Quinn Rafferty is working as a bounty hunter for a private detective agency in St. Louis when a new neighbor catches his eye. He's drawn to her-but he has his own soul to mend before he can worry about anyone else.
Sarah McElyea is on the run, but not for the usual reasons a woman goes on the lam. She has a plan for her future. And as much as she finds herself attracted to her gruff, tough neighbor, she can't risk telling him the secrets she's hiding.
But Quinn must get closer to Sarah when she turns out to be the target of his new missing persons case, and both Quinn and Sarah will have to expose their true feelings-as well as their fragile hearts-if their love is to survive.
In My Own Words:
Quinn keeps to himself, rarely getting involved in business that isn't his or he isn't paid to do. When a new neighbor pops in to his life, he feels an intrigue that pulls him to talk to her. It is apparent, almost immediately that Sarah is hiding something, but Quinn isn't sure what or if he cares to know. When a new missing persons case catches his boss' attention, Quinn has no choice but to find out what has him so jazzed. When he realizes the woman in the missing persons report is Sarah, he heads home to get some answers. What he doesn't expect is to see Sarah already cleared out and moving on. When they start to explore their feelings, Quinn knows that he made a mistake jumping to conclusions, but when he tries to right his wrong...is it to late?
I loved the first in this series, Fragile, and couldn't wait to read Broken. I wasn't disappointed. Quinn is a broken soul in need of repair and love. What he finds is a woman in the same situation for a bunch of different reasons than his own. The twists and turns in this story were great, and kept you guessing. The relationship with Sarah and Quinn was sweet and explosive at times. I found myself wanting to skip ahead, not because the writing wasn't good, but because I really wanted to know what was going to happen next.
