Genre: Contemporary romance
Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they’re in the air, she sees another side of him. He’s driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it’s Parker who gets her engines going...
Zoe is a high-spirited and highly independent woman. Because she had parents with less than spectacular parenting skills, she’s used to taking care of her brother and sister and still continues to despite them all being adults. In reality, Zoe uses her focus on her siblings and her career as a way to deflect from some negative past experiences. I won’t give those up but they are in the story.
Parker is a ruggedly handsome man bit with the wanderlust spirit. He spent his early adulthood trying to escape his small town life and now does so in pursuit of bad guys. As a special agent for U.S. Fish and Wildlife he often finds himself in different towns across the country for who knows how long, this is what he’s always wanted until his job forces him to have a break. Will he find more than he’s expecting on his trip to Idaho?
Just as Zoe is ready to get back in the dating game Parker enters her life…as her roommate. There is such a great tease with the two of them. Of course, we know eventually they’ll end up together but it’s the getting there that is the most fun. We get to see both of them learn to let each other in and be vulnerable. Fortunately it’s not all serious. There is plenty of fantastic dialogue filled with wit and charm.
Shalvis’ books are always a favorite of mine. I’ve not read a story of hers yet that isn’t complete with laughter, cheekiness, and good old fashioned sweet romance. I’ll always bet on her for a truly entertaining story.
