Sometimes the biggest risk is playing it safe…
Gen Richards is tired of living down to her family’s expectation of the helpless blind girl. Resurrecting her high-school bucket list that begins with “kiss a total stranger” seems just the thing until she finds herself in a panty-melting lip lock with her big brother’s best friend.
Chance Anderson thrives on adrenaline, but Genny’s the one risk he’s not willing to take. His recklessness a decade ago landed her in the hospital and ejected him from her life. He’s bad for her and everyone knows it—especially her big brother.
Chance reluctantly helps Gen complete her bucket list in order to keep her out of trouble. Running through a freezing fountain, playing Spin the Bottle while fending off a mad horde of stinging insects, and skinny dipping with homicidal attack swans don’t hold a candle to the real danger: falling for the one person he can never have.
Will joined him on the end of the pier, feet hitting the water with a splash. “You let her go.”
A waterbird landed on the surface a few yards out, then took off with something in its beak, water spraying from its wings. “I had no choice.”
“Like hell you didn’t. You’ve seriously got the most fucked-up logic, little brother.”
Maybe he did. “When you love someone, you have to let her go.”
“When you love someone, you fight for her.”
“Now you’re the one with the fucked-up logic, big brother. You can only fight for someone who is willing to fight for herself.”
Will studied his toes beneath the surface of the clear water and scrubbed a hand over his closely cropped head. “It scares me that that makes sense.”
