Running From The Law by Jami Albright
One night of passion. Two second chances. Three little texts….
Former child star Charlie Klein is in a world of trouble. She’s broke, jobless, and no longer famous – except with the IRS. She’s ready to run, so an emergency call from Texas is all the excuse she needs to get out of Hollywood. But she doesn’t expect to crash into the sheriff of her hometown – the boy she loved and lost. One look at Hank Odom confirms what her heart has always known…. She never stopped loving him.
Unlike the men in his family, Hank’s a do-the-right-thing kind of guy. When his cheating, soon-to-be ex-wife texts him wanting a second chance – or a 20th chance – he’s determined to honor his vows. One problem? His traitorous heart has never forgotten the woman who just blew back into town.
Charlie left her hometown with her mother to pursue her dream of becoming a child actor but years later her life is in shambles when her mother takes her money and leaves her with a mountain of debt including the IRS. She heads back home to help out her grandfather.
Hank is the Sheriff, her childhood sweetheart and always tries to do the right thing. When they meet up with each other one again the chemistry is off the charts and they have a steamy evening but they soon find out that trying to do the right thing may be the wrong thing?
This story takes you on a wild ride filled with humor, great characters and emotion. This is a great addition to the series and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and narrator does a great job with both the humor and emotional aspects of the characters.
