Actress Sophie Birch is used to having to look out for herself. So when her theater catches fire and a big guy scoops her up into his arms to save her, she’s going to fight every step of the way. Even if he’s a cop. And really sexy. And his arms feel oh-so-good.
Finn Kelly can’t help but appreciate how good the woman in his arms looks in her sexy pink lingerie. Even if she’s currently resisting arrest.
But as the two get to know each other, they’re both surprised by the things Finn is willing to do to get closer to her. And when Sophie’s estranged father arrives in town and starts causing trouble, the stage is set for disaster…unless Finn can convince her that, for once in her life, she has someone to lean on.
4.5 stars — I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.
This was a fabulous conclusion to what was a really witty, engaging, and fun series. And no, you most certainly do not need to read the other books in the series to enjoy this story, but if you find yourself enjoying this one, trust me, the rest are just as engaging. And what’s great is that each hero and heroine are SO DIFFERENT, but equally lovable.
My heart broke for Sophie, and how she grew up, and what she saw for her future because of her conman father. And while sometimes it felt like her growth took a bit longer than I’d like, I did like watching her find her happiness, find her big family, and truly find love. It was very rewarding. And I loved seeing how she interacted with big groups, whether it was watching her direct in the theatre, or direct the Kelly family during trivia. She entertained me.
And Finn was pretty adorable. I really loved having a hero who was a cop who was quite honestly very different from the usual cop heroes you read so often. He was protective, he had a very strong sense of right and wrong, but he loved so strongly. He wasn’t seriously damaged or anything. I’m not saying he didn’t have flaws, but you got to see him try to work through those himself. And I just absolutely adored seeing him pursue Sophie when he decided she was the one for him, and she was worth risking broken hearts for (not just his, but his family’s).
And Sophie and Finn had fabulous chemistry…you really felt their draw to each other. I loved the way they bantered and interacted. They complimented each other well.
Finn’s family was hilarious and adorable. I loved what they brought to the story, and how Finn’s Mom was an integral part of Sophie’s growth. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Frank, but I was satisfied how that played out. And obviously the glimpses of Keira, Zach, Maya, and Alex were fantastic. Actually, I wouldn’t have minded more…
So yeah. Fun and flirty, with some feels and a super satisfying ending.
