I received this book for review and was intrigued by the description. It is a romance, but the hero of the tale is a 40 year old man, which is rare. Love handles are mentioned. Other than that he's in fine form of course. :)
The twist in this story is that he is the victim of an abusive relationship and ends up with a psycho stalker ex. He has to struggle with the fact that he was raised to never hit a woman so he has taken some hard knocks due to his refusal to defend himself. He won't even raise his arms in a defensive move against her.
Luckily his new love interest is a Deputy Sheriff with no issue smacking another woman around if needed. But of course Boone doesn't want his new girlfriend "protecting" him, a big strong man. Tension ensues.
The sexytimes get into the strong descriptive side of life - I'm generally happy with these being left more to the imagination than spelled out in exact detail, but that's just me.
At 300 pages, it's a quick, escapist novel to entertain an afternoon with.
