I tried to find this on another thread but no luck so far. I would call this book Romantica (explicit romance with an HEA). Here's what I remember:
The H is some kind of cop/law enforcement. In the opening scene, he is in a park waiting for an informant. He sees the h sitting on a bench eating an ice cream cone and is instantly attracted.
He winds up talking to her and they make a date to meet for dinner. The h is a grad student (I believe) and is staying with her aunt or uncle while going to school. I think she works part-time in a bookstore (not positive but I remember she had a job).
On the first date, they wind up getting it on in the ladies room of the restaurant. I remember a scene later on where the bad guys go after the h and I think there is a day-time shoot out on the street. I also seem to remember the hero takes the h to meet his family (he has a big family).
The writing style reminds me of romantic suspense like Shiloh Walker or Lisa Marie Rice.
Any help would be appreciated.
