Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?
Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.
Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?
Oh my god. Sean, my love, you broke my heart!
“I’m so fuckin’ sick of being’ nothin’, Shayla.”
“You’re not nothing.” I said, pulling him into a hug.
Get ready for this slow burn.
And to get your heart broken. Completely.
Sean “Stitch” Molina is a broken man. A broody, angry and alone man. He’s been through a hell of a childhood. With a mom who never showed him any love or kindness. He grew up hungry and cold, having to steal food and clothes to take care of himself. Now, he’s the head chef at ‘Whitecaps’ and trying to be the best he can be.
Shayla Perkins, the happy, talky waitress, at ‘Whitecaps’ is the only person that can get to Sean. But after he stands her up, she keeps her distance from him. She tries to keep her focus on work and on her dreams, to open her own salon. But when her Nana dies, and her parents have to leave, she offers to take care of her brothers. But taking care of her brothers while juggling her own life, turns out to be harder than she thought. But then the person she least expected comes to her rescue. Broody Sean.
Sean doesn’t feel worthy. He believes he doesn’t deserve kindness and love. But Shay forces love and kindness on him. She makes it her mission in life to make him feel loved and worthy. She helps him through his nightmares and demons and shows him a place of light.
“Don’t quit talking’ to me,” he begged.
“I won’t. Ever.”
“I want you filling’ my head. I want it so fuckin’ bad.”
God his pain—it became my own—I felt it.
This story really got to me. I knew from the previous books that Sean would be the man to really break my heart. But he was also the one who I really fell in love with. This story will forever be with me. I loved Shayla and Sean’s story. I loved how she was the strong one and made sure Sean knew that she would always be there for him to lean on. I loved that she thought Sean to love and see good in the world. And I absolutely loved their Happy ever after. Shay is everything Sean deserves.
“He didn’t feel worthy. And he was absolutely worthy. Not just of me, but of everything good this world had to offer him. Of love. Of kindness. And I was going to make sure he knew that for good.”
