Marine Jeremy is on leave in Las Vegas. As the story opens he’s walking in the desert, dehydrated and aimlessly walking in hopes of getting back to his hotel. He had been in a bar brawl, drank way too much alcohol, and now can’t remember how he got into the desert. He hears a car coming toward him in the distance and flags it down. The car belongs to Erica, the sister of an ex-childhood best friend Tommy. Jeremy and Erica have a history that also went south.
Since this is a short story, I don’t want to give too much away in my review. This was a nice, quick read, taking me just a day to complete it. I liked the author’s writing style and would read something else by her. Though we didn’t see it first hand, the characters history was explained in flashbacks and inner monologue so readers wouldn’t be clueless. Jeremy and Erica’s characters felt very fleshed out. The characters were likeable and once explained, I was sympathetic toward Erica. Jeremy was hot, sweet, and caring.
I feel the need to mention the cover for Try Me. *cough* I’m not dead. Holy hell, it’s a hot one. Thank you nameless model, for giving Jeremy a nice body to daydream about.
I’m so glad I answered an email from Entangled to, well, try Try Me.
