Between the Sheets (Boys of Bishop #3) by Molly O'Keefe

After years of running, Wyatt Svenson has now parked himself in Bishop, Arkansas, trying to do the right thing and parent a son he didn’t even know he had until recently. Over six feet tall and packed with muscles and power, Ty likes to get his hands dirty, fixing his motorcycle at night and keeping his mind away from the mistakes he’s made. Then his pretty neighbor shows up on his driveway, doesn’t bother to introduce herself, and complains about the noise. First impression? She should loosen up. Funny that she turns out to be his son’s elementary school art teacher—and the only one willing to help his troubled boy. Ty needs her. In more ways than one.

Though Shelby Monroe is safe in her structured life, she is drawn to Ty’s bad-boy edge and rugged sexuality. What if she just lets it all go: her worries about her mother, her fear of heartbreak, and her tight self control? What if she grabs Ty and takes a ride on the wild side? “What if” becomes reality—intense, exhilarating . . . and addictive. But Ty wants more than a secret affair. He wants it all with Shelby. But will she take a chance and open her heart? Ty is determined to convince Shelby to take the biggest risk of her life: on him.

My review:
Break out the tissues.  This is an emotionally tough read.  Shelby & Ty have each made poor decisions in the past and they are now dictating their future.  Ty is trying to be a dad to his 11yo son. A son he didn’t even know about till a couple of months ago.  Shelby has issues and is also dealing with a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s.  Ty and Shelby start out using each other as an escape valve from their problems.  When feelings enter the picture it gets downright harsh.  This book is a roller coaster that will have you laughing, crying and sighing.  I’ll admit there were times I didn’t know if I could stand it anymore but then I’d read on in hopes for a happy ending.
