*Coming to KU October 29th*
Nineteen-year-old Tempest Jackson wants a baby.
No, her biological clock isn’t ticking, but she’s desperate for unconditional love. Rejected by all except her brother and soon to be married off by her father for financial gain, she aches for someone to hold close and call hers.
Enter Ledger Thorne. Soccer god, devastatingly handsome and her brother’s rival.
Once upon a time they had a thing. A beautiful thing. But while Tempest thought she was madly in love, Ledger was only using her for petty revenge.
So Tempest has a plan: seduce the sexy jerk who broke her heart, use him to get pregnant and then leave him in the dust like he left her, to marry a stranger.
Only the problem with making babies is that it doesn’t feel like revenge. It feels a lot like that thing they used to have: Hot and stormy, and intense and intimate.
But Tempest isn’t a fool. She’ll stick to the plan.
Because wasn’t it Ledger who turned their beautiful thing into something ugly?
Now it’s her turn…
NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of Bardstown, a St. Mary’s Rebels spin-off.

My Review 💋
He’s the guy made of thunder and thorns. He doesn’t know what love is when all he’s ever thought about is revenge and all he’s ever known is anger. And it’s better that we stay away from each other.”

Plot Summary :
Tempest Has issues. Usually people stay away from their enemies but she might be the only one who gravitates towards him like crazy. Yes , its a "him". Ledger Thorne. Her big brother's eternal enemy. The one she should definitely stay away from. But her heart wants something else and being a romantic at heart , she is going to go after the beautiful Thorne. That is until he proves her wrong. There are no happy endings in real life , only broken hearts. It took him so less time to turn something they had into something so ugly. He broke her romantic soul.
Ledger breaking her heart was not the painful part. Him still stomping on it continuously might be. But now it is her turn to get the closure. She will use him and discard him once she is done. Only then will she get her revenger and the baby she wants. What she didn't expect was the process to be so torturing. And before she knows it , ledger might do the one thing she never thought he would be capable of again. Break her heart.
They call me the Angry Thorn, don’t they? Well, I’m going to show her exactly what that name means.”
Overall Opinion :
Saffron has been teasing us with Ledger and Tempest from the past few years and I must say it has been a tough journey for me lmao because I am not a patient person. I used to highlight their scenes Like crazy in the other books by this author because the chemistry and angst these 2 have is absolutely amazing!
This one is a standalone but I kid you not , saffron had me sobbing in the first 6-7 chapters. The pain , the angst was too much ughh. I expected this from these 2 because they have had their thing goping on for a few years and obviously they would have pent up issues , what i didn't expect was for it to be so painful!! Ledger and Tempest are truly saffron at her very best for me. I have highlighted so many scenes , so many quotes and even some side character scenes. Everything was amazing in this book!
There is not one time when I don't feel that 1 book for a couple by this author is ever enough. I need so much more! I can't wait for more books in this series now. And not to mention that this author has created this masterpiece when she was pregnant , she is truly magnificent !!
