Neva Mathews
It was a dark and stormy night. Not really. More like a bright and muggy afternoon in a grocery store parking lot that I met him. He was larger than the sun at that moment. It could be because he stood at six glorious feet and five extra inches. Or it could be because I'd just fallen to earth after slamming into him, allowing his big body to eclipse the sun. I didn't know it at the time, but this beast of a man would take me out of my peaceful life and catapult me onto the roller coaster of a lifetime. I never saw myself falling in love again, having lost my childhood love five years before. I mean, I come as a package deal with my best friend Shelly and my handsome son Drew. But meeting Grant softened my heart and made me fall for him. Too bad he didn't come with a warning label.

Jason Grant
I had one mission. There's a reason I'm one of Miami's best detectives; I always accomplish my mission. But then I met her, and my world suddenly shifted on its axis. I watched her from afar for several months. Watching and waiting for the right moment to make my move. Yet being around her has changed things. My blackened heart is beating again, craving this woman, making me want for things I'd given up on long ago. She reminds me of a porcelain doll. The only difference is the vivid colorful tattoos along each arm. She's so small. If I'm not careful, I may be the reason she breaks.

I would have guessed that it was a romantic suspense. Neva was a great character but she was in danger. The beginning was present then it seemed to go back to explain how she came to be in that situation. I was surprised, stumped, thrilled, enthralled, curious, happy, worried, excited, and above all hooked. All of the characters were great but sometimes I felt like they were describing the story through their thoughts instead of us watching them go through it. I hope you can understand what I mean because I don't know how else to explain it. There were a little over 200 pages and the pace was pretty fast. I really enjoyed it and you will too if you like some suspense and danger with your romance. I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion.

I was first attracted to this book by the cover. I liked the simplicity of the couple holding hands, with the out of focus background. It really let's your imagination place the couple wherever you want them to be: getting ready to walk down the aisle... or maybe walking on a street... through a park... or just into the future... Then the blurb hooked me; a tattooed single mother and the police detective, both fighting their attraction, neither really wanting to want the other. That usually means lots of nice tension and sparks flying as they fight those desires.  This is labeled as contemporary romance, but could easily be called romantic suspense.  After all, someone is after Neva and Jason is the detective on the case and becomes her protector . Plus the book starts out with Neva in danger, and then backtracks to fill in how we got to that point. It gives an edge to the story, since I then spent my time looking for how we get to that moment of danger.  The relationships between the characters had a very authentic feel to them, from Neva and her son, to their circle of friends. Neva and Jason contrast very nicely against each other and while we learn much about Neva's history, Jason remains an enigma to both us and Neva.  When the  big reveal finally happened, I can honestly say, I never saw it coming. And I do like a book that can surprise me. My biggest complaint about the book was that I think the character's, Neva in particular, spent too much time in her head. There was more telling going on than showing.  But in spite of that, I was still invested and eager to find out who the big baddie was. Overall, I enjoyed the book and would read Neva's best friend Shellie's story if it comes available.  I am giving the book 3 stars. Thanks to the author for the opportunity to read and review the book.

Grant Me is an intriguing read. As soon as I started reading, I had to continue. The characters are interesting – especially Neva. I loved her spark, her sense of humor, her view on life. Both characters are vivid and lively, realistic and easy to relate to. Jason Grant is your typical alpha hero, but he’s a three-dimensional, engaging character. The plot was fun, and fast-paced so I had to keep on turning the pages. The writing style was engaging, and I enjoyed it. This is a fluent, suspenseful read. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
