Almost Broken Up ~ Review

Almost BROKEN UP  ~ Almost Bad Boys #2 by A. O. Peart
Blurb ~

How far would you go to protect the one you love?

The terrors of Colin’s past are revealed and accepted by Natalie. Her doubts about letting him into her life are finally disbanded and replaced by a sense of security and commitment. But Natalie doesn’t know that Colin’s past hides more dark secrets unknown even to him.

When a delusional psychopath threatens Colin’s life, things quickly become complicated. Natalie’s stubborn character and desire to kick ass won’t let her step aside and allow the authorities to handle the danger. She gets herself tangled up with street hoodlums, befriends a Russian mobster’s high-maintenance girlfriend, and becomes expert at picking locks and hiding evidence.

**Warning: contains sexual situations, profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and the appletini is still the drink of choice.
May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prigs and sourpusses who get easily affronted**

My Review:
5 Stars
"How far would you go to protect the one you love?" ... that line had my attention from the start. You know that moment when you are screaming in your head "Are you really about to do that? WHAT are you thinking!?!" Yep...that just happened! Then I realized every suspenseful movie or book I have ever enjoyed has had such moments. I always love a good adventure, & this was definitely an adventure! Suspense, mystery, comedy, steamy scenes, & an intriguing story line made for a wonderful night's read. I mean how could the love of your life being threatened, getting up close & personal with The Mafia, & having to make split second decisions go wrong? After opening up this book I did not put it down until those final words... The End.

Almost MATCHED ~ Almost Bad Boys #1 by A. O. Peart
Published: November 8, 2013 
Blurb ~
Would you take another shot at love? Or just settle on a friend with benefits?
Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general. So when Colin Hampton crosses her path, she’s cautious. Her heart (and some other body parts!) nudges her to go for it, while her head wants her to run for the hills.
Colin is one of those gorgeous guys who attract women, no matter the age or marital status. With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him—maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse.
Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did?
Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself?
Or will they settle somewhere in the middle—establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love?
This contemporary romantic comedy blends humor, sensuality, and angst, with zany characters and witty dialogue.
***Warning: contains sexual situations (some quite vivid!), profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and there is a lot of appletini and beer drinking.
May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prudes and killjoys with no sense of humor***
