I received an ARC via Netgalley in return for an honest opinion review.
I haven t read all this series, but it doesn t matter, the author does enhance some details so that this can be read as a stand alone.
The author asked me if I would like to read this, she knows that sometimes i like to jump into a good love romance sometimes which breaks up my usual genre It has to be a good one though and I know that Anna Clifton delivers those kind of reads that aren t mushy, too overboard and has a realistic feel to them.
This is a story about Sara and Cooper, it does have some intense moments, mushy moments but romantic suspense too Maybe because I read other books and not romantic books often this made this book stand out for me, I always think its nice to swap around certain genres so that you can read afresh I think this was a great book for me to relax with and just sit and enjoy and go with the flowThank you to Net Galley but to the author too for my very good read
75 starsThis book started off a bit slow for me but with the amazing characters I couldn t help but like this book I love Sara and Cooper They just work They have their secrets and hidden agendas but their relationship seems to work for them They don t want to keep secrets from each other but they have good reasons to They had some very cute and sweet moments I had that dopey smile on my face when they were together They really are adorable Sara does have trouble opening up to Cooper but I mean if you knew your husband just got out of jail and was possibly coming after you I would probably push everyone away from me I really felt sympathy for Sara She is constantly living in fear and she has people in her life that she wants to protect than anything She pushes herself to live but also has to keep looking over her shoulder Cooper s family adopts Sara as a sister of sorts and everyone thinks she is just fantastic except for Cooper He is trying to put Sara s husband, Tony Dennis, back in jail but needs to get close to her to find something to use against Tony I like that he was trying to be good to her and wasn t just using her the entire time His family would probably kill him if he hurt her He has to learn to trust Sara as much as Sara has to learn to trust him I love Cooper s family His father and his siblings are really close with Sara She now has a family to love her They are a great family They give Sara another reason to stay strong Sara and Cooper especially have such great depth to their characters We learn about their pasts and how their experiences have affected them I admire how they work to overcome their struggles and keep living My problem with the story is that the plot was moving a bit too slow for me There were some great scenes that made me laugh, cry, smile and keep me on my toes but there were also a few parts of the book that moved so slowly I was starting to lose interest I expected a bit suspense because at any given moment Tony could just show up and that is pretty darn scary I know that Sara has a life and people to care for but I expected intensity More suspense The plot wasn t bad at all but it wasn t consistently the most thrilling or engaging either With all of that said, I liked this book a lot mostly because of the characters but took off a star or so because the plot did drag on and off throughout the book I still want to go back and read the other books in this series, especially the one about Harry and Somer Can t wait I didn t realize this was part of a series when I started it but I am interested to see what the characters have been up to in the other books This book can be read as a standalone I received this ARC via Netgalley.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
Short and sweet review I really liked this book Four stars.
I didn t realise when I requested it from NetGalley that it was the fifth book in a series but I felt it was easy to read as a stand alone.
Cooper Halligan has just returned to Sydney after a stint working in Singapore He s a policeman, a detective, who was infuriated when the drugs squad busted a known crime boss for a lesser offense rather than the murder of a teenage boy a murder Cooper was investigating When Cooper gets home he finds out from his numerous brothers and sisters that his widowed father is getting mighty chummy with said crime boss estranged wife Sara Sullivan In fact his entire family now seems to be best buddies with Sara Only Cooper knows about her husband and he has done his best to keep the beautiful woman away from his family without success Oh, and did I mention that he is also hopelessly in love with her Sara s husband has been released from prison and Cooper and his boss are desperate to get some leverage to put him away for life, so his boss tells Cooper to get close to Sara maybe she will let something slip Sara has secrets of her own Her husband and his goons are stalking her, her landlord is trying to evict his tenants and sell the property so nothing gets properly repaired, and she is trying to get her high school certificate but she is failing maths.
I have a real enjoyment of novels set in Australia and New Zealand Maybe it s because they feel down to earth and about real people than many of the books set in the USA that I read obviously that is also my fault for choosing books where everyone is rich and good looking but not as down to earth and close to home as books set in the UK where I m from which can feel a little too familiar.
I really liked this book, Cooper could have come across as an ass because of his suspicions about Sara but it was softened by the fact that he had been in love with her from afar for so long.
I will most definitely be looking out for the previous books in this series, Anna Clifton has now gone onto my list of go to authors.
