Topaz Heat- Hallee Bridgeman
Description:The very moment Derrick meets Sarah, he realizes he has a reason to live. Sarah sees only an unshaven tough kid covered with tattoos and shuts down every advance.
Sarah Thomas has no memory of her broken young life leading up to the tragic murder of her mother. Her memory begins the morning she wakes in the home of her loving adoptive parents. She doesn't even know her sisters exist until her 15th year. She learns to love her siblings, but always feels a little out of place in their presence.
A benevolent billionaire offers Derrick DiNunzio a home and an education. Fresh off the streets and rescued from a criminal future, Derrick sheds his old life. He trades his ripped leather jacket for silk suits; dealing drugs for mentoring "at risk" youth; lock picking and back door jobs for the rigors of mountain climbing and hotel management.
Sarah cannot seem to see beyond the past Derrick left behind … until one day she does. When they finally come together, an indictment threatens their future. Now the heat is on. Will Sarah finally set aside her prejudices and open her heart to true love or will the long forgotten past tear them apart forever?
My Thoughts: I still liked this book, though it was not as good as the second. Derrick and Sarah are a cute couple, but Sarah's opinion of him had seemed like an about face. If it had been a little more drawn out, then I might have believed her change more.
Still, I thought they made a great couple and loved to read about their relationship. Because I got the second too books before the first, I shall have to go read it now that it is on my kindle!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
