Hangry: adjective—feeling irritable or irrationally angry as a result of being hungry.
Sometimes, Crockett felt that in her soul.
And, of course, the one time that she’s being ‘irrationally angry’ would be the time that the hottest guy on the continent walked into her place of business dressed in prison orange.
She should’ve been afraid.
She should’ve taken one look at him and walked the other way.
But, she didn’t.
Crockett Archer, better known as a doormat extraordinaire, didn’t walk away from the people she knew needed her. She’d never been able to do it with a father that didn’t love her, and she wouldn’t be able to do it with a man that didn’t think he deserved a chance at love.
One look is all it takes for Zach Caruso to know that Crockett could be his.
All he would have to do is snap his fingers, and she’d fall right into the palm of his hand.
Which is why Zach turns around and walks far, far away.
He tries not to look back.
He tries to leave her be.
But then he sees how she’s treated by the people that are supposed to love her, and all cognitive thoughts seem to flee his rational brain.
One second, he’s running in the opposite direction. The next, he’s playing her knight in dingy armor.
God help her.

Not my first time reading the author and I have read the previous books in this series. This one was not too much of a favorite to me but I still very much enjoyed it.
Crockett and Zach are one in a pot. After Zach got send to prison for in my eye doing something good…after getting out early his first trip is to a dinner for a first real meal. That’s where he meets Crockett, and what a meet…everyone in the dinner except the heroine was staring at the hero…because he was wearing his prison uniform still. Crockett, my heart goes out to her for all the abuse she is getting from her own family, her grandfather is the only good thing in her life…until Zach. That’s where I took a turn because the hero was ONE OF THE BEST HERO’s because of his heart and what he does and gives the heroine. I think the harsh treatment and the heroine letting herself be a doormat made it hard for me to fully get into it but truly it does happen in real life and just because I don’t understand it, it was a little different for me. I still enjoyed watching these two come together. I love Lani’s writing because it’s real life issues and the characters are always unique.
