Love At First Sight
Kyle McBride and his partner are detectives with Hope City PD. They are currently working to get drugs off the streets—specifically prescription drugs that can be combined with other drugs to make them more powerful and more deadly. Kyle comes from a big family and extended family whom mostly work as EMTs, DEA, firefighters, detectives. After work, they often find themselves at the local bar. Kyle’s days of one night stands are over. Kyle is interested in something long-term. When he inadvertently bumps into Kimberly at the bar, he’s willing to make an exception. But the one night stand leads him to wanting more. Without his mysterious woman’s last name or phone number, he’s at a loss. Until he sees her again...
Kimberly works in advertising at Kilton Pharmaceuticals. She’s bored and wants to pursue a career in journalism. When an opportunity arises for her to work on human interest stories, she’s thrilled! But her interviews start to cross the line and catch the attention of some not so honest people.
Kyle and Kimberly are genuine, hardworking people. They laugh and love hard. While they don’t always agree and Kyle screws up in a BIG way, they are forgiving and compassionate. I loved that Kimberly was raised in an orphanage, but she wasn’t bitter. I enjoyed her interactions with her family at the convent, Kyle’s family, and the homeless women and children. Kyle’s protective, but supportive. I was surprised by the twist in the end...I was totally wrong! I can’t wait to see what happens next in Hope City. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Great story of unexpected love and family. Kyle and Kimberly met one night, then she slipped away. They meet again in a most unusual way. Lots of action and drama. A bit of an insta-love feel. Kimberly did not have a family growing up, and fits and and falls in love with Kyles. Great getting to know all of the friends and family connections in this series.
