Well there went what little faith I had in the judicial system. Liselle is from an unbelievably abusive family and even restraining orders won’t protect her. When she finds out her brother fathered a daughter she opts to contact her and meet with her. Even though she’s in hiding from her family because they always root her out and hit her, literally, and extort money. And the law can’t help her. I had a hard time with that part of the story.
Regardless, Liselle is cut from an entirely different cloth and feels connected to her niece instantly and relieved her abusive brother is now out of the picture. But to protect them all from her nightmare she leaves and is rescued by John, her niece’s uncle, when her car breaks down. They have a wonderful night of passion and then she leaves. Months later John is contacted and he goes to find Liselle deathly ill. He brings her back to the fold and chaos ensues.
I enjoyed the hyper speed romance between Uncle John and Aunt Liselle as well as John’s interactions with his all-female family. Liselle, in all her damaged glory, came across as vigilant and caring but I really hope she gets some therapy. And that John goes with her. These two are majorly damaged and I felt that was actually the glue that held them together. The sex was steamy but maybe went a little too far too fast for some. All in all a good read.
Liselle isn't looking for a hero, especially not at the ripe old age of forty-three, but when John saves her from a blizzard, she can't help falling just a little bit in love.
He's sexy, strong, and ex-military, with a sassy niece and four older sisters who clearly adore him. Even so, looks alone aren't enough to convince her that he can be trusted. After all, her brother and father tormented her for years—she knows better than to think a man can make her happy.
When John comes to her rescue, will she let old habits rule? Or will she let him heat her up and melt the fear in her heart?
