As the only witness to a crime, she falls into a deadly situation and is in need of police protection. Dane Scott has sworn off women. Until a fireball named Aimee enters his world. Telling himself they’re just friends, he vows to protect her. Can his heart follow suit or will she change his mind about love for good?
Summer is upon us and author Lara Van Hulzen has written the perfect beach or poolside read with her latest novel – Get To Me. The 2nd book in her Men of Honor series spotlights a kindling romance between Aimee Jensenn and Detective Dane Scott. Christian fiction fans will not want to miss this fast-paced blend of romance and suspense.
For Aimee and Dane, a dance they shared at Tess and Ben’s wedding has set their senses on high alert. The intensity of their attraction to one another leaves them feeling vulnerable and exposed. Dane attempts to veil his feelings behind the call of duty, a cop-like protectiveness, but he’s not fooling anyone… Especially not himself. The chemistry between these two characters drew me in. As the story progressed, the author kept me engaged by revealing each character’s conflicted thoughts about love, trust, and their future together.
The evolving relationship intensifies after Aimee accidentally witnesses a drug lord stab a man. When it becomes clear Aimee’s life is in danger, Dane along with Aimee’s roommate Torie, develop a plan to hide her away until the killer can be apprehended. Here the scene shifts from the San Diego shoreline to the beautiful mountains of Tahoe – the location of Dane’s family ranch. Removed from city life and the demands of work, readers catch a glimpse of Dane’s country/cowbow roots. We also meet his family (Ellie was a favorite character of mine) and witness Dane confront his past. Only then is he free to explore a future with Aimee.
Get To Me is independently published and available for purchase at amazon.com.
