John (Jammer) Thomas is not one of the good guys your parents want you to end up with. He’s been on his own since he was seventeen, traveling from city to city, making enough money to survive by doing the only thing he’s ever been good at.
He’s covered in tattoo’s and has a mouth that would make a grandmother cry.
He doesn’t do relationships.
He doesn’t care about anyone besides himself.
He’s a drifter.
At first look, she’s just a pretty little thing behind the bar, but Charlene (Charlie) is so much more.
After her parents died in a fire she was put into the foster care system. Thanks to her good grades and hard work, she earned herself a scholarship.
Feeling like she was finally going to make something for herself, she finds out she has inherited a bar and a kid brother, from a father she never even knew.
While she tries to manage her new life, people from her father’s past come to collect old debts and threaten everything Charlie has left.
Can she really trust Jammer, or is he just helping her for what it pays out?
They say the truth shall set you free….but what happens when the truth reveals most of what you know about your life has really been a lie.
Ms. Foor did an amazing job with this story, it was layered, well developed and she managed to overlap a number of twists and turns in a believable fashion.
Jammer, aka John Thomas has been on his own since he was a teenager. Jammer’s realization of what his father truly did for a living was the catalyst for his departure at seventeen. When Jammer leaves home to escape his father, he meets a stranger who teaches him how to shoot pool; this rebel young man takes this game knowledge and becomes a hustler. Jammer makes just enough money to survive and never gets attached to anything or anyone. It’s just Jammer and his stick!
Charlie aka Charlene has not had an easy life but she has managed to put her head down to study and gets a scholarship into the college she has always wanted to attend.
Just when this beautiful young lady gets things on track, Charlie is faced with a lie from the past and a new reality that turns her life upside down.
This new life is not what Charlie expected for herself; it brings unexpected changes, a completely new life plan and puts her face to face with Jammer.
The chemistry between Charlie and Jammer is tangible. As they both start to accept what they feel for each other the reader can truly feel how different this is for the two of them. And when they do get together the sex is hot; the connection explosive.
I was rooting for Jammer and Charlie and as Ms. Foor continues to expand the connection these two share, the reader is taken on a journey of exploration that is engaging and makes for a can’t put me down read.
What happens when the man Jammer ran from at seventeen becomes the very thing that could destroy what Jammer thought he would never find and is now the one thing Jammer can’t imagine living without?
I do not want to give away any of this wonderful woven story, I truly want the reader to experience this journey! And that is the only reason this review is on the short side I truly encourage you to pick up this book!
The end of this story will warm your heart! I loved not only the end given to Jammer and Charlie but also the use of secondary characters like Jammer’s Mom.
Please note: this book is listed a part of a series but is a complete story!!!
