Let me start this review by saying that I have enjoyed another of Sherri Hayes series in the past. In fact, I’m a total fan of the Serpent Kiss Series and I wanted to try something else from her. It was very gratifying to see that she can hold my attention outside of the Serpent Kiss world.
Now let’s get into the actual review for Behind Closed Doors.
Elizabeth moves to Springfield to rebuild her life after it shatters in Ohio. She was not expecting things to go the way they did though. Her past doesn’t want to let her go completely and when bad things start to happen, a hero comes in the form of her hot neighbor from upstairs.
Christopher is Elizabeth’s new neighbor, they live in the same building. He was happy with his bachelor life until he realized his downstairs neighbor is someone he would like to pursue steadily and it doesn’t hurt that she fires up his protective instincts.
I had a great time reading how the relationship builds between these two main characters. I also have some opinions on Chris behaviors that were not so mature for his age at points in the book, but that didn’t take away my enjoyment in the end.
Sherri Hayes is a vastly talented writer in my opinion with a simple style that makes the reader able to immerse him or herself into the story without worrying about complicated words or phrases. She’s also able to create compelling stories and characters that keep you hooked.
Like I said before, the book wasn’t perfect but I truly enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone that likes protective men and romantic suspense.
Disclaimer: I am voluntarily reviewing an ARC copy of this book.
Thank You, Sherri Hayes!
About the Author
Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn’t good at spelling or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.
Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.
