Brianna Breeze is a Florida Homicide Detective more interested in her job than relationships. So her best friend drags her along to see the Love Gypsy, a woman with a remarkable record for finding clients their perfect match. Contrary Brianna becomes fascinated by a man who interrupts her interview, instead of following through the correct steps to find her Mr. Right.
Dom is so different Brianna wants to find out more about him, but between her job and all that’s happening around him, this isn’t going to be easy. And that’s without the whole time travel thing.
For such a short book, there’s a lot packed into this little story. There’s all Brianna’s work situations, the people at the restaurant, the Love Gypsy herself and what’s going on at her house, as well as Dom’s life. Apart from a bit of tension and some kisses all the sex is completely offstage, which gives the author more words to work with, but she still does a great job of squeezing heaps of action into a small word count.
A couple of times Dom uses words I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t know, and there’s the occasional dangling modifier, but there’s plenty of good stuff as well. Both main characters are well rounded and intriguing people, and a couple of things I thought were going to be clichés actually worked really well and became nifty plot points.
THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF THIS BOOK. THIS IS AN OBJECTIVE UNBIASED REVIEW
