Low broke Cage’s heart by getting with Marcus in Because of Low. Cage went into a tailspin that ended in a DUI. In order to salvage his baseball scholarship—the one thing he truly valued besides Low—Cage must take a summer job. At a farm. Away from Sea Breeze. With lots of cows, but no hot girls. Maybe that’s what Cage needs to get back on track.

But wait—there’s that hostile daughter of the farm boss. She’s pretty and occasionally sweet, and there seems to be a lot of sadness and mystery behind her anger. Cage is dying to strip her down—physically and mentally—in the back of the barn. But is he prepared for what will happen afterward?
My Review:
Cage York has to be one of my favorite boys from Sea Breeze.  Until now he has had major commitment issues and to say he is a man-whore is an understatement.  A different woman practically every night, never to be seen with them again....yeah, I hope he has regular check-ups with his doctor...  All of that aside, he is a severely wounded guy from a very troubled childhood.  His behavior, unfortunately, stems from issues of being beaten down physically and verbally.  Then he thinks he is in love with Low who has been his best friend since childhood.  Sometimes love can be confusing when you aren't sure how to really love someone.  Willow (aka Low) helps him to see that their love is nothing more than what a sibling would have for one another.  By her choosing Marcus in Because of Low, Gage is still heartbroken, even though he knows she is right.  His wildness is out of control after realizing the emptiness all the boozing and nameless women bring him and he has to get a grip on his life before he looses everything that matters to him.  Can his wildness be tamed by only one female?

Enter Eva.  The prologue had me in tears.  She has only ever loved one boy in her life, her childhood sweetheart, an "All American" type of guy.  Gage is far from the childhood love she had.  He couldn't be farther from what she had envisioned for herself.  She has walls that won't be broken through easily, especially by a playboy.

Favorite Quotes:

"Now I needed someone, anyone, to just see me.  Not the tragedy.  Just me."

"Sometimes you just had to enjoy it while it lasts and cherish it when it's gone."

"Cage was free and wild.  He was like a beautiful bird you could never own."

Final Rating - 4.5 stars!
