“It was written in the main character's voice which was good. The main character wasn't perfect which was nice and made it so there were some comic moments. The mystery was good.”Sotteria W wrote this review Sunday, October 13, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Thirty-year-old fitness center owner Blair Mallory is the sole witness to a crime, which causes police lieutenant Wyatt Bloodsworth to fear for Blair's safety, and justifiably so, when an attempt is taken on Blair's life as well, not long after the initial crime. Aside from her life now being in apparent jeopardy, Blair's main concern is the anger and intense emotion she still feels for Wyatt after being completely ignored by him after their three dates two years ago. She is now determined to show him that she has no interest in him whatsoever, and he is now determined to not let her out of his sight.
This is a fun romantic suspense, with both the hero and heroine having ridiculously stubborn and headstrong personalities, which makes for some laugh-out-loud dialogue between them at times. They drive each other crazy, but can't get enough of each other either.”

“Blair Mallory witnesses a murder. The victim is one of the members of her club, Great Bods who had taken to dressing like Blair. In fact she was so good at it that she could easily been mistaken for Blair. Lt. Wyatt Bloodworth dumped Blair cold two years ago after only three dates without any explaination or phone call. When he hears that a blond woman was murdered at her club his first thought is that it was Blair so he rushes over to the club. Upon discovering that Blair is fine he decides that he wants a second chance with her and that he is going to protect her. No matter if Blair wants him to or not.
This novel has plenty of romance, but is overflowing with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The author, Linda Howard, writes the story as if Blair is actually talking to the reader. With Blair's witty mind and "don't mess with me, I'm no push over" attitude, I found myself actually laughing aloud often.”
“A very entertaining romantic comedy with lots of action and intrigue. I liked the alpha hero but the self confident heroine stole the show with her witty first person narrative. Sometimes I had to roll my eyes at the bad guys motivation. Health club owner Blair witnesses a murder and an old boyfriend police Lt. Wyatt is investigating the case.
“Fun, at times slightly cringing but overall fun, well written.”Kelsey wrote this review Tuesday, November 27, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Written in the first person by someone who is more used to using her looks and he fact that people underestimate her than using the smarts she was born with. Someone who knows that that's the way the world works and is willing to use it. Her name is Blair Mallory, she runs a health club, founded with the procedes from her divorce. The club is successful and she's happy with her life until Nicole Goodwin. Nicole decides that she wants to be Blair so she slowly makes herself over to be her, however she's not a nice woman and when several of Blair's clients approach her with complaints, Blair is only happy not to renew her membership. When Blair discovers Nicole's car in the parking lot as she's closing up she's sure it spells trouble, and it does, only not what Blair expects. There's shots, that Blair assumes are from Nicole only to discover that Nicole is dead. When Blair starts having more accidents that's when she wonders was it because of how she looked that Nicole died.
Lt Wyatt Bloodsworth enters the fray. An ex of Blair's he's used to being in charge, but Blair isn't having any of that. Having to live with him to keep her from harm doesn't suit her, particularly as they're both very attracted. He can turn her no's into yesses too easily.
It's fluffy and reminds me of early Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich, only without some of the annoying tendencies to rush into danger. A fun character that I look forward to reading more about. ”
“This is not Linda Howard's usual style of book. It was told in the first person, and was really funny. :) If you're a fan of Janet Evanovich, you'll enjoy the laughs and mystery of this book.”LovesMyHusky wrote this review Thursday, July 19, 2012.
