Now, with a vengeful killer barely a step behind, Neely's life was in Reese's hands.

Neely was the last person Reese

4 stars!!

I had a hard time rating this book because of the hero's actions which led to major angst.I felt that I should be indignant because of what he did but honestly, I kinda gave it a pass since it was consistent with his character.

Reese Barnett is a stubborn, mule-headed, set-in-his-ways, small town sheriff. Nine years ago, he did something unforgivable walking out on the woman he professed to love just when she needed him the most. I know that sounds like your standard hero walk-out, but

The hero of this story was a deputy, the heroine was a criminal defense attorney and they were together. One day the heroine decided to defend a guy who abused his wife because all the little deputy people went to pick him up, didn't read him his miranda rights, and then decided to give him a little payback by kicking the crap out of him while in custody.

So the heroine gets the guy off, and as they are leaving the courthouse, he MAGICALLY pulls out a gun and shoots his wife, killing her. And the
3.5 stars rounded up.

It's rare that a series romance causes me to think. I freely admit they're mind candy. Something you can start reading after dinner to wind down from a stressful day and finish by bedtime. Often, I honestly have to read my own review to remember if I've read one or not. There are a few that stand out to me, but often the stories and titles jumble together.

I don't think I'm spoiling anything by discussing the main conflict as it's revealed pretty much right off the bat.

The hero of this book was just....just....just....oh, I have no words!
If he were a real life person I would beat him up on the spot.Him and his mussings ruined the book for me. :(
i had heard about this book on one of my amazon fora, and decided to read it, to see if the hero had betrayed the heroine as badly as other readers seemed to think. to make a long story short--yes, he did, but he eventually redeemed himself, though he did not grovel nearly long enough.

Couldn't get past the hero's actions towards the heroine.

Arsehole hero.
Stupid heroine.

Had no idea why she even loved him after everything he had done. Never felt he was sorry. Yes there was some guilt but there was nothing in his actions that made me think he was trying to make it up to her.

This book has a reputation, which was actually why I got it - rubbernecking, reader style. :D

Basic plot - H keeps h hidden and thus safe, from ex con who has issues with the fact she put him away for 5 years.

Obstacle - H/h were item 9 years previously when a disagreement about what constitutes justice had him leaving her bleeding on the courthouse steps. As betrayals go, that's a doozy, and while I can understand the concept of forgiveness, trust is something else, and the feeling that
I liked this one. I've read many reviews and discussions on this one and was prepared to hate it. Did I mention that 1-2 star reviews often intrigue me - sometimes I have to read to see for myself.

H had been a famous baseball player - adored by fans and women. After he was injured and couldn't play anymore, he worked in corrupt sheriff's office as rookie cop. h is public defender with a troubled past (why she became a lawyer and specifically a public defender). H/h met and fell in love.
