Very good contemporary romance :D
Hot and Suspenseful
Suspenseful, Hot, Passionate
One of the most memorable moments for me was when Belle showed Grant her scar. Grant had severe scarring from a drug bust that went bad, and he was afraid no one would want to be with him because of the way he looked. Belle wanted him to see that his scars didn't matter to her. That she has one of her own.
I liked several different scenes in this book, but my favorite is when Grant saves Belle from the serial killer. I was praying that he wouldn't actually hurt Belle, but was afraid he was going to before Grant got there. The author put just enough of a twist on it that even though you knew Grant was going to save her, you didn't know what would happen to her before he got there.
New neighbors, new love, old enemies.
I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I love the way Pyper Down changes her voice with each character and Katie Reus has a great writing gift.
