Sting by Jennifer Ryder Jennifer Ryder has a great thing going on in this book. I love it. I didn’t read the other 3 books but I did not feel lost at all. I could see clearly the people and places. Jennifer’s writing is very good. I love how we are drawn in to the story and held until the last word. I am from the US so some of the AU terms take a moment or two to translate but I find them adorable. I will be purchasing 1 thru 3. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
4.5 star The story has laughs, betrayal, pain, healing love, and heartbreak. This is Willow and Ryan’s story. Ryan is working undercover. Willow owns the local coffee shop. The attraction is instant. Willow can’t stand anything to do with lies and drugs. Ryan depends on his lies to keep himself and his partner safe. What happens when part of Willows past intermixes with Ryan’s case? Can she forgive Ryan the lies he told? Can she understand why he had to lie? What happens when all you want is to have the person you miss the most back in your arms? When even the lies don’t matter because all the matters in being with each other and loving each other? Willow is sweet but strong. Ryan is gentle and a solid protector. They worked so well together. I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a good read. I recommend this book and this series.
The story of Willow and Ryan. Willow is basically in witness protection, in Australia. Ryan is a cop, undercover, also in the same town in Australia. When he spots a hot barista at the coffee shop, he's intrigued. Turns out, he could get addicted to this coffee, and the barista. Ryan is hot, sweet, protective….did I mention HOT? Willow has more than her fair share of hang-ups, dealing with past hurt and disappointments. Yet he is patient and repeatedly proves that not all men are out to hurt her. I enjoyed the secondary characters as well, Mick and Gabby. Though this is the first I have read from this author, and from this series, I will definitely be checking the other books out!
