An absorbing, heartfelt story of trust in love. It's sexy and sentimental, but not syrupy.Recently-divorced Lacey doesn't want a man in the shape of a lawyer, doctor, or stock broker. Been there, done that, didn't work out. This is why she ends up at a bar on the prowl for a hook-up for the first time in her life. And this is how she finds herself spread against the side of car beneath Officer Hunter Anderson an hour after she meets him. Wowza!Lacey continues to claim she doesn't want a perfect man, but as long as Hunter's zipper comes down, I'm certain he could play a lawyer and Lacey wouldn't care. He's different, dominant, and sings to her desires. That's all that matters.Normally, I lose interest in love stories that lack external conflict. There's no bad guys, no jealous ex-lovers, and no adulterous drama in this one. What you get is outstanding character development, the H/h compelling in his/her own way. Lacey has so much fight, your empowered-woman's roar will swell in your chest. You'll also fall victim to their inward struggles which bear an edge to the plot without depending on angsty relationship melodrama.Ms. Calhoun knows her craft, and by gawd, can she write sizzling sex scenes. Hunter might be hot and dangerous with a badge and a gun, but he's even sexier without them.
