Series: Rock Point Series #2
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Even at thirty seven, with a challenging but rewarding career as a paramedic, Bella Gomez is treated as the baby of the family. It’s made her allergic to anyone meddling, so she chooses to keep mostly to herself. Unfortunately that doesn’t stop her family from inserting themselves in her life. Nor does it deter the one man she knows she shouldn’t get close to from showing up on her doorstep.
Jasper Greene, an FBI agent with the La Plata County field office, doesn’t even know the meaning of family. His team is his family, which is why—when his boss asks him to keep an eye on his baby sister—Jasper readily complies. Even when the sister in question is a spectacularly developed princess with plenty of attitude.
With a shooter on the loose and corruption running rampant, Bella is a magnet for trouble, and Jasper finds himself with his hands full—in more ways than one.
CABIN 12 is another great addition to the Freya Barker catalogue. Without even looking at the book blurb, I know I am going to get a story about mature characters who come with a few dents. They live typical lives like us but often do remarkable things that make me cheer for them.
This book is no exception. In Jasper and Bella, we have two characters who may be outwardly composed but underneath lies a sense of unworthiness. Jasper Greene, a product of the foster care system, leads quite a solitary life. He’s never had a family and does not think he is capable of contributing enough as a partner to have ever tried. On the other hand, Bella Gomez is the youngest in a family whose method of helping involves large doses of interference and precious little listening.
Jasper and Bella know of each other but it’s the suspense element of the story that has them spending time together and learning from each other that not only are they both deserving but they have a lot to offer as individuals and as partners. And let’s not forget the spicy times. These two give us some hot stuff.
I enjoy Freya’s observations about not only romance but of family life. There is plenty of familial interference in this book and it is just so real; there are times of joy interspersed with times you want to tear your hair out.
CABIN 12 is perceptive, thoughtful, sexy and intriguing. It’s well worth reading.
Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories. Driven to make her books about 'real' people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and some hot, sizzling sex in their lives. A recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice”
Award for best first book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya has not slowed down.
She continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
