breaking the law. I had seen that coming from when we found out that Micah was a cop. Chancie’s character, she seemed a bit of the “hard ball” that knows what she wants and tries to take it. I was really glad though later on in the book, she seemed to realize how she was acting was wrong and she went through the steps to change her life.
I will admit that I didn’t expect a lot from this story from the description. I felt it would be high on the cheese factor and really, I was pleasantly surprised.
Chancie is a 30 year old widow with a 10 year old demon…errr…I mean, son. She owns her own screening service business, which is how she meets the enchanting, and extremely HOT, Micah. Micah is a 33 year old, divorced highway trooper. They meet, the attraction is instant. I know that I thought at this point it would be one of those stories of insta-love that goes to insta-sex, but no. Micah seems to genuinely like Chancie and wants to know more about her, so he lets her set the pace of the relationship. What separates this book from others in this genre is Chancie’s son, Jamie. He is evil. Rude, spoiled, and just basically an all-around brat. He is the speed bump in their budding relationship. Of course, you find out why Jamie is the way he is – which is a bit heartbreaking – but in the meantime he adds a different twist to your basic hot boy meets hot girl love story.
I thought that the writing and pace of this story were good. The characters were not one-dimensional, they all had an intriguing back story that kept me interested in the story was going. It was a bit predictable at points, but overall I enjoyed the characters and the story. I give this book 3 stars.
