Overview

He's got the temperament of a lion, and she's just the one to tame him.

Police records clerk Emma Beaumont has always played it safe, never taking many risks. Quiet, shy, and a little overweight, she's convinced herself that she's comfortable with the way her life is. That is until she lays eyes on incredibly sexy Lieutenant Johnny Street. But she's never met anyone with such a terrible attitude. He's a jerk. Everyone thinks so.

Little by little, Emma is forced to uncover a stronger, spunkier part of herself, one that isn't afraid to stand up to him. As she gets to know him, she starts seeing glimpses of a very different man. A man who has known great heartache, and as it turns out, has good reason for embracing such bitterness. Behind his sharp tongue and harsh demeanor, lies a young man who's desperately afraid of losing what's left of himself.

As Emma's intense desire for Johnny turns to love, she will have to ask herself how far she'll go to chip away at his frosty heart. And at what cost.

    Johnny is the police departments jerk. He doesn't allow anyone t

    Johnny is the police departments jerk. He doesn't allow anyone to get close to him. He is excellent at his job but his job is a little harder because he knows Emma likes him. He wants nothing to do with her. Emma is shy, has self doubts about her body and really likes Johnny even if she doesn't know why.She finally has enough of his attitude and begins to dish it back to him. She thinks she will finally get over her crush. However the more she banters with Johnny the more she gets to see a different side of him. One that even he may not know exist. Now she has to see if her growing love will be enough to get him to open or if she should give up and leave.




    I adore Emma!! She is the girl you think is all sweet and shy and has real curves. She shows a different side when she gets around Johnny. She opens up more and begins to comeback at everything he throws at her. She doesn't like to give up till she knows it is over. Johnny is the sexy broken man you want to take into your arms and console among other things. He can be a real jerk but you can tell he is hiding behind a wall. He may piss Emma off but anyone else better treat her good.




    This is a quick wonderful book. I loved it and wish it was longer. I wasn't ready to see the last of these characters. This is really a book about a woman opening up and letting the real her shine through and about a man learning he needs to let the past go if he is ever going to heal and have a chance at love. Even when said man doesn't think he wants it. There is also the love scenes and in them you get to see that they may just be perfect for each other. You get both Emma and Johnny's POV and it is a great touch as you can see what they both are going through and feeling. You have the element of danger as everything from a tornado to everyday life of a cop. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a great love story about great characters.
