When Detective Mike Sterling left the Chicago PD and returned to his hometown of Renlend Kansas, he tried to convince himself it was so his mother could stop worrying. The truth was, even Renlend wasn’t going to vanquish the dreams that tortured him at night.
When Taryn Watts landed in Renland Kansas to design a client’s new cooking school she intended to stay just long enough to do the job and then go right back to her life on the East Coast.
When Taryn and Mike found themselves sharing a booth, one thing was certain, neither one of them thought it was a good idea. Mike still wasn’t over his ex-wife’s betrayal, and when Taryn found out Mike was a cop she wanted to run all the way back to Connecticut and never look back, but she couldn’t… Sitting outside his home late at night she watches him fight against his demons. Demons she already had too much experience with firsthand.
When Mike finally admits there is no way to outrun his demons, Tayrn knows she’ll do anything, or be anything, to help Mike find his way back.
Amy Gregory is one of my favorite authors. Her stories and characters consistently have a way of drawing me in and entertaining me. I always look forward to her next release. I sigh every time I look at this cover!!!
I'm so glad Amy decided to write about Mike. He caught my attention from the start and I was so interested in reading more about him. I love how Mike's Way Back started out with Mike and Taryn both being attracted to each other but with Taryn not especially fond of cops, Mike had his work cut out for him. It was so funny to read Mike trying to be all smooth and charming but failing miserably. lol He kept having to apologize and start over. I loved that Taryn was able to act unaffected on the outside towards Mike. She definitely kept him on his toes. She was able to stand up to his big personality without losing herself. They were such a great couple. So cute together and the sexual chemistry poured off the pages. When they finally had sex for the first time....SMOKING HOT!!! ;) I also loved that Taryn was able to help Mike overcome his torment that lead to him leaving Chicago. She helped him face that tragedy and find the peace to move on. Loved the ending ~ so sweet.
4 out of 5 rating!!
Such a good story and I am so looking forward to more. Thanks Amy!! :)
When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs. The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”. She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions. Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.
She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years. And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well. At least she’s grateful most of the time! Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. … The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!
