I struggled more with this book than the first. The heroine made some questionable decisions that really took me out of the story.

When her grandmother died, April inherited a crappy trailer and a mountain of debt. She worked hard to pay her grandmother’s debts, but just when she thought she could see the light at the end of the tunnel a loan shark showed up out of nowhere to call in yet another one.He isn’t the kind of guy you say no to, so she ends up stealing money from her job (the heroine of book 1 owns the candy shop where April works), then borrowing from another loan shark to pay it back.

She meets Reno, the brother of her boss’s boyfriend, and he becomes really protective of her. She’s surprised at how good it feels to have someone take care of her and be there for her. But when another of Reno’s brothers discovers that she stole money from her work (even though she put it back), she knows she can’t expect Reno to stay with her.

I wanted to like April, but her thoughts and feelings after being caught stealing from her company didn’t really work for me. She felt bad for doing it, but aside from a thought or two about how she shouldn’t have done that, she just kind of brushes it aside. Since the book is written in first-person from her point-of-view, I expected to see her thoughts be filled with guilt and remorse. Not that I wanted the entire book to be nothing but her being eaten with guilt, but I don’t think we really saw any remorse for what she did.

I could have gotten past that, but from there things just go downhill. She constantly makes questionable decisions that put her in danger. She refuses to accept help even when it’s freely offered. She constantly pushes Reno away. Every time I’d start to like her or feel sorry for her, she’d make another dumb choice that would kill all sympathetic feelings.

I liked the family ties we felt in the first book, and I thought that was missing here. The romance was well built in the first half of the book, but I thought it fizzled some in the latter half.

I plan to continue on with the series, but I hope the next book is better than this one.

2.25 out of 5
