From the Inside Flap
He was pretty sure he had--after all, he was a lawyer, he'd heard some seriously inventive arguments.
But this...Opening his eyes, he studied her heart-shaped face. Without all that hair, she didn't look so fragile, he realized. Not that she really was, he was coming to realize. A fragile woman would have broken after what had been done to her. No matter what people thought, Hope hadn't broken. She had been forced to bend, to take unimaginable shit and heartbreak.
But she hadn't broken.
She had to be one of the strongest women he'd ever met.
Still, just looking at her flooded him with the most insane urges--the need to protect her. The need to touch her. The need to see her laugh. To smile...at him.
And she thought he was here because he wanted her out of town? His town? Like he owned the damned ground it was built on?
"I'm not here because I'm trying to run you out of town," he finally said, when he thought he might be able to say in a somewhat level voice.
With that doubt still glinting in her pale green eyes, she jerked one shoulder in a shrug . "Fine. Then whatever you're doing here, would you please just get it done? Please? So you can leave?"
Something moved inside him. It might have been anger. Might have been wounded pride. Might have frustration...or all of the above. "Just get it over with?" he repeated, some of his tension edging into his voice.
"Yes." She swallowed. "Please."
"So polite. Even when you're that pissed off at me. Still so polite," he murmured. "Okay, Hope. I'll get it over with."
Then he closed the two feet between them. He wanted to touch her...he wanted it so bad, he hurt with it, ached with it, would have gone to his knees and begged if he thought it would have done any good.
Instead, he jammed one hand into a pocket, closed it in a fist.
The other, he used the tip of his finger and used it to lift her chin.
He had just a second to see her eyes flare wide before he dipped his head and brushed his mouth against hers. Just the lightest brush--hardly enough to even get a taste.
Still, that one taste blistered through him, rushed through him, setting his blood to boil.
He heard her gasp, felt it...and as her lips parted against his, he wanted, desperately to tease that slight opening with his tongue, see if he couldn't coax her mouth into opening for him, just a little more.
Instead, he whispered against her lips, "I've wanted to do that from the first second I laid eyes on you."
Then he turned around, and without looking at her again, he left the kitchen.
He didn't stop to say anything to Law, didn't stop until he was in his car with the seatbelt fastened. And even, then, he wouldn't let himself look back, wouldn't let himself look and see, if maybe, just maybe, she had come to watch him leave.

The one thing that really stands out to me is when authors have series's that focus mainly on a romantic couple and never let me have favorites! I thought Lena and Ezra from If You Hear Her could never be topped but I was wrong. I loved reading about Hope and Remy so much!! Even though Hope and Remy are the main romantic couple this time around, my favorite citizens of Ash still appeared in a smaller capacity, which makes this series unique in that you get a well rounded view of Ash, Kentucky, in the midst of a horrible killer.
As I said, we got a brief look at this characters in the previous book so I knew a little of what to expect. I truly felt bad for Hope throughout the whole book! Walker did not let up on this girl!! This book explored her backstory in an abusive relationship with her ex-husband and the fact she was hiding from him. Insert ex-husband here. It was enough that Hope almost died in the last book, she was the target once again in her personal life. But Remy made some of the angst go away when he swooped in and fell for her...hard. I liked how Walker started this relationship off on a professional level and it slowly turned into something magical. The chemistry was...whew...hot, and each scene they were in together was ripe with sexual tension. Even after reading a few of Walker's books I am still breathless after reading her love scenes.
Watch me as I gush over the romance part and still want to talk about the other half of the genre...the suspense! There was enough suspense in the previous book to keep me on my toes but this one literally gave me chills.Read more ›
It is Remy Jennings job to put away killers but there is nothing about Hope Carson that screams murderer to him. In fact, that's the last thought that pops into his mind when he thinks of the beautiful and vulnerable Hope. While the locals are insisting on her arrest, Remy is making his move. He knows she is innocent and he's determined to protect her.
Hope's aversion to law enforcement is not helping Remy get his foot in the door but he didn't get where he is today by giving up easily. As Hope and Remy try to start something new her past comes back to haunt her but that's not the only thing dark happening in Ash. A killer lurks in the shadows stalking Hope. The tension in Ash rises to new extremes. It looks as if not everyone will survive the killer's grip this time. Will Hope and Remy come out of this together or be torn apart forever?
I emphatically recommend that the Ash series be read in order! If You See Her picks up right where If You Hear Her ended. If You See Her adds more depth to this sublime series! Hope comes off as a bit weak at first. Having survived a physically and mentally abusive husband, Hope is just now learning to think for herself. These are the things I like about Hope.Read more ›
Above average on the narration ~ story about middle of the line for me. She's got me hooked on the story ARC that is continuing through all 3 books...and I'm dying to find out who dunnit, but I had a hard time warming up to the heroine in this story.
But the narration was excellent! And I'm so hooked that I can't wait for bk 3 ~ I HAVE to know who the baddies is, lol.
Would you recommend If You See Her to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes, but w/ the disclaimer that there are 3 books, and you MUST read them in order, or you'll be lost.
Which scene was your favorite?
Hmm...honestly, a scene close to the end where Hope finally stands up for herself. While bad things happen in this scene, it was like a break through for her character for me. I enjoyed the last 1 hour more than the rest of the book.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
You never know WHO your enemies might be...
Any additional comments?
I want to make clear I DID like the book ~ I just really had a hard time w/ Hope, the heroine. She'd been through so much, and I so wanted to be cheering for her and get that proud feeling you get when you're reading...but I didn't. I just did not warm up to her. I loved Remy, and all the characters from book 1 and the town...and I'm already dying to read Lawe's story. I warmed up more to Nia in the little bit she was in this book than I did w/ Hope the whole story. But the writing was great, the suspense picks up so much towards the end you're going to be angry if you have to wait for next book like me, lol. The overall story ARC that flows from book to book is set up seamlessly, and has me hooked solid. NO way I'm not getting the third book.
And Cris Dukehart's narration was awesome ~ I've added her to my to buy list of narrators.
