    This was a short, modern, romantic suspense set in West Texas. Stephanie Monroe was the sole survivor of a Sonora Nights Diner burglary and subsequent murder/disappearance of the employees.

Stephanie Monroe was the sole survivor of a Sonora Nights Diner burglary and subsequent murder/disappearance of the employees. The killer thought she was dead. Because the police lacked evidence and suspects she didn't qualify for witness protection, so her mom moved them to another town and changed their names. Stephanie Monroe became Jamie Danby and 10 years had passed. The case was cold and unsolved until the lone kidnapped employee's body is discovered. Texas Ranger, Kell Harding, is the ranger assigned to bring Stephanie in for a forensic hypnosis to see if she could remember anymore of what her mind blanked out all those years ago. They are attracted to each other. Kell tries hard to keep his mind focused on his job, but with Jamie putting the moves on him he failed. The author, Alison Kent, is also the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Writing Erotic Romance." I know this because she mentions it in her bio....Based on that, I was somewhat disappointed on those scenes. They left me feeling flat. Clinical. As for the rest of the book, I enjoyed it--mostly. For some reason, I wasn't able to immerse myself into the book, but hovered on the outside. The author did a nice job wordsmithing in several places, but for me, the scenes needed to move along at a faster clip; cut to the chase; get on with the point, extract info that wasn't necessary to the story. Her father leaving became irrelevant to the book and more info was needed on the location and discovery of the body. The first detective working the case and how he played a role was not relevant, either. Thought it was unprofessional how Kell spent the first night with Jamie. What about after he left, he never called her the entire weekend and when she calls him he's laughing into the phone as he answers. Little stuff like that just rubbed me wrong.

    The sole survivor of a vicious multiple homicide in a Texan diner ten years ago, Jamie Danby is floored by the news the last body from that night has been found and identified. What she can’t understand is, why the law enforcement didn’t alert her or her mother.

What she can’t understand is, why the law enforcement didn’t alert her or her mother. Apparently because they decided to do so in person, or at least Texas Ranger Kellen Harding did, because he’s suddenly there, in the small Texan town she’s lived in for the past decade, wanting her help in the investigation. Jamie’s been through this time and again. She does no remember anything! But Kell explains her amnesia is a defense mechanism, her memories are there, they only need to jog them. With the help of hypnosis. And though Jamie fears what the jogging of her memory might do to her, she’s still willing to give it a try. To assuage her survivor’s guilt and bring some closure to the people who lost their loved ones on that hellish night. The hypnosis session doesn’t bring much result, but apparently enough to rattle the killer who comes looking for Jamie, and Kell must do everything in his power to keep her safe. This wasn’t anything extraordinary, but it wasn’t bad either, taking a safe middle ground. Jamie bugged me with her inconsistencies, Kell was your typical jeans-and-Stetson-wearing, "I'm not the cuddling type, don’t take it personal" Ranger (though he did cook and had a great log cabin in the middle of nowhere), and the pacing was too slow at times. It picked up toward the end, when Jamie’s past came back to haunt her, but the ending left quite a few loose ends – was there really a leak, who was the leak, what was the reason for the killing spree etc. A solid story, but I’ve read better.

    Susan needs more books, not really

    This was a quick read. I almost gave up in the beginning when the heroine found she was majorly in lust with the hero after knowing someone wanted to kill her. I would have thought self-preservation would come first, not lust. Anyway, I stuck with it and found it an interesting read and didn't regret the time I spent to finish it. This was a quick read.

    You'd kinda think that a Texas Ranger would be a little smarter than your average bear. Unfortunately, a lot of these books featuring some nameless bad guy seem to have law enforcement heroes who seem...careless? Ok, so 10 years ago, an armed robbery took place at the diner the h worked at. She was the only survivor, and it was mostly due to being grazed - head - and the addlepated robber not checking. I never really understood why he made the owner drive to the middle of nowhere and killed him e You'd kinda think that a Texas Ranger would be a little smarter than your average bear. Unfortunately, a lot of these books featuring some nameless bad guy seem to have law enforcement heroes who seem...careless? Ok, so 10 years ago, an armed robbery took place at the diner the h worked at. She was the only survivor, and it was mostly due to being grazed - head - and the addlepated robber not checking. I never really understood why he made the owner drive to the middle of nowhere and killed him elsewhere. The h's parents split up due to dear old dad not being able to handle this, the h's mom got a legal name change (and was able to continue being a vet. Huh). And they reinvented themselves. The owner's remains have been found and our H shows up shortly after the h gets a newspaper and finds this out. He wants her to undergo hypnosis to see if she remembers anything. She comments that she'd always sort of had the impression the killer knew where she was but since she didn't seem to remember anything, he left her alone. Undergoes hypnosis, remembers a detail or three, goes home. Ok yes; sex does happen shortly after the hypnosis, and he stays the night after taking her home, but he leaves her there. No-one to watch her or anything. The killer shows up at the office she works in. She recognizes the tattoo but keeps her cool until well after he's left (and her co-worker comes back from break). She quickly calls H and tells him. He collects her and takes her to his mountain hideaway (that everyone at the office knows about). And then he decides to set a trap. Of course, they go to the pond unarmed and without a phone. He goes back to fetch and well... We never learn the ID of the killer - there was some speculation that his brother worked with the Rangers but it's never clarified. And even when he's suspicious that there might be a leak, he doesn't exactly make much effort to cover his tracks. And why, if you're setting a trap, would you ever be unarmed, let alone without the phone?

