Once upon a time, Natalie Cooper had it all – as a high school cheerleader she could shake her pom-poms with the best of them. But several years down the line, she’s paying the price of popularity when her husband runs off with a twenty-year-old bimbo.
Now Natalie just wants to focus on running her photo shop (and some of the pictures she sees…well, she really shouldn’t!) and just trying to be a good mum.
Then she comes toe-to-manly chest with Blake Junger. ‘Exiled’ to a remote cabin in Truly, Idaho, Blake wants nothing to do with anyone. Instead, he’s determined to struggle with his demons and win…all on his own. But he doesn’t count on a pint-sized five-year-old visitor – or Natalie Cooper, the kid’s lusciously curved mother – to break down his barriers…
Although this is the 3rd book in the Truly series this is the first one that I have read which Is fine as I didn’t feel that I had missed anything from previous books, it can be read as a stand alone.
I liked this book it was a good little read, it did seem to be more hot sex than a romance but the relationship between Blake and Natalie was ok.
What was awesome was the relationship Blake had with Natalie’s daughter Charlotte, they were such cute friends.
What I did love about this book was the great scenes describing Blake doing his job, the missions he went on really carried this book for me.
I didn’t like Michael and his mother at all, I think there characters were there to try and give the heroine a bit of conflict but it didn’t really get pulled off. The situations seemed to just fizzle out and Michael took a step back and all was ok.
Over all a not too bad of a read to pass a couple of hours but nothing to keep you up reading long into the night.
