No One But You by Brenda Novak

Setting: Silver Springs, California.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: MIRA
Release Date: May 30, 2017



After escaping an abusive marriage to a police officer, Sadie Harris works as many hours as she can at a local diner, but it's not enough. She stumbles across an ad looking for an assistant. The job pays far more than Sadie currently makes. The problem is Dawson Reed, a man recently released from prison for murdering his parents, is the person in need of help. Sadie's just gotten out of one cruel relationship, she's very nervous about working for a man who was charged with murder.

Now that Dawson is out of prison, he's determined to find who really killed his parents. He also needs to get his sister out of the facility where she was placed and bring her back home. To do that, he needs someone who can be his sister's caregiver. Sadie is the perfect woman for the job.

As Sadie and Dawson get to know each other, the chemistry is obvious. However, Sadie's soon-to-be ex-husband is not about to let her go. Especially not when the person she's working with is a criminal. Sadie and Dawson may be trying to escape their pasts, but their pasts don't want to let them forget so easily.

I've always loved Brenda Novak's romances. The settings are charming. Characters come to life and make you wish they were friends. In No One But You, there's also the touch of mystery that you do want to see how it plays out.

Dawson and Sadie are a great couple. There's definitely chemistry that sizzles, but the added involvement of her pain in the behind ex does make you want to reach into the book. I hated him and couldn't wait to see him get some kind of comeuppance. I wasn't disappointed at all with Brenda Novak's latest.
