Haunted and hidden.
Mysterious and sexy, Grayson Falcon steers clear of commitment in all forms. He takes the road less traveled, avoiding the demons of his past and the nightmares they cause. He uses his good looks and country charm to attain pleasure, but it is always a short-lived reprieve.
Sweet and scarred.
Once believing that love can conquer all, Mandee Carlain’s life was then turned upside down and inside out. Her beauty queen good looks and sweet smile always caught the eye of the wrong kind of man. However, as a survivor, she still holds on to hope that one day she will come face to face with the man whose whispered words will give her strength to still believe.
What happens when the hopeless find hope ...at the wrong time?
Love is...Wasted.

When I have made peace with my anger, released it in tears and screams and allowed my body to float and release the tension, I simply float, eyes closed, kicking my feet ever so often, moving my arms when I feel I should and allow myself to drift toward reality’s shores.
I feel my foot drag across the lake’s floor and sigh as I push my feet down and stand, opening my eyes.
I gasp when I see him, Grayson, standing on the gravel, my dress over his shoulder and a towel in his hand. His square jaw, peppered with a few days’ worth of growth and slightly lighter than that on his head, his jaw is tight, and I see the muscles in it working. His eyes are so deeply connected to mine it renders me almost unmoving.
The way he looks at me is unrecognizable. Angry? Annoyed? 
When his eyes leave mine after what seems like an eternity, then move to my lips, I wonder if there is something on them. Then they slowly, very slowly, move down my body. At this moment, I remember I am in a bra and panties, in front of Grayson Falcon, sexiest man alive.
I quickly sink down to a seated position and curl into myself, hiding myself, incredibly insecure and horrifically embarrassed. 
“You’re blue, Mandee, and blue isn’t a good color on you. Come on; get up out of there.”

4.5 Stars. 

I LOVED Grayson. Unattainable, through choice, Grayson stays well away from commitment and 'love'. Haunted by his past, he doesn't stay in one place for long, always trying to put his loved ones first. I adored Grayson. He's keeping so much bottled up inside, it's very easy to understand his mindset and to fall in love with his character. 

Mandee is a little naive and very sweet. Having lost her mum when she was younger, her life veered off path and now everyone treats her like a fragile little girl, which she hates. Meeting Grayson and having an instant reaction to him, catches Mandee off guard. I loved how Mandee changes during this book. Grayson brings out the real Mandee and I really liked her. Building a friendship between them is easy, both feeling like they've found someone they can be their true selves with and who can keep their secrets safe. I so desperately wanted them to realise they were meant to be together but with Grayson still determined he's no good for Mandee, she's got her work cut out for her. 

This is the second book I've read in this series and I've loved them both, but Grayson is definitely my favourite Falcon man. He's the perfect balance of troubled and sweet, cool but caring and did I mention he's off the charts sexy? Highly recommend this book/series.
