Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.
Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.
The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.
I knew going in that this book was going to be different. It was two broken people that healed each other, but this story was so powerful and beautifully written that is so different that what Jay normally writes. If I didn’t already have Jay Crownover as an auto buy author this book would have clinched that. It was a powerful and beautiful story.
e When I started this book i was in the middle of a 2 month long reading slump. Nothing was catching or holding my attention. I would read here and there but just bits a pieces before I would find something else that could keep my attention. I should have known that it would be Jay Crownover that would snap that slump.
I have been reading about this crew since Rule came out, and loved every word, devoured every page and loved every couple. I knew this one was going to be different. I knew this was the last book in the series, so I already knew it was going to be an emotional read and knowing who it was about and seeing bits a pieces of their story through out the other books. Even knowing this did not prepare me for the amazing story that was written.
Hudson Wheeler and Poppy Cruz are both damaged, but really good people. It was fitting that their story was last and also one of the roughest in the series. Neither had easy lives but when they found each other it was amazing. The lone wolf and the ghost of a girl both came to life and opened up to the world. I loved every word of this book and read it from start to finish. I cannot recommend this book enough. It was full of the feels, full of healing, full of steamy moments, and a full restoration of two beautiful broken souls.
