“The easiest-and hardest-decision she’ll ever make starts with a kiss.”

“Coming Home,” Book 1

In high school, Bianca Charleston was a nobody. An overweight wallflower, so invisible that Cole, the boy she had a crush on, never even knew she existed.

Things have changed, and she’s finally ready to show off her new bombshell look. Sort of. Maybe. After a one-sided pep talk with her cat, she takes a deep breath and flies home to help out with the annual hospital carnival. Cole is there, too-and he still has no idea who she is.

FBI field officer Cole Johnson doesn’t have an easy job, and his nights are usually booked solid. Then in walks Charlie, a blonde with killer…everything. Suddenly he’s mentally clearing his schedule for a rare night out.

While Charlie doesn’t do one-night stands, somehow after-dinner dessert is served up against the wall of her hotel room. But happiness will have to navigate an emotional minefield of preconceived notions-and a couple of not-so-secret stumbling blocks.

“Warning: Contains a former ugly duckling, and a big-hearted FBI agent who knows how to get his money’s worth at a kissing booth. Plus, a little black dress that comes off a whole lot easier than Dorothy’s ruby slippers.”

How a wallflower became a bombshell…..

Most everyone has a crush in high school or college. Years later in her life, when she met her crush again she’s nothing like what he would remember, if he remembered her, from high school.

With a little help from her best friend, Bianca, affectionately known as Charlie, gets the opportunity to show off her new self. Cole never knew what hit him!

Cole is an FBI agent. What he does not expect was to meet the beautiful Bianca and fall in love with her. He’s a seriously sexy character but it isn’t just his outer hotness, he’s truly a nice guy and the way he treats Bianca is truly heart felt romantic.

I was pleased to see that this wasn’t an instant love even though the book isn’t lengthy. Yes, she had a crush on him years ago and maybe it still colored her adult life but, the author showed the slow build kind of love. I saw them get to know each other and find out more about their lives. To develop the relationship. It didn’t hurt at all that they a passionate chemistry.

I loved reading this book as it gave me more than I expected. I expected the wallflower Bianca to meet Cole years later fall in love and live happily ever after. However, I got more, this is a plot that I see every now and then but the author included a lot of content in it that surprised me and had me fully involved to the very end. That’s a good book!
