Hanna Boudreaux has lived in the small town of Willow, Colorado all her life. The great-granddaughter of the town matriarch, she's sweet, cute and quiet.
Hanna has a moment of epiphany when she realizes her crush for forever, Raiden Ulysses Miller, is not ever going to be hers. She sees her life as narrow and decides to do something about it.
Raiden Miller is the town of Willow's local hero. An ex-marine with the medal to prove his hero status, he comes home, shrouded in mystery. It takes a while but, eventually, Hanna catches his eye.
But after all these years of Raid and Hanna living in the same town, the question is, why? Is Raid interested in Hanna because she's sweet and cute? Or does Raid have something else going on?
Wow, seriously just wow. Raid is truly one of the best Kristen Ashley books I've read by far. It has a little bit of Rock Chicks with Marcus Sloan, and then more of Knight and Creed! Also it shows you more Nick, Knight's brother, whose story I'm really looking forward too. Hanna has a wonderful shy yet no bull carp type of personality. She's known Raid since she was six, even though he doesn't remember her. He comes back from the marines a different man, definitely damage now. So it takes Hanna to help work him through this. Along the way you get to meet Hannah's great grandma who is ninety-eight years old, and hilarious. The epilogue was awesome, but sad. I loved this book, it made me laugh and cry and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters.
