Author: Sherilee Gray
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 5, 2019
My best friend's sister is back in town, and while she’s here, she's under my protection. Quinn Parker had her heart broken, and I'll make sure no one hurts her again.
But when she starts looking around for a hot, no-strings distraction, I can’t stand back and do nothing. No one is touching this vibrant beauty...but me.
She’s the woman of my dreams, but Quinn wants a good time, not a long time. We play by her rules: no one finds out, no one gets hurt.
I have to keep it casual because an ex-con like me can't offer her forever…even if I want so much more.

"I thought I was dead inside before. Obviously not, because how could you bleed out if you were already a corpse?"
After meeting him in Beg for You I already knew he was a broken bad boy, my favorite kind...sigh. As usually seems to be the case, he's got a big heart, but it's buried beneath a painful past that is keeping him from feeling deserving of love. And how I love when the perfect woman comes along to fill his cracks. The only problem is...she might be even more broken than he is.
Quinn is running from a painful past as well. Straight back home where she feels safe. The only thing is, it's 'him' that makes her feel that way. Her brother's best friend is big. "Tall and thick. Neck, chest, thighs, waist, arms...everywhere." He's always been her protector. If only he could have protected her from the damage her ex had done to her self confidence. She was determined to convince him to hire her, and he did. "I'd needed to be near him."
He wanted to be able to keep an eye on her, but it was killing him. Seeing her all the time was torture, though he wouldn't change a thing. "Quinn could be soft and quiet. She could also throw attitude, loved to tease me, and had a wicked sense of humor. I liked it all." Too bad he'd decided to stay in the friend-zone.
The chemistry between these two is electric and I was afraid I might get shocked holding my Kindle too tight. I was tempted to throw some water on them out of self-preservation, but I was too excited for them to finally connect so I figured it was worth the risk. Yeah, I'm a virtual voyeur like that, and I was enjoying the hell out being in the 'danger zone', all up in their business. 😉
I'm really digging the Rocktown Ink series and I think the author saved the best for last. Yup, the more broken the better in my opinion, at least in the romance reading world. And you can't get more broken than what we have to look forward to in Meant for You. The line forms here...
