A Hope Falls Novel, Book 5
By: Melanie Shawn
He is looking towards the future…
Newly appointed Chief of Police Eric Maguire is sexy, single, not ready to mingle. Tired of casual hook-ups and meaningless affairs, Eric is ready for something real. When a mysterious dark-haired beauty moves in next door, Eric knows he’s found exactly what he’s been missing.
She is running from her past…
Lily Sotelo just got the break of a lifetime choreographing for pop star Karina Black’s winter tour. As important as it is that she does an amazing job, it’s equally as important that she remains anonymous. Which shouldn’t be a problem. She’s spent the last ten years on the move, never letting anyone get too close. Until now. Her new neighbor is as persistent as he is sexy and is making Lily want things she knows she can’t have.
Eric is starting to get tired of one-night-stands and is looking to settle down. He has watched his friends slowly find their soul mates and fall in love and he wants that. He just doesn’t know if he will ever find it…..until Lily.
Lily has had many names and moved many times over her life since she was three years old and her mom died. She was placed in WITSEC for a portion of her life and two years ago she was let go. She was asked to come and teach a dance for Amanda and her bridesmaids. While she was there Karina asked her if she would choreograph her winter tour. Lily agreed and moved to Hope Falls. When she was at the wedding she danced with the super hot Eric and had to leave early because of the feelings he made her feel.
When she moved to Hope Falls and Lauren had taken her to show her houses to rent she didn’t like any of the ones she was showing her and was beginning to wonder if she would just have to make do with the apartment above Sue Anne’s. Then Lauren doing what she does best notices what the person doesn’t like and took her to a place that she thought would be perfect. When they pulled up Lily noticed there were other houses near by and the house looked cute. When Lauren told her about the office space out back that could be a studio and the fact that she is living right next door to the newly appointed Chief of Police Lily was sold. Little did she know that the new Police Chief was the very hot Eric.
They spent time getting to know one another. Well, as much as Lily was willing to share, but they did have a physical relationship. She said she was not going to be here after the tour so no need to start a relationship. But, Eric saw it differently. He wanted the physical but he wanted more and he just hoped that over time he could get her to see that she did too.
He was pretty convinced that she was feeling the same until one day when she gets a phone call that brings everything in the past right in the present. Someone had found her and she had to leave.
Eric had to run a background check on Lily for her landlord because he was not happy with what he was finding which was nothing after two years. When Eric’s search turned up the same he called in a favor to a buddy in the FBI. What Eric found turned his blood cold when he realized the night before he pulled over the son of the man Lily helped put away.
Will Lily get out without anyone finding out who she is?
Will Eric get to Lily in time to save her and protect her from the guy after her?
Those are things you will have to read to find out.
Thanks for the review, and this book is well worth the read.
