Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.
Six months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.
Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.
Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don't kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

So while it isn't unusual for me to get completely engrossed in a book, as I so often do, this story was a completely different experience I never saw coming. Having never read this author before, while the blurb intrigued me, I has a bit of apprehension going into it because I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. However, within the fist few pages I discovered that not only was this story going to keep me furiously flipping the pages but it was FUN to read. When is the last time you read a book and it was fun? I'm talking the kind of fun that keeps you guessing what is really going on, makes your heart heavy and light in the same breath, and has you falling in love with each and every character in a book the second they are introduced. Because for me, that all happened by the end of the first chapter. It was a forgone conclusion that there was literally nothing that could happen to dampen my feelings towards any aspect of the story.

Did you know that pleading "no, no, no, no, no, no, no" at the end of the book does not help you avoid getting shoved off a cliff by an author? I did, but it didn't stop the words from flying out of my mouth when I hit the last page of End of Day. Keep in mind that when I first signed up to review the book I had no idea that it was the first installment in a series. But that knowledge wouldn't have stopped me from signing up to review it nor would knowing there was a cliffhanger as I pretty much accept that a cliffhanger is highly probably when a book is part of a series. Why would I have tread forth despite knowing that a cliff was in my imminent future? Because after reading Idle Bloom, I fell in love with Ms. Ann’s writing and Only Trick sealed the deal, so I jumped at the chance to review End of Day. And I am so very glad that I did because I loved this book and cannot wait for its...
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
When I first posted this book in my review group, no one wanted the book to review. I read the synopsis again and decided I wanted to give it a try even though it's more of a romance and those aren't my favorites to read. I am glad I read it. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the characters in it. Jessica/Jillian is a hoot. She's a kick butt, no holds barred, doesn't give a crap about what anyone says, independent woman. She is not apologetic for anything she does, including strutting to the mailbox in little but her underwear in the middle of their "retirement" community. Jillian gives more than a few of the neighbors heart palpitations, which isn't necessarily good at their age. But, she's also a fun, loving character with a complicated past.
Jude/Jackson is more of a mystery. There are hints of his playboy nature past but his new persona, Jackson, is anything but that. He's used this...
