Cleo James does not really let people get
too close, but there is something about Cyrus Giordano that
draws her to him. She simply will not allow herself to be
attracted to him, especially since he is her new boss at The
Lair, the bar where she bartends.
Cyrus is pulled toward Cleo from the
moment he sees her behind the bar. Cyrus is the boss and he
wants to get to know a little about all his employees
especially Cleo. He feels like he needs to be with her and
that there is a connection.
Cleo really does not have a family except
for her friends; Janet, Max, Lisa, and Joseph, who work with
her at The Lair. The five of them have each other’s best
interest at heart and will do anything to protect each other.
That is why they all dislike Jared Braden so much and want to
keep him away from Cleo with whom he seems to be obsessed.
Cyrus immediately joins in their dislike of Jared and the
entire group immediately accepts him…like he belongs there.
All of these friends seem to be connected in some way, and not
just in their need to protect Cleo, and their desire to keep
her safe from the craziness that Jared is causing. Will Cleo
be able to let down her defenses and accept Cyrus?
In the Moonlight is a great
book and what I hope is the start to a great series involving
the secondary characters and the thing that draws them all
together. Cleo is a sexy woman who just cannot put herself
out there as life never seems to give her what she really
wants. Cyrus knows from the moment he sees Cleo that he must
have her as a part of his life. I loved the interaction with
all the characters and I was hoping Cleo would find a way to
accept Cyrus from the start. Sherri Good knows how to weave a
wonderful story and I love the way all the characters are
connected. In the Moonlight is a keeper!
