Resisting her brother’s best friend is futile…
Faith Fitzpatrick isn’t looking for a hero. Burned one too many times in the past, she’s now sworn them off completely. And when her brother’s best friend, Connor, convinces him to join the dangerous SWAT team, Faith has never been more anti-hero. What’s wrong with having a safe job? There’s nothing safe about Connor. Confident, sexy, and sporting a six-pack that should be illegal, he’s everything she doesn’t want.
When his best friend’s sister moves to town, local cop Connor Maguire knows he’s in trouble. Faith is feisty, funny, and talks trash like nobody’s business. She’s also his partner’s sister—and so totally off limits. Working on the Fall Festival together, they agree to a truce and become friends. But the more time Connor spends with Faith, the more he’s willing to risk the wrath of her brother. If he could only convince her to take a risk on him, too.
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was a good book. I enjoyed watching Faith fight her attraction to Connor. Yeah, he was an ass in the beginning of the book, and then had his own struggle. But it seemed to me that Faith fought because she didn't want to end up how her Mom did after her Dad was killed in the line of duty. So Connor and Faith start out fighting with each other, literally. Then move towards a friendship due to Connor's being partnered with Faith's brother, and he spends a whole lot of time with them. One thing leads to another while getting the town ready for a celebration, and the attraction just sparks. The heart wants what the heart wants, the hell with the brain. Faith's brain short circuits one day when Connor is called to duty and she runs away. Then something happens and Faith has to decide if she has the heart to give, and if Connor will give her another chance.
