Dane and Izzy.

Complete opposites.

As the New Year begins, they find themselves facing very different circumstances.

Dane is a street racer stuck with a blown engine, no money, and no options after he gets fired for saving a damsel in distress.

Izzy can’t believe she was just rescued by the same handsome stranger she walks past, and lusts after, on a daily basis. With a massive blizzard about to bury the town, she ends up taking him in for the night.

Sparks fly when she brings out his playful side, and he shows her a passion she’s never known before. As they slowly begin to trust each other, walls come down and tragic pasts emerge. Dane is haunted by the family he never had, while Izzy will stop at nothing to deny her birthright.

When Dane receives an offer he can’t refuse, will one bad decision cost him everything? Or will fate intervene and send these two down the path they were destined for?

This is a full length, stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Please be advised that you will find strong language, attractive men with tattoos, a dog with a cat name, steamy bedroom scenes including one involving Doritos, plenty of character backstory, and a very healthy dose of humor.
Another great romantic comedy with a good dose of suspense and hotness from Grace Risata. I adored Izzy - I want to be her friend. She has a way with words that I have not seen in other characters that makes you want to hug her and shake your head at her at the same time. This one has no filter.

Dane is a gentleman - but he doesn't look like one. He wasn't looking for love or friends when he ran from a bad situation, but he isn't afraid to take what life hand him either. There were a few times he was just a little too much of one thing or another, but he was very hard to resist.

At times this seems to run a little long, almost too much story between high points - which you won't hear me say very often. This could have easily been 5 stars with just a little bit of trimming. The end of the story was a great action scene that was very exciting - but also a bit confusing trying to keep track of who was doing what.
