Two years ago, Maggie Branson walked in on her boyfriend having sex with another woman. Maggie dumped him on the spot and never looked back; she had no intention of ever laying eyes on his cheating ass again. But now she has no choice and needs to accept a commission from him. She decides to do the damn work, collect her sky-high fee, and get away from him, as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, he seems to have other ideas…
Two years ago, Joe Carlisle was an arrogant, womanizing dickhead - and now he knows it. When Maggie finally agrees to do the sculptures for his new restaurant, he sees this as a second chance with the woman that he shouldn’t have let get away, as an opportunity to show her that he’s changed. Unfortunately, she has no interest whatsoever in offering him anything… least of all a shot at redemption.
When tragedy comes in to Maggie’s life, it’s Joe who’s there to hold her hand and pull her through the darkness. But is that enough for her to forgive all the history between them? Should she try again with Joe; could she try again with Joe? Or are some things just not possible to forgive, or forget?
At least she didn’t get beaten up….
So this was the last freebie I got in the Fighting For Love series. Four women and four men. I liked the women in this series even though I thought they put up with a lot more than they deserved. I did not like the men as much, the only one who wasn’t a douchebag was Adam.
No character was beaten up in this issue which was nice for a change…even though I thought Joe could do with a kick to his head.
In this story we have a very emotionally vulnerable Maggie who’s Mother is going through some issues with her health. She needs to come up with a lot of quick cash to pay for surgery. Enter Joe, the ex-boyfriend who cheated on her with numerous waitresses in his restaurant. He wants to employ her artistic talents for a new restaurant. Maggie is desperate, so she takes the job.
Joe’s a changed man. He realized a year after they broke up that the sleeping with multiple women out in the open, instead of behind Maggie’s back, had lost its appeal. Yuck!! Sorry Joe no redeeming for you. I couldn’t get past it, even with his apologies and support in her time of need.
Lots of the other couples having sex and a little catching up with what is going on in their lives. Some really bad stuff heading for Mia and Nick which will be in the next book.
