Why I read: I’m from near the Pacific Northwest.
Deputy US Marshal Jamie MacDougall assumes his latest assignment is just another security detail, but when he finds himself falling for the gorgeous key witness he’s sworn to protect, it takes everything he has to keep things professional.
When Ashley Pandy enters the WITSEC program, with a new identity and a new life far away from Seattle and Jamie, he tries to move on, but a year later, with no hope of seeing him again, he still can’t forget the man who stole his heart. Ashley walked away from love for noble reasons.
Jamie let him go because it was the honorable thing to do. When a foolish decision gives them a second chance to be all kinds of wrong, can they finally get it right?
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. I’m always game to try a new author, so leapt in with this one without checking. Glad I took the chance. The premise was pretty simple – Deputy US Marshal falls in love with his protectee. All kinds of not allowed going on there. But if we stuck to the rules, life would be so boring.
I liked Ashley. His style, his quirky humor, and mostly his dedication to his dying best friend. That storyline broke my heart. I admit a few tears. I also liked Jamie. Dedicated to his family, but willing to give it all up because of his love of Ashley.
The ending didn’t feel entirely realistic, but I was willing to suspend my disbelief. This was a cute story I enjoyed. I’ll mention Jon Curtis. He’s a narrator I haven’t heard before and I enjoyed his performance. Now, I presume Finn has a book coming up…I can’t wait to hear his story.
