Cover Impressions: Clean and simple. I like it.
Synopsis: After a tragic shooting left him wounded and in disgrace, all that remained of former deputy sheriff Jude Anderson’s life was a shattered femur, the standard disability package, and a host of issues. Jude seeks sanctuary in a remote upstate cabin and tries to get his life back on track.
Life has other plans when Jude finds a dead man draped across his front doorstep. The victim is the first hookup Jude’s had in, well, ever. Once Jude processes that shock he gets another when he learns that the homicide detective sent to investigate the murder is Rowan Muir, Jude’s ex. Their split was ugly, and Rowan isn’t the forgiving type.
Now Jude is drawn back into a world he left behind: murder investigations and fighting the undeniable attraction he has for Rowan. Rowan is still holding onto a substantial grudge. But both men need to figure out how to cope with being thrown together again, because it’s becoming increasingly clear that Jude is being targeted by a murderer – one who may have come from Jude’s past for revenge.
Warnings: if you don't like man-on-man sexytimes, this isn't the book for you. Everyone else: hot law enforcement officers, angst and hot make-up sex is on deck.
Impressions: This book really grabbed me, and I was glad to have the day off so I could devote the time to finish it! Jude melted my heart, and I was so eager to watch him get the love and acceptance that he deserved.
The romance between these men was paced just right. I liked Rowan, and I loved picking up on the feelings he hid beneath is cool exterior. Ford did a great job of showing who he was without just info dumping. The build between them was sweet, sexy and burned up the pages.
I liked the mystery, though I definitely read it for the romance. I am very eager to read the next in the series, and I was excited to see that there would be a follow up.
If you need a great read with a slow, perfect romance to burn up the pages of your kindle, grab this one now!
