After the first book in the series where Nick and Emma's find their HEA, the story returns to bring Landon and Daphne together. The superb writing captures perfectly the sufferings of a little boy, Landon, at the neglect by his drugged out mother, and how, after being adopted along with two other boys, Nick and Fender, through a foundation of love and nurturing by their adopted mother Louisa, Landon finds his own happiness and love in Detective Daphne Rossi.
Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone because the backstory is layered throughout the book in such a way to bring in Nick and Emma's story, without detractions, or creating any confusion. There is the perfect amount of humor, romance, tension and a robbery mystery to whet the appetite of just about any reader. You'll find yourself immersed in Daphne's solving of the robbery, as well becoming evolved with the attraction between she and Landon.
Hopefully the next book will bring Fender and Harlow together, and we'll find out if Daphne is promoted into the Terrorist Taskforce. The one thing I wish this story could have tied up before its ending.
This book was provided by the Publisher and Netgalley, I am voluntarily providing my honest review.
Landon McGee was a computer whiz who owned his own company. His company had been broken into but the only thing stolen was two computer servers. He was very handsome and there was an instant attraction between Landon and Daphne. But, she was a cop and needed to do her job.
As their relationship began and the investigation progressed, more and more of Landon's past came to light. He had had a horrible childhood until he was adopted at ten years old. Would he ever be able to put his awful past behind him so he could move forward and have a wonderful, loving relationship with Daphne? Would secrets between them destroy what they were beginning to recognize as love?
I really liked this story but I grew tired of the f-bombs that were frequent in the book. The descriptive sex wasn't something I particularly enjoyed either.
I was given an arc copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
after a break-in that targets only
landon doesn't really want daphne to go poking around in his past. he's pretty sure the break-in can be laid at gloria's door, and the last thing he wants is to reconnect with the woman who neglected him for years and then abandoned him.
like the first book in the series, park heights, the brooklyn neighborhood these characters live in serves as a whole other character, and everyone has an opinion about the relationship and what the two characters need to do to make sure it lasts. and as much as i liked the two leads, part of me didn't love the way that daphne pushed herself into landon's relationship with his biological mother and how much pressure was put on him to deal with all those feelings. and listen, maybe those were issues and feelings he needed to deal with, it just felt like no one was respecting his timetable, and that didn't feel right. given his upbringing, he had a lot of deep personal trauma, it just felt like the way daphne pushed him, and then the way her mother pushed him was wrong, even if it all turned out all right.
though this is a standalone, and you don't need to have read the first book in the series to understand what is happening, having read the first book, at last, does give you a greater understanding of the relationships in just once.
