Shhh, Mommy's in the Bathroom.,.Reading
I. Loved. This. Book! This was an up all night, read till my eyes were blurry story.
Right from the get go, I pretty much hated Jarod. He did a pretty shitty thing, with no obvious reason. Jarod had a tough hill to climb to get back in my good graces.
Cece has had her heart ripped out and stomped on, repeatedly, by the same person in a short time span. Once she picked up the pieces, she vowed NEVER let another man close enough to do that again. Men become her playground and nothing more. Don't let them in and they can't hurt you.
When Cece starts receiving gifts from a secret admirer she blows them off at first, but her pseudo-brother Dylan thinks otherwise and decides to take matters into his own hands. Dylan hires his friend that is a PI, and it just happens to be....Jarod. When Cece and Jarod's past and present come together, neither will come out unscathed.
This book is the 4th in the "Hamden Series" and W. Ferraro hit this one out of the park.
The story and dialog flowed well. The "stalker" storyline kept me guessing throughout and I kept changing who I thought it was. These characters kept me on a emotional roller coaster. For the most part the story was fast paced and I didn't feel like the story was dragged anywhere. The intimacy was five stars (cold shower anyone?)
If I had one complaint, it would be that I wished Jarod would have explained things better. Don't get me wrong, I think things were explained, was I was just left wanting a little more.
Over all, this is a must read, and on my reread list (I've already read it twice.) This is the 4th book in the series, and their are character overlaps, but this could be a standalone too. I have been lucky enough to see W. Ferraro evolve through each story and it just keeps getting better and better. She is an author to keep your eyes on.
