Precious Embrace

Links: Goodreads Amazon 

Precious Embrace (Embrace, #2)
 4 of 5 stars false
A second divorce and a new baby wasn’t the vision Alison Hayes had for her future. Now a single mother with two young boys, she wants to focus on her kids and what’s left of her stagnate career.
When Detective Johnny Rhay Bennett breezes into her life with his country-boy accent, she wants to run. She doesn’t need another man in her life, or another reason to make people talk. But when her worst nightmare becomes a reality, Johnny is the only person who can pull Ali out of her despair, forcing her to stay strong and not give up hope of finding her missing child.


Who falls in love after a one-night stand? Johnny Rhay doesn’t believe it’s possible until it happens to him. With Nashville in his rear-view mirror, he’s determined to convince Alison she loves him too, even if it means moving to the West Coast.
Ali’s not easy, and she’s living on just this side of bitter after her divorce, but Johnny doesn’t care. He’s up for the challenge. At least, he believes he’s up for it until baby Micah is stolen right out from under his nose. Now Johnny has to keep it together and get that sweet little boy home safe before his dreams of having a family vanish too. 


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Ali has made her share of mistakes. Two failed marriages and two beautiful little boys into life she has decided that it’s time to focus on her family and give up hoping for the fairy tale romance and happily ever after. Johnny can’t get Ali out of his mind since they spend an amazing time together at a friend’s wedding in Hawaii. When the opportunity comes for him to transfer to a detective position in California, he packs his bags and is on Ali’s doorstep. It turns out he couldn’t have come at a better time.
I read this book as a standalone. I do recommend reading book 1 because the very beginning you felt a little like you were starting a few chapters in, but it wasn’t anything you couldn’t figure out over time and didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the story. However, I will be going back because I can’t wait to find out more about the other characters! Ali & Johnny are great characters and very relatable. The writing was smooth, causing you to get lost in the story. The suspense wasn’t something I expect and was a pleasant surprise. One of the best romantic suspense I’ve read in a while.
