Synopsis: It’s a typical boring night at work when I first meet the mysterious and sexy Colt Lancaster. Minutes after he leaves, I’m robbed at gunpoint by a masked man.
I suspect that the two events are related.
No matter how hard Colt tries to convince me that it was all just a coincidence, my gut tells me otherwise. However, the more I get to know him the more I want to believe him. Just when he’s about to win me over, a condemning secret from his past is exposed.
Then again, everyone deserves a second chance. Don’t they?
Can you believe that this is my first book by Amber Garza? Yeah, I can't either! I wasn't sure if this book was in anyway related to this author's other book, Tripping Me Up, and in actual fact it is! The main characters from that book were in this book! As I haven't read Tripping Me Up then I wasn't 100% sure until I read the synopsis of it! I will definitely be checking that book out as well! I loved this book! Absolutely loved it! I was intrigued by the synopsis as I haven't really read one like it before! Overall, this book was cute and a bit mysterious! It sort of makes you think, but at the back of your mind you sort of know the answer! The plot of this book was amazing! It was perfectly paced and kept me so interested! I loved that the plot wasn't full on romantic and didn't have any sex in it! This author is probably the second author who's books I've read that doesn't have any sex in them! It's different, but I love that books without sex in them tend to focus more on the actual plot and relationships! Unless the plot focuses a lot on sex lol! Anyway, this book's plot was awesome and I really enjoyed it! The characters were also amazing! Paige was the main female character in this book and I loved her! She was a quirky person with a good heart! I loved how she stood out and was a leader, not a follower! I wasn't sure if I was going to like Paige's attitude at the beginning of this book as her attitude sounded quite sarcastic, but I soon completely adored her! I loved how she handled situations she was placed in and her relationship with her love interest was so darn cute and seriously hot! And that was without the sex! Colt was the main male character in this book and he was such a sweetheart! I completely adored him! My heart went out to Colt in this book as he had such a tough childhood and he found it hard to make promises because he didn't think he could keep them! Colt came so far in this book though! I loved his progress because he deserved to be happy and to live his life to the fullest! I loved that this book was written from both Paige and Colt's point of views as the two of them were such amazing characters! Also, the two characters had so much going on that it was definitely essential for this book to be written from both of their point of views! The ending of this book was so perfect that I don't think there will be another book for Paige and Colt! Too be honest I'm so happy that the author wrote a spin off to Tripping Me Up! I will definitely be reading the other book to this one, Tripping Me Up and will also definitely be checking out this author's other books! I was very impressed by this book and I can't wait to check out her other work! The cover for this book is so pretty! It definitely suits the book and I love it! Also, it suits the cover for Tripping Me Up as well! Big thank you to Amber for an ARC of Winning Me Over and also to This Redhead LOVES Books for having me on the Blog Tour!
