Type: Romantic suspense with a bit of humor!
After a rough deployment in Afghanistan, Murphy Dolan arrives home in the middle of the night, wanting nothing but his bed. Except, a beautiful stranger is sleeping in it.
Running for her life and hiding her identity, Kate Bridges claims a rental mix-up and refuses to move out. She’s the only person who can identify the most notorious hit man in the country, and she has no money left to keep running. But how long can she hide the truth from Murphy? And can she trust him when trouble finally catches up with her?
I loved this book! ❤❤❤ And it’s free! What more could you ask for? Well, at the back of the book there is a link to sign up for the author’s newsletter, which says it will get you book two free as well! I did it, but haven’t received my free book, so I’m hoping the offer is still good. I’ll let you know.
Now, what did I love? EVERYTHING! This book is beautifully written and paced. No breaks, no boring moments, no flaws, just well done storytelling from beginning to end, with a terrified heroine, Kate, and an injured cop/soldier, Murphy.
Kate is terrific. She’s been through so much in her life and still has the capacity to laugh. One of the charming things about her is her addiction to chocolate. She stashes chocolate everywhere. She also never swears…at all…in moments of surprise or stress, she thinks in chocolate expletives…”sweet cocoa-bean heaven”…which made me laugh. Pretty nice stress relievers.
I think everyone who reads this story will fall a little bit in love with Murphy. Wounded warrior? Of course he’s adorable. He also realizes from the beginning that the gorgeous woman who refuses to leave his home is hiding something, so he uses all of his cop skills to discover the truth. He also likes to find and steal her chocolates!
Separately, they are great characters…together the sexual tension fairly sizzles! The difference is that they wait, neither being in an emotional place in their lives to explore the obvious chemistry between them. It was sweet…and hot!
I can’t fail to mention a whole town full of characters that I’m sure will make appearances in future books, and I am looking forward to seeing much more of them. This is an opportunity to dive into what looks like a captivating series, with a free copy of book one, so pick up your copy today and…
