After reading a previous book by Lucy Leroux, I was excited to have the chance to read another one of her works. Codename Romeo by Lucy Leroux turned out to be related, in a small way, to the other book I read. This addition was SURPRISING but EXCITING as I could relate some of the characters back to those I already knew. This wasn't the only thing keeping me reading this book. Many of us are suckers for a LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENT WITH A SOFT HEART. I'm no different. The summary of this book PULLED ME IN and the HEART-WARMING feelings kept me going. The desire to love and trust someone who is keeping secrets is all too relatable as well.
From the Inside Flap
"And it's not your mom's fault. She's sick, and she can't take care of you right now. We were both in the wrong place at the wrong time."
The gut-wrenching sniffles began to subside as he paused in front of double-paned glass windows. The snow was still coming down fast. He could see where the road met the curb below, but only because the snow level was a different height.
What would have happened if he'd stayed at the hotel with Jason? Julietta had barely made it to her door.
Luna could be wandering the hall right now, searching for help that wouldn't arrive for days. He had no idea how serious Julietta's illness was, but she was down for the count on the eve of what promised to be one of the year's worst blizzards.
Luna was blinking heavy lids. Her rosy lips parted before she yawned hugely, her forehead pressing against his shoulder.
"I take it back. Maybe we're both in the right place," he amended, cuddling the child close until she fell asleep in his arms.

Working to renovate an apartment building that is hopefully the start of a real estate empire and financial security, he finds the lone tenant of his under-construction apartment building nearly delirious in the hallway. With a blizzard hitting the city, he has no choice but to take her and her daughter in to watch over them until Julie overcomes her illness. His disappointment at losing his crush and being alone have driven Ethan to be gruff and a bit aggressive with those around him. As he spends time caring for Julie and her child, these rough edges begin to soften and you get to meet the protective, loving man underneath the harsh exterior.
When Julie's past catches up with her, Ethan will have to put everything on the line to save her and the child. His skills and experience will be put to the test to save those who have become so dear to him.
The balance of the developing relationship between Ethan and Julie and the mystery surrounding her past will pull you in and not let go. A fast-paced, suspense-filled romance read.
I've been following Lucy Leroux's Singular Obsession series from the first book. Filled with alpha males and the strong women who love them, it was a treat to read this first book in a new spin-off series featuring a character from that series.
The Author, Lucy Leroux, neglected to sprinkle backstory throughout the book allowing me to make educated guesses and assumptions about the characters and world.
It is apparent that the Author is not a native of Boston because her writing reflects a mixed mash of slang and word usage that is inconsistent with American culture. 'clicking off' when hanging up the phone. 'hand truck'...this one I looked up, it's a dolly or cart. 'lift' is a European term for elevator I have never heard used in America. 'mates' Ethan is former military and currently in the FBI him using this term felt off. The most confusing was DOORYARD in how and where it was used. DON'T GET ME WRONG I LOVE TO BE INTRODUCED TO NEW WORDS.... so, wrested & disquiet WERE REFRESHING FINES IN THE MANUSCRIPT.
Overall, it was a bit messy.
Let's talk about ETHAN. Who doesn't like a hot man that wants to improve himself into a well rounded individual, financially, personally, and emotionally (even though he didn't realize it in the beginning). BUT Ethan felt 'unfinished'. His saving grace is he's sexy and a machine in bed.
Julie (Juliet or Julietta) Why does she need three names? I ABSOLUTELY LOVED that she'd the millionaire in this manuscript. SHOCKED that she was a virgin. CONFUSED on many aspects of her early life in Mexico. I questioned WHY as a dual citizen Juliet didn't immediately go to the American authorities.
Jason, Angel, Rivera, Van, and Ethans others friends were very interesting. But I kept coming back to WHAT ABOUT ETHANS FAMILY?
I am undecided if it's worth the effort or the money to read the Singular Obsession series OR the remaining two books in this spin off.

Once the mother is on the mend however she is hiding a secret but can she trust the fbi agent.
Good characters and dialogue with an easy to follow storyline, however I feel the author missed an opportunity with the fbi agent struggling to cope with the toddler.
Ethan and lunas dynamic was quite humorous and should have been expanded upon. Julie and Ethan seemed to just mold together and with a little more of a chase it would have strengthened the characters.
Overall an ok read but it just missed the emotional connection for me. It has a strong opening and I really wanted it to keep the momentum going with Luna and Ethan as it was very funny. Luna was entertaining but spent most of the book asleep. It's so nearly there but not quite for me.
