He should’ve never left his house. He should’ve stayed at home. He has a legitimate excuse—he’s running a fever and he’s fairly sure he’s developing pneumonia. He should have called in sick…but he doesn’t.
He goes to work, because his team is relying on him.
First, he has to sign about eight thousand calendars—all from women who purchased said calendars to benefit the Fallen Officer fundraiser. And when he’s done with that, he has to endure a television interview along with the rest of the SWAT team seeing as they made national news with their ‘Hot SWAT’ calendar that’s sold a million copies to women all over the world.
Needless to say, when Samuel Adams walks into the pharmacy hours later, he only has one thing on his mind. Ibuprofen.
Sadly, he never gets to the Ibuprofen. Mostly because before he gets there, he finds a junkie waving a gun around threatening to kill anybody that moves.
He’s running a fever. That has to be the reason that the girl in the corner begins cursing up a storm and drawing the junkie’s attention. Has to be.
Stop it, stop it, stop it!
She tells herself to take a deep breath. Tells herself that she needs to calm down. Tells herself that if she doesn’t get her act under control, things are going to get ugly.
And, of course, that’s when the curse words start flying.
The more nervous she gets, the worse her Tourette’s becomes. Which is, of course, why she stands up and gives the man a perfect target.
Thank God that the coughing giant in the corner makes the same move and saves her life.
And how does she repay him? By calling him every awful word in the dictionary.
Thank you, Tourette’s
Their story was amazing and heartbreaking at the same time. A must read for sure.
Another LLV hit!
Another LLV hit! Each book I read keeps getting better and better, and I get more invested in this book universe! Sammy and Hastings meet in the most unusual of circumstances – during a robbery. With Hastings having Tourette’s she has trouble keeping herself calm and not experience any tics, which puts her in harms way. Thankfully, Sammy is able to save the day with the help of Hastings and all ends well. As they continue to meet in not typical situations, they start to spend more time together, which forms into a relationship. Something I love about LLV is her ability to bring a storyline from other books into new ones. This one for example has the “villain” in multiple previous books where you know something is up with him but can’t figure out what yet. I will say – I DID NOT EXPECT THIS TO END HOW IT DID! My heart literally broke for Hastings and I can admit that I cried a little (or a lot). In the end, things ended up working out for Hastings and Sammy with the circumstances that remained, and thankfully things ended up how they were supposed to be for the bad guys. Can’t wait for the next installment in this series!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
