ARC REVIEW Headed for Trouble by Shiloh Walker
Neve left home after high school because she wanted to prove to her family that she could make it on her own if she tried. She did, she became a model but her job was getting in the way of her school and then she was swept of her feet by the a rich british man. For ten years she has been gone and for the last six she has been on the run, hiding from William Clyde. With no place left to go, to hide, she returns home hoping that her family can offer her the safety she needs. Being back home Neve still feels like an outsider, the letters she wrote when she was gone all came back return to sender. She doesn't know how her family will react to seeing her again. Especially after the last time she saw Brannon she threw a classic Neve temper tantrum and left, it was also the last time William beat her.
Ian is the sexy Scot that manages the pub in town. Neve's first night back Ian was enchanted with her beauty and it would have lead to a very, very satisfying night if they hadn't been interrupted. And when Ian finds out she is his best friends little sister he gets that sinking, aww shit, feeling in his gut. After talking to to Brannon, Ian decides he's going to go after Neve either way. Neve isn't looking for a relationship with her past experience only being a sociopath who almost killed her and has been stalking her for six years Neve is understandable hesitant. But Ian does his best to woo her and become the kind of friend she needs right now; if that leads to more all the better. Ian is successful, just by being there for her and understanding her and most important to her he believes her story about William.
Moira and Brannon welcome back their little sister with open arms and finally begin to mend the broken ties between them. It's a lot easier now that they know the full truth about what happened in the time she was gone. Let us not forget to mention Gideon, bad boy turned town Sheriff, ex-boyfriend of Moira who's still in love with her. Gideon is as much a brother to Neve as Brannon, he has always been their for her and never believed the gossip about her. This book teases us with the history of Moira and Gideon and some unanswered question about some of the stuff that has happened. It also introduces us to Hannah :) another one of Neve's only true friends in school; and it leaves us off with the start of Brannon and Hannah's story.
Overall, this is a great read. I love the characters and the story line it's funny and suspenseful all the while Ian is the sweetest hottest book boyfriend since Mrs. Walker's Decker. I love me a ginger.
