Lou has joined the dive rescue team. Callum her boss. We learned that Lou left her life in Connecticut behind. Cal is an ex-Marine and loved that discipline. Lou knows there is a smile somewhere waiting to break loose.
During a training exercise Lou kicks a dead body. Then finds that someone is peeking into her windows, then sets he and her house on fire. During all this she gets Cal to smile. After the house fire she moves her one possession, herself into Cal’s house.
(For those who don’t want sex on page 2 this is the book for you, Cal and Lou take this relationship very slowly).
Then someone tries to kill both Cal and Lou during a rescue.
There is some great humor off of Lou in this book. I enjoyed this read.
Callum and Lou's relationship was a sweet slow burn. Even though I really loved Callum, Lou really made this book for me. Her personality was really fun to read. I liked Rob, Chris, and Ian and can't wait to get to know them more. I missed my George in this book. But I guess he can't be the star of all the books. Hold Your Breath was a great read, but it ends in a cliffy. Not a painful omg how will I live cliffy but I am glad that the other book is already out so I don't have to wait to see what is up with Ian!

I really loved the characters in this book. Especially Lou. That's really what sold it for me. I laughed out loud many times while reading this. I loved that she was unapologetically herself the entire book. I was kind of inspired by her confidence.
Any who, I really enjoyed this book! It's probably not for everyone, but if you like a character driven- witty banter-independent heroine romance...I'd say give it a go. It's definitely worth the $4.
The synopsis has a warning about mature themes, but there was nothing overly shocking for an adult contemporary romance here. The romance was slow building and moments took place in the midsts of the suspense thread. I love that despite the seriousness of the situation Ruggle allowed for humor in part due to Lou’s vibrant, snarky personality and the fact that Callum is her polar opposite. It was funny and felt genuine. Despite knowing who, we had some hold your breath moments as we moved towards the climatic end. I was delighted we were given a complete story. The romantic thread wrapped up nicely as well and left me removing my earbuds with a smile.
The characters are not very well fleshed out. So much more could have been done to make Lou and Callum feel like people. Instead, they act more like hormone-infused teenagers. Their romance is not developed at all. When the book opens, Callum seems annoyed with Lou. Next thing we know, he's forced himself into her life (she doesn't object) and they are in love.
The stalker plot line was OK, but it was obvious from the start who the stalker was. How that plot line resolves, however, was a nice twist.
The dead body plot is not resolved, and seems to be something that will continue through the entire series.
All that said, I may pick up the next book, if for no other reason than to find out what happens with the body. Maybe I'll track it down at the library, though.
