About the book:
New Hope, #2)
Author: Lexi Ryan
Publisher: Ever After, LLC
Release date: October 4, 2013
I grew up wishing on stars.
My father taught me to believe…in destiny, in magic, in happily ever after. Dreams were my scripture and the starry night sky was my temple. Then Mom stopped believing, left him, and took us with her. At the age of sixteen, I cashed in my dreams to pay the rent, pawned my destiny to keep my sisters together.
Now, seven years later, I’m returning home, grieving the death of my mother, and settling my sisters back into the life Mom threw away. I never intended to stay. I don’t want to deal with my father, who is so invested in the spiritual world he forgets the physical. I don’t want to face William Bailey, whose eyes remind me of the girl I was, the things I’ve done, and the future I lost.
This would all be easier if Will hated me. As it is, I have to hold my secrets close so they won’t hurt him more than they’ve already hurt me. But he wants to be in my life. He wants what I can’t bring myself to confess I sold. He wants me.
I find myself looking to my stars again...wondering if I dare one more wish.
10. He has a sense of humor. I suppose this might be a bit of a cliché, but only because it’s true. There is nothing as sexy as a guy who can still laugh when the going gets tough. Except for one who can make me laugh.
9. He’s thoughtful. She had a long day at work so he made dinner or put the kids to bed or brought home her favorite bottle of wine. SEXY. Seriously, men, studies show that guys who do housework have sexy 10-times more frequently than guys who don’t. (I made that up but it’s probably true.)
8. He’s present. In a world of cell phones, tablets, and twelve bazillion responsibilities, perhaps it would be realistic to have our heroes working on their phones through dinner or so distracted about a business merger that he doesn’t notice the heroine’s legs in that ridiculously short skirt. No. Heroes are present and in the moment. And even if life is tough and he’s distracted more often than not, being with the heroine is what makes him come back to the moment.
7. He’s strong. I’m not talking physical strength here (though, seriously, yum) but emotional. Contrary to every stereotype, this doesn’t mean he can’t cry. Crying is a way of processing emotions and emotional strength doesn’t mean you don’t feel. It means you are capable of processing emotions and still functioning.
6. He’s empathetic. One of the sexiest things about Asher in Unbreak Me and William in Wish I May is their ability to empathize with the heroine and understand why she made the decisions she did.
7. He’s intelligent. Intelligence comes in many forms, but it’s a must.
6. He’s loyal.
5. Tenderness. As much as we like our heroes to be hard badasses when necessary, his tenderness can be way sexier than his steel will.
4. He listens. Perhaps this one goes with empathy, but it’s a must and so sexy.
3. He thinks she is sexy. Attraction is so much hotter when it goes both ways.
2. Patience. With her. With life. In the bedroom…
1. A dirty, dirty mouth and mind enough to know when to use it—Enough said. ☺
