Carissa Teodoro knew what she wanted in life, to marry someone she loved, be a mother, and be the best wife she can be to her husband. Carissa thought she had it all until her highschool sweetheart, now ex husband kicked her out while she was pregnant to hook up with someone else. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the ex seems determined to try to get full custody each time he takes her to court. Now her crappy card has a flat and she is stranded by the side of the road with her baby, enter Joker.
Joker recognizes Carissa right away and while thy have not seen each other in years it rubs him the wrong way that she doesn’t recognize. Joker knows he has changed since high school but she was the one girl he wanted and knew he couldn’t have. Carissa is everything sweet and beautiful, while Joker is dark and had to find his own way. Carissa though seems to think she needs to repay Joker for his kindness and despite how hard he tries to stay away he realizes he has a chance at having something he never had before, a family.
Loved this. Carissa and Joker are complete opposites but they work. I loved that Joker has a nurturing side when it comes to Carissa and especially her son. Wanted to kick Carissa’s butt, he was a jerk and just selfish. All the favorites are in this book, had some really funny moments. Another great Kristen Ashley read.
