You’re the Kevlar…
Behind the badge and the pretty face was a heart. A heart that bled just like the rest. A heart that was so in love with Viddy Sheffield that it was humiliating. Trance had been burned before by a woman that couldn’t handle the fact that he risked his life each and every time he went on shift. She was too vulnerable; somehow he had to convince his heart to let her go. His life would chew her up and spit her out.
Viddy couldn’t get the man out of her head. Just the thought of Trance put a smile on her face. And when he walked into the same room? Words couldn’t explain. God help her, but she was even in a relationship with another man. She shouldn’t be thinking about the sexy biker with the voice that made shivers dance down her spine.
Then the unthinkable happens, and the sexy cop she can’t stop thinking about is there for her, giving her what she never knew she needed. One moment in time, and she finds herself falling for the man, lock, stock, and barrel. The two of them have a lot of work to do to make this relationship succeed. What they didn’t know, however, was that there were people behind the scenes that were working to keep them apart. Sometimes the saying is true. You can’t always have what you want.
Kevlar to my Vest was a total hit for me! Sometimes, Vale’s books don’t work but this one totally did. Viddy is a special education teacher like me, so yay!! I loved her story-lost her sight in an accident but didn’t let that stop her. Trance is a wonderful book boyfriend too. He’s a cop so you have some tension coming from his fear that no woman will put up with what he does for a living. These two are just perfect for each other. Added drama comes from Viddy’s batshit crazy ex too! Holy moly! I didn’t expect the twist at the end either so kudos to Vale for that.
Overall, this was a delightful listen! As usual, Mason Lloyd and Lidia Dornet are phenomenal! Dornet really nails that slight southern twang.
