In Sugarland, Detective Taylor Kayne is always ready with quick wit and a quicker smile. But he's about to meet a woman who will make him want to take his sweet time....
Taylor is a laid-back, smart-aleck kind of lawman. He's also a man's
man, as well as every woman's private fantasy. But years ago, he was part of a botched hostage situation that ended with him being hailed as a tough-as-nails hero--even though the pain, fear, and shame from that terrible day still haunt his every moment.
Cara Evans couldn't care less about Taylor's pain. In the moment he became a so-called hero, she lost someone she dearly loved. Yet neither of them is prepared for the instant, undeniable attraction that flares between them--or the danger thant's soon hot on their heels.
Jo Davis has released her second book in the series Sugarland Blue about police officers and its fantastic!
Taylor is a police officer with delayed PTSD due to a unsuccessful hostage situation in which several people were killed. He now has to live with the guilt and nightmares from that situation. He moved far away to hopefully leave that behind.
Cara is a head singer in a band and also does bartending. She is living with pain and revenge due to the killing of her sister in a hostage situation.
Taylor and Cara meet at a bar where they are both trying to help out Blake a gay teenager who has been disowned and is struggling on his own. What they don't know is that they both have ties to one another because of that hostage situation.
This romantic suspense story starts off quickly and keeps on going to the very end.
I enjoyed the way the author Jo Davis made the characters feel real and there is so much emotion running through this book. It kept me on my toes trying to figure out what was going to happen next and if Taylor and Cara could overcome the guilt, pain and revenge to make a life together. The scenes are very steamy, fun to read and make you want to pull for them to get together.
