Cain Black, lead singer and guitarist of BlackRock, is
returning to his hometown of Crystal Lake, MI after
following his dreams for 10 years. The fact Cain is
returning for the funeral of one of his best friends is
daunting and tragic at best leaving Cain tired and
heartbroken. Cain's first night back becomes a night of
healing and reminiscing with old friends and a ton of
alcohol but his world tilts when he meets the beautiful
redhead cleaning up the party. Cain has no intentions of
starting anything new with a woman from his hometown but
there is something about Maggie O'Rourke and her son that
draws Cain to them like a moth to the flame, he just can't
resist. Cain is unable to resist attempting to get to know
Maggie but her own walls of defense are keeping him at a
distance he plans to eliminate as soon as possible.
Maggie O'Rourke and her son Michael have made a home in
Crystal Lake but times are difficult while trying to out run
a past better forgotten. Keeping to herself and making
very few friend's while cleaning other peoples homes is all
she can do to survive with her son. Meeting the brooding
and beautiful tattooed Rock Star is not part of her plan for
the future but with his endearing smiles and his willingness
to be kind to her son, Michael, Maggie is having a very
difficult time resisting Cain Black and his charm especially
when it is directed at her. Maggie resists the
chemistry she has with Cain for as long as she can,
happiness can be just a breathe away but her past is never
far behind threatening something she never thought she would
As the first book in the Bad Boys of Chrystal Lake it
brilliant start. Juliana Stone builds each character to
perfection pulling you deep into the main characters while
teasing you with the others who will have their own story. I
love this series already!
Falling asleep in a different bed every night has made it
easy for Cain Black to forget his past. It\'s been ten years
since he packed his guitar and left Crystal Lake, Michigan,
to chase his dreams. Now tragedy has forced him home again.
And though Cain relishes the freedom of the road, one stolen
moment with Maggie O\'Rourke makes him wonder if he\'s
out on something bigger than fame.
For Maggieâ€”single mother and newly settled in Crystal Lakeâ€”
love is a luxury she just can\'t afford. Sure, she
appreciates the tall, dark and handsome looks of prodigal
son Cain Black. But how long can she expect the notorious
hellion to stay?
The last thing either of them wants is something
complicated. But sometimes love has its own plans.
