Gabrielle Carpino has forced herself to move through the motions of life over the past few years since tragedy touched her family. Closing herself off from living her life and refusing to look in the future has become her norm...that is until one day at a clients home where she's thrown into a tailspin of craziness!
Gabby's awakening begins as she is cuffed and patted down by Special Agent Jude Ortiz, with his dark chocolate eyes and a commanding bossy way that Gabby just can't resist. When Jude's protective instincts kick in, he finds himself wrestling feelings he hasn't allowed in years and he moves in to watch over Gabrielle. Between battling criminals, flooded basements, fantasy football drafts and Gabby's crazy family, Jude finds himself unable to resist her beauty and quirkiness.
What begins to look like a chance at happiness for Gabby and sexy Jude Ortiz, it could all be ripped away when past demons are forced into the light. Jude fights off the demons around them creating a safe place for Gabby to allow herself to overflow and live again.
Overflow begins when Gabby is at her friends house finishing up the decorating job she was working on when all of a sudden tons of FBI come swarming the place! Agent Jude Ortiz is one of the leads on the investigation, and when he lays eyes on Gabby all bets are off. From that point on Jude puts himself in situations where she's going to be, and Gabby isn't at all sure what to make of it. With each of them both trying to overcome tragic pasts, they look to each other to hopefully find a future again. But there seems to be lots of things trying to get in the way of that future.
This book was really really good! I enjoyed it a whole heck of a lot! It has a hot alpha male, and a funny, and cute heroine! The plot line was really interesting as well. It kept me interested from start to finish! And what a finish it was. The epilogue rocked! I highly recommend this book, and now I look forward to more in this series!
