I have to admit that I went into this book with a little trepidation because it has been a long time since I’ve read a contemporary romance novel. I grew up reading Harlequin (my dad actually paid for a book club subscription for them along with the Sweet Valley High and Baby Sitters Club series, but that’s another topic…) novels, so I’m pretty familiar with how lusty and dirty things can get. This book was surprisingly not the wham-bam, graphic, talk dirty in the sack story. It was actually more sensual and endearing.
If you’re looking for a romance novel without all the foul lovemaking scenes, this author appears to be safe!
The basics: Nikki’s brother Tony dies because he fails to follow protocol. His partner Kevin blames himself because he should have backed Tony up instead of enabling his drunk father. Nikki seeks comfort in Kevin and they end up in bed together. Kevin disappears.
Fast forward a few months and Nikki’s a waitress at a bar. Naturally, Kevin is jealous and Nikki doesn’t want anything to do with him because of his disappearance. However, after discovering her secret, he’s willing to show her that he’s back for good. Two surprises are in store for this couple and I’m not telling!
