Publisher's Summary

Thirty-two and finally setting up her veterinary practice in the town she once called home, Emma Burnett is on her own and loving it. Independent and driven, she's not letting any man get in the way of her dreams. Not again.

That's fine with Luke McCormack. Divorced and hardly lacking in female company when he needs it, he's devoted to the only faithful companion in his life-his police dog. Still, there's something about Emma he can't shake. When a series of local break-ins leaves Emma vulnerable, she seeks help from the first man to spark her desire in years. And now they're giving each other something they thought they'd lost forever...hope.

    "Words"

    Overall the book was good and much as one would expect of a romance novel. It did seem as if the author was uncomfortable using 'locker room talk' between the guys and honestly should have left that out instead of trying to make it work

    No spoilers from me! Sexy, romantic stories, thrillers, mystery, relationship stories.. my library is a crazy mix.

    "Hope Almost Flames Out"

    I felt that this little romance was predictable and while it was a pleasant listen, it is not a really enticing beginning to a series. It has all of the important elements: unplanned meeting and attraction, long build-up to a relationship they each wanted to deny, some adult sexual experiences, scary moments and resolution.
    Oh, also had a lot of dog stuff, which I liked.
    The narration was excellent.
    I am undecided about this book 2.

    "NOT MUCH IMAGINATION !!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I guess I would have given it more intrigue. This was so vanilla in all areas; the suspense/drama, everyday life, romance & sex. Nothing hear to "grab" me or my emotions.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was typical and predictable.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Like most, not all mind you, but most female narrators the male voice(s) were quite lacking, but I didn't hate it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to many Jaci Burton books and while they are not your "sit on the edge of your seat and hold your breath" type of books most of them did have more substance than this one. I hope the rest of this series picks up the pace.
