*** Reviewed on behalf of 2 Girls Who Love Books ***
Solid read about an ER nurse and a NYC detective. Good writing and the overall story flowed well and had likable characters. Some funny dialogue from a few of the quirky characters which lent to the story.
I REALLY wanted to love this book as I’ve heard a lot of buzz online about this author. However I just had a tough time connecting to the story.
Right from the start I felt lost – there were alternating POV chapters and there were a ton of secondary characters thrown at you. I had a hard time keeping everyone straight. Although this is touted as a standalone within a series- I felt that they probably all would have made sense to me if I had read book 1. Having not though I just felt lost.
As well, for the first few chapters I was puzzled as to just who the Hero was in the story as there was a second male character that Elle was attracted to – I thought who is this story about?? I almost went and looked up the blurb to check.
I’ve read a lot of books lately that have so much secondary info in them that the story about the developing relationship between the two leads kind of takes a backseat – which is what I found in this book as well. It left me wanting more interaction between Ellle and Beckett and less about everything else!
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.
