In Falling for Her (K2 Team #3) by Sandra Owens, if there's one thing Jamie "Saint" Turner should do above all else, it's to avoid Sugar Darling. She's hazardous to the man he's become since a tragic accident cost him dearly, and there's no way he'll go back to the way things were before. Ever. However, when she accepts a job working with K2, it seems avoiding her isn't going to be easy.
Living a lie can be exhausting, yet Sugar Darling is used to it by now. She wishes she could tell Jamie her deepest, darkest secrets, but she can't. Not if she doesn't want to put his life at risk. Filling the role as temporary receptionist with K2, allows her a little more protection in case her past manages to catch up with her. Yet, the closer they get, it might not be so easy to resist him.
Seeing as Ms. Owens is a new author for me, I didn't know what to expect, but this book was good. From start to finish, the plot was entertaining, yet also very emotionally charged. Sugar has been through so much in her life, and for her to have not allowed her past to get the better of her, proved just how tough she was.
I liked the dialogue, especially the moments where Sugar said things that made absolutely no sense, and Jamie had to correct her. Those times, especially at the beginning made me laugh. But the dialogue did get a little dark, due to Sugar's back story. It made me feel sorry for the heroine, because those that supposedly loved her didn't do anything to protect her.
I liked both characters. Their back stories were really good, but the fact that Sugar had some serious trust issues made me annoyed with her. She joined K2 so she felt safe, yet she wasn't using the resources it offered to help her. That didn't make sense, though I could understand why she chose to do what she did. Because she wanted to protect those she was coming to care for. While with Jamie, I liked how devious he was when he believed Sugar wasn't going to allow him to help, because he wanted her to trust him enough to share her sordid past.
Now for the sex scenes, which were extremely hot, and the last one took them to new heights, so Sugar had absolutely no doubts that she could trust Jamie. No way would he hurt her. It was nice to see that after everything that had happened to them in the past, that they finally had a chance to be happy again. It couldn't have been easy for Sugar, but Jamie is good for her. Just as she's good for him.
Overall, this was a good book, which has me wanting to read the previous ones because I really liked the secondary characters, and would like to learn more about them. I would recommend if you're a big fan of romantic suspense.
