Of course it has a happy ending but then what story of this genre doesnt?
I will defiantely look for more work by this author
likeable. You can even get to understand why Alex left keira all those
years ago, although it left heartbreak it was all the sweeter when they
finally came back together. The storyline was good and all in all a
very enjoyable read.
The story of Alec returning to his childhood town and his childhood sweetheart is slightly predictable but riveting nevertheless.
Good characters, hot sex scenes (only in the second half of the book but once they start the never stop!) and a good pace make this book a keeper.

This was a good story. Not great and it certainly didn't "wow" me, but decent. I think my biggest issue was being unable to connect with the characters. I never understood why they did what they did. Why did they love each other? Besides the sex. Both in past and present that was the only explanation for their love. That's lust, not love. So, for me, the romance portion of the story felt one dimensional and fell flat.
The suspense was a little inconsistent. When Keira was in danger, the suspense was great! Edge-of-my-seat exciting and the pacing was excellent. But as soon as the scene was done, it got boring for me. The end felt really rushed too. Which always disappoints me. The good points is, of course, the writing, steady pace overall, and a believable plot. Pretty average read. I have no regrets, it was good enough for me to not DNF.
Keira Morgan had finally gotten over the heartbreak of having Alex stand her up on the day they were supposed to elope. It had been a long time ago. Ten years in fact. One could get over anything in ten years. Couldn't they? As she came face to face with Alex outside Franny's Style Salon in the newly revived downtown district of Freedom, she discovered that the one thing a person couldn't get over was being stood up at the altar - even though it had been ten long years ago.
Seems Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.
Lauren Bach has written one hot book - in more ways than one. Word of warning - you will need an oven mitt to handle SLOW HANDS. The steam literally rises from the pages as you turn them. Lauren has a fascinating way of combining two genres, romance and mystery, that leaves the reader breathless - and begging for more.
Now Griggs sentence has been commuted, and he'll be returning to Freedom to live in a halfway house. Alec also knows about the assault and battery, and attempted rape Ian was never charged with, against Keira. Ian blames Keira for his brothers' death, and the ATF intends to use her and the missing money to apprehend not only Ian, but also his mobster link.
When the FBI calls to inform Keira of Ian's return to Freedom, they use her affection for her grandfather to secure her cooperation in their case. But Alec arrives in town early, catching her unprepared. Despite meddlesome rivals, sexual tension sends sparks of electricity neither can ignore. But when the danger ends, Alec has a life elsewhere, and Keira's life is firmly bound to the small town of Freedom.
With her first release, LONE RIDER, author Lauren Bach established her hard hitting, powerful style in the romance genre. SLOW HANDS continues that extraordinary voice in a novel rich with fast paced writing and sexual tension. While readers may grow a bit impatient with the man hunting, secondary character who successfully intimidates Keira in her personal life, they will cheer Keira's spunk as she handles testosterone laden professional rivals and lurking danger. A quick read, readers will thoroughly enjoy Bach's SLOW HANDS. Highly recommended.
Alec arrives in town early so he and Keira can get their story straight. Though Alec tries to keep Keira safe from Ian, she does not want to cooperate. Soon that high spark between them reignites into a fiery love, but as the danger mounts for Keira she wonders how soon after the peril ends he will leave this time.
SLOW HANDS is a fast-paced romantic suspense that hooks the audience into anticipating when Ian will strike. Alec is an engaging hero though the audience will question the way he left Keira a decade ago. Readers will appreciate Keira a brave soul running a business in a male chauvinist environment in which she refuses to take crap, but loathe Keira the wimp accepting junk from a "plastic" rival in her personal life. Still Lauren Bach furnishes sub-genre readers with a pleasant tale.
