Review by Barbara
They say (whoever “they” are) that deep inside most women fantasize about being with a bad boy! One thing is for sure, most women love reading about them. Especially men like Tate: Bad on the outside, but oh so good and protective of what they call “theirs”.
The author has written an awesome story with characters you can’t help but love. Tate is the town’s bad boy from the wrong side of town who’s spent time prison. Hennessy is the preacher’s daughter who was always prim and proper and lived an idyllic life. However neither were the person people believed them to be.
Hennessy’s father, preacher or no, was not a good man and sadly Hennessy paid the price. She was never good enough for her father no matter what she did. As soon as she could she left for college and became a psychologist. That is how she ended up Tate’s therapist for his anger issues when he was released from prison. Well that, fate and a little inside help.
Tate and Hennessy on the outside are complete opposites. But on the inside - they are kindred spirits. Both have suffered for things out of their control, both have made the best of bad situations but best of all, at least for us readers, is the enormous attraction to each other that these two have felt since they were kids. And when they finally come face to face - holy hotness!!!
Some shocking and hard truths come out during Tate’s sessions with Hennessy. Can these two find a path to right past injustices or are they destined to suffer at the hands of others and their preconceived notions.2 Thumbs Up for a very well written book; one I Highly recommend.
Review by Kathy
What a great story. I totally enjoyed Tate and Hennessy's story. They were not two that people would think would be a match for each other, but these two puzzle pieces fit together so perfectly that no one else would do for them. Tate being the "badboy" and Hennessy being the preacher's daughter, who would have thunk it? But they are wonderful together. I loved reading both of their life stories, although I wanted to beat the crap out of the parents that they had, they, together overcame those losers and not only them but the gossips of the small town that they called home.
Tate is a strong character and one that has made mistakes but for good reasons. His only true sin is that he has a mother who is the town whore. His mistake, killing to save a young girl from being raped. He did his time and is made to see someone about his anger issues. That someone; the beauty who has had his eye since she was 15, Hennessy. She's smart, innocent, good hearted and has his pulse beating faster each time he has to spend his time with her during their sessions. But when these two finally get together, it's hotter than a Texas summer.
Secrets are ugly things, but there are secrets in this town that no one knows, other than the parties involved, and when those secrets begin to come to light, it takes everything Tate has not to take things into his own hands and end Hennessy's tormentor's life. Then again, there are more secrets that light is to be shed on and when it does, well let's just say that Karma is a bitch and she has a thing for one Reverend Hanes.
Great read and I highly recommend this steamy and entertaining read. You don't want to miss this one!
One look at the sixteen-year-old, prim and proper town goody-two-shoes, Hennessy Hanes, and Tate Casey knows he’s in trouble. He knows he should stay away from the preacher’s daughter, but there’s something about her he’s drawn to, and he can’t resist the pull.The more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that something isn’t right. He may not be able put his finger on what it is, but he’s determined to find out what’s going on with the girl with the haunted eyes. Tate didn’t anticipate that someone else would be just as determined to keep Hennessy’s nightmare a secret, and he never realizes just how far that person is willing go to keep those skeletons in the closet until it’s too late. With the very real threat of jail time hanging over his head, Tate leaves without a backwards glance at the town or the girl. The problem is that out-of-sight doesn’t necessarily mean out of mind, and it’s Tate who’s now haunted by his decision and memories of Hennessy. *** Hennessy Hanes knows better than anyone that not everything is always as it appears to be. After years of being on the receiving end of her squeaky-clean preacher father’s abuse, she seizes an opportunity to leave it all behind and runs. Her only regret is that in walking away she loses any chance with the one person who tried to save her. *** Fast forward ten years, and they’re both back where they started. Tate was never a good boy, and it turns out that the man he’s now grown into isn’t all that much better. Anger is a living, breathing part of him, and there’s a court order forcing him to seek help from the one person he’s never forgotten. Hennessy never thought she’d see Tate Casey again, and certainly not on her couch. But now it’s her turn to save him, and there are rules she must follow as his psychologist, not to mention a court order instructing her to help him manage his anger. If she doesn’t follow those rules, he’ll end up back in jail. Tate Casey has never been a man who followed the rules, and Hennessy is no longer the straight-laced, timid preacher’s daughter she once was. His hands may be tied, so it looks like for the first time in Hennessy’s life, she’ll be the one breaking the rules for the chance to finally get what she’s always wanted. Him.
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 8, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
