Single Dads can be just as hot as bad boys when they want to be!
I enjoyed this sizzling book about a girl settling down in a small southern town after being on the run. Kim finds a home in the small cabin she rents behind the plantation house that Erik, a former Homicide detective from Chicago is restoring for himself and his two year old daughter Annie. The story has mystery, danger, romance, and a heck of a lot of steam between the two main characters.
The storyline was unexpected in that Kim was not running from a normal situation such as an abusive family or an obsessive ex. She grew up in a cult in California and got away by taking off with some money, which she technically earned but women weren’t allowed to access. So you could say she stole it. Though cults don’t care as much about things as they do about their people leaving the fold. So eventually some people from the cult track her down.
Kim is forced to stay in the main house with Erik for her own safety and that is when the attraction between them heats up. I was afraid for a few minutes there that Erik might be one of those guys that just couldn’t get over the loss of his wife, so he wouldn’t be able to give in to his attraction and this would end up being one of those tortured love stories.
I was so happy to be wrong and after only a slight blip to get over being attracted to someone else for the first time since his wife died, he jumped in and became involved with Kim and the heat index went straight to 5 flames out of 5 after that 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥. If you like a hot single Dad who knows what to do in the bedroom, and in the living room, and in the shower, and even in the woods, you will enjoy this book! He also remodels the entire house and his daughter is as cute as can be.
