Scott got into a fair amount of trouble as a teenager, but now he’s grown and runs a respectable auto body shop. Unfortunately, the sheriff of his town has it out for him, no matter how much he’s cleaned up his act. When he’s accused of a crime he didn’t commit, no one is more surprised than he is when straitlaced Michaela Miller provides him with an alibi. An alibi that’s a complete lie. Determined to find out why his sexy next-door neighbor helped him out, he puts himself in danger of losing something he’d never considered. His heart.
Wonderfully fast, but full of sensuous charm, Tempting Alibi is a fiery read perfect for a steamy summer night. There is so much to love – normally confident Scott all twisted in knots just talking to Michaela, their out of this world chemistry (and hot sex), and the way they work together so well.
Scott has some scars from his childhood and a little misunderstanding creates a bump in the road to their HEA, but Stuart doesn’t make a big deal out of it. The resolution doesn’t get dragged out unnecessarily and they quickly figure everything out. It’s touching and sweet and then it gets oh-so-spicy.
I’ve been having some good luck with novella length stories lately and Tempting Alibi is no different. The characters are engaging and their story is captivating. And when I hit the end, I didn’t have any regrets … except that it was over.
