Blurb: “Tell me a happy something, Sutton.”

I was only seven the first time Grady Bowen whispered those words to me. Cloaked by the black sky under a blanket of stars, it was easy to get lost. He didn’t have any good memories of his own, and needed to borrow mine. I’d willingly give him anything.

Being infatuated with that boy was a beautiful curse. What could have been special didn’t get the chance to bloom. He’d never see me as more than his best friend’s kid sister. That was a hard lesson to learn, but not the most difficult.

Grady had always been struggling against the odds. Eventually he quit fighting and let his family’s reputation own him. Try as I might, those influences were beyond my reach.

He didn’t mean to break my heart. Or maybe he did. I shouldn’t have made it so easy for him. Either way, our wrongs against each other carved new lines between us.

I went four years without seeing Grady—each one more painful than the last. That distance did nothing to dull my feelings toward him. But things are different now. Most noticeably is Grady. I barely recognize this man he’s become. And that’s the way he intends to keep it. Not that it really matters.

Grady Bowen stopped being my happy something long ago.

My Review

Oh My Heart y’all! This flipping story. I love Harloe Rae. I was excited for this book to hit my kindle and WOW! I’m not sure I was quite ready for the emotional beating it was packing though. GAH! It was so, so wonderful though. Grady and Sutton were perfectly made for each other. Their “happy moments “ absolutely melted my heart. Every.Dang.Time! Now, that’s not saying their journey was easy nor was it always perfect and beautiful, but it was their journey and in the end “ the juice was worth the squeeze.” 

Grady Bowen. 

Gorgeous and he was good to the depths of his soul. But only those closest to him gave him enough of a chance to ever know that. His upbringing broke my heart. For so many reasons he feels unworthy. He has secretly been in love with Sutton, his best friends sister for most of his life. She’s everything good and happy.

BUT he doesn’t feel he deserves her and she needs to find someone who does.  I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say anytime something starts to look up for him, another roadblock is thrown in his way. Will Grady ever get a break? Will he finally get to be with the girl of his dreams? And at what cost? 

Sutton is amazingly beautiful and comes from the best family. She has a supportive mother, father, yet super overprotective brother. But he loves her! For years she has secretly loved Grady. Right before she leaves for college she finally works up the nerve and lays it all on the line only to be left heartbroken and rejected. When she returns four years later determined to love on, her heart has other ideas. It’s knows that no matter what it has only ever belonged to one man, Grady Bowen. When she is finally able to convince Grady to take a chance obstacles starting to fall in their way. 

Will Grady and Sutton withstand the rumor mill and all that’s thrown at them?

Find out in this amazing, angsty, five star, MUST READ from Harloe Rae! 

I promise it will be worth all the headaches, heartaches, heartbreaks, and the book hangover you will be left with. 

 My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- SO much HEART in this one little book. This wasn’t what I was expecting from a brothers best friends romance. It was way better! It had me in my feelings and all angsty! The determination of the h to get her H and to make him see himself as she sees him. GAH! You could feel it all coming off the pages. Perfect! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-For Sutton and for Grady this was way worth the wait and so much more. Are you ready for simultaneous melting of your heart…and your panties. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFY Y’ALL!It doesn’t get any better than this! #PERFECTION

Excerpt: I take a closer inspection of this swoony charmer. Not an ounce of deceit registers in his expression. There’s no stony edge blocking his emerald stare. His ironclad guard is nonexistent. Zero inhibitions block the sliver of space between us. Everything is on display for me to see. I should be the one to stop this. He’s obviously not in his normal state and under the influence of hefty narcotics.

Who the hell am I kidding? Basking in a rare smile from Grady is a gift I won’t take for granted. Appreciating from a safe distance will be the true challenge. I test my willpower by trying to evade the sneaky fingers inching up my thigh. But our skin is magnetized and moving is impossible. The golden specks in his eyes glitter at my failed attempt. Yep, he’s onto me. I’m a goner.

As if there was another option.

The itch to comb through his shaggy hair tickles my fingertips. Would he lean into my embrace if I cupped his jaw? The tiniest bit of resolve stops me from acting on those impulses. But it doesn’t stop my brain from working overtime.

I wonder if anyone else has seen this side of him. The romantic in me wants to believe I’m the first, and hopefully only. I shove the fanciful notion aside. “Well, you sure seem to be in a great mood.”

That luscious bottom lip gets trapped between his teeth. I’d love to take a bite. As if hearing my thoughts, Grady rolls toward me. “Abso-fucking-lutely. Why wouldn’t I be? I have a gorgeous woman within reach, ready to take care of my aches and pains.”

This time I really do choke on my tongue. “W-what?”

The hand he has on my leg drifts higher. “You sound shocked, Sutt.”

How could I not be? “That’s an understatement.”

“Stay with me,” Grady croons.

“For the night?”

“For always.” His gaze is smoldering. Damn, he’s sexy. And irresistible. I’m liable to straddle his lap and offer him everything. But the chains of our past hold me hostage. I can’t fall victim so easily.

“Why now, Gray?” Whatever painkillers he’s on are proving to be an effective truth serum. I might as well use it to my advantage.

His blink is slow. “I miss the peace, Sutt. My slice of goodness.”
