When he came home from an assignment, there was only one thing that mattered to Simon “Smash” Smazniski, and that was seeing his favorite waitress, Tabitha Myers. As one of the covert group, the Four Horseman, Smash cherished Tabitha’s innocence and normalcy. Tabitha is recovering from nightmares from her past and Simon is the first man she has been attracted to in years. Both their pasts are about to put a dangerous twist in their blossoming relationship.

I really liked this book in spite of it’s decided lack of sexual content. It was a good, solid romantic suspense. It had strong and vibrant characters who played off each other very nicely. I would have liked it better had the heroine been less timid She kept repeating her father’s mantra of ‘That which doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger’, but she very seldom exhibited a lot of backbone. There was a surprise twist at the end which caught me off guard. Not an easy thing to accomplish. The groundwork was firmly laid for the next story in the Four Horseman series, involving Maddog Turner. I think I’ll take the time to check his story out.
