I had the pleasure of reading this novel before it was released and I have to say I squealed when it hit my inbox. I have loved Eddie from the very beginning. I will say though that he is still second to Chase, because I just see him as mine and he makes me purr. Hey, a girl can dream, but Eddie still rocks my world! *smiles*
Amy is a woman that can be any woman. She is coming out of turbulent relationship that was filled with pain, fear and lies. She has done what most women would do, left her abusive husband for her own sake, but mainly for the safety of her innocent daughter. This momma bear will protect her baby and you better watch out for her claws. She is a new woman and full of surprises.
Eddie needs a break. A nice quiet escape from L.A. to northern Idaho should do it. He is not going cold turkey, though. He plans to quietly assist the local police department on a baffling case, but he doesn't see that as a problem. He is away from his precinct, family and daily troubles, so all is good. He expected a quiet reprieve and got a woman and her daughter that will not leave him, his body or his heart alone.
These two start off very rocky, but find that they enjoy each other’s company. They are both leery from their pasts, but slowly through quiet companionship, sexual attraction and a vibrant little girl, their relationship begins to blossom. It’s too bad that Amy’s ex has found her and he decides that no one will get in his way of getting what he wants…Amy. What the man doesn’t expect or plan for is Eddie Fitzgerald. Eddie is a force not to be reckoned with and he has the support and tools to protect Amy. The ex-husband also has no idea the lengths Amy will go to protect her daughter. It’s a double whammy and I really enjoyed the show.
Forever Hers is the fifth novel in the Fitzgerald Family series. I have yet to be disappointed with any of the stories this series. This novel did seem to have a stronger “danger” presence than the prior book and I have to say I really enjoyed that aspect. There has also always been a touch of mystery encompassing Eddie. It was so nice to get a peek into the man and learn what makes him tick. I also enjoyed that Amy was able to break through his shell, but truthfully Eddie didn't stand a chance once he met Amy’s daughter, Raelynn. She was an entertaining and lovely addition to the story.
Great plot, devious villain, enchanting secondary characters and a cute as a button little girl; how can you go wrong? You can’t! Oh, oh, oh ��" I forgot to mention, these two have amazing, ahem, scenes together, *wink-wink*. Forever Hers, is a well-rounded novel that shouldn't be missed. I suppose you can read it as a standalone, but you really can’t beat the series as a whole. Check them out. This is contemporary romance at its best!
