Thrown Down by Tessa Bailey

Book Description

Overachiever River Purcell was never supposed to be a struggling single mom, working double shifts just to make ends meet. Nor was she supposed to be abandoned by her high school sweetheart, breaking her heart into a thousand jagged pieces. Now Vaughn De Matteo is back in town, his sights set on her...and River is in danger of drowning a second time.

No one believed Hook’s resident bad boy was good enough for River. Not even Vaughn himself. But he’ll fight like hell to win back the woman he never stopped loving, to keep the daughter he never expected, and convince himself he’s worth their love in the process―even if he has to rely on their fierce and undeniable sexual chemistry.

But even as River's body arches under his hungered touch, the demons of the past lurk in the shadows. Waiting for Vaughn to repeat his mistakes one last time...

Thrown Down is the second book in Tessa Bailey's Made in Jersey series.  I have not read the first book (Crashed Out) and I don't really plan on it.  

Vaughn De Matteo left River Purcell four years ago and didn't look back.  So when he finds out that she gave birth to his daughter, Vaughn returns to his hometown of Hook to win back his girl's.  

Andddd... that is basically the story.  I thought the heroine had NO backbone when it came to Vaughn and the damage he caused when he just left her.  

And the "dirty talk" got a little bit REALLY ridiculous.  It wasn't a "turn on" to read.  In fact... all I did was roll my eyes and go "Really...???".  

It got to the point where I just started skimming through it so this book would just END!!

Rating: 2 out of 5
