Best friends Kai, Sawyer, and Axl worked hard to make Caswallawn Security the booming success that it is. As for love, marriage, and commitment, those are way down on their priority list...
Kai Manning is unhappy that Caswallawn is making Mercy, Virginia, its permanent headquarters—he doesn’t understand this quaint, crazy town, and he doesn’t want to settle down, period. A rough childhood made him fiercely independent, and he’s determined to rely on nothing and no one. So the moment he lays eyes on Flick, he knows he’s in trouble...
Local baker Felicity “Flick” Sturgiss is not looking for a man. She’s done giving her all to relationships that give nothing back. But Kai is undeniably hot. He may look like bad news, but he’s not going to be in town for long, and she’s dealing with a lot right now—she deserves to have some fun.
When a family emergency calls Sawyer away, Kai must remain in Mercy to hold down the fort. Now, Kai and Flick’s plan for a quick fling falls to the wayside (just like their torn-off clothing), leaving them wondering if they can keep their hands—and their hearts—to themselves..
I wish there had been more emotional exploration but there was a decent amount of sexploration even if just a tad too much if debate. However you can't really help but want to know how it turns out with who gets chosen and what not.
Kai can be a contradicting character but also likable enough to win you over, Felicity could be a little wish washy though.
I enjoyed the interaction between Kai and Felicity for the most part just not enough to really fall in love with the story.
I would like to say though that I like the way the book is written, I like the authors tone and her voice so I will be checking out more books by Joss in the future.
I had a hard time deciding on three or four stars but because this is a new and first installment to a series I'm waiting for future installments to really grab me.
