"I'd apologize for kissing you, but I'm not all that sorry."Dancer Melanie Brooks had escaped small-town Oklahoma, giving up the country for Broadway's bright lights. Yet after her mother's funeral called her back, her own health issues forced her to stay. Now her tenant, too-hot-for-his-own-good Adam Benson, is giving her a reason to dance again. But has a killer set his sights on her, too?
Adam knows a
little something about fresh starts. As for his beautiful neighbor, he
doesn't see a wheelchair—he sees a woman who understands. But as the
heat grows between them, he can't avoid the feeling that more than her
big-city past haunts her—and that danger has been lurking, waiting to
a woman in a wheelchair there were times I completely understood how
Melanie felt regarding how she thought people saw her and even how she
saw herself. Her views on the future with or without romance also
struck a chord. But there were other times I really wanted to shake her
and yell "snap out of it!". Adam tried his best to get her out of her
funk and thankfully it did happen, it just happened to late for me. Add
in the fact that the plot also involves two murders that have been
dragged along through two previous books and still didn't get solved and
a whole new crazy person in this one all add up to me wanting to stay
far away from the small town of Grady Gulch, Oklahoma.
