Kristen Ashley--For You (The Burg #1)

Contemporary Romance

Lieutenant Alexander Colton and February Owens were high school sweethearts. Everyone in their small town knew from the moment they met they were meant for each other. But something happened and Feb broke Colt’s heart then she turned wild and tragedy struck. Colt meted out revenge against the man who brought Feb low but even though Colt risked it all for her, Feb turned her back on him and left town.

Fifteen years later, Feb comes back to help run the family bar. But there’s so much water under the bridge separating her and Colt everyone knows they’ll never get back together.

Until someone starts hacking up people in Feb’s life. Colt is still Colt and Feb is still Feb so the town watches as Colt goes all out to find the murderer while trying to keep Feb safe.

As the bodies pile up, The Feds move in and a twisting, turning story unravels exposing a very sick man who has claimed numerous victims along the way, Feb and Colt battle their enduring attraction and the beautiful but lost history that weaves them together.

{3.5 stars}
This is probably the lowest rating I have ever given a KA book before. And I waffled on my decision. The reason for this is I think the book was 100 pages to long. It's a great story, mind you, and I love Colt and Feb. The base mystery/suspense storyline was unique, and their love story was absolutely great. But there was a lot of normal redundancy mixed in. That bogs a story down for me personally, and I need it to keep a more fast paced, on the edge of my seat, page turning kind of story.
