Stacia Says…

This book is about Sadie, a broken and abused woman, who has finally started putting the pieces of her life back together. She randomly meets Parker (or Officer Sexy as I like to call him) when he pulls her over for speeding and then again, when she finds out he is the brother of her new neighbor. Parker is your typical playboy, until he meets Sadie and decides that he wants more for once in his life. He is sweet, tender, patient, and treats her the way she deserves to be treated. Not only that, he understands what she has gone through as a victim of domestic violence, because he has seen so many horrific things with his job.
“I can’t imagine something happening to you and me not being there to protect you from it. I want to be the one to keep you safe.”
I did feel that the pace of Sadie and Parker’s relationship was a little fast; I hate to use the term “insta-love” but, I did feel that it was at times rushed. However, this book still held my interest with a mix of suspenseful anticipation and second chance love.
“What if you are my happily ever after? I’ll take the chance of you thinking I’m some clingy loser by telling you this; there is no doubt in my mind that I’m falling in love with you.”
Sadie’s abusive and psychotic ex-husband Brent is always in the background, with the reading just waiting for that other “shoe” to drop. I felt that while there was a semi-suspenseful buildup throughout the book, there could have been more to make it seem more believable. Also, I felt after this book-long buildup, the ending was a little anti-climatic and a bit rushed.

Excerpt:

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.
