Sometimes a man just has to take matters into his own hands… Miranda White has had a crush on S.W.A.T. team sniper John Stephens since he first strode into Fitzy’s Diner. Too bad he’s a serial dater. As a respected business owner, she doesn’t need to become known around town as his next Flavor Of The Month. What she does need is a date for an upcoming retirement dinner for one of Haven’s finest. If she has anything to say about it, it won’t be the notorious bad boy. John definitely has something to say about Randa’s plan to date one of his teammates. He’s had the hots for her since he first sank his teeth into her sweet baked confections. She’s sexy and curvy in all the right places, and he fantasizes about tearing that polyester uniform from her lush body and showing her how versatile handcuffs can be. He’d planned to take his time seducing her, but from their first touch, desire flares hot, hard and primal, temporarily making him forget that the one thing a police officer may not have is time…
Miranda (Or Randa as everyone calls her) is a curvaceous waitress in her family’s diner which the local police always frequent, this is where she knows the town’s playboy John. She has always fancied him, but has never wanted to do anything about it, because of his reputation and she didn’t want to be another notch on his gun belt.
John has had his eye on Miranda since the minute he saw her, he has hinted to her that they should be together, but she has never took him seriously. It is only when she asks about a fellow officer that he is determined that she is not with anyone else.
I found his behaviour when she asked about the fellow officer, to be quite annoying – how he can be annoyed at her for wanting to date other people when he is a serial dater is beyond me.
I found both characters to be quite annoying and I didn’t really connect with them at the start – but as the story went on, I started to like them more, once I realised that John had a real reason to be jealous.
The story line felt a little rushed, but I think this may be because of it being a novella – the only major thing that I didn’t like (hence the four not five stars) is that the ending felt the most rushed, I felt like the ending didn’t have much thought about it and it was just thrown in there. This is just a personal opinion, it didn’t ruin the book though – I still loved it.
I refuse to call this erotica (in my sense of erotica) – there are a few sexual scenes which have a lot of description with them (hence the review on this blog).
I loved the fact that the main thing that drew John to Randa was her curves, even though his other ‘girlfriends’ have been stick thin. I love that the author put this into the book.
