It there anything more scrumptious than a second chance at love romance?

Six years ago, Cade Crawford and Palmer Montlake had just secretly gotten engaged. He was her agent and her acting career was just starting to take off. He's was few years older than her, was her brother Pike's best friend and the love of her life. He wanted to come clean with her brother about their relationship, but Palmer didn't want to do that. She knew that Cade had once been a player and her brother was not going to react well about them being together. But a great acting opportunity came up and things between Cade and Palmer went south. There was a nudity clause in the contract and Cade refused to let Palmer have any part in that. She reacted violently and thought Cade was jealous and should have let it be her own decision. 

"Not told me about the deal of a lifetime? I can't even believe you'd be willing to risk my career over a fucking sideboob!"

She fired him, they broke up,  and they avoided each other for the next six years. 

As I walk down the beach alone, I realize that even after all these years, I'm still broken. Because she's not in my life.
Pike and Palmer are close. He is a pitcher for the Tampa team, and is about to play in the World Series. Palmer's acting career is firmly established and she can hardly keep up with her schedule. She's dated over the years but she's never found anyone that she cared about in the way she loved Cade. They've managed to avoid each other's company, even though Palmer is friends with his whole family. He and Pike had a huge blow out when Palmer broke up with him and the two haven't spoken since. 

All that is about to change. Cade and Palmer find themselves running into each other and it's getting harder and harder for both of them to deny the feelings they still have for each other. At Cade's brother's wedding it's a garter and a bouquet that brings them together. A storm in Tahoe leaves them no choice but to spend the night together and a competitive game of Dirty Scrabble seals the deal.

I thought if we got together again I would spend days soaking in her beauty. Hours giving her pleasure, before I would allow it for myself. 
But I don't care about that right now.

But can there ever be anything between them, given her brother's feelings? Pike has his own problems and he is trying to come to terms with a lousy hand he's been dealt. 

Broken love has all the makings of a good read-drama, sex, angst, intrigue. I have to admit I am going to read Vegas Love the first book in this series. These Crawford men are delicious and I don't want to miss a single bite! 


We clink our glasses together then down the shots. The groomsman passes me a lime wedge, but I shake my head, causing him to pull me aside.
“My name’s Jared,” he says with a cocky smirk.
“I thought this was supposed to be a no-names night?” I reply, giving him shit, even though I have no interest in him.
“It is. But for you, I’ll make an exception. You need to know what name to say when I make you scream later.”
Cade comes up from behind Jared, clamping his big hand down on Jared’s skinny shoulder.
Jared glances back at Cade. They share some kind of a look that causes Jared to immediately ditch me. He saunters over to Tory and throws his arm around her, which earns him a hint of a smile from Cade.
“So does this mean you’re not married?” Tory asks Jared.
“Nope, I’m single as a Pringle,” he replies.
I expect Cade to say something to me, but instead he turns away.
I’m not sure what just happened, but I think it was some guy-code thing.
And it pisses me off.
Tory sees the rage on my face, takes my hand, and drags me off to the bathroom.
“What’s wrong?”
“Did you see that!?” I rant, as we step inside the ladies’ room, finding a long line. “Cade cock blocked me! Not that I wanted that guy’s cock, because you already called dibs on it, but Cade didn’t know that!”
“Since you don’t have a cock,” she replies. “I think it’s called blocking the box.”
“Oh, no,” the girl in front of us says. “It’s called twat blocking.”
“I thought it was boxed,” another woman says.
“Baseball players call cock blocking stealing signs.”
A voice from inside one of the stalls yells out, “It’s called clam jamming.”
Pretty soon everyone in the bathroom is giving us their opinions.
“Twat swatting or twat stopping.”
“Beaver dammed.”
I shake my head at Tory. “Whatever. It really shouldn’t matter what part you have. I got cock blocked because I will be having no cock tonight.”
“There’s still time,” Tory says. “You can have the groomsman. You need to get laid worse than I do, honey. It’s been far too long.”
“But why would he cock block me and then walk away?!”
As soon as the words tumble out of my mouth, Cade’s mother steps out of one of the stalls.
I put my head down, hoping she won’t notice me and, thankfully, she squeezes past us without saying a word.
“Holy buckets,” Tory says when the door closes behind her. “Wasn’t that his mother?”
“Uh, yeah. You can kill me now.”
