Synopsis: Genevieve Rodriguez’s life isn't panning out the way she’s always envisioned. At all. Not only is she exactly one “D” away from getting kicked out of school, but her heart is in pieces after her long-time crush marries someone else. For Genevieve, sunny Silver Strand has never felt more dismal.

Then Adam Abramowitz, her super-cute, super-smart physics tutor—who never seems to notice even her sexiest tops—tells her his Visa is about to expire and he’s going to have to return to Israel. Suddenly the words pop out Genevieve's mouth before she can stop them. “Marry me.” At first, it's a joke...until it's not. Because in that brief, unexpected moment, everything changes. The rules. The boundaries. And Adam and Genevieve are about to discover what happens when you push the limits.

My Review
I've been following this series since the first book, Hide Me, and as it continues I just fall more in love with Scott's writing. 

In book one we were introduced to Deo, a man with no direction until a grief-stricken woman unexpectedly comes into his life. In Own Me, Genevieve, Cohen's (Mentioned in book one and the main character in book two) sister is heartbroken after Deo marries someone else. Months prior she was ready to lay it on the line and tell her how she felt about him when he fell in love with someone else.

Genevieve is being tutored by Adam and they have become friends since meeting. When Adam's green card is up Genevieve hatches the plan for them to marry in order for Adam to stay in the country. What starts as one friend helping another becomes much more when the chemistry between Genevieve and Adam can't be denied and they find themselves feeling things for one another. 

I really enjoyed watching the dynamic between these characters and I loved the way that Genevieve handled herself in a mature way after Deo married. Where some women would be scheming to break them up, Genevieve picks herself up and keeps on going. As for Adam he was such an attractive character me. Nerdy, nice, and so sweet but also passionate and has a lot going on for him. Genevieve and Adam were a great match for one another even if takes a spur of the moment marriage to bring them together.

Once again Scott has left me wanting more from this series. I've fallen in love with all her characters, especially Deo, but Adam is a close second.

Risk Me by Lexi Scott 
Publication Date: July 28, 2015 
Also in this series: Own Me 

Synopsis: For Cohen Rodriguez, getting dumped by his girlfriend was bad enough. Being told he's “not impulsive enough” was just the cheap parting gift. Still, he takes a break from his über responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it's not exactly turning out the way he thought...

On top of that, there's Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they've recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they've never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person. Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.

Synopsis: Sometimes it's easier to run... Ripped apart by guilt and grief, nineteen-year-old Whit Conrad grabs her stuff and runs from her super-conservative home and family in Pennsylvania and hauls ass for sunny California. All she wants is escape. Now she has a craptastic apartment, a job at a tattoo parlour, and even a friend-who's-mostly-benefits. Then she meets a sexy, inked, surfer-dude who has the potential of capsizing everything... Deo Beckett is adrift. Underemployed and over-boozing, Deo knows he should be doing something more with his life. Being something more. All it takes is a pin-up hottie with a smart mouth—and a bruised soul—to force Deo to start looking below the surface. To wonder if there's more to life than being a beach bum. Now he's falling for Whit...and hard. But Whit ran from home for a reason, and she'll go to any lengths to keep Deo from learning the truth...
