Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.

My Thoughts
When I heard Raine Thomas was releasing another NA contemporary romance I knew I would have to get my hands on it. I have loved all Raine' books and love how she writes both YA paranormal and NA contemporary romance so flawlessly and how she manges to write both seemingly effortlessly. I need to give Raine extra thanks this time as with her latest release Meant for Her, she managed to save me from insanity. I would often turn on my kindle numerous times in the night/early hours while I fed my demanding newborn. It is my belief that her writing skills are what got me through those difficult hours.

Sierra is now one of my favourite female characters, I loved how she was "Too nice" and was always so happy and optimistic, she had an intuition about people too that was rarely wrong.

Evan  is haunted by the death of his mother and as a result is in a dark place, a place where he as vowed never to let himself get close to anyone again for fear of feeling the same depth of despair that his mothers passing caused.
Sierra as other ideas and is determined to break down his barriers into his heart.

I was impressed with myself for figuring out the "bad guy" of the story maybe my brain works differently at 2 o'clock in the morning when I am already sleep deprived which is how I was able to guess correctly it was a great curve ball though.

There was a few moments when I wanted to kick Evan's ass for the way he treated or talked to Sierra but Sierra never gives up on him. 

An amazing story line with amazing characters, especially the hot Aussie ball player Evan *swoon* I can certainly see why Sierra wanted him so much.
It was an emotional roller-coaster at times especially as sierra started to break the cracks in Evans barrier

I loved to see the familiar faces of Everly and Cole from for Everly too although there is no need to for Everly to read meant for her I would highly recommend it as it is also a fantastic book.
