while invited to the party. She rings her best friend, Cam - the main gal in the first book in this series, and she sends Ethan who's a lawyer and close friend but Amber's pseudo enemy. Her bail gets posted but she is given into Ethan's care to supervise her actions until the court case. Amber is determined to give up on romance and love after the disasters she's dated but there's something about Ethan that chips away at her resilience and feelings slowly begin to emerge for both of them.

I forgot how much I like this authors style! I could have happily and greedily read this in one sitting. 

Amber was stubborn as a mule but Ethan had a way about him that totally broke down her barriers. I really liked him. Maybe he didn't go about it all in the right way but I could tell from near the start that Ethan had feelings for her (as shown in my Goodreads updates).
I loved how we saw more of Cam and Cal from book one, Wrecking Ball, too. The birth of their child was written with humour and heart and I remembered why I liked their story so much, too.

I am most definitely going to read more of this authors books because they are the style of writing I like and the romance always hits me in the feels. (I'll admit, I did have a little cry towards the end when it all started to look a little bleak).
