Mama Saidby Wendy Byrne
Down on her luck blues singer, Gabriella Santos, escapes her over- protective family, along with a series of bad relationships, for a gig in Chicago. She is determined to prove she can stand on her own two stiletto-clad feet and make a fresh start. But when she tangles with the sexy but aloof bar owner, Shane O'Neil, she begins to believe she might have bitten off more than she can chew. When she gets mugged, shot at, witnesses a hit and run and sees somebody murdered, she knows she's in way over her head.
Ex-special forces guy turned detective and reluctant bar owner, Shane O'Neil, has a laundry list of things he doesn't like, starting with cops—especially his stepfather and stepbrother, who top the list. He also doesn't like a too-beautiful-for-her-own-good blues singer trying to tell him how to run his bar. She's pushy, chatty, high-maintenance and does everything she can do to get under his skin—from her flawless latte-colored skin, to her long sexy legs, to her incredible voice, he can hardly think of anything else. Which is a really bad thing since Shane thrives on being in control. But when he ends up beaten to a pulp in a Chicago alley, he has no choice but to rely on Gabriella for help.
Despite the sizzling chemistry between them, finding the balance between trust and commitment is a formidable task.

This was an very good read. Great plot, story and characters. This book is more of a suspense than romance, but that was ok with me because I was so was caught up with what was going to happen next with Gabriella & Shane. First time reading this author and I was not disappointed. I recommend this read.
