Book 1 of the Dojo Chronicles
Rating: 4 Cups
Reed Mohr is a fighter. She does martial arts, was an advocate for children, and now helps run a wellness facility for seniors. She is small with red hair and loves her family fiercely. She is known to take in the occasional stray.
Jordon Bennett is a very wealthy man. A tragedy when he was eighteen caused him to focus all of his energies on making money and being a part of the family business. He is at loose ends now that his uncle has taken that from him.
Reed helps run a financially strapped elder care facility with her aunt. Jordon has been ordered to find and marry a real woman who loves him. The two are instantly attracted to each other and their Las Vegas wedding was anything but planned. Reed thinks she made a mistake in marrying a man she hardly knows. Jordan needs her to regain his position in BH, but soon finds that Reed's love is more important than the business he thought he could not live without.
This is a well written story with an interesting setting, great characters and a gripping storyline. Reed and Jordon are complicated people with many issues and have difficulty opening up to each other. The subplot of Jordon's security chief and Reed's aunt could almost be a book of its own. The other subplots enhance the story. I loved the characters, particularly Reed's adopted son Jesse and Henry, the security chief. This author really knows how to tell a good story and when she weaves in bits and pieces involving martial arts, the story really stands out from others in the genre.
