Down ‘N Derby- Lila Felix
Maddox is running.
By accident, he discovered long ago that he was adopted as a baby and his need to find his biological father has consumed him ever since. Now, on a road trip, determined to find his father and his sanity, and armed with locations and his cousin, Nixon, to help him, maybe he can find the answers he’s been searching for. With nothing but a suitcase and a wad of cash to get him there, lead after lead takes him further from home.
But he’ll find much more than he intended.
He finds Storey, a pint sized pin-up model who has learned painful lessons about guys. Her wounds run deep, but so do his. She knows what she wants, but will she recognize it when it’s right in front of her?
Maddox can’t touch anyone without feeling like his skin is crawling, but just maybe his instinct to protect this amazing girl will supersede his own hang-ups.
If he can brush her skin and start to feel alive inside...everything will change.
So this is what I thought...
Omageeze! Lila Felix Just keeps getting better and better!! I loved this book, and Maddox, and Storey, and, and all of it :). I am so excited for y’all to read this book!
I loved Maddox so much! He is sweet, loving, the perfect gentleman, and when need be- a complete bad ace ;). The story starts and he is off to find his dad, in the middle of the night, with his cousin Nixon. Despite the cowardly way he sat of to find his dad I quickly liked and eventually loved him.
Storey, the funny, loveable, pin-up model/derby girl. Storey has been through Hades and back and is just now finishing paying for it. She meets Maddox and has to work through her demons before she could see him for who he really is and not continue to compare him to her past. But she does and they are the definition of Swoon- Worthy Couple.
This book might be third in a series and about the youngest of the three Black brothers but Maddox and Storey were their own story. They were different from Falcon and Reed, and Owen and Nellie. They had their own trials, and they had their own way of celebrating their victories. They were their own people and thats another thing I loved about this series, and this book. You can expect an original story from Lila Felix every time!
Nixon is a decent sized part of the story, some of the chapter’s were in his POV, and that makes me wonder if we'll hear more about him. But as is, he is a great friend. Reed and Falcon are also a part of this story, with some chapters from their POV as well. And you get to see a continuation of their relationship- thank God (or Lila)- and I was so happy.
Lila Felix did a phenominamazing job and I love her this much more *envision arms as far apart as possible* after this book came out. I am looking forward to her next book and in the meantime I plan on reading this again and again ;).
