House Of Payne - Book 4 - Rude by Stacy Gail
The Last Thing She Wanted…
From the moment Sass Stone overheard her social worker call her “broken,” she’s been hell-bent on proving her wrong. A broken woman doesn't have a posse of kickass friends, a foodie lover’s dream job and a string of pretty boys she enjoys playing with. Sure, she has scars, but they’re buried so far down no one even knows they’re there. Certainly her former foster brother, Rudolfo Panuzzi doesn’t know about them. The man she’d dubbed “Rude” could sniff around all he wanted, but it wasn’t going to get him anywhere. He’d never get inside—her pants, or her heart.
…Was The One Thing She Needed
A dozen years and several combat tours in the Marines has a way of maturing a man, and Rude is no exception. His last mission killed his closest friends and almost killed him, leaving him with wounds on both body and soul. When he looks in the mirror, the haunted eyes staring back remind him far too much of his sexy little foster sister, Sass. That’s when he knows there’s more to her than he ever imagined… and he’s imagined one hell of a lot.
When Want And Need Collide
One by one, Rude destroys the defences that have kept Sass locked inside herself. But even as she reluctantly allows him to coax her out of her shell, a dark cloud casts its shadow on their world. Is it something from his past… or hers?

I am embarrassed to say that this is the first book in this series I have read, I know where have I been !!! I cant believe I haven't noticed this series before now !!! I really have been missing out... I am going to go back and read the full series immediately.
WOW.. what a read !! I don't know where to start,, ok here goes...
I absolutely love Rudy(Rude) & Sass(Sassy), this is their story and Oh my is it beautifully heart-breaking.
Sass was abandoned at birth by her birth mother and since then has been thrown around foster homes, she has lived with some truly awful people, until she is sent to live with the Panuzzi's. They are the most wonderful foster parents any child could ask for.
Sass falls in love with them immediately and loves everything about living there, with the exception of her their youngest son, Rudy. He is awful to her from the moment they meet and do not get along the whole time they live together.
Now all grown up, living in her own home. She has a amazing job, great life and finally she feels like everything in here life is good, she has one rule to not get attached to any man and basically only use them for sex then she walks away with no harm done,, until she ends up in hospital thanks to a ex who wont let her go, he threw her down a flight of stairs and nearly killed her, Rude turns up at the hospital to check on her. He wants to help her and also he wants in her pants and heart...
Rudy was a moody, stubborn teenage boy and hated the fact that his parents took in kinds which meant he had to share the bathroom with girls, basically he is a pain in the butt..
Rude goes in the army and goes through a really traumatic experience which leaves him fighting for his life and also regretting never making up with sass.
So when he gets a message that Sass is in hospital badly beaten, he uses this opportunity to help her and apologise for being awful to her when he was younger... when he sees she for the first time face to face, he is instantly attracted to her and decided her wants her and will do what ever it takes to make her, his..
In this book they go through a lot, old diamonds appear and Sassy's world is turned upside down.. Rude will do what ever it takes to keep her safe including kill if needed.. there are a lot of feels in this book and it really was a great emotional, happy, sad, suspense filled novel..
I just couldn't put it down, it was exceptional and I've never read another book like it. I cant wait to see who stars in the next book ...
Overall A must read, very, very well written... it now one of my favourite books...faye xoxo
