Police officer Kel O’Donnell is recovering from a work-related injury in San Francisco when he meets the woman of his dreams, who happens to be selling tacos out of a food truck. Ivy Snow is smitten with her friend’s mysterious cousin but knows better than to trust anyone after a childhood spent outrunning the law with her no-good, criminal brother. When there’s a break-in at Ivy’s apartment and then at the food truck, Kel jumps into protector mode, leaving Ivy reluctant to accept the help. Both see a side to the other that no one else sees, and they begin to forge a bond based on this unique understanding—not to mention the red-hot passion that promises to last longer than the holidays.
VERDICT Bringing readers a tough outsider heroine and a hero whose wounds run deep, Shalvis (Playing for Keeps) knows how to write characters readers adore and keep them coming back for more.
