THERE'S ONLY BEEN YOU - Jamison Series, Book 1 (267 pages)

Lies destroyed their past--will the truth end their chance at a future?

Sara Jamison has no clue where Mike Andrews' been all these years, but she knows where she's been--busy raising their son. Two weeks after he accused her of cheating and disappeared from her life, Sara discovered she was something she never expected to be--an unwed pregnant teenager.

But with the love and support of her annoyingly alpha-male family, she's managed to make a good life for herself and her young son. She even owns her own business, Sara's Bakery, which she's built into a thriving success. Sure, she works too hard and her social life is nonexistent, but for the most part, she's content.

Until the day Detective Mike Andrews walks into her bakery and back into her life...


          Of all the bakeries in town...

Sara blew out a frustrated breath as she faced the troublesome machine. "Couldn't have waited 'til Monday, could you? Rotten appliance."

Ten minutes later, she smiled with triumphant satisfaction as the sweet aroma of vanilla coffee filled the bakery. First thing Monday morning, she'd call the dealer and ask when they could deliver a new machine.

The bell above the door chimed. "See, Amanda. You just have to show this devil who's bos..." The words died on her lips.

Legs braced apart, a disdainful scowl curling his lip, Mike stood just inside the door. Her heart lurched and her breath caught.

This isn't happening, this isn't happening, this isn't happening--

"You sound just like that arrogant brother of yours."

Deep breath, compose yourself. "I'll take that as a compliment." She narrowed her eyes. "Now get the hell out."

"You need to work on your people skills, lady." He strode forward and stopped in front of the display case, looking around in obvious astonishment. "Well, I'll be dipped. When I saw the Sara's Bakery sign, I said to myself, no friggin' way. But morbid curiosity got the better of me. So a bakery, huh? Not much of a surprise, really--"

"What do you want, Mike?"

He turned toward her and she finally got a good look at the side of his face. My God, had Garrett done that? She couldn't help feeling a measure of satisfaction. Oh, who was she kidding? She hoped it hurt like hell.

He must have realized where her gaze rested because he reached up and fingered his jaw. "Don't get too excited, he sucker-punched me." He leaned over and tapped the glass above her jumbo chocolate muffins. "I'll take one of those and a large coffee. Regular, not that flavored crap."

With an angry huff, she stalked over to pour him a cup. Why did he have to look so damn good? Was it too much to ask for a receding hairline and a donut around the middle?

He wore his thick, blue-black hair shorter than he used to, which only made the resemblance between him and Ethan more pronounced. He'd put on a good twenty-five to thirty pounds of solid muscle as the black T-shirt stretched tautly over his chest could attest to. And those eyes--cobalt and incredible--had continued to haunt her over the years.

Ethan's were the exact same color.

Enjoyed this book, first time reading this author. Liked all the characters especially Ethan, the young boy which added humor to the story. I always enjoy reading about families loving and supporting each other no matter what. Romance, humor and a little suspense. For my taste, some of the sexual parts could have been left out, but I just move on to the rest of the book. Will purchase the next book. JudyE

Very good story. Dont let the prudes put you off about the sex scenes. They are no worse than any other romance novel, a little tamer perhaps than some. It was a little rushed to me in how fast they got back together, but the book wasnt that long so i guess the author had to rush thing along. Overall it was a good story.

The storyline was cute and the general concept of the whole scandalous interference was creative so full points for that aspect, but the cop/criminal parts were embarassingly bad. Felt like a young girl got inspired after watching some crime show and decided a dirty cop was the way to go... the police/criminal plot kinda got lost somewhere in there. Had potential to be a good solid romance story, just had way~ too many sprinkles (little side bits that were basically useless), distracted from story itself

I'm not a huge fan of contemporary romance books, I read them sometimes if they catch my intrest..I usually stick with historical romance..I got this book for free and I absolutely fell in love with the characters...this auther did a great job on pulling you into the story...they had great chemistry and passion..Mike and Sarah get a second chance at love, with a little action in this book. Also great love scenes (with detail) wich makes for a good read..

Just ok. Characters not bad, story line alright. A few details that bothered me. At 13 his (Mike) mom died, which was 17 yrs. So he is 30. Then another chapter he left town when he was 19 and was gone 8 yrs, hmm now he is only 27. The days never made sense either or the time. One minute she is fixing breakfast then the next paragraph is bed time. No real suspense, everything was figured out quickly after the 8 year lag.
