I loved this book. I found it very engaging and very different from what is out today. It was funny, engaging and made you think in ways that a lot of romance novels do not. It could be that the author has written a dissertation in psychology which shows throughout the book in that she manages to really get into the psyche of the characters. The heroine has also written hers but has since lots her license to practice.

Sophie and Grant are both cons that mean when they have to report to the same parole officer. Little do they know that their meeting and falling for each other will change their lives forever. They both regret what sent them to prison but if it wasn’t for going to prison they would have never met each other. The storyline has a lot of twists and turns that kept me reading and excited to find out what was happening next. Grant was an adorable hero that I was overflowing with integrity and optimism. Sophie was the heroine that you route for because you can tell she didn’t have the easiest life with an over-bearing father and a narcissistic mother. The secondary characters closest to the main characters were eccentric and had depth.

I cannot wait to read the second book in this series so that I can revisit all the characters and to see where they are now. Jennifer Lane is definitely an author to have your eye out for. This novel read like you were not even reading but rather like you were part of the story or your best friend was telling you a story. Lane has a way of explaining why each character became what they are today and breaks down their family dynamic in a way that isn’t boring or hard to understand.
