He tries to stay away from her but someone wants her dead. Each time he stays away she gets sexier and more attractive. Cole wants her safe and in his arms every time yet Jamie sways him all the time. Can he convince Jamie that they belong together and his love for her is for real?
 
Okay I have to admit the cover pulled me and the first chapter got me hooked. Lara Stephens has a hit with this book for it’s full of passion, comedy and oh and so many unforgettable characters. I loved Cole Gammon and his take-charge attitude towards the whole ordeal Jamie is going through. Now Jamie is so fun to read about even though she just got dumped in a most embarrassing way she insists she doesn’t want love anymore. Yet it was fun to read how she comes to terms with Cole. Those two are great and Oma, the grandmother a hoot to read. Loved it and definitely highly recommended.
