I guess they each got a taste of their own medicine and maybe they'll learn a lesson from this? Yeah, probably not. Leslie will continue conquesting every man who enters the station, and Daisy will continue judging her for this behaviour. I don't know what's wrong with this story, but in contrast to my very recently speed read romance from Christy Reece, this is doing nothing for me.
No desire to sit up all night reading it, no clenching of the heart at the sexual tension so thick you could cut it with a knife, no particular emotion for any of the characters except sadness at the thought of losing my parents like Shane and Shea did. I was expecting this to be super hot and sexy, considering Joann Ross' comment on the back cover "sizzling I'm quite disappointed actually.
Her firefighter series seems to have gotten rave reviews, so I'll give one of them a go before taking Jo Davis off my to read list. To be continued Later on page - Suddenly Daisy sounds like a five year old - "The scanner around her head was kind of scary. She didn't like that either. Of all the medical tests you could have after getting beaten or more likely a car accident , a CAT scan would be my favourite and I should know, I've had them all, beginning when I was a baby and continuing on through childhood.
You don't even have to deal with any needles, no contrast dye to make you nauseous, not even any electrodes stuck all over you, all you have to deal with is lying still and some noise - not 'scary' unless you're also scared of monsters under the bed. Two examples - just before Daisy goes out to a bar we're told that she's leaving her gun behind, something that according to her she and most other cops never does and isn't explained except for when she asks herself why she would need a gun at a bar - was that meant to be ironic?

Some of the lines are just ridiculous and completely unnecessary, like on page - Shane and Taylor have escaped from their sinking car, but are still 'in danger' due to the possibility of hypothermia due to the freezing temperatures of both the night air and the river. He takes his mobile out of his jeans pocket, but realises it's dead, and then Shane comes up with this insightful thought "If they got out of this in one piece, he'd take it to the store and get a new one.
Why do we need to be told this?
Is this not what everyone in every country mobile phones are available in would do? What other option has he got? Make one out of spare parts? Magic one up out of thin air? And this is not the only instance of complete unnecessariness, every few pages I'm left going "Huh? Why are you wasting words telling us that completely irrelevant piece of information?
You could have used that time and energy improving those yawn-worthy sex scenes. This was NOT good for me!
The sex scenes were boring, the characters were boring, the detective work was boring. This is a boring book. From all the praise Davis has received I was expecting a non-boring book. I have a food analogy - I was expecting a big, thick, juicy steak, but this book was more a leftover steak that you find in the back of the fridge with congealed fat dotted all over it - not appetising and memorable only for it's cold congealedness.

Sworn to Protect: Sugarland Blue Book 1
The issue I had with it probably wouldn't have happened if I didn't read the novella before it. In that novella, Shane and Daisy hook up. The thing is at the time of the hook-up, Daisy was very clear that she knew Shane wasn't a long-term guy. She knew that and even acknowledged it in that novella. But suddenly at the start of this book. That just didn't sit right with the way that every My Review: This was a pretty good book.
That just didn't sit right with the way that everything was presented in the novella and it really affected my enjoyment of this book. That reaction didn't fit. Besides that, this was an enjoyable book. Shane's best friend Brad suddenly dies leaving Shane to care for his 16 yo son.
Suddenly Shane is faced with responsibility, a family, and mortality along with a hurting, confused teenager. Enter Daisy, cop who works with troubled teens into the scene. That part of the story was a great set-up. I loved the addition to Brad and what he added to the story. He's hurting so much and as a typical teen, tends to lash out and act rashly although he's not a bad kid.
As a reader, my heart broke for him. He definitely added a lot of emotion to the story and the whole story pretty much circles around him and the mystery of his father's death, which worked for me. This book is setting up the entire series and I'm excited. I like the cops we've seen and how they all interact with the firemen that we love from Jo Davis's previous series. That was especially true of this first book because Shane's twin sister, Shea, is married to one of those firemen so both those characters played heavily in this story. While this first book didn't hit all the perfect buttons for me, I can already tell that the series as a whole is going to.pymefemezo.tk
Sworn to Protect (Sugarland Blue, book 1) by Jo Davis
I'm excited about it and can't wait for the next book. Feb 22, Barb Lie rated it really liked it. This is my first time reading anything by Jo Davis, and this will not be my last. Sworn to Protect is Contemporary Romance Suspense, and an excellent fun read. We meet our hero, Shane Ford, at the Sugarland police station, as all the detectives were sitting around complaining of boredom, and the simple cases they get.

Shortly thereafter, Shane and another detective are called onto a murder case. During this time, Shane laments his lost relationship with Daisy, a female cop in the Juvenile division. She still loves Shane, but was hurt badly when they broke up. Shane was not ready to settle down, and now he regrets his actions, especially every time he sees Daisy, who is very beautiful and sexy, as all the men ogle Daisy, which makes Shane angry. It is Daisy, who drops everything to help Shane, who needs all the help he can get trying to be a father figure to Drew.
From this point on, this becomes a multi faceted story of a beautiful romance, a teenage boy trying to rebuild his life and get past a terrible tragedy, of friends and family joining together to help those they care about, and a murder mystery that puts a few lives in danger. Shane and Daisy made the perfect couple, and their steamy sex scenes were on fire.
During the suspense of tying together a mystery that will tie all the pieces together, it was a wonderful story of true romance, with a great cast of wonderful characters. I really enjoyed this story, as I read this in one day. I plan to continue to read this series. Barb The Reading Cafe Jun 26, Booklover, Indianapolis rated it really liked it Shelves: romantic-suspense , read-in But - it's sweet in a way and I loved seeing the Firehouse boys, especially Tommy, who plays a pretty big role in the story.
Shane and Daisy are a sweet couple, but there is not much conflict - they'd had a bit of a fling before in a novella I did not read and now they still have feelings for one another, but Shane, a confirmed bachelor, is fighting them. The death of Shane's best friend brings them back into each other's lives, as Shane becomes the guardian of his friend's teenage son. For a short book under pgs there are quite a few sexytime scenes, including two improbable ones that take place when one or the other are just barely recovered from serious injury yeah, sure - I have a concussion and stitches, but what the hell - a quick handjob is easy enough to provide!
Sometimes I do wish female authors would try a bit harder when writing guys' dialogue - some of what they say I just cannot imagine any guy saying one teenage boy to another - "I held out the olive branch Plus sometimes I feel like all these guys have found their inner Dr.
