He just doesn’t count on his attraction to Bella. He figures out right away that Bella isn’t there to win any prizes and his attraction is immediate.
I really enjoyed this one! Bella is Spencer’s sister so she is from the distant branch of the Colton’s as well. Holden and Bella has an instant chemistry and attraction. One that will burn down the pages! Add in the mystery and this one was an edge of my seat read. On a side note though… poor Payne is still in a comma.
