The writing style was a bit simplistic, but the story was lovely.

The hero and heroine had a past, an almost Romeo & Juliet -esque past, so the second chance love story unfolding was sweet and romantic.

The heroine was definitely a victim, but not the sort you wanna slap and say 'grow up!' to. You can't help feeling sorry for the poor woman. And the hero is just a dream, flying cross country just cause she asked him to.

I had a feeling it might have been who it turned out to be, but let me tell

I really liked this book. There was a mix of who-done-it and sweet romance. There are lots of twists and turns and many half-truths and meddling family that have gotten in the way of Sam & Johnny.

This is an earlier book by Sharon Sala. It's an ok romantic story, however it lacks the depth that she has developed over the years. Some parts were a little cheesey, but if you're a Sala fan you'll like it. This one involves a stalker, a childhood friend/lover, and finding a HEA.
Girl on the run, needs protection and finds a new home and love at the same time. Good read, kept you intersted all the way through.
Read this one awhile ago, its slow in the beginning but it gets better and better the more you read it!
dont know why i bothered finishing it, stilted dialog all the way through the end
