Indy Savage, cop’s daughter, rock chick and used bookstore owner, has been in love with Lee Nightingale, once bad boy, now the man behind Nightingale Investigations, since she was five years old. No matter what ingenious schemes Indy used to capture his attention, Lee never showed an interest and Indy finally gave up. Now Indy’s employee, Rosie, has lost a bag of diamonds and bad guys are shooting at him. When Indy gets involved, Lee is forced to help. Complicting matters, Lee has decided he’s interested, Indy’s decided she’s not. But she can’t seem to keep Lee out of her life when she’s repeatedly stun gunned, kidnapped and there are car bombs exploding (not to mention she’s finding dead bodies).
Hilarious! This book had be giggling out loud over and over! Lee was HOTTT (yes, with three T’s!) and Indy was so funny! I loved the characters!
“Your grandmother used to say that you were two souls separated in heaven. She mainly meant you were both trouble and deserved each other.”
The plot was good for the most part but I did feel like the end dragged out a little and once all the baddies were caught or dead the whole thing kind of chugged along.
The only problem with this book for me was that there was too much drama and action and not enough romance or steaminess. I liked the relationship between Indy and Lee, their history, his feelings for her, etc. but I really wanted to read more about it and most of the book was so taken up with kidnapping, dead bodies, brawls and such that there wasn’t a whole lot of space for knee-wobbling romance. Too much bad guy chasing, not enough bedroom action and I’m not a fan of ‘face-to-black’!
When the romance did occur it was super cute and Liam Nightingale was to die for! Strong, fearless, the total bad boy fantasy. I loved how sure he was about Indy. It’s rare that a book character has absolutely no doubts about a relationship, so I loved that.
“I don’t get a taste of you soon, I’m givin’ up the search and takin’ you to my cabin in Grand Lake. No phones, no cell coverage, no buzzer. Anyone knocks on the door and I’m shooting them.”
Indy was the funniest character! She was so headstrong and gutsy. She was utterly incapable of following instructions and doing as she was told, but she knew it and just didn’t give a damn. Indy did her thing, her way! Another refreshing change!
“Maybe we should have this conversation in an alternate universe where Alternate Indy gives a shit what Alternate Lee wants her to wear.”
So if you like a bit of bloodshed, gun action, taser action, bar brawls, a fight including chinese food, kidnapping, car bombs… etc etc. with your romance, dive in!
