When Cricket Hooper moves to Seattle she only has a couple of goals find a job and an apartment near her friend Chelle, and basically to live a quiet, normal life. However, it isn't long before life becomes far from normal. When a mysterious man helps get her car out of the mud after she makes a wrong turn, she finds herself in his thrall. He wines and dines her, quite literally, and before Cricket can stop it, things are steamy and serious very serious.
Cricket is thrown aback when Jyme turns out to be more than a simple fisherman, but then she isn't telling all of her story either.
This is an author that was new to me so I was excited to read this book!
Cricket is on the run from her past. She moves to Washington to be near her best friend Chelle and that is when she meets Jyme. He falls hard for Cricket almost immediately and although she has strong feelings for him, her past makes her hesitant to let him in her heart.
I found Cricket and her street wise ways to be very likeable. She is full figured and not ashamed of this and she is strong and sassy at times. Jyme is very intense. He loves Cricket and he's not afraid to show her. He is very affectionate and loving when they are together.
I did find the lack of honesty on both their parts to be frustrating at times. There is also an incident where Jyme physically hurts Cricket during a break up and what he did was pretty horrific. When they finally get back together I wish the author had addressed this issue more. I felt like it was swept under the rug and forgiven too easily.
On the whole I enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for this couple!
