Confession time...I rarely just walk into a bookstore and buy books anymore without knowing the author or based upon a recommendation from someone else. This book was the exception to that. It caught my eye on the bookshelf and I bought it without knowing anything more than what it said on the back cover. It was a risk definitely worth taking because I've just discovered a new author and series to go on my must-buy list.
Harper is not a one-night stand kind of girl, but when super-sexy Galen saves her from being drugged she makes an exception to that rule and takes him back to her place. Neither one expects anything more so agree to be completely honest with one another, but with one rule...no names. This is for one night...which Galen is re-thinking until Harper receives a text from a man who sounds like her boyfriend...so he leaves abruptly without another word. But neither one of them expects the sex to be so incredibly good that it haunts them both with what could have been...until they meet again when Galen is put in charge of Harper's security when she witnesses a murder and is being targeted.
I'm a sucker for a good romantic suspense featuring a hot, alpha protector and Galen is a great example of why I love this style of book. Although he feels betrayed by what happened a year ago, he knows that if he confesses his night with Harper that he won't be able to protect her...something he can't accept and that made me fall in love with him. In his defense, when the whole situation occurs, he's completely jet-lagged since he just returned from a year-long assignment in France. But he's committed to not letting Harper know that he absolutely remembers that night.
Harper has no idea why Galen took off like he did. She thought the entire night was incredible and is incredibly hurt that he doesn't even remember her. Did she misread things so poorly? I felt for her. She's been thrown into this horrible situation and dealing with her conflicted feelings about Galen certainly doesn't help her any. The book worked for me just because Galen and Harper are thrown into very close quarters under very stressful circumstances. It requires them to spend time with one another and get to know each other without the sexual complication (at least at first...hehe). Their text exchanges at night were one of my favorite things and I liked how they really seemed to develop a good friendship despite that first night of sex.
I loved this book and can't wait to read book #2 because I loved the scenes with Landon in them. I think this is going to be a great series and am so happy that I purchased this spur-of-the-moment book. It was a good risk that definitely paid off to be a great read!!
I enjoyed the back and forth between Galen and Harper and how they still had a connection even though they didn't trust each other and it took a long time to work out the misunderstanding that sent Galen running in the first place. The dialogue was witty and entertaining and the action kept me turning the page. The bad guy wasn't obvious although I did figure it out I wasn't positive I was right. I did think that Harper let Galen "off the hook" a little too easy considering he was pretending not to remember her and he was the one who jumped to a conclusion without even giving Harper a chance.
I enjoyed reading about the Marshals and look forward to the next book in the series.
I also didn't like the style of writing. The ending seemed a bit rushed and thrown together. It also made no sense that she would withhold pertinent information that could exonerate her just to break a story--when it seemed like she was a crappy reporter to begin with.
The book was 100% NOT worth the price. I feel like a definitely overpaid for a mediocre story line with a predictable plot. I've read better books around the $.99-2.99 range. At $5.84, I definitely feel cheated and ripped off. This will be my last purchase from this author unless the price comes down. The skill level is definitely not matched for the price I paid. I would recommend this book if you have extra money to spend and aren't at all particular about what you read.
