Conclusion: You get what you pay for. This book is worth the price (of zero dollars currently) if you're looking for a good amount of sex scenes and barely a sprinkle of plot and character development. The premise is pretty standard (woman alone with hot stranger in a remote location) and it goes exactly the way you'd think. It's definitely not an amazing, award winning story, but it's a good trashy romance novel.

Sometimes the characters were funny, but it almost felt like the author tried too hard to make them off-the-wall. Lacy’s ‘poor me’ attitude started wearing thin after a while (I wanted to slap her and say ‘get over it’!). Chase’s character development was better, with his realizations about living his life in a haze since his wife’s death. Although I found myself irritated with Chase’s casual sex situation. I get that you need something to force the heroine’s hand (jealousy) but this seemed more than necessary.
I kept waiting for Chase to go out and nab the bad guy, or the bad guy to show up at Lacy’s place. But the only action was the sex kind, until the very end (that part I thought was pretty good). I like a little sex in books but about the time the mother showed up at the heroine’s house (49% on my Kindle) I was getting distracted. If you’re looking for a shoot-em-up action suspense story this isn’t it.
I loved this book. Murder, intrigue, and acceptance all make their way into this story, leading to plot twists and turns that keep you on your toes. Chase has pushed everyone away and barely been living since his wife died but when he realizes that his life in on the line, he sees that he does want to live. When Lace starts to have feelings for Chase, she is determined to not get too wrapped up in these feelings because she doesn't want to be like her mother and grandmother who have both been married and divorced many times.
This was a well written story with super characters. It has suspense, unique plot, funny secondary characters, great dialogue and hot love scenes. Even the title is great. It grabbed my attention right away and made me want to read this book.
This is the type of book where you'll want to clear some time and just sit and read it. You won't want to put it down. But be warned, it's like riding a roller coaster of not only emotions but plot.
