I received an ARC of this book through a giveaway from the author.
False Intentions (False Series book two)
Marcus has come up with a plan to get his life back. He’s set up a rematch against Yoel. He’s procured an apartment not far from Madison’s, and he plans to win her back if only so he can have his old life. Yasmine is moving to New York a few months before her school starts. What she doesn’t count on is sitting next to Marcus on the plane and continually running into him. She feels tremendous guilt over her attraction to her brother’s rival and her soon to be sister-in-law’s cheating ex.
When Marcus shows her a completely different side of him that no one knew existed, though, she can’t help her curiosity. She promises herself it will only be one night, but one turns into two, two turns into three, and so on, but while they are quickly falling for each other, she still hasn’t told him who she really is. When he finds out, will he be able to look past it? When Yoel and Madison learn who she’s been seeing all this time, how will they react?
Book two in a series. Sports romance with a HEA. Mature audiences only.
I really didn’t know where this book was going to go once I saw it was about Marcus. You know, he’s this big, bad, cheating fiancé in the first book, but we see a whole new Marcus in this book, and we get inside his head on why he cheated all that time (not that there’s ever an excuse for cheating, but it was nice to see why he did it). I grew to actually really like Marcus in this book.
My favorite scene, hands down, was Yasmine lighting ALL of Marcus’ boxing paraphernalia on fire in the middle of his apartment when she thought he’d cheated on her! I about died laughing.
I had a hard time looking past the cheating aspect in the first book, so I’m really glad this didn’t have that. I loved this book, though. I don’t know if there are plans for any others after this one, but I’m not sure if they could beat it!
