“I don’t trust men, they only ever take what they want and throw you away like yesterday’s trash. The day I met Dex was no different, until I started to let him in. He could see ME, not the person I have become to avoid being hurt. Then I had to question everything I thought I knew, because he was different.”

Traumatised and screwed up, hard ass Ruby Sinclair never stays too long in one place, never letting anyone get too close. Always running to the only protection she knows –her brother. But a chance meeting with Dex, changes everything.

“My life was perfect and then one day everything changed, my whole life was turned upside down, FOREVER. I became a shell of the man I use to be. Then Ruby happened, she was the breath of fresh air I didn’t know I needed, or wanted. How can letting her in feel so wrong, but so right at the same time?”

Dex has inner demons that torment him constantly. It’s meant to be just for the night; the last thing he expected is a tattooed beauty oozing sex appeal to leave him breathless. Once he’s had a taste of her, will he be able to stop?

With an undeniable sexual attraction that devours them, neither one wants more, but both don’t want anything less.
When push comes to shove, will either of them give an inch?

Can he teach me to trust again?
Could she teach me to love again?

They were destined to cross paths… Because sometimes when two broken people come together, they can once again become whole.

***Can be read as a standalone. Some parts of the book do intertwine with book one and may contain spoilers. ***

***Kristin – #NerdGirlSoldier’s  Review***
Under the Surface was one of those books that once I started, I didn’t want to put down. It grabbed my attention and didn’t let go. The characters were incredible, although I do feel that a few of them like Sam and Sarah could have had bigger roles than they did. They were secondary to the main characters, Dex and Ruby, but I feel that because of their relation to Dex it would have been nice to learn more about them. The plot was riveting and had twists that had me on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed the banter between Dex and Ruby; the chemistry between them was off the charts and my kindle I thought was going to melt.

Both Dex and Ruby have issues with relationships and trust, but as the book goes along, they both grow to learn things about themselves and each other. They learn that it’s okay to open up and to feel. I love how Ruby calls Dex out on his jerklike behavior he shows at times. And I love how Dex gives it right back. You wouldn’t think they work, but they do in their own way.

This is the second book in Love is not Enough series, but it can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend you pick this one up and give it a try. Now that I have, I’ve purchased the first book to read. Happy reading!
