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.
