To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.
Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.
Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.
Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.
Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.
A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.
The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.
But this time around, I can’t have her.
This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

It's been awhile since I've read a Kim Karr book and I've no idea why silly me. I love reading second chance love stories and Kim gives us a great one featuring Jace and Hannah. We get the story from both perspectives and I'm the past. I liked the slow drip feed of their past history it helps us get a better understanding of what happened Bad what a complicated tortured history it was. They started in an unusual way and meet again years later in challenging circumstances. The connection they felt all those years ago is still there but Jace can't move on as he feels like he's cheating. Hannah wants the past to be forgotten so they can move on but she feels like the other woman. I admired Hannah do much for realising her own worth and forging her own path in life. Jace took awhile to grow on me, he acts like a jerk at times which made me want to shake him but he has jus reasons.A beautiful story about second chances, letting go of the past and fighting for the one person you want in your life.

Sexy Jerk series is right! This book has a gorgeous, slightly arrogant jerk who knows just how to put his foot in his mouth. He is an expert at being a Big Shot and will only make a bigger impression.
A second chance romance with some really intense history, Big Shot, has you split down the line of which side to take. When you learn everything, I guarantee you will have a strong reaction. It won't be wishy washy, no, you will have a clear emotional response.
But then you will get over it...probably! It's angsty, needy, and too good to overlook. So grab a bottle...of water, your kindle/book, and settle in for a ride you couldn't have anticipated.
