Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book to read for review by the book tour manager. I am not being paid for this review.
When Cricket Hooper moves to Seattle she only has a couple of goals—find a job and an apartment near her friend Chelle, and basically to live a quiet, normal life. However, it isn’t long before life becomes far from normal.
When a mysterious man helps get her car out of the mud after she makes a wrong turn, she finds herself in his thrall. He wines and dines her, quite literally, and before Cricket can stop it, things are steamy and serious…very serious.
Cricket is thrown aback when Jyme turns out to be more than a simple fisherman, but then she isn’t telling all of her story either.
I like Cricket, she’s a great well written, full figured, real woman. She has a great friend in Chelle and I really enjoy their interaction. And this might be totally trivial, but it makes me happy when books I read are set in Seattle. I love that city and I go up there every chance I get. Heels of Love is a slick, fast paced sizzling romance, with hot hot hot scenes. What I like is it’s not love at first sight and explores the concept of lust at first sight, and two adults being in a relationship without a lot of labels. I’m interested to see where this book goes in book two, as book one ended on an emotional punch. Jyme is a character that I initially liked, but a couple of things happen within the story that made me pause and reconsider my feelings on him. His and Cricket’s relationship as it evolves takes on some seriously challenging emotions, conversations and events, and at times he really kind of scared me.
This is a good book, and I enjoyed reading it. There’s plenty of action, and real life situations with a bit of mystery and the unknown thrown in. If you’re looking for a great real romance, I suggest picking up Heels of Love. There were a few things that pushed a couple of my own personal buttons, but it didn’t take away from my liking this book and the joy I got reading it.
