Some books just cry out for an editor. This first of the Bad Boys of Red Hook series cried out so loudly it’s amazing no one at Signet publishing heard or heeded the call.

When bar owner and former Brooklyn cop Pete has quadruple bypass surgery, Bree, who runs the Crow’s Nest Bar in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn with him, asks for help. She can’t do her job and take care of Pete’s youngest adopted child, Nikki, a ten-year-old fifth grader. Although she calls Pete’s adopted son Logan who tends a vineyard nearby, Logan calls another adopted son, Storm, who flies in from Auckland, New Zealand, where he designs yachts.

Storm and Bree have a history: He ran out before deflowering her years ago. The first third of the book consists of them sniping at each other while ostensibly watching Nikki. Storm says he’s capable of looking after his little sister even though he teaches the ten-year-old to drive and helps her register a stray dog she picks up in an alley, a dog Bree says Nikki shouldn’t adopt.

As Pete gets out of the hospital and returns to his apartment across the hall from Bree over the bar, Bree changes her tune and says she’s willing to have attachment-free sex while Storm is in town. Storm, who previously wanted just that, turns her down because he knows she’s not that kind of girl and it’s best that they hold off. Instead Storm decides to wine and dine her, borrowing a yacht he designed and taking Bree out for a sail then having a catered dinner brought in when they get back to port and finally spending the night with her — oh, yes, and having sex.

I received this Back to You in the mail and read a few pages while I was waiting for my mom to do a few things around town. I was hooked by page one! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book and can not wait to read more by Robin Kaye.

Breanna Collins is a busy girl taking care of her boss that is more like a father to her, her bar/dinner, and a little girl. She has her hands full so she ask for help from her boss' sons. Little does she know the son she is going to get help from is Storm Decker. Oh boy there reunion was full of drama from the moment they seen each other.

Storm has come home to help take care of his father. Little does he know that Breanna (the girl he left behind) is staying in his father's apartment. Storms goes through a lot of changes in his thought processes in this story.

I loved ready about Storm & Breanna I can't wait for the next in the series. I know I will be on the look out for more books by Robin Kaye. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451413555, Mass Market Paperback)

Award-winning author Robin Kaye proves that home is where the heart is, even for the bad boys of Red Hook, Brooklyn ….

It would take a miracle for Storm Decker to return to Red Hook—or a tragedy. The neighborhood holds too many painful memories of his troubled childhood, along with the mistake that sent him running from the kindness of the ex-cop he’d come to consider his father. But when Pete suddenly falls ill, Storm is called home to face the past he tried to leave behind long ago…

Breanna Collins never expected to see Storm again after he left town without a word, breaking her heart. She’s angry that he can’t seem to appreciate all the changes in their hometown. But she still feels a powerful connection to her old flame. And unless she can remind him of all the reasons to stay, she knows he’ll never stick around long enough to give their romance the second chance it deserves….
