Goodreads:  After her life in Columbus, Ohio falls apart, Elizabeth Marshall moves a little over an hour away to the small town of Springfield. She wants to start over—leave her past behind—and build something new for herself. 
Christopher Daniels enjoys the simplicity of being a bachelor. He has no desire to change that philosophy…until Elizabeth shows up. He’s determined to resist her charms. But when her past begins to threaten her new life, it forces him into the role of protector. 
Will he be able to resist Elizabeth and still keep her safe?

Kritters Thoughts:  Before I dive into my review of this specific book, I want to say a thought or two about the romance genre.  I like romance books, they typically read real quickly and are nice and easy reads.  The reader usually knows the outcome at the beginning, but the book is still completely worth reading.  

Now into this book.  Elizabeth Marshall has moved away due to some personal experiences and has decided to keep a low profile and start over.  As she is moving into her apartment she runs into a good looking guy - Christopher Daniels.  He has lived in this town his entire life and after a bad relationship he is just trying to focus on his career.  

Overall I liked the book.  I liked these two characters.  I enjoyed reading about the past that each had that brought them to this point.  The characters and setting were great.

Here comes the but.  BUT I couldn't get past their insta love.  Christopher was talking about how much his body was craving hers way too fast and with her past (not spoiling) Elizabeth got too physical with him way too fast in my opinion.  I of course like my romance books to be a little on the less steamy side and it felt as though from page one these characters could only think about the physical.  

I liked the book, but I may hesitate before I read another Sherri Hayes romance.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
