This book's so hot, my fingers should be scorched from flipping pages. Sweet Mara has spent a lifetime believing she's low girl on the totem pole when it comes to what makes someone attractive. That said, she's great at friendships, but any encounter with her sizzling neighbor, Detective Mitch Lawson, sends her running for cover. Quite literally, this gal will trip over her own to feet to avoid the man of her dreams.
Mitch has spent years waiting for Mara to give him just one opening. It'll take everything he's got to show her how completely whacked Mara world is.
Following her desperate escape, their worlds collide in order to provide stability for Mara's two young cousins. Luckily, Mitch has all the skills to get those kids and Mara through the maze of protective services while protecting them from the Russian mob, drug dealers, and the genetic cesspool out of which this adorable trio has risen.
Seriously, CRAP, I've found a new series. Not only that, it appears the Chaos series has characters tied to some other series in Ms. Ashley's repertoire. Hmm, maybe I should start to be grateful for this bitterly cold winter and the abundant opportunities to snuggle up with a good book.
