Out of My League (Hope Valley #1) by Jessica Prince
After years of war, Lincoln Sheppard thought he’d left the violence and ugliness behind. He was content with the life he built for himself. Then the woman down the street came in and shook everything up.
All Eden Brenner ever wanted was to have a place to call home. She finally found that in Hope Valley. Then she went and fell in love with the man a few houses down the first time she laid eyes on him. There was just one problem. Women like her didn’t catch the attention of men like him. He was totally and completely out of her league. And to make matters worse, when her past comes knocking, the beautiful world she’s built for herself is at risk of crumbling to the ground.
When danger forces Eden into his arms, Lincoln begins to see her in a whole new light, and he suddenly finds himself wanting things he never expected. And he wants them all with the shy, clumsy woman from down the street. But when the truth comes out, that proves nearly impossible. Now he’s fighting the hardest battle of his life, and the stakes are higher than ever. Protect the woman he’s falling for while trying to win her heart at the same time.

Out of My League was a great start to a brand-new series by Jessica Prince. This is my first ever book written by her and I can say I’m excited to see what else she has in store for us.
I had a bit of Rock Chick déjà vu, but only because Lincoln Sheppard has a PI company and helps out the local PD force. All Alpha and charming, he catches the eye of out plain Jane, Eden Brenner, who just moved to Hope Valley.
Eden has a transformation here, from Plain Jane to the beauty that charms everyone she meets. Her only problem is her family of criminals who made her life a living hell, until she managed to get out.
Because of her brother, Linc is being asked to have a look on her, only to find out really quick that she more than meets the eye.
Of course, things are not that simple, and bad men come after Eden.
I am starting book 2 as soon as I finish this review, so keep you posted with this series.
