Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.
Oh, North and Givon! I really enjoyed this story. It was quite predictable, but none the less entertaining to read. I did find the similarities between book one and book two to be a bit annoying.. you know, girl running from someone, needing protection, the older men who have absolutely no problem sharing this woman they instantly fell in love with.
Other than that, the characters were great. I really liked their development and bantering through out the book as they added a third to their friendship and turned it into a relationship. The hot biker, good cop combo was interesting.
The naughty scenes were better in this book compared to the last book. I think I figured out what about them particularily bothered me… It’s the language. The rest of the book is pretty clean language wise, but then in the bedroom there is some naughty terms tossed in with the sweet, not too sexy terms (like slit and juice, not sexy to me). However towards the end things seemed to come together and because a bit racier in terms of flow and it was much better to me.
I do hope the next relationship has some MM action or at least a variety on the damsel in distress and falling instantly for her heros plot.
I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate high rollers. I try to write characters who aren’t cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love.
I’ve been pretty fortunate in life to experience some amazing things. I’ve lived in France, traveled throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand. I am a mom to an amazing little boy. I’m surrounded by friends and family. And although I love holding a book in my hand, I absolutely adore my ereader, which I’ve named Ruby. I love to hear from readers so I’ve made it really easy to find me on the web.
