Olivia Rhys is a teacher who lives in Vermont, but she is returning home to Queens deal with her alcoholic, hot mess of a mother. She walks into a disaster zone, pretty much right at the same time that her mother’s neighbour and her childhood crush, Dean, literally crashes through the door to save the day.
Dean is the oldest brother of Olivia’s childhood best friend, Brooke, and the man she has had feelings for for as long as she can remember. They grew up next door to each other, but Dean is five years older than her and never showed her any interest. And he doesn’t seem to now – even though from that first glance Olivia’s attraction for him flares back to life.
Dean Fury is a detective. His father was on the force, as is his sister. It’s all he’s ever known and he has dedicated his life to his job. But his single-minded commitment has come at the cost of his personal life, for he knows the cost that is placed on the loved ones of police officers and he refuses to put somebody in that position.
An unexpected tragedy has recently rocked his world, and while he struggles to deal with his grief, anger and bewilderment, Olivia is next door trying to do the same. In the midst of all of that emotion, the two of them are there for each other and the chemistry begins to sizzle. But with Olivia only in town for a short while, and with Dean trying to come to terms with his loss and still determined to stop anybody from getting too close to him, these two have a lot of hurdles to overcome before they can get on the same page.
I enjoyed this book. The romance is a slow burn with some angst and UST as they torture and torment each other, taking two steps forward and then one step back as they both work through their issues. There are some twists and turns to the story, with smaller plotlines woven throughout bringing some surprises and providing some added depth to the book (and I loved the cameo from Shane Maxton and the boys). But this book did feel a bit rushed for me.
The book ends with Olivia and Dean is a good place, but the story is far from over. There are story threads left undone and questions that still need to be answered, and I’d love to see some real closure for them. But with Brooke’s book up next, and some not-so-subtle hints dropped for where her story is going to go, I know they will be a part of whatever is to come and I’m looking forward to reading more.
Even with a few missing pieces I loved the book and of course the feels! Definitely falls into the slow burn catagory but totally worth the wait and I can't wait for book 2!
Liv Rhys’s comes home after her mom kept butt dialing her, and she walks in on a disaster. Her childhood crush, Dean Fury, is going through an emotional time, blaming himself for something he shouldn’t. He’s so wrapped up in his own head that he barely gives Liv a second glance, which really hurts her feelings, and mine, too. Lol!
As the book progresses, so much is hitting these two: lies Liv’s mom told her, secrets kept hidden for 25 years, murders at Dean’s precinct, an unbelievable suicide, a woman covering up her domestic abuse… It just keeps on going and going. Like I said, my head was spinning.
There is definitely enough drama in this book to keep you reading. The ending is kind of a cliffhanger since so much happens that remains unsolved with no closure, but some of that comes out in the second book. In a way, this entire book is a precursor—a buildup—to the second book, which, to me, was much more enjoyable than this book was.
A lot of the drama in this book has no closure, even the parts that pertain to the two main characters. I was a bit disappointed and had a lot of questions in the end. I even had to read back and see if I missed something because a lot of the dialogue made no sense to me.
