I really fought really hard to love
this story, but I had a hard time connecting with the characters.
It was about 50% before it really started to pick up.
It felt like the characters were trying to hard. What I mean by that is instead of being able to feel their pain, love, or angst, it was explained or described.
Their bedroom scenes lacked umph and sex appeal, there was just not enough description in this area.
The back story was interesting and the suspense was very entertaining.
This was my first read by Fifi Flowers and th blurb had me feeling like I just had to read it so I took a chance.
Veronica (Vixen) was starting over in a new place with her son and restaurant/bar which ironically very popular in town.
She was on the run from
her crazy ex-husband.
She hired a bodyguard enter Sutton who was totally sexy.
Who I might add had fallen in love with her no mystery there.
He wanted to become a permanent fixture in her life and predictably he did. The bond that Sutton had with Vixen's son Dawson was great.
The other characters play an integral part in the drama and suspense
piece of a story.
I found that to be the most memorable section. I really struggled with this book and I wanted to like it, but it just didn't hold my attention.
It may have been a different outcome had I read the entire series, but I thought it could be read as a stand-alone. Unfortunately this wasn't the story for me, but you may love it.
