Pull The Trigger, by Melissa Ecker: Review

Rebecca Harper is making a clean break. The ink is dry on her divorce decree and her dream job has finally come to fruition. In two weeks, she will be on a plane to St. Louis. All her plans are set until sexy cop Justin Cain, her former high school crush, asks her to dinner.

 This one night out instigates a roller coaster ride of hot sex, serious soul searching and heart breaking decisions.  Will Rebecca leave Justin behind to follow her dreams?  Or will his love be enough to keep her in Memory Grove?

I read this novella in one sitting. The sex is steaming hot, delving into Rebecca letting go of some of the inhibitions and bad experiences she has had in her previous marriage. There is a little bondage (with the cops handcuffs--handy!) and some anal, but all of it is done in a gentle and loving way.

I enjoyed how Rebecca wasn't perfect. She has some body issues (though you wouldn't think it from the sex this girl has) and isn't adverse to drowning her sorrows in a bottle of wine and a take-out pizza. In short, she is like the majority of us, which makes her a very likeable person! Justin is sweet and sexy, with a hot body and the authority of being a cop. He also isn't afraid of standing up for her and punching out her ex-husband when the time comes!

I found the final scene at the airport to be wonderful. It totally captured all the emotions of being parted from someone you love, and it even brought a tear to my eye.

It is a thoroughly enjoyable read, especially if you love erotic romance. The best thing is that Pull The Trigger is only the first part of a three book series, so there is plenty more to come. I'm looking forward to reading the rest.

You can buy Pull The Trigger at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
