While this is the first book I've read by this author, it will not be the last. I've added her to my must read authors' list. This one is a must read for romantic suspense fans.
Mary Alice has a rule she follows. No cops! Her favorite uncle, her fiancée, and finally her father were all cops. They were killed. Because of this, she wants nothing do with cops. This is understandable and completely honest on her part. After losing that many loved ones, I probably wouldn’t want nothing to do with cops again either.
Bridge is undercover. He needs Mary Alice to offer up her home to him so he can spy on her neighbor. Unfortunately he gets close to Mary Alice while pretending to be someone he’s not. When she does find out he’s a cop, the situation isn’t pretty and they both have to find a way to work together. What they don’t count on is falling in love with each other. But falling in love is only half the battle. Bridge has a promise to keep and Mary Alice is scared to death of losing another person she loves.
“Death could find you anytime, anywhere.”
The emotions felt real and the characters were interesting. A solid 4 stars.
Mary Alice has had it with loving cops. She lost her uncle early in life; then three years ago, she’d lost her fiance Jack and then, a few weeks later, her dad. It’s too hard to live a man who might not come home. Luckily, she’s got her handy dandy life plan to follow for happiness and believe me, not being a cop is high on her list of qualifications for her life partner. But a road construction worker? That’s who she’s been ogling the last few days? Really?
Has it come to this?
Russell Bridger knows better than to mix business with pleasure–especially in undercover surveillance. But when his boss tells him he’s got to get into Mary Alice’s house so he can watch her neighbor Charlie, he’s got no choice. He can’t give away his real identity, so he’s got to flirt and pretend to want a relationship as Bridge the construction worker. Unfortunately pretending comes easily since he’s actually very attracted to her–too much, really. What’s he going to do when things heat up? When she finds out the truth, she’s going to kill him.
And he knows he’s not good enough for her, especially since his mother had made him promise that as long as he was a cop, he wouldn’t get involved with a woman and break her heart if he got killed. His mother’s stress over his dad’s job had caused her stroke–he just knew it.
In Ms Bruhns’s hands, this “learn to let go” romance runs the gamut of emotions, taking the reader on a rollercoaster ride of sad then mad then glad with a couple of stops in between for some lusciously hot sex and some suspenseful scenes that fooled even me! Great new romance I really enjoyed reading–thanks!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
This is Russell Bridger (Bridge) and Mary Alice Flannery's story.
Bridge is working uncover as a road crew guy. He is suppose to get close to Mary Alice so he can move in her house and do surveillance on her neighbor. Bridge is very attracted to Mary Alice. He has mixed emotions about acting on it since he is working undercover and she is a relationship type girl not a one night stand.
Mary Alice really has a crush on the road crew guy (Bridge). She finds out that he is a cop and that he has lied to her. Since Mary Alice's fiancé and father were both cops and were killed in the line of duty she cannot fall for a cop.
Since Bridge and Mary Alice have been thrown together because of Bridge's job will they be able to ignore the intense chemistry between them? I really liked the combination of hot and tough guy to conservative pre-school teacher. They provide a balance for each other.
You get romance, passion, humor, and suspense. It is a great read for when you just need an escape. I look forward to reading other books by Nina Bruhns.
