Mike's Way Back Tour + Review






Mike’s Way Back
by Amy Gregory

Release date: September 30th 2013
 Contemporary Romance

Hosted by Irresistible Reads Book Tours


Book Description: Detective Mike Sterling walked away from his dream job telling himself it was to honor the promise he’d made his mother, while lying in a Chicago emergency room. A year later, he’s still fighting the demons that followed him back to his boyhood town. 

Taryn Watts is an award-winning designer, going from project to project, living from a suitcase. Her plan for Renlend Kansas was the same as always. Go in, get the job done and get out, just the way she likes it. Growing up as a cop’s daughter, her every move was controlled. When she escaped to college she vowed to never fall in love with a cop –ever. Until she found herself sitting across from the ruggedly handsome stranger. Looking into Mike’s ice blue eyes they pulled her, called to her, but there was a haunting in them she knew too well.


Mike is drawn to Taryn, her passion for her work and her stunning beauty left him breathless, but what surprises him most is the peace he feels when he’s near her. Maybe it’s because Taryn is a temporary addition to his town and his secret is safe, or maybe it’s because she makes him feel safe. Mike knows he can’t keep up this charade and when Taryn moves to Renlend for an extended stay he can’t hide the truth any longer.


Can Taryn forget he’s a cop and give him her heart, or will his demons drive them apart?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!


What I say (review): Mike's Way Back is a short, sweet and sentimental contemporary romance. The title character Mike is a small town detective who has returned to his home town after leaving his fast paced job in Chicago (we find out why as the story unfolds). One night he meets beautiful interior designer Taryn in a local bar and she is most definitely not from a small town. 


As a cop Mike is used to being a dominant alpha male and Amy Gregory does a great job of showing their power struggle. Mike battles to reign in his dominant side with Taryn and tries to charm her (with varying degrees of success). Taryn is used to travelling around the country and isn't looking for any sort of relationship and definitely not with a cop! 

Both characters like control and most of their banter comes from their need be right or to not give away too much of their personality. 

Taryn's friends Andrew and Scott were a fun addition and it was nice to see how easily the very masculine Mike took to them when their own families didn't.

The story is really sweet and I was pleasantly surprised by Mike; he went to great lengths to make sure he didn't smother or over power Taryn and he eventually learnt to move on from the past.

3 - 3.5 Stars in my Sky!
