Publisher Description

Baby. Don’t let the name fool you.

Being Linear Tactical's easiest-going younger brother has never been a problem for Baby Bollinger. He likes people. He likes laughing. He likes life. 

But he has secrets buried deep under his charming smile that could change everything. 

Quinn Harrison-Pritchard doesn’t have secrets. What she does have is a big mess of a life that's painfully public. 

Jobless. Blacklisted. Broke. Alone. Exactly where nobody wants to be as they hit their 39th birthday. 

Oak Creek is supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to lick her wounds and figure out a plan. One that doesn’t include Baby Bollinger. But the vigorous, mouth-watering mechanic—anything but a baby—is pursuing her with a single-minded focus. 

And doesn’t seem to care that she’s twelve years his senior. 

But danger has followed Quinn to Oak Creek—someone from her past who is convinced she’s wronged him. And that she needs to pay with her life. 

Baby is the only one in a position to save her. But he’ll have to face the secrets he’s let define him for way too long. And resurrect the warrior buried inside.

Fresh and unexpected!

4.5 Stars
This is book 9 in the series and it features Blake “Baby” Bollinger and Quinn Harrison Pritchard. The surprises just keep coming in this fabulous book! The romance is classic, beautiful, younger man/older woman, which suits Baby to a tee. The mystery and suspense is top notch, which is exactly what we’ve grown accustomed to with this author.

The nickname of “Baby” kept throwing me off and throughout this entire book I was never comfortable calling him “Baby.” Still, the story line is brilliant and the characters are amazing. This author’s stories are always fresh and unexpected.

An Amazing Love Story

As always, Janie Crouch gets your heart pumping and your adrenaline spiking in the new Linear Tactical book. At first glance, Baby and Quinn don't seem to make good match. Their differences too vast to be able to make any kind of romantic relationship work. Well, they are an exciting couple that is able to let go and be free with one another. I love them together and they compliment each other in such an adorable and magical way.

The drama, as crazy as it is, seems to have followed Quinn from Cambridge. The troubles just keep coming and she can't hide from her past especially, with the part-time sheriff, Gavin having some doubt of her innocence is extreme bad luck. It is making Quinn miserable and her life extra difficult. It is also making her question everything she has every thought about herself. Her bright spot is Baby and his "feelings for her are the reason for the clarity" to see the truth beyond the obvious...if it's not too late.

I really appreciate how Ms. Crouch weaves in some extra real life concerns in her books. In Baby and Quinn's story, Quinn is twelve years older than Baby. With her age being 39, questions of fertility, pregnancy complications and adoption are addressed with care, concern and respect.
