Series:  n/a

Author:  Savannah Stuart

Genre:  Romance

Blurb:   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.

Thoughts:  A major downside to this tale is that it is novella length – every for a novella I felt that it was just really, really short.  I love Savannah Stuart, and even her short stories and/or novellas I still find satisfying.  However, with this one I just felt there was a lot left out.  For example, we have the town sheriff harassing the main character, Scott, however it didn’t really wind up being a big deal to the whole overall storyline.  The characters are kinda crushing on each other, wind up together, and we have a lot of sexy scenes, but it just didn’t feel as much in depth as I would like – or even finished really.  I love Savannah Stuart, but this is probably my least favorite title so far.  The potential is really there, though!  It just didn’t quite feel done.  For a few moments, I almost felt like it was wandering toward Lauren Dane’s style of writing as well.  Good, but not the best from one of my favs!
