Beau and Anabelle have a less than conventional meeting when he rescues her from being run over by a careless bicyclist. Their attraction is immediate, but Beau is quick to disappear after turning down Ana’s invitation to go get coffee. But running away doesn’t have the affect he was hoping for and he finds himself searching her out so he can hopefully apologize for his behavior.
There wasn’t much to the characters beyond their primary quirks: Ana’s constant need to run away once things get too good and Beau’s emotional distance, harbored by his addiction to his job. They were ok, but I was hoping for more depth and connection.
The plot is slow at times. The drama is low, but when it’s there, it’s typically caused by pride and poor communication. It gets kind of old after a bit.
The heat level is mild to moderate, but their chemistry can be intense at times. Despite some minor plot inconsistencies, it’s a good book. There just wasn’t anything worthy of fireworks.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
