The best thing about this book is the cover. That's the only reason I bought it. It would make a good beach or vacation read because parts of it are amusing and simply because you can always stop reading and stare at the cover for a minute or three. However, the story does not live up to the potential of the cover.
This is the story of an Alpha male cop, Taylor and a female doctor, Claire. Her best friend and his brother are married. Taylor and Claire slept together at the wedding, but Claire ran out on him the next morning because: she was scared, he was too hot for her and obviously had lots of women, her father was a cop and was killed in the line of duty, her twin brother was a cop and is now in a wheel chair, she doesn't want to have anything to do with cops. Take your pick or choose them all. Eight months later they are together again because Claire's aunt is dating a suspect in an investigation that Taylor and his brother are involved in and Claire is experiencing some unexplainable near fatal accidents and is herself friends with a person of questionable character.
This book has been described as a light suspense humorous romance and it is, with an emphasis on light. I didn't find Claire very engaging. I thought for a supposedly highly educated intelligent woman her reasons for not just running out on Taylor, but then refusing to have anything else to do with him, until her life was in danger, weak. I did like Taylor's character and the fact that he'd only had sex with one other woman besides Claire, his ex-wife. That was endearing. Over all however, I found the attraction between Taylor and Claire to be based on lust, they just needed to get it out of their system. After their one night together and the fact that she would not see him or return his phone calls, why he was still pining after this woman was a mystery. Contrary to other opinions I found the characters could have been a little further developed, especially since the storyline itself was so light and the villians were kinda obvious and predictable. The most interesting character was Hitch, Claire's aunt pet parrot.
