Review by Wisteria
When newly appointed U.S. Attorney Ro Garcia agreed to waitress for her sister's big catering job, she had no idea she would run into the biggest mistake of her life—Jake Anderson.
The musician from her past is hot, hunky and oh-so-handy, and the current of sexual tension between them hasn't dissipated one megawatt. Newly divorced, she's finally ready to work him out of her system with a weekend of no-holds-barred sex and picks romantic Santa Fe, New Mexico as the perfect, out of the way location for their passionate rendezvous.
Though ready, willing, and able to burn up the sheets with Ro, Jake has every intention of convincing her he's after more than her luscious body and the hot, passionate sex she's offering. But secrets have a way of getting out, and lies surface that threaten to tear them apart. Is Jake destined to lose the love of his life once again? Or can he convince Ro things are seldom as they seem?
Rosie has come home recovering from a failed marriage. Jake has spent years longing for the girl who got away. Sparks fly when they bump into each other at a catering job she is helping her sister with.
Stimulating and brisk, the story delivers a healthy dose of WOW in just a few pages. Captivating characters with heartfelt emotions make this story a hot and wild ride until the very end. Along with the vivid descriptions of the awe-inspiring New Mexico landscape, steamy love scenes will set your screen on fire and leave you breathless. Ms Aragon has done a wonderful job of showing what second chances are all about.
I would happily read this story again and anything else this author puts out. Fabulous job, Ms. Aragon. My hat's off to you.
