A bombshell waitress who wants more. A former FBI agent who wants less … except for her.
*This is a standalone novel in the FEARSOME Series.
Imogene Walsh has always been unapologetically confident and ruthlessly opinionated with people, particularly men. No one is spared from her unfiltered mouth, but it hasn’t seemed to deter Cooper MacKenzie. Although he is not the clean-cut, businessman type she’s always thought she should pursue, Imogene is drawn to the sexy outsider who is the hottest topic in town gossip, the fantasy heartthrob women love to speculate about.
She has spent most of her life in the little town of Hera, NY, putting her numerous forgettable relationships behind her and floundering in both her professional and personal life. Work and men—neither have gone well for her. Now it’s reached the point where she wants to stop playing it safe.
It may be time to live up to her tough reputation and take a chance on Cooper, the only man who isn’t intimidated by Imogene’s brash personality. However, it could be a thrilling ride that doesn’t end well.
I absolutely adored Imogene!!!! She was the perfect blend of snarky, witty, blunt and she was hilarious as waitress.
That girl made me laugh out loud.
Apparently Imogene Walsh had been on Cooper MacKenzie’s radar for a while. But dear Imogene was everything else than nice to him. Which didn’t bother Cooper at all – he had the patience of a saint.
Imogene was an expert in dating, and had enough experience to know that finding the right one, and making it last is not something she thought she’ll ever have. The bright burn and an equally fast crash had been more her experience so far.
But Cooper kept pestering and chasing her until she relented.
Cooper had his doubts about a Happily Ever After. His parents’ divorce and remarriages made him very disheartened about marriage and family. But he still believed that Imogene was the right one for him, she was the ONLY one he was interested in and he was willing to see where it lead.
He just had to convince Imogen.
Like I said I adored Imogen. Her sarcasm and witty comebacks made me laugh out loud. Her time as a waitress was the funniest scene in the entire book, I couldn’t believe half of what she said and did, and multiple times I shook my head saying – NO, you didn’t!!!
I did think she sabotaged herself a bit and made it harder on herself and Cooper than it had to be, because Cooper was all in, and the hesitation was all on her part. Her pulling back all the time got a bit old and made me want to shake her multiple times.
I would have understood it if Cooper and Imogen didn’t fit so well together. They completed each other and it was sad to see her hesitate and doubt herself.
Since Faithful was book #3 – I can’t wait to read Carson and Dylan’s books.
