Book 3 of the DreamMakers. A red-hot collaboration from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors VIVIAN AREND and ELLE KENNEDY.
He wants to rock her world—in bed and out of it
For former Army Ranger Dean Colter, sexual escapades and wild flirtations are the norm—but it wasn’t always that way. Years ago, the DreamMakers co-owner was a one-woman kind of guy until he tore Emma Lee’s heart apart. Yet he’s never forgotten her, and when Emma waltzes back into his life, a second chance is suddenly within his reach…and he’ll be damned if he’ll screw up again.
She wants her world to stop spinning apart
Emma’s no longer the naïve girl she used to be. Now a successful designer in the fashion world, she refuses to let Dean’s killer smile and sweet-talking ways distract her from her goals. But being the target of Dean’s full-out seduction isn’t easy to resist, even as the dynasty she’s built teeters toward disaster. This time she might the one who breaks both their hearts when she has to walk away.
I just found out about this series recently and had to get a hold of one of them at some point soon. When it came up on NetGalley, I thought it was worth checking out now. I found that it was definitely worth it!
It all starts with a sexy kiss in the dark... and leads to the discovery that Emma knows Dean--he's the guy who broke her heart. She wants to put it all behind her, but when they run into each other again, this time him realizing it's her, he doesn't want to let her go this time. So he goes out of his way to get back in her life and convince her to give him a second chance. It doesn't take long before they realize they can't stay away from each other.
Don't Walk Away is a sweet second chance romance. I loved to see Emma and Dean fall back together, watch them work everything out. The only thing that threw me off was the few chapters that were told from other character's points of view. Otherwise, it was a great story by Elle Kennedy and Vivian Arend--I can't wait to read the rest from DreamMakers series!
