Can’t Wait Wednesday – THINGS WE LEFT BEHIND by Lucy Score


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THINGS WE LEFT BEHIND by Lucy Score, the third book in Score’s Knockemout series.  I haven’t reviewed this series on the blog yet but I fell in love with Knox and Naomi in the first book, and I’m already enamored with Nash and Lina as I’m reading the second book. That gives me very high hopes that Score’s latest installment will be just as wonderful.

From Goodreads:

There was only one woman who could set me free. But I would rather set myself on fire than ask Sloane Walton for anything.

Lucian Rollins is a lean, mean vengeance-seeking mogul. On a quest to erase his father’s mark on the family name, he spends every waking minute pulling strings and building an indestructible empire. The more money and power he amasses, the safer he is from threats.  Except when it comes to the feisty small-town librarian that keeps him up at night…

Sloane Walton is a spitfire determined to carry on her father’s quest for justice. She’ll do that just as soon as she figures out exactly what the man she hates did to—or for—her family. Bonded by an old, dark secret from the past and the dislike they now share for each other, Sloane trusts Lucian about as far as she can throw his designer-suited body.

When bickering accidentally turns to foreplay, these two find themselves not quite regretting their steamy one-night stand. Once those flames are fanned, it seems impossible to put them out again. But with Sloane ready to start a family and Lucian refusing to even consider the idea of marriage and kids, these enemies-to-lovers are stuck at an impasse.

Broken men break women. It’s what Lucian believes, what he’s witnessed, and he’s not going to take that chance with Sloane. He’d rather live a life of solitude than put her in danger. But he learns the hard way that leaving her means leaving her unprotected from other threats.

It’s the second time he’s ruthlessly cut her out of his life. There’s no way she’s going to give him a third chance. He’s just going to have to make one for himself.

    This sounds really interesting – I recall someone once telling me that most men can’t understand a woman’s drive to have a baby, while most women can’t understand a man’s drive to leave a mark on the world whereby he won’t be forgotten… Rather rigidly binary in many ways – but somehow that comment has stayed with me and I’m reminded of it now:). I hope this one proves to be as enjoyable as it sounds, Suzanne:).

    I loved the first book in this series and have the second to read. I need to get to it before this one comes out. Great choice, Suzanne.
