Tia Parker always seems to fall for the wrong guy. But when she meets Evan Spence at a friend’s wedding, it seems like she’s finally found Mr. Right. Their spark is undeniable, but reality may extinguish any hope for a future: they are separated by thousands of miles. As the couple struggles with the pitfalls of pursuing romance long-distance, Tia is taken off guard by a new arrival in town. Colby Farren is handsome and charming and has made it clear he’s interested in Tia. Yet despite his obvious infatuation, Tia can’t seem to get Evan out of her mind. Caught between the attention of two very different men, her complicated love life is soon eclipsed by much more sobering concerns. A break-in at her apartment is just the first in a series of bizarre events, each bringing her one step closer to a dangerous liaison. And knowing who to trust could be a matter of life and death.
It’s always a great day when there’s a new book by Traci Hunter Abramson to read! I love her books so much. She’s great with characters, romance and suspense. Everything you could ever want in a book is packed in!
Proximity starts off with Colby. He’s the newest police officer in the tiny town of Cottonwood, Arizona. He’s from Alaska, where life didn’t quite work out. I couldn’t put my finger on why, but I never really liked his character. Maybe it was his cockiness…but I really don’t know.
I loved Tia in this one! She is really her own person. She’s always late, she’s great at playing baseball with the guys and everyone who knows her likes her. There were so many little things about her that made her her own person. I loved that! It was really fun how she and Evan meet and immediately like each other.
Evan is just in Arizona for the wedding of his friend, Drew to Tia’s friend Julie. His life seems so full of adventure. Working in Paris just seems so romantic. I loved the way he always watched out for Tia, no matter what the consequences. And the way that he’s so in-tuned to her to know when something is terribly wrong.
And it was so much fun to see much loved characters Kendra and Charlie from Obsession. It’s always fun to “see” characters that you’ve loved before and find out what’s been happening to them.
The plot of this one is amazing! There were many parts that were romantic and amazing. But the very next part would be so suspenseful that the reader doesn’t want to put down the book until they figure out what’s going to happen next.
If you love romance or suspense, make sure to read Traci Hunter Abramson’s books. They’re some of my very favorites!
I was sent a copy of Proximity as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
