Book: Along Came Love
Series: Shades of Love #2
Author: Tracey Livesay
Release date: 25 October 2016
Main characters: India Shaw, free spirit who’s landed in some big trouble. Michael Black, a mutual friend and the one to bail her out.
When a silly, impulsive decision lands free-spirited India Shaw behind bars in San Francisco, she has no choice but to call the only person she knows in the unfamiliar city—the very man she abandoned after a steamy two-day fling. The fact that she’s pregnant with his child is something she’d rather not divulge.
Tech executive Michael Black never thought he’d hear from the quirky beauty after she left his bed four months ago, much less be called upon to post bail. He’s got his hands full with a corporate merger that could make or break his career, but his honorable nature—and an overwhelming need to see her again—means he can’t just leave her in jail. And when India reveals the truth about her pregnancy, Mike insists she stay with him until the baby is born.
India doesn’t want to depend on him for anything, but their constant proximity stirs up feelings she can’t ignore. She’s never desired a family before and she knows a future with Mike isn’t possible . . . but then along came love to shake up all her plans.
Why you should read it: I think Tracey is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. I read Love On My Mind and adored it, and to have more books in the series to delve into is even better! I liked India for her free spirit and felt bad for her when it became clear why she was so reluctant to stick in one place for too long, never outstaying her welcome. She’s very much alone in the world and her self-reliance is admirable but extremely lonely. Mike was a good hero – he was very focused and decisive. He didn’t swerve once in his emotions and that made him attractive but also created a delicious amount of conflict between he and India. Their chemistry is off-the-charts hot!
What you may not like: I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the pace was near perfect. There was no repetitive dialogue or shoehorned angst for the sake of it.
Rating: 4/5 for an engaging and romantic story that was hot as all get out!
