Thanks to a stroke of bad luck, Eden Anderson’s childhood tormentor, Jansen McKnight, is now her temporary roommate. He’s also a badass, gun-toting cop who relishes a steak dinner. As a peace-loving vegetarian, there’s nothing Eden hates more than guns—and meat. And there’s nothing she’d love more than to deflate Jansen’s overblown ego. So when Jansen bets Eden that he can seduce her within two weeks, she can’t wait for him to lose. But as Eden learns more about the man beyond the badge, their teasing turns tantalizing. Soon, Eden starts to believe that opposites may indeed attract, and she can’t stop thinking about the man in blue…
This is my first read by this author and is a stand alone novel. The chemistry between the two main characters made the book enjoyable and sexy. I loved Jansen and his personality in the book. He is strong willed and not afraid of a challenge. Eden, at times, could be annoying and naive. Even though she had her moments of flaws, I did enjoy reading about the two characters.
When I finished the book, my overall feeling for it was just okay. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. It kind of fell in the middle for me in ratings. I thought the love scenes were sexy, but not over the top. The characters balanced each other out nicely and the ending was a little too neatly wrapped up. There was parts of the book were the narrative dialogue goes a little overboard.
Overall just an okay book for me. If you are looking for a fun and sexy read to pass the time, then this book would do in a pinch. I wouldn’t say it is a must have read, but one to pick up and read when you have a little extra time.
Okay book, but it left me wanting more! 3 STARS
