Sum It Up!  This quick sexy read was both fun and heartwarming. 

A sexy cop with a broken heart is about to be taught a lesson.
Hope Marlow is a twenty-two-year-old seasoned vet when it comes to steamy one-night stands. Hope has had a hard life. From the wrong side of the tracks and abandoned by her mother, she finds herself trying to raise her little sister on a salary that barely pays the bills each month. She's tough, jaded, but when she's pulled over one sweltering summer afternoon for not using her turn signal, she meets her match in a sexually inexperienced cop twice her age.

The day Jack Malone stopped Hope is one he can't forget. It's more than the way she looked in the miniskirt and hot pink tank top, it's her confidence that keeps coming back to haunt him. But Jack is still reeling from his wife's death a year ago, and Hope represents things he thinks he can't have with a woman—passion and a new beginning. Plus, there's the fact that she's practically half his age.

Hope sees things differently. The age difference doesn't bother her, but while Jack craves an emotional connection, Hope has no interest in that. She's an expert at pushing her emotions aside, and she knows that if Jack would let her, she could teach him how fulfilling lust alone can be. With that in mind, she sets out to seduce the sexy cop.
It's only during their first night of passion that they both discover how much they've been missing. 

This quick sexy read was both fun and heartwarming. I really enjoyed Hope's internal dialogue and her inner battle to be good enough. These warring factions did nothing to slow her down from pursuing Jack. Instinct knows when it’s found a good thing...and Jack Marlow is a really, really good thing.

While Jack is still in morning over his late wife, he struggles with his attraction to Hope. Yes, she is younger, but the better struggle for me was his insecurity about his performance. Having only been with his wife his whole life, he feared that his lack of experience and skill would put Hope off. But, it had just the opposite effect. I enjoyed following the youngin' teaching the more mature man. It was such a sweet and gentle lesson, for both of them.

This is a very touching love story, that I found myself routing for the lonesome to end for both Hope and Jack...and for them to find their HEA. Enjoy!
