Because It’s You (#2)
Release Date: February 20, 2017
Blurb: Marc Polinski is known for having fun, always smiling, and being a third wheel for his friends, Noah and Meredith. A rare one night stand at a Halloween party and running into the woman again sets Marc on a path of no return. He can’t walk away from her, even if he wanted to, and he absolutely doesn’t want to do that.
Elizabeth Boyd hasn’t dated in a long time and if it wasn’t for her sister-in-law, she wouldn’t have been pushed toward the seemingly bad idea of Marc Polinski. She’s not sure she wants to date, but she can’t seem to turn Marc down either. Little by little, she lets Marc wiggle past all of her defenses.
Their relationship is rocky from the start, and with both of them having demons and secrets, things between them are a struggle. Will they be able to overcome their pasts, let each other in, and start building a life together or will they find they were doomed from the start?
Review by Christine:
Because It’s You by Lindsay Paige is a sweet, emotional read with just the right amount of heat. This is the second book in Lindsay’s Carolina Rebels series and can be read as a standalone even though we met Marc Polinski in Back To Me, book one in the series.
Marc Polinski, hockey player with NHL’s Rebels, doesn’t do flings. Marc is more of the relationship kind of guy but after a Halloween party one-night stand he can’t get “Poison Ivy” off his mind. Always a fun loving guy, Marc can’t believe he’s found her but his charms aren’t working like he thought they would. Elizabeth Boyd has scars which have found her morning the loss of her high-school sweetheart husband for years. A night of lost inhibitions has Elizabeth head spinning because as much as she enjoys Marc the guilt of moving on is confusing her and making her wonder if she should be happy with someone else.
Wow, this book was like a gut punch in the emotional department. Elizabeth’s guilt and demons are so rough that it would be hard for anyone to over come them but if anyone can it’s the fun loving Marc who can make that happen. Marc is just as lovable as when we first met him in Back To Me and that love only grows more as you read his story. Over coming his own demons and helping heal Elizabeth only rises his book boyfriend status to epic. This book was beyond my expectations and kept me glued to my kindle. 5 Marco Polo stars for Because It’s You by Lindsay Paige
