Series: Someone to Love #2
Author: Addison Moore
Publisher: Skyscape

Publication DateJanuary 28, 2014

A sexy, romantic read from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Someone to Love. When coed Ally Monroe literally falls into the arms of a tattooed bad-boy one summer night, she can't seem to let go. Morgan Jordan is everything Ally doesn't want—he's a playboy from a blue collar background, and Ally's looking for upper-class stability. Though their relationship starts off as a one-night stand, once Ally learns Morgan is her best friend's brother, there's no escaping him . . . or the growing fire between them. As Ally and Morgan become closer, they confront bitter enemies, his sister's disapproval, and paths pulling them in different directions at summer's end. The second book in the bestselling Someone to Love series proves that in love and passion, sometimes two wrongs do make a right.

Review by Lisa Kane

I adored Cruise Elton and Kendall Jordan in Someone to Love and this story picks up right after that one. Morgan is Kendall’s brother, a star baseball athlete attending college on a full athletic scholarship in Oregon. He is visiting his sister and mom in Carrington, Massachusetts. His mom is getting married to Cruise’s dad and he is here for the wedding. But on his way, he stops at the Pretty Girls Gentlemen’s Club for a few drinks.

Ally is Kendall’s friend. Life has been hard and she is struggling but is determined to keep going to Garrison, the college Kendall and their friend Lauren attend. Her job at Starbucks isn’t cutting it and she gets a job at Pretty Girl’s, where her sister Tess works as an exotic dancer. The thing is Ally’s never done this before and she isn’t sure she can do it now. Her debut doesn’t go exactly the way she wanted and she ends up falling into a gorgeous guy’s lap-Ally meet Morgan.

These two have been having eyeball sex the whole time Ally was dancing and one thing leads to another and they end up having a one night stand in a back bedroom of the club.

Each goes their own way until Morgan is introduced to Ally by his sister, meeting his own personal dancer in an awkward set of circumstances.  They are snarky and sassy and smoking hot with each other.

“Okay”-she flattens her hands in the air-“so you’re less of an ass for catching me, but could you please do me a huge favor? Don’t tell her about Pretty Girls, or all that stuff that happened after. I’d die if she found out.”  

Ally has been casually dating Rutger, a preppy type of frat guy, who is rich and a snob. She thinks being with someone like him can lift her up out of the pit that is her life. Her father split when she was 9 and her mom died when she was a young teen. With only her druggie brother to raise her, she spiraled out of control, met a bad guy and messed up big time. But some good came of that and she lives for her daughter Ruby, who she gave up in an open adoption. She lives for the few times she visits her.

For some reason Ally opens up to Morgan about her past and he tells her things that are messed up for him right now. They may be falling for each other, but the summer will be over too quickly and Morgan will be going back to Oregon. There may also be an element of danger lurking around them and it adds intrigue to the story.

“I need you tonight.” I sear the words over his ear. “Maybe at the end of the day all I really want is to go home with someone like you. Maybe that’s the only thing the bad girl in me really craves. It can be our dirty little secret. No strings, just you and me, two birds cut from the same cloth, wrestling it out.”

Cruise and Kendall are trying to make a go of his mom’s bed and breakfast. They are still crazy in love, engaged to be married at Christmas and Cruise is his usual creative self in the bedroom (and pretty much anywhere else with a hard surface) judging by the noises that come from their bedroom. Reading about these two is like spending time with old friends.

How can Morgan and Ally make things work when they live on opposite sides of the coast? Are they ready to radically change their lives for each other-can a player avoid being played? What happens when Cruise’s ex-girlfriend Blair is up to her old tricks? Besides all that, throw in Molly, Cruise’s nymphomaniac little sister.

I loved this book and can’t wait for Someone for Me, the continuation of Kendall and Cruise’s story!

Sometimes, a strange turn takes us exactly where we need to be. Sometimes when we fall, destiny makes sure the right person is there to catch us.
