Rarely do I read Contemporary novels that contain no wisps of magic or sci-fi, <gasp> but after I read Arresting Mason’s description I grabbed a jar of peanut butter (extra crunchy Jif for those who care) and got down to Daulton business.

Set in Colorado, Arresting Mason follows Mason Harding, an ex-con recently released from a ten-year prison stint, and Mia Eddison, a divorced boutique owner. This unconventional love story begins with Mason narrowly escaping Mia’s car bumper to the legs in a crosswalk – perhaps not a ‘love at first sight’ type of story but definitely an ‘I’m happy I didn’t put you in the hospital’ one. Do not let the hint of potential romance create unrealistic chocolate and flower fantasies… From the moment your fingertips touch page one the author will own you at hello. Mason wants to leave his old life behind, but his old life hasn’t finished with him yet. Arresting Mason delves into prison brutality, drug deals, gang violence, kidnappings, and crooked cops, but it also clings tenaciously to redemption, family, love, new beginnings, and forgiveness.

*Note – Arresting Onyx books can be read as standalones, however, since characters are known to one another, I think it’s just more fun to read them in publication order.
