Garrett, her close childhood friend and FBI agent assigned to the human trafficking task force, gave his heart to her years ago and wants no other woman.

Does he have a second chance or has her ex stolen her from him again?

After a bad break-up, Madelyn is broke and devastated when her mother passes away. An old childhood friend, FBI agent Garrett Fisher offers her to drive her home and the two reconnect on the drive. When danger is lurking in their small town, can they work together to remain safe?

I found this to be a romantic and interesting short story. Maddy and Garrett had known each other most of their lives, having grown up in a small town, but after Maddy a bad relationship she’d moved into the big city and moved on with her life. Her friendship with Garrett continued which helped make their relationship deepening from friends to lovers realistic and easier in the short length of the story. I feel readers looking for a quick romance story will find this satisfies – as a lot of the focus is on Maddy and Garrett and the progress of their relationship. Had the story been longer I absolutely would have wanted more depth and details of Garrett’s work as an FBI agent and the cases and difficulties he must deal with every day, but I can understand how if the author had done this here the romance side to the story would have been cut short and suffered.

The mystery plot was fast paced and I enjoyed the conflict and suspense it added to the story. I felt Maddy’s calmness in the initial phase of the tension was a little unrealistic given the situation she found herself in and the numerous ways things could have gone very bad very quickly, but again admit that the short length of the story didn’t lend itself to the giving Maddy the time to have a melt-down. I thought the resolution clicked into place a little too easily and I was surprised at how quickly Maddy and Garrett consummated their relationship after her ordeal, but overall the tenseness of the plot and the happiness of the romance growing between Maddy and Garrett had the story feeling balanced and interesting to me.

Throw logic out the door and disconnect your brain, sit back with a glass of wine and this can be one of those good, short stories where you just enjoy a bit of an escape from reality for a while. With a good plot and lovely romance there’s plenty to enjoy about this story.
