Review: Stealing Taffy

For this review, I chose Stealing Taffy by Susan Donovan.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Ten weeks in a swanky Arizona rehab center has done wonders for Tanyalee Newberry. She’s turning over a new leaf – no more manipulating men, shoplifting, or forgery for her! But when her flight home gets rerouted in bad weather, she ends up sharing a hotel room (and seven hours of mind-numbing sex) with her airplane seatmate, a complicated Northerner who is clearly not who he says he is. Tanyalee sneaks off while he sleeps, leaving a bracelet as a memento of their encounter.

DEA Special Agent Dante Cabrera wakes up alone in a Washington, DC hotel room, bested at his own “love-‘em-and-leave-‘em” game by a sexy Southern belle. A pink and silver charm bracelet engraved with the word “Taffy” is all that’s left of the wildest night he’s had in years. And because his transfer request was denied, it’s back to the hills of Western North Carolina Dante must go. Weeks pass, but Dante can’t forget the taste of sweet Taffy.

When an ongoing investigation leads Dante to a little girl Tanyalee mentors in a community service program, their anonymous hotel hookup gets dragged into the bright light of real life. Is there more to Tanyalee and Dante than a one-night stand? Has Tanyalee unwittingly put herself and the child in danger? Can Dante save them both?

This was my first book I read by Miss Donovan and I loved it!  Tanyalee made some bad decisions and that bit her in the butt.  She has to make amends to those she hurt.  She hates her nickname, Taffy, but when she meets a stranger on a plane she gives him Taffy.  Dante wants to find her, but can not since he does not have her name or where she lives.  Until one night, Tanyalee is in the meeting he attends.  What is a man to do?

It had romance, humor, and a touch of suspense.  Tanyalee was funny and true to life.  We all make mistakes.  Well, maybe not as bad as Tanyalee, but we do make mistakes.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
