The first time they meet it’s by chance. The second is surely a coincidence. The third…it’s either destiny or he’s a stalker.
This was my first book from this author, and I loved everything about it!
This book was amazing in many ways AND I’m thrilled I found a new author to read. Show Stopper is a spin-off of one of B.J.’s series.’ She has many books that are interconnected stand-alone and I am definitely going to be checking them out. One of my favorite aspects of any novel are secondary characters. If written well, they can make the book greater. If not, then focus is only on the main H/h and as a result the book can become a bit monotonous. That is not the case with this book. There are many secondary characters who, have a story to tell, a background you want to learn about. Truthfully, with this book, one of the secondary characters I want to see get a happily-ever-after is Scotty. There are quite a few characters so I hope the author will give us his book.
Now on to Show Stopper.. At first, I didn’t get the title. What does it have to do with a real estate agent and a firefighter? When that bit was revealed to me, I swooned. This hero was amazing. I also loved that he was older, in his late 30’s. Marco was at a place in his life where meaningless hookups got old. He wanted something more. He wanted a woman to wake up with and come home to every night. But Marco didn’t want a Suzy-homemaker. No, he wanted a sassy, independent woman who knew her own worth and made sure he knew it too. The moment Marco met Renee; he knew she could be the one he’s been searching for. Renee was a great character and I loved her take no nonsense persona. She was strong-willed and a go-getter. But she was also kind, caring, loving and deep inside, a woman afraid of having her heart broken again. The relationship between Marco and Renee started off slowly, as it should. Their chemistry was scorching from the very moment they met, however they did not jump into each other’s arms immediately.
I’m not going into details so you can enjoy this book on your own and I’ve no doubt you will. This book has humor, light angst, if any, a great group of supporting characters and a swoon-worthy hero. Of course there is an antagonist as well which adds a hint of suspense. All of these elements add up to a truly enjoyable read. I definitely recommend this book; a great start to B.J. Harvey’s new series.
This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the tie to read it. 🙂
