Description

Award-winning author Robin Kaye proves that home is where the heart is, even for the bad boys of Red Hook, Brooklyn ....

It would take a miracle for Storm Decker to return to Red Hook—or a tragedy. The neighborhood holds too many painful memories of his troubled childhood, along with the mistake that sent him running from the kindness of the ex-cop he'd come to consider his father. But when Pete suddenly falls ill, Storm is called home to face the past he tried to leave behind long ago...

Breanna Collins never expected to see Storm again after he left town without a word, breaking her heart. She's angry that he can't seem to appreciate all the changes in their hometown. But she still feels a powerful connection to her old flame. And unless she can remind him of all the reasons to stay, she knows he'll never stick around long enough to give their romance the second chance it deserves....

        Kaye (Call Me Wild) throws together richly drawn love-challenged characters to launch her Bad Boys of Red Hook contemporary romance series, set in an impoverished industrial Brooklyn neighborhood. After a rough childhood in Red Hook, Storm Decker took off one night without explanation, leaving Breanna Collins heartbroken and furious. Eleven years later, he unexpectedly shows up in her house in the middle of the night—so she nails him with a frying pan. Storm is only back in town because his beloved foster father is ill; despite his adult accomplishments as a professional sailor, Storm struggles with unpleasant memories and can’t wait to leave again. Self-effacing Bree resents his cavalier, self-serving attitude, musing that Storm “probably had Peter Pan tattooed on his ass.” As they weave their way through old memories and new realities, Bree and Storm slowly reignite old passion. A strong sense of place makes this a solid series launch.

        Storm Decker returns to Red Hook, Brooklyn, to care for the man who raised him like a son and face the woman he loved with all his heart; can they overcome the oceans that separate them and the walls they've built to protect themselves, or is it even a good idea to try? When Storm gets word that Pete, the man who took him in as a child, is sick and needs help running his tavern, he takes the first flight out from New Zealand, sneaking into the house in the middle of the night--only to be met by Breanna Collins and a smack to the head with a frying pan. Not a revenge smack, but a survival one--Bree thinks he's a burglar. And not that he doesn't deserve a revenge smack, since he abandoned her mid-kiss-that-was-definitely-leading-to-something-else 11 years ago and never once looked back. Bree wouldn't mind if she never saw Storm again, but she needs his help with Pete and Nicki, the 10-year-old girl Pete's taken in, so she'll put up with him. For now. And she'll do everything in her power to deny the sizzling attraction they both feel and the sense of unfinished business that lingers between them. After all, he's made it clear he's headed back to his life and his business halfway across the globe and that the quicker he gets out of Red Hook the happier he'll be. But the neighborhood has changed, and the woman who holds it all together with fierce love and loyalty is more compelling than ever. Storm left her once for her own good. He's not sure he can do it again. And the more time he spends in Red Hook with Bree, the less sure he is he even wants to. Fluid storytelling, convincing characters and an arc that is both passionate and poignant make for an emotionally gratifying contemporary romance.
