This is my first book by this author an even though the story was a bit predictable at times the chemistry between Emerald and Derek was undeniable. Derek is a true Alpha male that you wish the female character Emerald would just slap him in the face at times, but as it goes along you start to have a bit of a soft spot for me and his past. I enjoyed the story in this book that I receive a copy of as part of the Quirky Blind Date readers group and this is my voluntary and honest review. The flow of the story was good, had you interested to see what would happen next and was full of interesting plots and characters. I did feel the end was a bit rushed and would have liked a longer ending and further information.
