She's on the run . . .

Jane Beaumont currently has in her possession: a cat, a hundred grand in cash, and a pistol. She's on her way home to Bay City, Oregon-and away from the nightmare of her violent ex-boyfriend. She'll lay low at Beaumont Body Shop, a car detailer that runs a private investigation agency in the back. The only wrench in her plan is Kage Archer: sexy, strong, and intent on protecting Jane at all costs. She's wanted Kage forever, but putting him in harm's way is not a risk she's willing to take.

He's not going anywhere

Kage is no stranger to the dark side of life, but he's always walked on the right side of the law. Yet when Jane expressed her interest in him years ago, he pushed her away for her own good. Now, after learning of all she's endured, Kage can't leave her side-or hide his need for her. When a frightening situation turns dire, can Kage convince Jane that the safest place to be is in his arms?

Loved the cover, which is really a pulling factor - but the truth would be that I've picked up this book because it was an ARC read :)

First things first... this book reminded me so much of a KA novel. Not that I think author Debra Kayn was going out and copying her... I knew I wasn't reading a KA. But the characters, plot, drama, scenarios, hot-headed bad-ass boys.... that's what made me think of KA.

It was awesome and honestly if this is how all Debra Kayn's book turn out to be, I'll be adding her to my favorite author's list very soon.

Archer gives us everything we've come to love about what KA offers us in all her books. I don't want to be comparing the two, but I want to give you a perspective of what you can expect. Especially if you are a KA fan, you will definitely love this book.

The only difference? It's written in 3rd person and you know, I must be honest... 3rd person has never been my thing at all... but for some reason the last three books I've read (and without planning it like that) have all three been 3rd person and it's kind of growing on me. Well at least the style in which the ones I've read over the last two days are growing on me.

Usually I find myself detached from the characters... but I'm thinking that the person who commissions books for Grand Central Publishing's Forever Titles, really has a perfect eye for picking out awesome books. Honestly... the last three titles I've read have all 3 been from the Forever Titles by GCP and they have been awesome!

So... anyway, back to Archer.

Archer is a PI, who is kind of walking a fine line between being the good guy he really wants to be and the bad guy his destined to be because of what's in his blood and how everyone else in his family have turned out.

Archer's known Jane for years. He's her brothers best friend and they grew up together and what not. Jane's loved Archer for many years and the long and the short of the matter is, is that Archer or Kage (His first name) has always been in love with Jane.

But back then he didn't want to mess things up with her until he knew for sure he was able to provide her with the best man he can be... so years later, she comes back into his life and he's determined to keep her by his side.

So Jane's comes out or rather runs away from an abusive relationship. Now... because this is a sensitive topic, I'm going to pause and tell you that there is only one scene.... right at the start of the book which contains actual said abuse. Now... I didn't find it offensive or whatnot because A) Basically she got held at gunpoint and was knocked around... now this wasn't much different than... let's say in another novel where a woman is kidnapped and knocked around. B) BECAUSE even though abuse is horrid and a sensitive topic... lady's this is fictional abuse. I understand when some readers get upset, but really, to not read this book because of 'abuse' is kind of silly. So yeah... if you see a review that mentioned 'abuse' and all the complaints you see when some review books which contain the 'A' word... it's not hectic. Most of the info is thoughts, explanations. And again... it's fictional. Not a national geographic article.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. I really felt connected to the characters... felt the connection between Kage & Jane.... felt the fear, the pain, the desire... everything was really, really well... done :)

There isn't much to add. Except maybe that it's not as erotic as the cover suggests lol... So if you are looking for an adult romance, then this is a good read. It's not erotic and yip, that made me a little sad to discover. I looked at the cover and thought holy crap - that's hot.... and it was... It just wasn't as descriptive and as sexual as an erotic romances. It's a fairly decent Adult Romance with mildly description sexual content... but nothing you wouldn't want your grandmother to read :)
