Never leave a review, but this story totally deserves one. Absolutely loved this book! Sure a little far fetched, but well done! You made me believe for a couple of hours, well written, flowed from one point to another perfectly. The characters were all in gauging and funny. I’m with others who’ve written reviews, I hope you continue with this as a series, and check in on Betty, Thom, and Hebert on occasion.
I do recommend this book, great read, by a fantastic author!
This book had a lot of potential.
Sad I waisted my money on it.
Wow! Just, Wow!
Thom and Betty—their names are quite common but their story is just the opposite. They were engaged but Betty was, literally, on the threshold of leaving him when the house explodes. Thus begins this edge of your seat, fast paced romance, as Betty discovers her ex-fiancé is not what he claims to be and Thom has to fight not only to keep her safe, but to win back her love.
