I Can Be the Man I was Meant to Be… (Because Of You by Connie Lafortune)

*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.*
This is the second book that I have read by Connie Lafortune and she has shown that I can love more than one guy at a time, fictional guys that is. I fell just as much in love with Hunter, than I did with Logan in The Claiming of CallanThe Claiming of CallanThe Claiming of Callan by Connie Lafortune

Blurb:
For 21-year-old Hunter Davis, being a lifeguard on one of South Carolina’s most popular beaches has its benefits. With his chiseled body, panty-dropping good looks, and penetrating blue eyes, he’s every woman’s dream and every father’s nightmare. So why would he want to commit to one woman? Love is not in his vocabulary. For 18-year-old Riley Hamilton, it’s just the opposite. Her father left when she was six years old, and her mother has been angry and bitter ever since.

is a compelling story filled with passion, longing, and soul shattering guilt. This story is one of a kind, true to life, and the characters are 3 dimensional and easy to relate with. This is a coming of age romance that presents insurmountable grief, deceit at it’s worse, and a pure love that will change Riley and Hunter forever.

“When I held her small hand in mine there was this connection that I hadn’t felt in so long. I have to keep this on friendly terms no matter what her touch does to me. Riley’s way too young and innocent for the likes of me.”

We begin with Riley, creating a new life in South Carolina, which she is hoping will include the father who abandoned her so easily when she was an innocent little girl. She is willing to put the past behind and leave her neglectful mom to pursue this relationship. When she encounters a tattooed hunk, Hunter, swimming in her father’s pool, someone better throw her a lifesaver because she is already drowning in desire for this stranger. She fears to trust any man after all the men in her life have deserted her and wonders if anyone could ever love her, including Hunter.

“A wicked smile spreads across his face. He cups my cheeks, licks his lips and dives in for a kiss that curls my toes while turning my insides into molten lava.”

As soon as Hunter, walking sex god and notorious bad boy lifeguard, meets Riley he has the uncomfortable feelings of wanting to save her from the tumultuous waves of life and at the same time rock her world. He has been known for using women and alcohol to drown out his painful past but now all he wants to do is immerse himself in Riley. But first he must give her all of his guilt ridden self and confront the past or he fears he will never be worthy of her.

“I want to lock you in my room and keep you naked for days, exploring every inch of you with my hands, fingers, mouths, and tongue.”

I highly recommend to any lover of New Adult Romance. Especially those that want to read a love story about conquering fears, embracing the past, and loving passionately with your heart, body, and soul. The affirmations are sweet, the secrets are revealing, and the sex is hot as the sand on the beach. After meeting the sweet, romantic, smoldering hot Hunter you to will want to move to South Carolina, don your bathing suit and head to the beach. Who knows maybe you will find you a sexy lifeguard that will sweep you off of your feet.

“Is this what you want? Because once I’ve tasted you I will have to have you every day for the rest of my life”

Because of you teaser
