TALK TO ME
Author: Stephanie Reid
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Protector Series, Book #1
~ SYNOPSIS ~Emily Simon is a good listener. Maybe a little too good. As a professional counselor who's been unintentionally clocking hours after work with her advice-seeking friends, Emily decides it's time to hang up the counselor hat when she's out of the office and make something happen in her own life. She has just two rules: No men with emotional baggage and no risk takers.
Bryan “Mac” McAvoy is tormented by the death of a teenage boy, shot during a robbery gone wrong, and fellow police officer, Sean Simon, is convinced his sister Emily is just the person to help Mac get back his edge.
With his dangerous vocation and giant suitcase full of guilt, Emily vows to steer clear and guard her heart. But when she receives a death threat from a deranged client, she finds that Mac may be the only man who can guard her life.

~ Marlene's Review ~
I was fortunate enough to be gifted an ARC copy of this book a while back from the author. I love to discover new authors, so I couldn't wait to dig in.
Well, once I started reading, I couldn't stop! I had to keep reminding myself that this was a debut release. It certainly didn't read as one.
-The writing was top notch. Smooth flow, easy to follow, and attention to detail was impeccable.
-The characters were likeable and easy to relate to. I felt the connection between the characters immediately and that made it easy to become connected to them as well.
-The plot line holds your attention with some mystery, suspense, and a splash of humor. I was thrown for a short loop a couple of times when I thought I knew what was going to happen, then I was reminded that not all books are predictable.
I highly recommend this book to everyone! A sweet romance of two guarded hearts finding themselves and finding each other. Throw in a fairytale HEA....How could you NOT read it?
*This book is listed as part of a series (Protector Series), but this book is a standalone with no cliffy.
