Title: An Officer and a Rebel (Accidentally in Love #2.5)
Author: Cindi Madsen
Rating: 5/5 stars
“Doing the wrong thing has never felt so right…
The last person police officer Nate Walsh expected to discover stranded in a snowstorm is his brother’s ex—and former town rebel—Kelsey Cooper. His complete opposite in every way, Kelsey’s the girl he never allowed himself to want. But when she agrees to stay with him until the storm passes, he definitely finds himself wanting the gorgeous, tattooed woman. Too bad Nate’s sure his brother is still in love with her…
Kelsey had only meant to drive through her tiny hometown, not end up spending time there. With a cop. But despite her issues with authority figures, even she can admit Mr. Serious looks pretty hot in his uniform. Unfortunately, she’s sworn off relationships—and she’ll never be the girl for a nice guy.“(description from Goodreads)
This is my first time reading Cindi Madsen and I can already tell I’ll be tracking down all her other books to read. This may be a novella, but it hit all the right buttons for me.
It seems I’m a sucker for winter romances, and An Officer and a Rebel was no exception. I was reading this one during a hot summer day, but was easily transported into the middle of a snowstorm. Madsen wrote such a great setting for the book, reading that alone made me love the book.
But what’s a romance without great characters? The setting isn’t the only thing Madsen’s great at writing. I really enjoyed reading Kelsey and Nate’s story. They’re great characters, know their flaws, and felt so realistic. Everything in the story felt natural and helped me get sucked in early on and root for them until the finish line.
This Madsen novella was a great read. It didn’t feel to short or too long. Just the perfect length. And if it’s a taste of what the other Accidentally in Love series has in store for me, I may have a new favorite author waiting for me.
