By day, I'm a domestic violence prosecutor. By night, I read romance to restore my faith in love, relationships, and humanity in general.
I'm not a big SEP fan, but this book is an exception. I loved the tension between Sugar Beth and Colin. So often the trope that keeps the H/h apart is something foolish and contrived, a Big Misunderstanding that could be easily resolved if the characters would just sit down and have an adult conversation. This isn't like that: Colin has a really, really good reason to hold a grudge against her. How they get over it is what makes this story so delicious, because that isn't foolish and contrived either. Both characters grow into better people in a natural, believable way.
