I've been a big fan of J. S. Scott's books for a good while now and I was super excited to read this. This is the first full length novel in her new series The Sinclair's, a spin-off series from her awesome Billionaire's Obsession series.
Dante Sinclair is a homicide cop. Grieved and embittered by recent events that left his best friend and partner dead, and Dante himself injured. He has come to Amesport to lick his wounds, both physical and mental and is not handling it well.
Sarah Baxter is a doctor. A former prodigal child, she moved to Amesport to start a quieter, less complicated life. She is employed to oversee Dante's recovery as his new doctor. Dante is not very impressed with this idea but it's complicated so much more by their almost instant attraction to each other.
I loved Dante and Sarah's characters and their chemistry is sizzling hot. Dante is gruff and growly, consumed with guilt over his friends death, a typical alpha male, but fiercely protective and sweet underneath. Sarah is a sweetheart. She is strong but kind and even though she's super talented she still has doubts and fears that I could connect with.
The secondary characters were also very good and I loved catching up with Dante's brother Grady and his wife Emily who we first met in the novella The Billionaire's Christmas.
The plot is great. It pulls you in immediately and has lots of passion and romance but also some action and suspense as well. I really enjoy J. S. Scott's writing style and storytelling skill. Her dialogue is always great and enhances the story. The interaction between Dante and Sarah was sexy and fun.
I enjoyed this a lot. Even though it's part of a series it can be read as a standalone. I would recommend to readers who love a good romance that will leave you with a smile on your face.
5 Stars from me. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series :)
