Review ~ BETWEEN ROCK AND A HARD PLACE by M.J. Schiller


Heath “Hawk” McGowan is a young, single, cop and father.  Jasmine Barrett is the rock star who has just discovered her best friend murdered in her own bed.  Jasmine, or “Jazz”, as her fans call her, is not at all what Heath expects when he first meets her.  Anticipating having to work with a prima donna, he is surprised to find her sweet and completely unassuming, in addition to being as sexy as her onstage persona.  After outlining a number of reasons why he shouldn’t become involved with her—the top reason being he is the lead investigator in the murder of her best friend—Heath finds that he can’t stop himself from falling in love.

 
Things heat up between the two, especially after Jazz discovers another body in the condominium’s garage, and her terror drives her closer to Heath.  Will Heath be able to solve the murders before Jasmine becomes the next victim?  Or will he save Jazz, while, at the same time, losing his heart to her?


REVIEW


I liked this book but I didn't love it.  The main characters, Heath and Jasmine seemed a lot younger than their stated years and slightly immature.  
 
Jasmine “Jazz”, a female rock star, has a lot of tragic murders happen around her.  Her uncle is overbearing and treats her like she's a small child although she's 24.  Jazz’s actions and reactions make her seem much younger than 24.  Heath, the detective handling her case, falls for Jazz. She has instant feelings for him too.  They try not to act on their attraction due to the murder case but they do anyway.  Heath has a six-year-old son that is treated like he is three.
 
The one perk to this book is that it's based in St. Louis, where I live, so it was really neat to read references to places that I can truly picture in my head.  Ultimately, Heath solves the case and he and Jazz get married and live happily ever after.
