Release Day Blitz-Review, Excerpt and Giveaway: Never Too Late by Micalea Smeltzer (Willow Creek #2)

Title: Never Too Late
Series: Willow Creek #2
Author: Micalea Smeltzer
Release Date:  April 21, 2015

I’d never met anyone quite like Mathias Wade.

He was brooding and arrogant, but I loved him anyway.

Together we were wild and uncontained—a hurricane raging.

Then I had to leave, and words were exchanged that could never be undone.

But now I was back, and Mathias better watch out, because this bitch wasn’t finished with him.

Game. Set. Match.
All is fair in love and war, right?

Mathias Wade, the lead singer of Willow Creek, is used to getting everything he wants. Except for Remy Parker—the one that got away. Childhood friends that grew into more, Remy was the one constant in his life until she moved away. In anger, he lashed out and broke the only girl he ever loved. With temptation around every corner Mathias drowns his sorrow in women and alcohol. When the band returns to their hometown for the holidays the last thing Mathias expects is to run into Remy—but she’s back, and she’s not done with him.

Remy never forgot Mathias or the pain he caused her. When she moves back to the place she grew up to take care of her ailing grandma her heart is set on revenge. She’s determined to make Mathias fall in love with her all over again—only this time she’s going to break his heart.

But Mathias never stopped loving Remy—and she soon discovers that her feelings haven’t disappeared either.

Can two people too stubborn for their own good overcome their own demons and find the love they always deserved?

I jumped up on the counter and he moved to stand in front of me, bracing his hands beside my hips. I kicked my legs against the cabinets like a little kid as he stared down at me intensely. I wasn’t sure what he was looking for in my eyes, but he must have found it, because he cupped my cheek and leaned in.

“This feels like when we were younger,” he whispered. “Like no time at all has passed.” His words echoed my previous thoughts.

I closed my eyes, feeling his breath fan across my lips.

God, I’d missed him.

It didn’t seem possible to miss someone I’d grown to hate, but I did. 

I was pretty sure that when someone like Mathias came into your life they were impossible to forget.

He was like the sun, burning so bright that even once he was gone I was still blinded.

“Did you ever miss me?” I asked. “Even once?” I held my breath, waiting for him to explode—because that was Mathias. He could be nice one minute and an asshole the next. I wouldn’t 
put it past him to kick me out for my question.

Instead he surprised me by leaning in impossibly closer and nuzzling my neck. “Always.”

My Review

Just what is it about a bad boy that makes him so damn irresistible?  Whatever it is, Mathias Wade has it in spades...and then some.  His rough and rude personality paired with the fact that he is so hot and sexy, plus the lead singer of a hugely successful band?  Yeah, not going to turn that down for sure.

Remy, his ex from high school, is just as rough and tough as Mathias, with a no-nonsense attitude--and ready to give just as good as she got from him when they split seven years ago. Neither thought they'd ever see the other again, but once they do, sparks fly...again.  And we get to see everything they thought they'd left behind come smashing right back even stronger than before.

But when there's still secrets being kept with a relationship as emotional and intense as their's?  And when it's played out in the spotlight?  Get ready for some powerful scenes that will have you frantically flipping the pages to see how everything turns out.  That was me as I read this story-totally glued to the book from start to finish.  Add in the fantastic cast of characters that we met in book one, and what you have is a thoroughly engaging read that will have you clamoring for more.

4.5 extremely hot and intense stars for Never Too Late, recommended for 18+ for some really well written hot and steamy scenes plus adult language.  An excellent addition to the Willow Creek series, and the author now has me just about begging for the next story!
