WOW! What a great book :) HJ Harley, you are awesome !!! I was up til 4:30 am reading this book, I just couldn't put it down. I'm not usually a fan of first person but this was really written well!
I loved Jordie from the very beginning, her no-nonsense independent attitude and the witty banter she shares with her best friend Rachel. I always thought it'd be a blast to own a bar :) Add in that she also happens to be a mother of a 9 year old totally surprised me but with a little help from her sister in Jersey and a daughter that sometimes even resembles an adult in stature, you have one kick-ass heroine. A heroine that is totally fine with how things are... her own bar, her own apartment (buidling since she owns it) and her own rules. Until hottie Nathan enters the picture....
And enter the picture he did. I really think she fell for him from the very beginning when she was getting her but kicked by a dude 3 times her size. It was quite a nice change for Nathan to watch this little scrap of a female get knocked down and get right back up fighting. She didn't need anybody and she didn't know who he was which enabled them to form a great romance with ornery interaction which i loved, without all the pomp and circumstance at the beginning.
Unfortunately for the whole group, there is plenty of that 'pomp and circumstance', paparazzi and even a deadly darkness from Jordie's past to deal with and overcome. Our author does a tremendous job working these great characters through each sticky situation they find themselves in. With a great amount of suspense, much love, even more understanding and an unforgettable depth-developed bodyguard or two, this story turned into one of my favorites :)
I can't reveal anymore no matter how bad I want to tell you how it all ends. You just need to read it and I know you'll love it as much as I did !!!
Currently on the hunt for more HJ Harley books :) 5 stars for sure !!
