Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

Single parent Paige Harmer is at her wits end about her son. Dillon’s a good kid, but he’s fallen in with a bad crowd. She’s determined to enlist the help of her next door neighbor, the extremely handsome and much younger Tommy Godsoe. Tommy is a local cop, and up until he got shot recently in a police raid, was a dog handler. His injury is such that he can never go back to field work, and he refuses to be a desk jockey. All he wants is to nurse his wounds in solitude, and he’s done a great job driving his friends and colleagues away. But Paige is an unstoppable force. Before he knows it, he’s drawn into their lives. As it turns out, Paige and Dillon are going to need a cop in their corner. And Tommy needs Paige to drag him out of his self-pity and back to life.


While Tommy is wallowing in self pity, he is blindsided by the irresistible and unstoppable force named Paige. At first he finds her a little in your face but then when she leaves, he feels the void she left. He finds himself growing more and more intrigued by her sauciness and respects her relationship and trust in her son. And the more he gets to know her and her son Dillon, the less alone he feels. Growing attached, he can't fight wanting to help Paige out when trouble comes around, even if that means having to contact the friends he has pushed away.

Paige is a single mother with her own successful business and a teenage son about to go to college. After deciding to start over and move, she noticed a change in Dillon. He's been grumpy, has an attitude, and has been hanging with the wrong crowd. Paige knows deep down Dillon's a good kid, but can't help but think he may know why she is being left surprises and having other things happen. Not knowing what else to do, Paige enlists the help of her sexy, younger neighbor, Tommy. She can look past the grumpiness to see that he is a good guy deep down. Now only if she can look past his smoldering look...

What can I say? Norah has done it again. I think this may be my favorite in the Serve and Protect series. I was happy when I found out this book has Tommy in it. We saw a little preview of him in Saving Grace so I was happy he got his own book.

I loved Tommy and Paige together. Tommy was such a pitiful grump at the beginning of the book, you couldn't help but want to jump right in the pages and help him. Paige literally invited herself in and took care of him without even asking him if it was ok. I like that about her. She is a take charge woman that knows what should be done. They balance each other out perfectly. I also really enjoyed that Norah included a couple other first person views of a couple other characters. It made the story that much more interesting. Not to mention the minor little love story thrown in there.

So would I recommend this book you ask? Why hell yes!! I recommend the whole series as a matter of fact. I have read a lot of books and you won't find too many books that are written well but Norah always knocks it out of the park! :)


Loved the pull between the main characters and who doesn't love some good suspense??

The book wasn't full of steamy scenes, now don't get me wrong, there were many times I was fanning myself but they don't take over the book. It was the perfect balance. :)
