One in Waiting by Holly Trent Part of the Den of Sin Series
Emilie Beaudelaire hasn't been back to New Orleans since she left seventeen years ago. Her parents and step-parents didn't want to deal with the secret that she was carrying Now, she has returned to New Orleans because her uncle is in the hospital near death. Emilie stays at her family hotel during one of the "Den of Sin" events.
Leary Marshall is the first baseman for the minor league team, The Reedsville Roosters, is at the hotel because Emilie's brother Henri is one of the team sponsors. He doesn't know he is about to run into his high school sweetheart that he last heard from via her family's lawyers after she ripped out his heart and stomped on it. Leary has been in a committed relationship with the right fielder for the team, Ren Thompson, for the past year. When Leary and Emilie meet again at the hotel, sparks fly.
After Leary and Ren receive a five game suspension, they turn to Emilie's ranch and the heat between the three intensifies.
Den of Sin is a multi-authored series that revolves around a fictional hotel called "The Beaudelaire". This is the fourth "Season" of books. This season revolves around the Beaudelaires, the family that owns and operates the hotel. I received a bundle of three of the five books in this season to review. I requested it because I was intrigued with the concept of the connecting books and their themes.
"One in Waiting" was a hot book! Emilie is strong on one hand and yet damaged on the other. I loved the strength and confidence that Emilie has grown into thanks to the family that raised her after she left New Orleans. Yet, she is still damaged due to her parents.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
