Falling in love could be more dangerous than the past they hide.
Criminal, liar, a fraud are all things that can be said about Kellen Steele. It takes all but three seconds for the notorious bad boy of Three Rivers to set his sights on Sloan Tate.
She is to be his distraction, to help him pull off his biggest lie, which is also his greatest achievement.
Sloan Tate knows how to handle herself. Not looking to settle anywhere never mind down with anyone. Her plan? Close up her late Granny’s estate and leave town as fast as she came.
Sloan knows each day she stays in Three Rivers her past is bound to catch up with her.
Powerless against the chemistry wrapping them together, Kellen and Sloan must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other. 

My review

So this wasn’t a bad book, but I didn’t love it. Kellan Steele has just gotten out of jail for a crime he didn’t commit. He meets Sloan broken down on the side of the road and stops to help. They clash at first and then eventually fall in love. All the while, Kellan has a secret and Sloan’s ex is after her.

There is a lot going on in this book. It is definitely action packed. I liked Sloan. She is strong and fiery and can take care of herself. Kellan is fine. The supporting characters don’t get much development at all, other than Sloan’s cousin/Kellan’s boss-slash-friend Kip. One thing that really bugs me about this book, though, is Kellan’s big idea at the end. It’s a great idea, but earlier in the book Sloan’s narrative mentions how little education they both have. Kellan got a degree while in prison, but we have to assume that degree relates to his secret job. Sloan has a vet assistant certificate but hasn’t worked in that field. So how on earth are they qualified to run the kind of center they decide to open? We can tell ourselves they hired professionals, but the epilogue leads us to believe they are the ones doing it. *scratches head* Huh??

Really, this isn’t a bad book. I just couldn’t connect with the characters.
