from the outset. It’s part sweet love
story and part mystery/thriller. Sadie’s
life is threatened and she must learn to trust Parker, who is trying to keep

misunderstanding between the main characters.
It wasn’t a predictable story at all. The thriller storyline involving Sadie’s
abusive ex-husband is quite exciting. I
had a hard time putting this book down until it was finished.
impressive. I didn’t feel that it was
formulaic or predictable. It will keep
you engaged and excited and satisfy the romantic in you. At its heart, it’s just a sweet love story.
With a hot cop. 4 stars.
