Maisey Yates. Yall. She's so fun! And has such interesting hero/heroine pairings. This one, whew. It was a doozie. A couple quotes this week.

This first one. I totally need friends like hers. They also ply a girl with pie and made me laugh a couple times. She'd just told them she wasn't hanging out with them that night because she was busy and then hemmed and hawed about telling them why...
"What's going on?" Alison asked, looking increasingly annoyed.

"Rebecca has a special friend."

The wave of heat intensified, and Rebecca felt like she might suffocate beneath her embarrassment. "He's not a...Don't call him that."

"A special friend?"" Alison raised an eyebrow. "Like a special a penis friend?"

"Alison!" Rebecca scolded. 
 This one gave me a giggle, too. 
"What are you doing here?"

Gage ignored Rebecca's evil glare as he walked over the threshold into her shop. "I came to fix your floorboard."

"This is real life, Gage. This is not porn. So, whatever you were thinking was going to happen here..."

He laughed, because even though she was playing prickly with him, she was also teasing him, and that was a welcome change. "No, I came to literally fix your literal floorboard. The one that you said you keep stubbing your toe on."

Her eyes went wide, and her mouth dropped open into a perfect O.

"What? I can be nice. See, I'm being nice. Also, I listen."

"You do," she said, looking slightly surprised that she agreed with his statement.

Last Chance Rebel (Copper Ridge #6)

Yall. This book. Last Chance Rebel was one of those books where I read a couple chapters and literally sat back thinking Holy crap. If Yates can pull this romance off it'll be damn impressive! And pull it off she did. This wasn't an easy read. It wasn't an easy romance. But it was a beautiful story of healing and forgiveness that really touched the heart. 

The quick of it is that when he was a teen Gage was reckless and in an instant changed the course of Rebecca's life forever--leaving her deeply scarred both emotionally and physically from a car accident. And then he ran. For 17 years. But he's come home to try and fix everything he broke all those years ago. 

These two. Yall. I really wasn't sure how it was going to work out. Rebecca was angry. bitter, and flat out hostile for a good long while. But I couldn't blame her for that and totally got her pissed off bitch attitude. She's spent every day dealing with the fallout of a car crash that left her body ravaged and now having to deal with the man responsible? Yeah. Bad place. But I still loved her. She overcame so much and is just a fighter. And Gage. Well he can be overbearing and arrogant but under it all he's even more broken than she is even if his scars are all on the inside. And I really felt for him. He was a good guy that made a horrible mistake as a kid and has struggled with it since. 

I hurt for both of them and ended up loving them together. They really are the last people you'd expect together but it worked somehow. It wasn't easy and they fought and growled at each other but seeing that morph into something different and healing was amazing. They had to fight for their romance and every bit of healing they went through. Realizing that they weren't victim and villain but more than that one moment in their pasts. Gah. Yes, yall. 

All in all, I really just didn't think these two could make it but Yates made me a believer. Last Chance Rebel sucked me in and held me completely captivated as two very damaged souls found a way to heal themselves and move on after a tremendously life altering event. Beautiful writing and romance, inspiring characters, hope, love, has it all. You simply can't go wrong with Yates.

The man who ruined Rebecca Bear's life just strolled back into it with one heck of an offer. Years ago, Gage West's recklessness left Rebecca scarred inside and out. Now he wants to make amends by gifting her the building that houses her souvenir store. Rebecca won't take Gage's charity, but she's willing to make a deal with the sexy, reclusive cowboy. Yet keeping her enemy close is growing dangerously appealing…

He's the wild West brother, the bad seed of Copper Ridge. That's why Gage needs the absolution Rebecca offers. He just didn't expect to need her. After years of regretting his past, he knows where his future lies—with this strong, irresistible woman who could make a black sheep come home to stay…
