4 Pennies

This story had me angry, sad, happy, and ready to throw my kindle at times, but to me that just means it is a book worth reading.

This book is the second in the Bad Boy Reformed series.  Luke is over the top in love with Reese.  They have a bond since childhood that can’t be broken.  But what happens when Luke is forced to leave without being able to explain his reasoning to Reese.  He knows in his heart he is doing it to protect her and ensure their future.  By leaving without explanation makes for a very confused and frustrated Reese and the potential of losing everything that they have.

Reese doesn’t understand all the secrets and how Luke could just leave her and not tell her more.  The secret, unidentifiable text messages and unanswered questions lead Reese to question what she does mean to Luke and whether or not it is time for her to move on and give Sean a chance.

This book is an emotional driven, action packed, heartbreaking, love story.  It demonstrates that sometimes blind trust is not enough when you don’t get any explanations and you hear information that makes you believe that you have been played like a fool.  At times the interactions between Luke and Reese was infuriating, since she would not let him get a word in or explain himself.  But in the end, I still am rooting for Luke and Reese and the love and commitment that they have shared in the past and hopefully will continue to share in the future.  This story has a heartbreaking cliffhanger that is going to keep me on the edge of my seat until the third book is released.



“He abandoned you, Reese. He discarded and abandoned you, but you still love him. It’s clear all over your face.”

I flick my eyes away from his. “I can’t just snap my fingers and turn off my feelings,” I reply, unsure what else to say. “I don’t know what’s wrong with me.”

His eyes soften. “There’s nothing wrong with you. That’s what I’m trying to tell you. Can you consider giving us nicer guys a chance? I’ll wait until you’re ready. You’re worth it to me.”
