Synopsis from Goodreads
Peter Parker Penn.
Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy.
In fact, if there’s a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it’s his.
Parker’s spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back.
To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad.
For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do—mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken.
Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed.
Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right.
One thing leads to another, and suddenly he’s growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he’s as bad as everybody says he is.
Yet she won’t listen.
She’s convinced that she can save him.
Little does she know, Parker isn’t worth saving, and never will be.
My thoughts 💭
Another Lani Lynn Vale book I couldn’t put down.. Parker thinks he’s a bad guy due to things he did when he was younger but he’s really a great older guy set in his ways. Kayla’s young, full of life and she doesn’t really know what she wants to do & tries stuff out to see if it’s what she wants to do. She shadowed a detective and the things she saw led her to see being a detective isn’t for her. Older man & younger woman but Kayla and Parker fit well together. I think it’s a 16 year age gap so if that bothers you this book may not be for you. The letter Kayla’s dad wrote to her had me tearing up and laughing. I like this series so far! I love Janie and Kayla’s friendship😂😂 their pacts are hilarious! I can’t wait for the next one!
