It’s love. Trust me.
After a lifetime on the move, Ivy Snow is an expert in all things temporary—schools, friends, and way too many Mr. Wrongs. Now that she owns a successful taco truck in San Francisco and an apartment to call home, Ivy’s reinvented life is on solid ground. And she’s guarded against anything that can rock it. Like the realities of a past she’s worked hard to cover up. And especially Kel O’Donnell. Too hot not to set off alarms, he screams temporary. If only his whispers weren’t so delightfully naughty and irresistible.
Kel, an Idaho sheriff and ranch owner, is on vacay, but Ivy’s a spicy reason to give his short-term plans a second thought. Best of all, she’s a tonic for his untrusting heart, burned once and still in repair. But when Ivy’s past intrudes on a perfect romance, Kel fears that everything she’s told him has been a perfect lie. Now, if only Ivy’s willing to share, Kel will fight for a true love story.

“I’m the law.”
“The law can be dirty,” she said.
“True.” He let a teasing smile come into his voice. “And I can be very dirty, but only off duty, and only if you ask real nice.”
She laughed out loud at that, the sound both soft and musical. “Okay, I’ll give this to you—you’re funny. And maybe also sexy as hell, but this isn’t happening.”
Sexy as hell? He’d take that any day of the week. “We’re just talking.”
“Uh huh,” she said dryly. “But when men talk, they think they’re flirting, and to them flirting leads to everything else, which is always a disappointment. And if I wanted to be disappointed,” she said, “I could just go inside and watch The Bachelor.”
“How do you know I’d disappoint?”
“You’re a man, aren’t you?”

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is book #8, in the Heartbreaker Bay series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to greater understand the series, I recommend reading this in order.
Ivy has never been able to really count on anyone. She is finally building a home for herself and her business. Now with feelings creeping in for someone who will not be staying, she is starting to feel vulnerable again.
Kel has issues of trust on his own. Feeling like Ivy is hiding something is hindering what could be a new relationship for them both. Can they move beyond the past and create of future together?
This book felt truly like a slow burn. The heat is there and each chapter stokes the flames until finally you know the fire is coming. I loved the banter among the characters. I also enjoyed a peek into the previous characters from this series we all love.
