Happy Hump Day! I don’t know about you but I am really glad we are on the back-end of the week. So, to celebrate I am bringing to you a novella by the fantastic Jerrie Alexander. You will have seen many reviews I have done of her books. This novella is a great example of Jerrie’s work. It has a fantastic mixture of suspense and romance. For my full review, keep reading after the blurb. I hope you have a great remainder of the week.
Elle Reagan isn’t about to stand by and let a con-artist get away with stealing her grandmother’s life savings. While the legal system moves at a snail’s pace, Elle promises to bring him to justice. She follows him to a ski resort in Colorado, where she hopes to get the evidence needed to put him away for good. But she didn’t count on her roommate being a distraction, because he wasn’t supposed to be her brother’s best friend.
Detective Logan Ford has denied his desire to take Elle into his arms since they were teenagers, but when his partner asks him to follow her to Castle Alainn to keep her out of trouble, Logan finds himself unable to refuse her. He agrees to help catch a thief instead of convincing her to pack her bags and go home. To make matters worse, he can’t seem to remember why he should keep his distance from the delectable, infuriating, independent Elle.
Elle and Logan surrender to their attraction, but as their passion ignites, her plot is discovered. A killer will do whatever it takes to silence her and destroy a love that was destined to last a lifetime
Elle is out to catch the con man who stole from her grandmother. Before she can finish snooping around her brother’s best friend, Logan, shows up and stops her. Both shocked and pleased that her long time crush has unexpectedly shown up she is at first confused why he is there. When Elle realizes her brother sent him to stop her, she decides to turn him into a co-conspirator. They must find incriminating evidence on this con man and stop him from conning the couple who owns the resort they are staying at. But, while they are on the hunt they must also fight the long time attraction that simmers between them. Can Elle and Logan get the evidence they need and survive the passion that consumes them?
As always, this is a fantastic suspense filled romance. Though this was only a novella you really get a great sense of the characters and the story is well-rounded and well written. Elle and Logan have ignitable chemistry. The romance and suspense are woven expertly. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat. This will have you enthralled until the very end. Overall, I think this is another great story by Jerrie Alexander. For anyone, who hasn’t read her books this is an awesome example of her expert story and character building. You will want to pick up all her books after reading this one novella.
