Detective Mike Sterling walked away from his dream job telling himself it was to honor the promise he’d made his mother, while lying in a Chicago emergency room. A year later, he’s still fighting the demons that followed him back to his boyhood town.
Taryn Watts is an award-winning designer, going from project to project, living from a suitcase. Her plan for Renlend Kansas was the same as always. Go in, get the job done and get out, just the way she likes it. Growing up as a cop’s daughter, her every move was controlled. When she escaped to college she vowed to never fall in love with a cop –ever. Until she found herself sitting across from the ruggedly handsome stranger. Looking into Mike’s ice blue eyes they pulled her, called to her, but there was a haunting in them she knew too well.
Mike is drawn to Taryn, her passion for her work and her stunning beauty left him breathless, but what surprises him most is the peace he feels when he’s near her. Maybe it’s because Taryn is a temporary addition to his town and his secret is safe, or maybe it’s because she makes him feel safe. Mike knows he can’t keep up this charade and when Taryn moves to Renlend for an extended stay he can’t hide the truth any longer.
Can Taryn forget he’s a cop and give him her heart, or will his demons drive them apart?
I was given a copy of Mike's Way Back-Finding Perfect by Amy Gregory in exchange of an honest review. I really enjoyed this. Mike a single guy is at his friends Tavern when he saw this beautiful woman who he was later introduce to as Taryn. "Watching" Mike getting beat in his own game is really funny. Mike being jealous over someone Taryn was talking to and he just met her was really funny when he found out that it was Andrew someone Taryn worked with. Mike hadn't thought of his ex wife in so long it was hard to remember he was married. When he looked at Taryn he pushed his thoughts of his ex wife out of this mind like the theme song of "The Wizard of Oz" That part was funny to me cause it reminded me of a lady that used to ride her bike and looked just like the lady in the Wizard of Oz. When Mike took Tayrn on a tour through the town the author Amy Gregory made it all sound like HEAVEN. To Taryn it was Paradise. I also like how Amy puts in "Don't judge a book by its cover. In the bookstore of all places." I laughed at that. I really enjoyed this book. Kept me interested from beginning to the end.
About the Author
When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs. The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”. She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions. Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.
She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years. And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well. At least she’s grateful most of the time! Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. … The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!Tour-Wide Giveaway
