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.

So let me warn you before you start reading this review, that Evan pissed me off. I don't know why. I don't know what it was about him, but he got under my skin. I kept pulling for him, much like Sierra did. Kept waiting for him to come around, much like Sierra. But man, he pulled some douchey moves and said some pretty mean things. Words hurt too dude, words hurt too.
I don't know why it just pissed me off that he kept denying, kept pushing, kept being a self centered a-hole. Sierra is seriously this angel. Like legit, can do no wrong angel. She does so much for Evan. Stuff that isn't required, things that some people wouldn't even think of and I swear it was like acid in his mouth to appreciate her.
So I'm reading this getting all pissed off, then Evan would have a moment of redemption and I would start to like him...then pissed again.. then like him.. Then I even found myself a little upset with Sierra. She is an angel, but damn the girl is way too freaking nice. Camille... uh uh uh... that girl deserved to be slapped. Then Geoff comes into the picture.
For someone who's intuition is almost always on, for the life of me I couldn't figure out why she wouldn't stop spending time with him. Hell, he wierded me out. And the poor dogs. Evan just wouldn't believe her, and even had her doubting herself. Well, how'd that work out Evan?!?! See told you he pissed me off. So here I am thinking this book is just gonna be love and fairytailes, right? Then Raine throws in the Geoff tidbit. She doesn't just add this little bit of drama, she hits you upside the head with it. All the sudden I'm like wait.. what the hell just happened?!?!
The dogs, the break in, the recovery. But then again, I was like Evan WTF! sigh... the Cancer event. I just wanted to cry. I didn't.. okay..maybe just a little...ooooh but the good news is, if you have read For Everly, we get more of the story of Cole and Everly! oOohh and I love love love Sierra's hair!!! I gave this book 3.5 hearts.
