I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Enticing Emma by N.J. Walters is book two in the 'Summersville Secrets". I felt this was a standalone book and is around 122 pages.
Tucker Martin has been attracted to Emma Howard since they first met. Tucker knows he wants a permanent relationship with Emma but she is very put offish. Tucker has seen what a caring, funny person she is and the more he knows the more he wants her. But when she thinks he is trying to get to close to her she gets colder to him. Tucker finds that an apartment in Emma building is available he quickly moves in to be closer o her.
Emma has been hurt before by men like Tucker and has not intention of doing so again. Emma is finding it hard to ignore the feelings that he is bring up in her but she still tries too. But in a weak moment she gives into him and they have a quick encounter. After that Emma has moved into a more defensive mode to try and avoid him and fight these feelings more so. For Tucker it just confirmed that they are made for each other and he is determine to bring their relationship forward.
