After a tragic shooting left him wounded and in disgrace, all that remained of former deputy sheriff Jude Anderson’s life was a shattered femur, the standard disability package, and a host of issues. Jude seeks sanctuary in a remote upstate cabin and tries to get his life back on track.
Life has other plans when Jude finds a dead man draped across his front doorstep. The victim is the first hookup Jude’s had in, well, ever. Once Jude processes that shock he gets another when he learns that the homicide detective sent to investigate the murder is Rowan Muir, Jude’s ex. Their split was ugly, and Rowan isn’t the forgiving type.
Now Jude is drawn back into a world he left behind: murder investigations and fighting the undeniable attraction he has for Rowan. Rowan is still holding onto a substantial grudge. But both men need to figure out how to cope with being thrown together again, because it’s becoming increasingly clear that Jude is being targeted by a murderer – one who may have come from Jude’s past for revenge.
My experience with this book went as follows:
“Oooooh, yes! Second chances, lovers-to-enemeies-to-lovers, growly alphas, damaged characters, and murder! BRING IT ON”
“Sex, hot sex, yes!”
“Ummm…sex kinda makes these guys act like dorks and I’m losing the characters”
*skim* *skim* *skim*
*skim the sex too*
“I guessed that whodunnit a mile away”
“meh…the book was ok. Strong start, dragged in the middle, decent end”
“oooohhh…look! there’s a book 2!!!”
Not awful, fairly entertaining. Read for the high alpha-male value.
