The Redirection of Damien Sinclair by Nancee Cain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Reunion of Rich Boy and Servant Girl
The Pine Bluff series features a fun, varied group of twenty-somethings living in small town Alabama. I love how each character has unique quirks and life circumstances. In the fourth installment, cranky attorney Damien fights off his budding attraction to his childhood sweetheart, Harley. It’s the reunion of the over-responsible boy and the little girl with stars in her eyes.
Damien’s wealthy family employed Harley’s parents as cook and butler. Damien, his younger brother Angel, and Harley shared childhood spats and adventures. As teenagers, Damien and Harley fell in love, but their parents squashed their romance due to socioeconomic differences.
Flash forward to present time. Damien has just sustained a trauma involving his career as a divorce attorney, and Harley arrives to nurse him back to health. This time they don’t have their parents standing between them, yet there are still haunting barriers to their love.
Harley tells Damien,
“You know, I credit myself with your success as a lawyer. Think about all those years you practiced arguing with me.”
Unfortunately Damien has had too much success at helping his clients divorce each other, which has led him to be cynical and frightened about love.
Damien and Harley meet Harley’s former lover, Mark, and the woman who loves Mark, Jinx. Jinx owns a big dog and it sounds like Mark, Jinx, and the dog will be main characters in book five.
It was the biggest goddamned dog Damien had ever seen. His tail swept across the floor like a windshield wiper.
Looking forward to future books in the series!
