A bombshell waitress who wants more. A former FBI agent who wants less … except for her.
*This is a standalone novel in the FEARSOME Series.
Imogene Walsh has always been unapologetically confident and ruthlessly opinionated with people, particularly men. No one is spared from her unfiltered mouth, but it hasn’t seemed to deter Cooper MacKenzie. Although he is not the clean-cut, businessman type she’s always thought she should pursue, Imogene is drawn to the sexy outsider who is the hottest topic in town gossip, the fantasy heartthrob women love to speculate about.
She has spent most of her life in the little town of Hera, NY, putting her numerous forgettable relationships behind her and floundering in both her professional and personal life. Work and men—neither have gone well for her. Now it’s reached the point where she wants to stop playing it safe.
It may be time to live up to her tough reputation and take a chance on Cooper, the only man who isn’t intimidated by Imogene’s brash personality. However, it could be a thrilling ride that doesn't end well.
I received a ARC from Netgalley for an Honest Review.
I haven’t read any other books in this series, and I am sad to say I wish I did. I would have loved to have gotten to know and understand the other couples that are supporting characters in this story. In this, the 3rd book in the Fearsome series by S.A. Wolfe, we come to learn about Imogene Walsh. She is abrasive, rude, sarcastic, and stand offish to all men. She has been burned one too many times. Due to those past relationships she doesn’t trust her heart or her hormones.
The most handsome and eligible bachelor in her small town of Hear, has been trying to get Imogene’s attention for a while, but every time he comes into her families diner, she gives him the cold shoulder. Finally talking to the guy and giving in to his pursuit, she begins to see there is more to this mysterious ex-FBI agent then the beautiful long blond hair and deep grey eyes.
The story is very clever. I thought it was great that Imogene was trying to not swear as much, so she would say the phrase backwards, -kcuf, nos-of-a- hctib. So funny. I enjoyed her character. She is different than other female protagonist that are more commonly used. Imogene is a confident women. She isn’t a tiny person nor is she obese. She is a curvy size 10 and proud of it. She knows she is beautiful and has used it to her advantage, but now she just wants to get on with her life and not deal with “wankers” (her phrase for all men) any more.

When Copper comes in, he has to work extremely hard to get Imogene to give him a chance. He is the ying to Imogene’s yang. Copper comes with his own skeletons in his closet. The further Imogene falls for one him, the more he with holds information about his past and family. It drives a wedge between the two.
This story is different, because we have a strong female protagonist that speaks her mind. Imogene doesn’t allow people to walk all over her, which is a good thing. She has built up walls around her heart to guard it because of the main boys/men who have shattered it. I think many women can relate to Imogene in a sense (e.g.) they are happy with who they are, but are still scared to take that leap of faith regarding relationships. I am glad I got the chance to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the previous ones and any that follow after.
