Pain can leave even the strongest of people weak and hollow. But when fate brings two weak souls together, will the love they find mend the fragments that are barely holding them together, or will the weight of their past finally cause them to crumble?
Max Delucca has spent seven years trying to forget the betrayal of his past. He lives his life from day to day never looking forward and never looking back. The walls around his heart keep anyone from getting too close and prevent him from feeling too much... Until he meets her.
Her entire life, Janie Silver searched for the kind of love that wouldn't leave her broken and more importantly, wouldn't leave her behind. She longs for a love that can heal the wounds of her past and give her the future she knows she deserves. She thought she was looking for something that just didn't exist... Until she meets him.
Danny's on Main is where their story begins. A neighborhood bar where strangers become friends, friends become family and some... become lovers.. it all started on Thursday nights.

My Thoughts :
We come into this book with Janie & Lylia's Thursday night tradition of going to Danny's on Main where they drink and make guys nervous. From boob grabbing to very vocal discussions of sex, all the guys are in various stages of embarrassment & arousal. Not only has the bar become a tradition of fun for the girls, they have also found a family within. One night, Janie & Max take it to the next step which is perfect and horrible all in one. I loved so much the family that they have built. Everyone has their own secrets and problems yet they accept one another for who they are and love each other no matter what.
While this book focuses mainly on Janie & Max, we are also introduced to many other characters and are given small windows into their lives that make you yearning for the next in the series so you can find out more. I, personally, am waiting for Lylia & Gage's story.. This is a top-notch beginning to a series! I think you'll love it, whether you are an erotic fan or just a romance fan! Give it a chance! :)
