The Only Thing More Dangerous than the Bad Boy You Left Behind is the Man He's Become… 


NEW from USA TODAY Bestselling Author Sabrina Stark: If she was such a good fortune-teller, she should've seen it coming. But part-time Tarot-reader Selena Moon is as surprised as anyone when Jim Bishop, the bad boy she left behind, returns from who-knows-where to reclaim the one girl he could never forget. Torn between her new life down South and family obligations up North, Selena has no time for love, romance, or any other complication. And who can blame her? The first guy to claim her heart, along with her innocence, spoiled her for the safer, easier guys who came after.

Armed, dangerous, and still smarting from Selena's teary rejection years earlier, Bishop vowed never to return to the city of his youth, where he excelled at two things – inviting trouble and making a mess of things, particularly his relationship with the only girl he ever loved. She's fearful of repeating the past. He's never been afraid of anything – until now. Because with murder and mayhem surrounding Selena, fate, along with an unwelcome rival, might steal her away before he finally has the chance to win her back for now and always.

This standalone new adult novel of over 120,000 words features mature content, sexual situations, and adult language. It's not advised for underage readers.

*************************************
Bishop and Selena have been through a lot in the 2 years they were together. They both loved each other passionately. But when Bishop lies to Selena endangering their future together and the future Selena wants for them Selena has to choose to move forward without Bishop.

5 years later Bishop has popped back into Selena's life and rescued her once again. Selena has no idea why Bishop is back in town or what he wants. Selen soon finds out the Bishop just needs a favor but Selena is still skeptical about the whole situation. What is Bishop's real reason for being here in their hometown? Well that is easy, Bishop wants Selena back and he wants her to know how badly he screwed up.

Selena and Crystal are having some major issues with there Coffee and New Age store. Apparently, it is against the OLD LAW to give Tarot Readings or anything similar. Now they are in quite a pickle because they are fortune tellers and the bulk of their financial safety is Readings.

I really liked this story because it has a little bit of mystery to it. There are things going on with the LAW and the STORE that you have to dissect and figure out who is really behind the problems that Crystal Moon is having to endure.

Conrad is introduced and you know that he is interested in Selena but even as a reader you are cautious of this character. One of those to good to be true kind of guys. And man does that turn out to be the right answer because he turns into such a jerk. After you read the scene in the alley with Conrad and Selena you will be surprised that Selena will even speak to the guy again.

As all this mystery unfolds you have Bishop trying to protect Selena (who of course makes it hard to do). Bishop loves Selena regardless of the time apart and he will not let anything happen to her.

In the end Bishop and Selena come to the conclusion that they are absolutely CRAZY IN LOVE with each other. And none of the other stuff matters.

RATING: 3 1/2 STARS

Happy Reading!
