Bad Reputation

(Colliding Hearts)
A novel by

Tucker Greenleaf has spent her whole life trying to rise above her questionable childhood. With her past finally behind her - broken heart, broken family, broken dreams - she's got her sights on a bright future. And she's got a plan to do it. No men. No distractions. No tolerance for big egos and even bigger trucks. And it's all going smoothly...until Joey Fox walks into her life.

Joey Fox is too charming for words, drifting through college life on a trust fund and a gorgeous smile. He's not ashamed to admit that he's cultivated a bit of a reputation. Daddy's money. (Lots of it.) One night stands. (Lots of them.) And zero apologies for any of it. It's working well for him...until he spies a girl with long, red hair and mismatched shoes.

Both are trying to outrun their pasts. Both have something to prove. She wants to save a small part of the world. He wants to escape from under his dad's thumb. When their two worlds collide, sparks and parking tickets fly, secrets come to the surface and heartbreak seems like a given.

Will Joey be able to break down the wall Tucker's built around her heart? Once Tucker knows everything about Joey, will she be able to forgive him enough for both of them? And most importantly...can love and forgiveness find their way through and give Joey and Tucker a chance they never thought they'd have?
