Evan Lennox is going nowhere fast. She's living with her grandparents after her parents bailed on her, she got kicked out of her posh private school, her ex-boyfriend proved to be the biggest sleaze imaginable, her former best friend is a back-stabber, and her current best friend is stuck in backwoods NJ. To top it all off, one teeny, tiny fire she lit to burn some memories of her ex goes a little out of control and winds up igniting a good piece of a very powerful family's pecan orchard.
Evan lands her pampered behind in court and gets sentenced to community service. Which she knows she deserves. But the hard labor and humiliation may be her undoing.
Until she meets Winchester Youngblood on the site.
Everything about him is tricky, confusing, not at all what it seems, and so sexy, Evan can't resist pulling closer. But every step she takes to get to know him gives her more of a reason to back up and put him as far out of life as she possibly can. Because Winch is one hundred percent complicated, and Evan isn't looking for that. At all. She needs to meet a nice, responsible guy, not share searing kisses with the charming hustler she met after they both got sentenced in court.
But Winch is so much more than what he seems, and Evan finds out that she's falling hard for the guy everyone underestimates and writes off. And Winch realizes that Evan is the one person who's ever challenged him to ask for more out of his life, and her courage inspires him to try to be the person she sees when she looks at him. With every single odd stacked against them, Evan and Winch need to find out whether they have what it takes to fall for each other.

Author: Liz Reingardt
Reading time: 6.5 hours
This is a new series from the wonderful author of the Brenna Blixen series and books Inherit and Lengths (which she wrote with one another accomplished author) Liz Reinhardt.
The book is about Evan that we meet in Brenna Blixen series, and Winch.
The book is exciting and mysterious, and my mind is spinning about what Winch is hiding. What secrets is he hiding? Why is he behaving the way he does and who is he trying to cover for?
The book draws you in from the first sentence, and has action, drama, romance and some sad scenes, it makes you laugh, cry, shout for joy and you get the urge to jump into the story to shake certain people to make them realize what’s going on and knock some sense in to them. (You will know what I mean if you read the book)
Evan has a couple of issues she needs to sort out. She has great freedom and do not know how to use it for the positive way. Thank goodness that she has a best friend Brenna whose head firmly on her shoulders and can give her some good advice.
Winch has many problems and really need Evan. He needs to see things from a new point of view and Evan is the best to get him to see this. Winch is the one of those who changes the most during the story.
I fell in love very quickly for Winch’s siblings and look forward to their stories in the series
This is the best book yet I've read for the author (that she has written alone). I’m in love and really wish I had a Winch for myself.
The cover is so extremely sexy that I get the chills when I look at it.
The title I didn’t understand right away, but after reading the book I got an aha experience and the title really says it all.
The book gets 5 of 6 from me. The reason it did not get 6 is because it is too short for me... Could have one more book about these two and what happens next. The book did not end the way I wanted it to do, but its possible we learn more about them in the next books..
