Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.
Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.
Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.
But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.
Author’s Favorite Quotes from Meant for Her by Raine Thomas
Raine: The female lead in Meant for Her is photographer Sierra Stratton. Sierra’s insight into others—especially into love interest, Evan Dorsey—sometimes makes them uncomfortable. Other times, though, such as when she first speaks to Evan, her words are powerful enough to heal.
“I can see that you’re in a dark place,” she said, touching the side of his face. It was just the whisper of a caress, but it made his throat tighten. “It’s good that you honor the memory of this person you loved. But don’t be afraid to live now. What you’ve gone through, it will bring you where you need to be. Even the stars can’t shine without darkness.”
Raine: Meant for Her is a stand alone novel, but characters from my book, For Everly, make appearances. Cole Parker from For Everly is best friends with Evan. Some of their exchanges were the most fun for me to write, including this one:
“How’d you get up here?” Evan asked, trying to keep Miller and Beck from flying out into the hallway.
Cole grinned. “I happen to know the property manager really well. She’s seen me in my underwear doing naughty things.”
Raine: I also enjoyed Sierra’s friends, Hannah and Zoe. Shortly after they meet sizzlin’ hot Aussie Evan, they share this exchange:
“I’ll ask for your check,” Sierra said. “No worries.”
“Ooo,” Hannah giggled. “If you could get your new neighbor to say, ‘No worries, mate,’ that would be fan-freaking-tastic.”
Poking Hannah in the side, Zoe said, “How cliché. Next you’re going to want him to grill another shrimp on the barbie.”
“Only if he says it before he does.”
