Summary

New York Times best-selling author Tess Oliver brings you a sexy new adult romance, book one of the Bluefield Bad Boys series.

We were prisoners of forbidden love, just like Romeo and Juliet but without the poetic, old English double speak and Italian marble balconies. A coal miner's son, Kellan Braddock always knew he'd follow in his late dad's steel-toed boots. He also always knew that he'd never love anyone as much he loved Rylan Merritt. But sometimes love isn't enough.

Seven years ago, Rylan Merritt left Bluefield Ridge with her heart in tatters. Now she's back. And Kellan Braddock, the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, the boy who she loved beyond anything, has grown into a man. Will she risk her heart again?

The story of a first love so strong it never fades.

WARNING: contains adult content. Intended for listeners 18+

sweet and sexy

Wow. This story hits home with the different cliques in society and how some people are so small minded they will do just about anything to keep that divide. Tess Oliver nailed It! Paul Brion did a phenomenal job giving voice to all the characters.

Loved it!

Wow I've only recently gotten into audio books and boy was this one a great listen.

I love a good second chance romance and this one hit the mark perfectly.

Ryland hails from the good side of the tracks but that doesn't stop her from falling for Kellan who comes from the other side. On graduation night he doesn't come back for her and she leaves town without talking to him. Fast forward 7 years and Ryland is back home and things are heatung up between the two again.

Will the past be put to rest and will they get their second chance?

The narration of the book was spot on. Even though a man does the while narration his inflections and changes in voice and pitch were perfect.

But if a let down

I think this story was ok, not very interesting or exiting but that may be down to the narrator who I found to be monotonous, like the. spokes person for Shane and Company. It was just a bit boring and very predictable. I regret paying for audible!

Second chance for boy from the wrong side of tracks

Really enjoyed this audio and book. Grabbed my attention from the first and held it. Kellan was from the wrong side of the tracks and worked in the coal mines. Blaney's been in love with him for years. A misunderstanding has her going away to college thinking Kellan isn't interested in her. She meets Chase, gets engaged, is planning her wedding when she goes to his office to surprise him and finds him having sex with his assistant. Blaney goes back home, gets involved with Kellan again. Can their romance survive the second time around?
