Finding Dandelion (Dearest #2)

A New Adult Romance

About Finding Dandelion
When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.

But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate's brother? That’s a shock.

Dani doesn’t regret that night with Jax, just the need to lie about it. Since her roommate has made it clear what she thinks about her brother’s “type” of girl, the last thing Dani wants is to admit what happened.

Jax knows he’s walking a fine line on the soccer team. One more misstep and he’s off the roster, his plans to go pro be damned. Except he can’t seem to care. About anything… except for the one girl who keeps invading his dreams.

Despite Jax’s fuzzy memory of his hot hookup with his sister’s friend, he can’t stay away from her, even if it means breaking his own rules. But there are bigger forces at work–realities that can end Dani’s college career and lies that can tear them apart.

Jax realizes what he’s losing if Dani walks away, but will he sacrifice his future to be with her? And will she let him if he does?

FINDING DANDELION, the second book in the Dearest series, is a stand-alone novel. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.  

My thoughts:

Finding Dandelion is another win by Lex Martin. This story is Dani and Jax story, and we first met this couple in Dearest Clementine, a New Adult story at it's finest.
Dani is such a wonderful character. As much as she was charmed by Jax, and kept wondering why he couldn't remember the one night that everything had changed for her, she doesn't let Jax charm her. At least she doesn't let him know it. But as she gets to know him, she realises behind the cocky, sexy soccer player facade, there's a kind-hearted guy whose life is plagued with secrets. Jax, oh Jax. Such a wonderful guy. He's rich, well admired, and has had to put up so much from his parents. I loved every second of this story.
Another fantastic addition to the NA genre. I highly recommend this book!

5 stars from me
