Ripple (Persy & Sully)

Rate this book
Her voice was a rough whisper. “Sometimes I feel like I’ll never have peace.”

He reached up to cup her cheek. “Honey.”

She loved the way he said that. Sometimes his ‘honey’ was thick and sweet, sometimes low and gruff. Other times it was full of need and want and passion for her. She wanted to drown in his words, in him.

He leaned over and pressed a chaste kiss to her lips. “I’m right here with you. I know it won’t be easy, but we’ll get through this. We’ll find our peace.”


***

Persy has been restless and running from her tragic past for years. Since leaving Ireland, she’s stayed the longest in Masillia, soaking in the quiet calm of the sea and now working at the local pub, the Seashell. Is she staying because of the peace she finds here? Or because of the passion she shares with the sexy cop who spends his nights with her?

Sully never planned to stay in Valleria long-term. His one-year assignment with the local police is coming to an end, and soon he’ll return to his life back in Ireland. Yet, every night, after work, he finds himself at the Seashell. When the bar closes in the early hours, he walks Persy home—then takes her to bed. Their nights are full of passion, not promises, which works for them both.

Or it did.

One night, everything changes for Sully and he realizes he wants more than an affair. He wants her, all of her.

Can their relationship move past the lure of the night to the bright light of day? Can they move beyond the aches of the past to the dreams of a future together?

Ripple...

Seaside Valleria book 2. A really good story. This is Silly and Persy story. An emotional rollercoaster for sure. Sully is total alpha of hotness and has issues. Perry has a snappy attitude but with lots of baggage. Persy at times got on my last nerve. I would have given less stars but I like the other characters in the story.
