Crazy For You By: Rachel Lacey
""Rachel Lacey is a sure-fire star." --- Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author
SHE'S TAKING A WALK ON HIS WILD SIDE
Emma Rush can't remember a time when she didn't have a thing for Ryan Blake. Haven's resident bad boy is just so freakin' hot-with tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough rough-around-the-edges sexiness to melt all her self-control. Now that Emma's over being a "good girl," she needs a little help being naughty . . . and she knows just where to start.
Before Emma's brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything--including himself. When her brother doesn't come home, Ryan needs to turn his screwed-up life around to honor his pledge. But he knows he's still not the right kind of guy for someone as sweet as Emma. Only he can't stop wanting to be with her. Wanting her. Falling in love with a good girl may be the craziest risk this bad boy can take . . ."

This novel was the second in this series 'Risking It All' that featured Emma Rush and bad boy Ryan Blake ['had tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough round-round-the edges sexiness...'] that was simply one good read. I enjoyed it from the first page and yes it was quite a yummy one as this author can only give to her readers. We find that Emma and Ryan had always had that something for each other since childhood, especially Emma. We find Emma is wanting to shake things up in her boring life and who would she pick ...no other than Ryan...her longtime friend to help her do it. All I can say is wow, this will be one hot sexy read for their chemistry is off the chart.
Now they were grown and the only thing that seemed to hold Ryan back was his promise he had made to his friend Derek [Emma's brother and his best friend] who had died while serving in Afghanistan that he 'would protect her [Emma] from everything --including himself.' Now, how was he able to get over this hurdle without jeopardizing a long time friendship? What will happen as Emma is wanting something more in her life and that would involve Ryan?
