Sadie is thriving in her new life and taking every moment to enjoy her new freedom. After a failed marriage that changed everything she knew to be true, she gets the courage to start over on her own. Sadie’s world quickly changes from her new normal when one night she gets pulled over by the most gorgeous police officer she’s ever met.
Feeling optimistic about opening up again, she hopes that begins with Officer Stevens. He’s protective, sweet and seemingly trustworthy. She wonders if her past will ever allow her to get close to someone again. Her friends keep telling her how much she finally deserves to be happy. Will their chance meeting give her an opportunity to find out how fulfilling true love really should be? She wants to put her past to rest and move on, but will she finally allow herself to trust him when she feels like her life might be in danger?
Sadie had a hard life, an abusive ex, & now has a bright new future to look forward to. On her way home from work she gets pulled over by a hot cop. Fast forward…she lives next door to his brother. Woohoo! They date. They sex. Bad things happen. They live happily ever after.
Two of my most favoritest quotes:
“I need you to treat me like I’m not shattered, even when it seems like I’m just pieces laying all over the floor.”
I seriously could watch him be shirtless all day long. It was like looking at sex. If sex were a person. A very hot person.
I wanted to love this book (it has a hot cop!!!), but I didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t hate it. It’s just not one that would go on my favorites list. It was cute & light, considering the history of the main character. Sadie was strong. Parker was perfect. The friends were spunky & great. The words were pretty.
I think maybe that was my problem. Everything was too perfect. Could just be me. Maybe I’ve been reading too many books about tortured souls? Just because it’s not one of my favorites doesn’t mean that it can’t be one of yours. Read it, & tell me whether or not you agree. I’d genuinely enjoy hearing someone else’s take on it.
I slipped my tank top over my head and pulled it down as I caught a glimpse of the scar that stretched across the left side of my lower stomach. It triggered a memory of who I thought I would be forever; a useless piece of someone’s property.
