He’ll help unleash the new woman in her…
Special Ops soldier Griffin Reid doesn’t exactly have happy memories of growing up in Sunshine, Idaho. He’s only come back to recover from a war injury, and while he refuses to admit he’s in a weakened state, he finds comfort in the last person he’d expect.
Kate Evans teaches fourth grade science in Sunshine, the place she’s always called home. Dreaming of graduate school and a happily-ever-after, she’s desperate to break out of the monotony of Sunshine. Luckily, a certain sexy man has just come back into her life.
To Griffin, Kate as always been his little sister’s friend, but now he’s finding her to be so much more. As both attempt to forge their paths, they must decide if their passionate connection can turn into something lasting…
Rumor Has It features one of my favorite troupes, the ‘She Is All Grown Up.’
“Look at you,” he said. “Little Katie Evans, all grown up and carrying condoms."Kate’s life is full of complications, leaving her no time for a social life. Her family is comprised of a recovering addict father, teenage sister from hell, and a little brother who dresses like a superhero. Kate has had a crush on her best friend’s older brother, Griffin, since she was 10. Now that he is back in town to attend his sister’s wedding she is a bundle of nerves. The author gave Kate the cutest nervous tick, she spouts random facts.
“Trojans built protective walls around their city,” she said. “Like condoms. That’s where the name Trojan comes from.”Griffin left Sunshine for the military the moment he turned 18, visiting only a few times. Back in town to attend his sister’s wedding to his best friend, Adam.
“Great." Grif blew out a breath. “My best friend and my sister swallowing each other’s tongues. This is nice. Really. I should have come home sooner.”Holly warns him to stay away from Kate but a single hot, forbidden kiss at his sister's rehearsal dinner and Griffin is smitten. The chemistry between these two is explosive. AnotherJill Shalvis I’ll be rereading. Highly recommend to contemporary romance readers.
