Not All Scars Heal

For Donovan Pate, the lake town of Evergreen Cove is a minefield of tough memories-including the day he had to let go of Sofie Martin. Years later he still can't forget the taste of her lips and the feel of her killer curves. He knows he's too damaged, that he should stay away for her own good. But what the head says and the heart wants are two very different things . . .

Seven years ago, Donovan broke Sofie's heart. Now her career depends on playing nice in order to pull off the charity fund-raiser of the decade. She vows to keep things professional . . . yet working by his side every day doesn't make it easy to fight temptation, and it isn't long before she finds herself falling for this bad boy all over again. But loving Donovan means helping him face his past-so they can fight for a future together.

"Jessica Lemmon is an author to keep your eye on!"

Rescuing the Bad Boy
Average rating
4.5 / 5
I loved every minute of it
May 30th, 2015
When I reviewed Bringing Home the Bad Boy, I said that Evan was likely to have some competition as a book boyfriend with Donovan and I wasn't wrong. With Rescuing the Bad Boy Lemmon delivers an addictive hero who carries just as many scars on the inside as the outside. It's an emotional rollercoaster from the beginning and I loved every minute of it. Donovan is a charming rascal but his past has caused him to shut himself off from people, feeling like he has nothing to offer others. He's got a couple of close friends but they definitely have to do most of the work in the relationship. Then there is Sofia. A few weeks dancing around an attraction to each other leads to a night that changes things for both of them. Years later, Donovan is back but he isn't happy about it ... and the attraction between the two is as hot as ever. I love Sofia. She's got an amazingly level-head about Donovan and I think she handled every step of the way with a lot of style. The ending has to be one of my favorites of all time. As these two navigate the minefield of their past (both individually and shared), the present and how they are going to handle the future, I found myself drawn more and more to them. Lemmon delivers it so smoothly and naturally - I can't wait to read more from these guys. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

Loved it!!
May 27th, 2015
Loved! This! Book! The story is incredible and the writing is spectacular! Rarely can an author make me loathe a character so quickly and have me love him so deeply at the end. Donovan who appears to be the baddest of bad boys turns out to be one of the most loving and caring men around. Now Sofie just needs him to believe it. This is a great read and everyone needs it on the must read list. I highly recommend it.
