When Charlotte Murphy escapes from the ruthless serial rapist and killer, Loverboy, she finds herself completely lost and scared to death. Lost, frightened, recovering, and in the sights of a brutal killer. In a most odd but clever tactic from the police, they assign Charlie 24/7 live-in protection; a move that is supposed to comfort her and make healing easier. Somehow, despite the odds, Charlie finds a refuge in officer Nick Andrews and in his arms she finds the strength to heal and the courage to move on with life. Nick finds everything that he wasn't looking for in Charlie’s eyes and a fight against a killer that becomes personal.
When you begin reading Loverboy you have to take a minute before you realize what you’re reading. This book is not your run of the mill love stories. Charlie(Charlotte) is a serial killer’s victim that manages to escape and is put under protection by this awesome police officer named Nick who ende up getting a little too personal for his captain’s taste in this case.
I was very pleased that it wasn’t instant romance. The characters had to actually develop them over a bit of time together.
There are so many twists in this book that you will be trying to figure out who Loverboy is through the entire book.
I liked that the author did not simply make Charlie “all better” right after her attack and simply infatuated with her protector. I have personal reasons I can relate to this book and in many ways it speaks to me about growth and finding happiness and taking your life back after a horrible circumstance puts you in a place you can’t get out of. I was really shocked by the NEW MEMORy that is made at Central Par
This book isn’t really a teen book, but I don’t see a problem for a more mature 16+ reader to pick it up really.
I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!
Charlotte (Charlie) Murphy awakens in a hospital bed, in a lot of pain, no memories, and with Nick Andrews, a police guard stationed outside of her door. As Loverboy's latest victim, Nick vows to protect Charlie at all costs. Who is Loverboy? Loverboy is New York City's newest serial killer/rapist. As Charlie begins to gain her confidence again, and go about her personal life, she is forced to rely on Nick more and more.
One of my favorite parts is, when Nick and Charlie realize they both have a tattoo in memory of a loved one. Nick has a tattoo on his bicep of a police badge with his Grandfather's badge number in it, the words "They can't hurt you, unless you let them." is written underneath the badge. Charlie needs to remind herself of those words often throughout the book as she struggles to overcome all she can't remember, all she is afraid to remember; the fear that Loverboy is still loose. Charlie's tattoo is a phoenix on her back. You know what they say about phoenixes, right? They WILL rise again out of the ashes.
I Give this book 5 out of 5 shields!!
