When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.
But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate's brother? That’s a shock.
Dani doesn’t regret that night with Jax, just the need to lie about it. Since her roommate has made it clear what she thinks about her brother’s “type” of girl, the last thing Dani wants is to admit what happened.
Jax knows he’s walking a fine line on the soccer team. One more misstep and he’s off the roster, his plans to go pro be damned. Except he can’t seem to care. About anything… except for the one girl who keeps invading his dreams.
Despite Jax’s fuzzy memory of his hot hookup with his sister’s friend, he can’t stay away from her, even if it means breaking his own rules. But there are bigger forces at work–realities that can end Dani’s college career and lies that can tear them apart.
Jax realizes what he’s losing if Dani walks away, but will he sacrifice his future to be with her? And will she let him if he does?
FINDING DANDELION, the second book in the Dearest series, is a stand-alone novel. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.
I have a new favorite BOOK!!!!!! Holy SHIT! Why didn’t I read this series sooner!?!?
Here I thought that I loved Clem and Gavin, but then came Dani and Jax! Wow, I fell so hard for these two.
I love when an author reforms a man-whore. I loved Jax in Dearest Clementine and couldn’t wait to see why he put on assholeish airs. I had to know!!! Seeing him obsess over Dani was incredibly addictive!! I’m so glad that Lex went with a dual perspective in this one, because just as I couldn’t tolerate him being such a jerk, I got to hear his reasoning.
Dani….my heart ached so much for this girl. She had so much on her plate, enough to take anyone down, but not this girl. She just kept trudging on like a little soldier and I loved her to bits because of it.
Once again Lex does a beautiful job layering this story, creating a gorgeous depth to both of these characters and their situation. It. Was. Fantastic.
