Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars
Jane Peden is a new-to-me author, and I’m happy I read this great story! I love her writing style and I found myself unable to put this book down. This story was well-paced and a very entertaining read.
Ritchie Perez is a successful attorney, and one of the partners of his law firm. Thanks to hard work and talent, he has become wealthy, but he never forgets where he came from and intends to give back to the community. In his spare time, he volunteers at his parish’s night soup kitchen to feed the homeless. His volunteer work is also the perfect opportunity to spend time with another volunteer, Maria Martinez. Her feisty and generous personality fascinates him. She has a lot on her plate, though. After her parents’ death, she was forced to drop out of college and work two jobs to pay the bills and raise her younger brother, Joey, on her own. It’s no mean feat, her brother is hanging around with the wrong crowd and she is worried about him. She is reluctant to accept Ritchie’s help, but she won’t have any other choice when Joey really gets into trouble.
Ritchie has had an impact on her life in the past. Several years before, Ritchie was an ambitious assistant state attorney prosecuting drug-related crimes. And he showed no mercy to Maria’s older brother, sending him to prison. Maria has to come to terms with her conflicting feelings towards Ritchie. She is attracted to him but she can’t forget he played a decisive part in her brother’s conviction. He is controlling, bossy and can be ruthless but he is also generous, kind and protective of her. He encourages her to follow her dreams, to find her own path. Can she put the past to rest and give their story a chance?
I loved everything about this heartfelt, uplifting and beautifully written story, with some angst and all the feels! Ritchie and Maria are great, complex and multi-layered characters, they give this book its irresistible emotional pull. Although it can be read as a standalone, I’ll definitely read Ritchie’s partners stories!
Thanks for visiting and happy reading!

About Jane Peden:
Jane Peden is a Florida trial attorney who writes sexy contemporary category romances set in the exciting South Florida city of Miami, where millionaire lawyers live extravagant lifestyles and find love when they least expect it. When Jane isn’t in court, you can find her at the beach with her laptop, dreaming up stories about successful, confident men who know what they want and how to get it, and smart, sexy women who demand love on their own terms. Jane’s books promise sizzling chemistry in the face of insurmountable obstacles. And just when things couldn’t get any worse, an emotional payoff that makes it all worthwhile.
Jane grew up in the mountains of western Pennsylvania, but decided early on that the only thing better than escaping the cold for a two-week vacation at the beach was to live there all year around, so she traded her snow boots for a jet ski and has never looked back. Jane lives on the sunny Gulf Coast of Florida with her husband, two kids, two dogs, and a fish.
