This is the 5th book in the Broken Heart, OK series by Michele Bardsley and the story of Simone Sweet and Braddock Hayes.
Moving into Broken Heart seemed like the perfect transition for Simone Sweet and her young daughter, Glory. With her ex-husband gone after attempting to murder Simone, and Glory being mute since the incident, it is one place where she can feel safe, and almost forget she's a ravenous vampire...
No one is without secrets, but Simone's are big. She'd hate to have them interfere with what's developing with local hunk Braddock Hayes. When not turning her legs to jelly, he's building an Invisi-shield around Broken Heart and helping Glory speak again. But when Simone's past resurfaces, it threatens to ruin her second chance...
I love this series and always look forward to a fun, quick read. Well this book was just as good as the previous installments - but it was a little more on the serious side. It still had it's funny moments - but not as many.
Simone was a victim of domestic violence and we all know that is no laughing matter. But she has tried to put all of that behind her and concentrate on the present and maybe even the future, if Braddock has anything to say about it. :)
Things are going smoothly, as smoothly as they can when you're a blood sucking vampire, until things start getting hinky. Simone no longer feels safe and someone tells her it may have something to do with her past.....
Despite the serious subject matter, this was a good read. I look forward to the next installment. :)
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