    First read from Alison Kent and it was good. Jamie has suffered a trauma which left her with selective amnesia of the event. Officer Cal approaches her, asking her to undergo hypnosis to help solve the case. Cal and Jamie have an instant connection. Being in Cal's care is difficult because they are so attracted to each other. This was a short romance, in a small town, filled with a little suspense, and a lot of steam.

    A white knight and the damsel Good read... fast paced, and a delightful set of characters. AK does a masterful job bringing the two sets of people together to solve a cold case crime. Jamie is thoughtful, strong, and passionate. I found the story believably written. Good job, AK. Well done.

    Disappointed I totally enjoyed several of Ms Kent's novels, specifically the Hope Springs series, and looked forward to reading WSR. Nothing like what I've previously read, in fact it's hard to believe WSR was written by the same person. What passes as plot is skimpy and contrived; mostly filler between unending sex. Ugh!

    Cold case I enjoyed reading this book! The main characters are romantic and courageous at the same time as frightened and insecure. You're engaged with the first chapter and held captive until the end. You can feel the Texas heat and the deep fear Jamie has carried for 10 years. Her Texas Ranger isn't going to give up and this provides an exciting story! Cold case I enjoyed reading this book!

    3.5 Stars for me. I did remove a star due to the excessive use of angst throughout the story. Cut it by 50% and this is a 4.5 star read for me.

    The insta love was kinda a crazy but the storyline was good. My one problem with this book is that it ended sooo soon and it never explained why the killer did what he did.

    It’s very difficult to write really complete stories in category length, especially Blaze, IMO, where so much of the emphasis is on the sex. Alison Kent is an author who excels in this format, never shortchanging the story or the characters for the sake of the sex. In this book, Jamie was the sole survivor of a mass murder in a diner, and 10 years later, the cold case has been reopened and Kell is the Ranger assigned. He’s determined to not only solve the case, but also to help Jamie in any way h It’s very difficult to write really complete stories in category length, especially Blaze, IMO, where so much of the emphasis is on the sex. Alison Kent is an author who excels in this format, never shortchanging the story or the characters for the sake of the sex. In this book, Jamie was the sole survivor of a mass murder in a diner, and 10 years later, the cold case has been reopened and Kell is the Ranger assigned. He’s determined to not only solve the case, but also to help Jamie in any way he possibly can. Here is one instance where the title of the book is actually truly fitting. Here’s a book where almost all the issues belong to the heroine. Rightfully so. She’s beautifully flawed. She drinks. She is distrustful. She is skittish. She is unwilling to think about tomorrow. Kent establishes this slowly, but by the time that Jamie and Kell have sex, we understand it and want Kell to break through and heal her. Even though Kell is sure he will walk away when the case is solved, he finds he is unable to, and we’ve seen him day by day become tied more closely to Jamie. I can’t recall a single Alison Kent book that I’ve not enjoyed. She’s able to write a complete book in category length; one that doesn’t feel rushed or forced in any way, yet when it’s finished, you can feel that the H/H are in love. She’s one of my favorite contemporary authors, whether it’s single title or category. The Sweetest Taboo is one of my all-time favorite Blazes, and I just finished With Extreme Pleasure, and really liked that one as well. King is a great hero. Loved him. But I digress... Point was, that I really liked One Good Man. If you're looking for a good Blaze to warm up with on a cold night, this is a good one :)

    There was not many things very new in this book. However I liked the way it was delivered. The mother-daughter love and relationship was well demonstrated. I liked how both the hero and heroine fell for the other. The pace of the whole story is quite fast, as everything takes place within one week, but somehow it works and even the deep feelings they both have for each other seemed realistic enough. However one scene seemed off to me (view spoiler)[ when she almost jumps him and gets half naked i There was not many things very new in this book. However I liked the way it was delivered.

And the ending left too many loose ends regards the investigation for which I really wanted more closure.

    3.5 I wouldn't have chosen this book had I not read Alison Kent's awesome Dalton Gang series, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. She really knows how to make you feel like you're at home in a place, feeling the heat and the connection between the characters and the land. The story was interesting and well-paced, though I felt it built up to something a bit anticlimactic. The chemistry between the leads was believable, and the sex was hot.

I'm not a fan of instalove, which is pretty much what happens here, and that and the speedy resolution (it's 160 pages and by 150 I was thinking, No way this book is complete...) are the reasons for deducting marks. But still a good, quick read.
