My Review

Green is a fast paced and intriguing read. I was pulled into Anna and Coop’s story from the very first page. Anna was definitely not the type of girl to sit back and let a man handle all of her problems. She wanted to stand up and handle things for herself. As much as she doesn’t want to have to depend on others, she will quickly learn that there are some people worth trusting and depending on. The one thing she never saw coming though was Cooper. When Cooper is assigned to babysit Anna, he will quickly learn just how fiery Anna is. Anna will test and challenge Cooper in ways that he never expected. Anna is off limits, but the chemistry between these two is hotter than anything Cooper has ever seen before. Staying away might just prove to be the hardest thing he’s ever done…

Overall, I thought Green was a pretty good read. There were a few spots where the story was a little bumpy, but easy to look past. Green was fast-paced and kept me on my toes. I thought this story had some great action, and suspense. There was no shortage of steamy moments or twists. Green is the third book in the Love in Color Series, but I do believe it can be read as a stand-alone novel. Even though I did feel like there was some bumpy parts of the story, I am still going to round this book up to four stars because I thought it was a really entertaining read.

GREEN Excerpt

Copyright © 2018 S.M. West

Eventually, I select a large canvas, so large, I can’t get it on the easel and settle for the floor. I strip my jeans, long sleeved shirt and slip my shoes off, donning the sizeable green smock hanging on the wall. And I paint. Losing track of time or space. Fully immersed in the colors, my vision, my emotion.

“Here you are,” Coop says from the doorway, and I twist on all fours in his direction.

He’s leaning on the door jamb with his arms relaxed at his sides, and his feet crossed like he has been standing there a while.

“How long have you been here?”

I’ve been painting for hours, my fingers tingle, my feet are numb, and my lower back aches from crouching and contorting myself into strange, awkward positions. I was oblivious to the cries of my body while working.

“A bit.” He pushes off the wall, nearing to help me to my feet.

I roll my neck and shake out my limbs before tilting my head to look at him. He smiles, his white teeth and twinkling eyes pop as he tucks a few strands behind my ear.

“You’ve got some paint on your face.” His finger slides down my check and then the side of my nose. “It looks good on you.”

Heat travels from the center of my chest outward, and I can’t help but smile, “I’m glad you think so.”

Gone is my anger or bruised ego from his departure last night. I don’t really know what I was expecting or wanting, and I’m glad to see him. I’m also happy to see that he’s more himself.

“What am I going to do with you? You have to stop disappearing on me.”

“And what? Make your job easier, not a chance.” I tease, treading lightly, all too aware of the kind of trouble my wondering off could cause.

Don’t miss the first two standalone novels in the Love in Color series, RED and BLUE.
