This is Pete & Reagan's story.....

When we left book #2 Pete had gotten into some trouble.  Book #3 picks up with Pete in prison 2 years later.  He is being released to house arrest if he agrees to go help for 5 days at a camp where Kids with special needs will need his signing ability.

What Pete does not know is that his lawyer Bob Caster is Reagan's dad. He also does not know that Reagan came to look for him after there 1st encounter with one another.  It was a terrible 1st meeting that is for sure.  

Reagan was raped a little over 2 years ago at a frat party.  She was in a ball in the corner of the bathroom when Pete went in to use the restroom.  He found her curled in the corner with ripped panties and blood running down her thighs.  He tried to help her as best as he could.  He gave her his hoodie to cover her ripped top and helped her get her skirt back on correctly and fixed her panties as best he could.  Pete has never forgotten this girl.  When Pete went to prison he asked his brothers to look her up and to make sure she was ok.  Reagan left the party that night with her friend and would not let Pete go with her.

Reagan looked up Pete after her ordeal was put to rest and found out he was in prison.  Reagan begged her father to take on his case and help him get out with less time.

Now Pete is at the Kids camp which takes place at Reagan's dad's house and he sees her again for the first time.  Reagan is super guarded and no one can touch her with out her going ninja on them.  Her dad is the only male able to touch her without her flinching, even 2 years later.

Reagan and Pete speak about the night that they met and that Reagan kept her eye out for him.  Their friendship blossoms.  It is a very beautiful story of a girl trying to overcome her fears and a boy trying to obtain a future he deserves.  Their friendship grows like weeds and within 2 days they have massive feelings for one another.  Pete leaves at the end of the week to go back to NYC with his brothers and Reagan decides to go with him since she has to get back to school in another week anyway.

Their relationship and feelings get more intense and Reagan wants to be a normal girl who can be touched and loved.  Pete does not want to hurt Reagan and soon they have to have a conversation about that very thing.  They are both scared to go forward but they are scared together.

Matt is as always a beautiful soul and his role in this story is know different.  Right away Matt and Reagan hit it off and became fast friends. Reagan already loves all of the Reed brothers and everyone they consider their family with includes Emily and Friday.

Excited for the next book in the series which will focus on Matt.

Rating: 4 STARS
