Motorcycle deputy, Sadie Lazar is no damsel in distress. After all, the only man capable of getting a job done is a woMAN. She loves her life of independence. But when she is on scene at a mass car pile-up and finds a missing child, a pair of piercing blue eyes changes her world.
Widower, single-dad, Dr. Ryan Montgomery is in over his head. It's been four years since his wife's death and his former mother-in-law refuses to let him move on. When he finally starts dating, an accident makes him realize that dating a cop could put him right back in a world of grief and loss--a place he barely survived the first time around.
Now, two people who are used to saving others are forced to save themselves: one from a lonely future and one from a broken past.

By SparklesI really loved the premise of a badass chick, a motorcycle deputy no less, and a single dad doctor finding their HEA. However, Book’em Sadie just didn’t deliver for me.

I liked both Ryan and Sadie well enough, and they did have good chemistry together. Callie, Ryan’s 6-year-old daughter had lots of airtime, and while I usually love this in my books, I felt that everything was moving way too fast in this case. The fact that she kept running away and all the drama her maternal relatives brought to the story made me feel like she was more of a plot device than an actual character. 

The fact that I snagged Book’em Sadie for free helped me get to the end and not want to hit my head on my kindle. I did have some fun, but most of the time I found myself rolling my eyes at Ryan’s lack of alphaness regarding his dead wife’s family who were totally horrendous and did not have his daughter’s best interest at heart.

The conclusion of the story was way too perfect and easy given all the drama involved. By the end, I felt completely meh about the whole book. Summing up, I sort of liked some aspects of the story but overall; it missed a lot of spots. It simply wasn’t the book for me.

Rating: 2.5 “Meh” Stars


PS: Anyone else confused by the different title on the cover? Make up your mind woman and pick one to put everywhere  -_-‘
