ARC Review: The Summer He Came Home (Bad Boys of Crystal Lake) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished reading "The Summer He Came Home" the first book in her Bad Boys of Crystal Lake series by Juliana Stone.

Product Description

Sometimes the best place to find love is right back where you started.

Falling asleep in a different bed every night has made it easy for Cain Black to forget his past. It's been ten years since he packed his guitar and left Crystal Lake to chase his dreams. Now tragedy has forced him home again. And though Cain relishes the freedom of the road, one stolen moment with Maggie O'Rourke makes him wonder if he's missing out on something bigger than fame.

For Maggie -- single mother and newly settled in Crystal Lake -- love is a luxury she just can't afford. Sure, she appreciates the tall, dark and handsome looks of prodigal son Cain Black. But how long can she expect the notorious hellion to stay?

The last thing either of them wants is something complicated. But sometimes love has its own plans.

My Review:

Cain Black has slept in many beds which has made it easy to forget his past but a sudden tragedy has him running back home.  It's been ten years since he packed up his guitar and left Crystal Lake to follow his dreams.  After meeting Maggie O'Rourke and sharing a moment with her he thinks he can find something more than just fame and fortune.

Maggie O'Rourke is a single mother to a son and has recently relocated to Crystal Lake.  The last thing she wants is to start a relationship with a tall and sexy rocker who is set to leave anytime soon.  She is always on the lookout for her ex-husband Dylan who has abused her and her son and is afraid what he might do to her if he found them.

I really liked the relationship between Cain and Maggie because it was very hot and steamy, you could tell they really care for each other and Cain acts like a father to her son.  Both fall in love and Cain knows what he feels is more than just a fling he just doesn't realize he's in love.  I liked how gentle and persuasive he was with Maggie and didn't force her to do anything she wasn't comfortable with.


Thanks Sourcebooks for sending me this ARC to review, greatly appreciated!
