When Helen Brody needed her office repaired, she never expected that the contractor would be Jamie Evans, the man with whom she shared an unforgettable night a year earlier. Jamie hasn't forgotten Helen, either, and now that he's found her, he's determined not to let her get away again. Helen can't get involved with Jamie, because he wants something she can't give him, but she can't deny the explosive, out of control attraction between them. As they try to work through their feelings, they find that the hit and run driver who destroyed Helen's office has more plans for her. Will they have only a handful of nights together, or will they have the chance to build something lasting?
Three Boundless Stars
I was provided a copy of Love Me in exchange for an honest review. This is the type of book I really like; the two leads had one explosive night together over a year ago, and haven’t been able to stop thinking about each other. Fate brings them back together, and their chemistry does the rest.
Helen is an Attorney specializing in family law; currently working on a custody case that has put her in the line of fire. Jamie is the contractor hired to fix her demolished office, after someone suspiciously drove a car through it. This is when Jamie and Helen’s attractions come into the story, and readers immediately anticipate more. This is also when we are introduced to Helen’s big family of cops. I thought this was weird; they made her the aunt of all the cops, yet she only a few years older. It’s explained later; however, I didn’t feel it added much to Helen’s story. She could have just been one of the sisters, who ran a little wild and had the same backstory; I just think this confused things a bit.
Watson started her world of the Donovan Family a little confusing for my tastes; yet at the same time, we are left with the question of how Helen and Jamie’s story progresses, and curious about how the Donovan siblings will find love. Overall, I liked the story; it had a sexy plot, with suspense, danger, and action. I am giving it 3 Boundless Stars.
