Never Been Kissed (Boys of Bishop #2) by Molly O'Keefe

As the daughter of a wealthy politician, Ashley Montgomery has had enough of her parents’ expectations for her future and is going her own way, volunteering to work at a refugee camp in Africa. But her act of charity turns dangerous when she takes a boat trip and is abducted by Somali pirates. Enter Brody Baxter, who was a bodyguard for the Montgomery family ten years ago and doesn’t think twice about coming to Ashley’s rescue. Handsome and tough, Brody has always done what needed to be done. So he swoops in, saves Ashley, and brings her to a place where she can rest and recuperate without the glare of the press and her demanding family: Brody’s small hometown of Bishop, Arkansas. But Ashley soon realizes that she’s not the only one in need of healing.

Holed up with Ashley in a tiny apartment over his brother’s bar in Bishop, Brody is tempted and torn in ways he never anticipated. Beautiful Ashley, vibrant despite her ordeal, fearless enough to love him beyond his wall of self-punishment, is now determined to save him. But with a little faith and a lot of love, they just may find happiness in each other’s arms.

My review:
Wow! This book takes you on one heck of a ride.  From Somalia to the backwater town of Bishop, Arkansas there is an almost constant roller coaster of emotions going on.  Ashley fell in love with Brody when she was just 17 but she was too young and he was on the job.  Now 10 years later she is older and her love for him has changed and grown too.  They have a second chance at love and she isn’t going to let anyone get in the way this time not even Brody.  This book is the second in the Boys of Bishop series but can be read stand-alone.  The only problem I had with this book is the cover.  This is an interracial romance but that is not what is shown on the cover.  I received an early eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  Maybe they will change the cover before they release it either way it is a great read and I recommend it.
