Collier is a 38 yr old atty who is in line for a judgeship. His mother has been long dead and he has tried all his life to please his step-father. With his older step-brother injured and depressed he must hold himself to a high standard to meet the requirements of a judgeship. He will make his family proud, something he has always done. He meets a young woman when he rescues her from the side of the road where she was thrown out after refusing to go to bed with a man. She is a waitress who is putting herself thru college and does not meet the upper class standards of Colliers family.
This couple could not stay away from each other. They both tried but they could not deny the heat between them.
There is a murder mystery in this book that makes their love even harder to hang on to.
I like that Collier finally realized he needed to make himself happy and worked to keep his love.
A happy ending but with some pain involved.
I highly recommend this book
Ms. Baxter brought us into a world of greed and money and power and how some of those people use the powerless for their own pleasure and showed us that even though they may be powerless, they aren't weak.
Brittany was found wandering on a slick and cold road in the Tennesee mountains one night as Collier drove by. Stopping to see if she was okay, he found a beaten and confused young woman in need of help.
Collier is on his way to a remote cabin he has and the rain is so bad he can't turn around to take the woman to a hospital, not that it matters since she refuses to go. Instead he takes her to the cabin. Stranded for days he learns little things about her that make his blood run hot and cold.
Who is she? Who beat her up so bad? And why?
When the rain clears and he takes her home he finds himself more befuddled than ever. Attracted and sorry for her, Collier knows she isn't for him. She is from the wrong side of the tracks.
But he finds that the trailer she lives in and the two jobs she works to stay alive and not to mention the brother she has in prison can't keep him away.
He's going to ruin his chances for judgeship if he continues to try and see her, but he can't stop. She's everything he ever wanted in a woman and more and he can't have her. She on the other hand will not get involved with a lawyer who is about to become a judge that will probably use her and throw her away like trash. But Brittany can't stay away from him either.
Love at first sight.
Not only is there backgrounds too different, but there is a secret brewing...it will tear them apart forever. Can love survive such a scandal?
Amazing, I loved this story. Full of heartfelt love and pain, it is emotional and fulfilling. Definately worth the read.
Collier Smith has worked his whole life to prove to his stepfather, Mason Williams, that even if he doesn't have his blood running through his veins, he can make him proud. With his stepbrother, Jackson, out of the running, Collier has been nominated for a federal judgeship. Then he meets Brittany Banks, not knowing how she is or how she could effect his life.
While the sexual tension is high between the two, they are intimate often which rids the tension between the two. It is basically a story about a trailer trash woman who isn't good enough for the man she loves. The man is torn between making his stepfather proud and the woman he has fallen in love with. While this isn't one of the better books I've read, I would recommend it on a rainy day.
