Genres: Romance, Contemporary

You’ve met the men of BAM. Now get to know the rebel.

Who is Reid Matthews?

A child, abandoned and unloved.

A teen, adrift and disregarded, using his superior tech skills for the wrong intentions.

A young adult, his future overshadowed by his prison record, his life an endless loop of loneliness.

Until he is given a second chance and a new life emerges.

A career he once thought he could only dream of, surrounded by people who show him that family and home aren’t simply words.

And a girl who shows him the greatest, most complex code he could ever write. 


My Review:

Melanie Moreland has become one of my favorite go-to authors for all things romance, she knows how to deliver a great story filled with substance and swoon worthy moments. Needless to say, Reid did not disappoint at all. Ever since finding out that he was getting his own story, I couldn’t wait to read the book and it’s by far my favorite book in the entire series. 

At the beginning we are introduced to Reid Mathews, after being abandoned by his mother when he was just baby, he grew up in the foster care system without ever knowing what it was like to have a family to call his own. There was no one to really look out for him and as he grew older he discovered that he was good with computers and one wrong decision had sentenced to jail at such a young age. Without knowing anything else he taught himself as much as he could while he was in prison and that’s what helps him out when he get out. Reid is able to find himself a job in the IT department of non other than BAM. It is then that his future changes forever. Not only is he devoted to his friends/bosses, but he has proven to be a brilliant tech wiz at the company. That is when he meets Rebecca Holden, that his life takes an unexpected turn of events. 

As the new marketing manager working at BAM, Rebecca Holden is an important member of the group. As a liaison for The Gavin Group she is only supposed to be at BAM temporarily, but one look at Reid has her changing her mind about leaving soon. She is a strong woman who knows what she wants and that attracts her to Reid. He is completely taken by her the minute they meet and he wants to make her his. But there are things in his past that could threaten his future and he is in constant struggle to move on for good. He worries that he is not good enough for Becca and the longer he takes to move on the more he is risking a future with her. 

I absolutely loved reading this story, it was filled with humor and romance. There is a twist to the story that I found interesting from the start and had me reading non stop until the very end. The interaction that Reid had with previous characters in the series completely tied the story very well. Although this book can be read as a standalone, it would be best enjoyed to read the previous characters in order to get a better background story. There wasn’t a huge conflict in the story to be solved other than Reid’s self doubt and how he finally moves on from his past. The ending was EVERYTHING! It’s definitely a must read! I would highly recommend reading this story and any others by the author, you will not regret it. :)

My Rating:


We spent the entire day together. I worked on the system, with Becca acting as my assistant. More than once, she rose up on her toes for a kiss. More than once, I had her pressed to the wall, devouring her mouth. It was the best install I had ever done.

“You are such a good kisser,” she murmured against my mouth. “How can a virgin be so good at kissing?”

Pleased she was enjoying my caresses, I grinned. “I have kissed girls and women, but, as I said, I haven’t gone beyond that.” I cupped her face, dragging my lips across her cheek to her sensitive earlobe. “I was waiting for the right person.”

“And I’m that person?”

“Yes,” I stated with conviction, dropping another kiss to her mouth. “You are.” I ran my fingers over my lips, then grabbed my drill.

“Why do you do that?”

“Do what?”

“You press your fingers on your mouth every time we kiss.”

“Oh, ah…” I stalled, looking over her shoulder. I felt heat prickle my neck.

“Tell me,” she insisted. “I want to know.”

“I like how it feels when you kiss me. I guess I’m sort of sealing you into me. Keeping your taste locked into my mouth.”

She stared at me, blinking and silent.

“Is that weird? It’s weird. I’m sorry.”

I wasn’t prepared when she launched herself at me. The drill flew one way; we hit the wall behind me, a mass of entangled arms and legs, her mouth on mine, hard and passionate. I slid down the wall to the floor, taking her with me. She was ferocious in her intensity, her kisses deep and possessive.

“You say the most erotic words,” she groaned. “Sealing my taste into you?”

“So, not weird?” I moaned as she kissed her way down my neck.

“No, not weird.” She hovered over me, her dark hair falling like a waterfall around us. “You turn me on like no man has ever done, Reid. Ever.” She kissed me again.

I was good with that.
