Review copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.
“I’m scared, too. And there are times I question what I deserve, but we’re in this together. So fall with me.”
Roxy is one cool chick who made for an awesome main character + she rocks her glasses and awesome shirts. I loved her relationship with Reece - they had chemistry, a past and they were actually good friends once. And Reece was just smoking hot. Who doesn't love a man in uniform? And he's also good and dedicated to his job.
This book is not only steamy romance, witty conversations and Roxy and Reece trying to work things out between them. There was also a lot of suspense. I liked this but I felt like Roxy should've told people sooner what was going on at her apartment. Those things were just creepy as hell.
Another thing I adored were the references to Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Doctor Who, etc... This is just a personal quirk of mine but I love all those shows so it made this book even better. Gotta love JLA for that!
Another thing, I always love it when the characters from the other books make an appearance. It's always fun to know what's going on with them. I really enjoyed that and it made me smile.
Overall, this was just a great book. I love this series, these characters and JLA always keeps me hooked. Bring on the next book!
