He stood as she wrapped the towel around the ice and applied it to her ankle. "Ahh, sweet Lord. God, that hurts." She squeezed her eyes shut. This pain in her ankle was starting to feel expensive.

He must have read her mind. "I think you need to go to the hospital."

"No thanks." She couldn't afford it, although she be damned if she told him that.

"It'll be my treat."

She opened one eye and stared at him from underneath her false eyelash. His lips crooked in a half-smile. "You sure know how to show a girl a good time, but no thanks." She shot Jonathan a look. "Can you make sure Henry here gets home okay? He's been drinking too much to drive, and I don't think his buddy's much better off."

"Sure." Jonathan waved at Henry. "Come on. I'll get you a Lyft." He turned and then shot a glance back over his shoulder. "You can wait out in the lobby."

It was a dismissal, and Henry had to know it. He looked at her, reluctant to go. "Here." He scrounged around on a nearby table until he found a piece of paper and a stub of a pencil. He wrote something and handed her the paper. "If you need anything, anything at all, give me a call."

She looked at the paper. Henry Stanton. 555-3022. She stuck it in her cleavage, momentarily forgetting her pain when a flush swept over Henry's face. "What? It's not like I have a pocket in this get-up."

Our Review:

SLOW BURN ALERT!  Loved this book by Jessica Martyn.  This is my first time reading anything by her and I am super pleased that this is a SERIES!!!! 
Daisy is an amazing woman.  She is strong and independent and is the most amazing mom! 
And Henry!  Oh Henry.  Little bit of a nerd who is reserved, but man alive he really brings his A game when its time!

Their chemistry really pulled me in and kept me going.  I read this whole book in one mad sitting...which kept me up until 3:45am.  Knowing I had to be up at 7pm, I had to make a decision.  Be tired the next day satisfy my needs to have all the 411 now.  Obviously I chose all the 411.

You will not be disappointed in this read.  It had everything I needed.  Slow burn, a cute little boy to really tug at your heart strings, and just a bit of danger to round it out.

Pick this up!  You won't be disappointed!

I gave this one 5 stars!
