Detective Mike Sterling walked away from his dream job telling himself it was to honor the promise he’d made his mother, while lying in a Chicago emergency room. A year later, he’s still fighting the demons that followed him back to his boyhood town.
Taryn Watts is an award-winning designer, going from project to project, living from a suitcase. Her plan for Renlend Kansas was the same as always. Go in, get the job done and get out, just the way she likes it. Growing up as a cop’s daughter, her every move was controlled. When she escaped to college she vowed to never fall in love with a cop –ever. Until she found herself sitting across from the ruggedly handsome stranger. Looking into Mike’s ice blue eyes they pulled her, called to her, but there was a haunting in them she knew too well.
Mike is drawn to Taryn, her passion for her work and her stunning beauty left him breathless, but what surprises him most is the peace he feels when he’s near her. Maybe it’s because Taryn is a temporary addition to his town and his secret is safe, or maybe it’s because she makes him feel safe. Mike knows he can’t keep up this charade and when Taryn moves to Renlend for an extended stay he can’t hide the truth any longer.
Can Taryn forget he’s a cop and give him her heart, or will his demons drive them apart?
First thoughts after.....
Can't wait for Gabby's story!!!
How distracted did I get???
Mike's Way Back is a wonderfully sweet love story that Mike had me wrapped around his pinkie from beginning to end. Taryn is one tough chica but Mike may get through to the real her. Mike oh Mike, Mike, Mike.....I've had a book boyfriend crush on you since RTL~ Carter's Treasure. I love the alpha who is a cuddly teddy bear to the women in his life! Mike's a little spicy and worth every second!
I give Mike's Way Back.....
