Never to let anyone in.
To never love again.
That way, she wouldn’t ever feel that hurt again.
For a year she’d done just that.
All that was about to change when Kit Carson, a cocky Australian boxer randomly enrolled onto her photography course at college and pushed his way into her life.
Kit was everything Eve hated about pretty boys.
Only, he wasn’t a boy.
He was all man.
Despite her dislike for him, even she couldn’t deny her curiosity.
Things were about to change drastically in Eve’s life, and secrets were about to spill out.
All at the hands of Kit Carson.
RHR RATING 3*/5
From the blurb,the concept of this debut book from a UK based Author,had me intrigued.The start setting the scene,and then moving on to a year later,with Eve trying to move on from the events had potential,and I did like how there was some banter back and forth with her and ‘Kit’,and the introduction to his brothers (who I assume will all get their own stories as the series goes on).
I did however,struggle to get fully into it,for me,both leads frustrated me with how they were at some points in the story,and I did have to put it down for a few days before returning to it,I don’t want to go into detail as to not spoil for other’s,and I stress that this is just my thoughts-As I said there was/is potential,there is some suspense/all not quite as it seems element that hopefully will be further explored as it does end with a ‘cliffhanger’,and even if it didn’t totally wow me,I will be interested to see what the Author has planned.
Title: Covering Ollie(On Call #2)
Author: Freya Barker
Release Date: May 14, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.
Living in Durango, Colorado for the past eighteen years allowed Ollie Rizzo to build her own business and carve out a quiet existence for her and her teenage daughter. She’s used to going it alone. However, their new silver-haired neighbor might present a problem—not only is he handsome—he’s also Durango’s new chief of police; a complication she can’t afford.
For recently widowed Joe Benedetti, the job offer as Durango’s new chief of police came at the right time. With life, the new job, and his two young sons settling into a comfortable routine, he does his best to ignore the beautiful and intriguing woman across the street. Yet when he discovers she’s caught the attention of the FBI, there is no way he can stay away.
Their worlds collide with the appearance of FBI Special Agent Cruz Livingston. The agent has a warning to deliver, one that spins life in Durango out of control, giving Joe a crucial mission—keep Ollie alive.
RHR RATING 5*/5
The second book in this series,and another winner as far as I’m concerned.Once again Freya has created a story that gives the reader a good mix of slow burn romance with some mystery/intrigue from start to finish,told in a DUAL POV,with some twists and surprises along the way. As the book blurb states enough,I don’t feel the need to give all that much away,what I really enjoyed was the interactions between both leads,there was attraction/chemistry between Ollie and Joe(who are like most of her other characters older in years),yet because of insecurities on both sides as I’ve said already it was a slow burn gradual build up. Being set in the same world as her other series (Rock Point) there was a cross-over of character’s which also added to my overall enjoyment of reading.
I hope there is more to come in this series!
Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy.
She is the author of the Cedar Tree and Portland, ME Series, the Northern Lights Collection and the Rock Point Series. She is also co-author of the SnapShot Series.
