The connection between Dane and Izzy has a primal feel. The protectiveness and concern that they show for each other is hot. Dane’s compass seems to be set to due North and his character doesn’t falter. Izzy’s character is a bit manic. Her caring side is very attractive, but her irrational side is over the top.
Overall, I felt like the love interest grew organically, but some personalities were a bit too extreme and detracted from the story.
Dane’s friends, Spider and Ant, add a lot to the story. Each deserve their own story.
Nice little tie-in to her previous novel, My Dirty Detour.
I don’t think I’ll be able to walk down the chip aisle at the grocery every again without thinking about sex.
Dane and Izzy.
As the New Year begins, they find themselves facing very different circumstances.
Dane is a street racer stuck with a blown engine, no money, and no options after he gets fired for saving a damsel in distress.
Izzy can’t believe she was just rescued by the same handsome stranger she walks past, and lusts after, on a daily basis. With a massive blizzard about to bury the town, she ends up taking him in for the night.
Sparks fly when she brings out his playful side, and he shows her a passion she’s never known before.
As they slowly begin to trust each other, walls come down and tragic pasts emerge. Dane is haunted by the family he never had, while Izzy will stop at nothing to deny her birthright.
When Dane receives an offer he can’t refuse, will one bad decision cost him everything? Or will fate intervene and send these two down the path they were destined for?
This is a full length, stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Please be advised that you will find strong language, attractive men with tattoos, a dog with a cat name, steamy bedroom scenes including one involving Doritos, plenty of character backstory, and a very healthy dose of humor.
