Rick Street is one of the unlucky ones. His rough past in the foster care system has led him to a life of homelessness. But despite it all, the handsome young man is a decent person which is why he steps out of the shadows one night when he realizes a girl is about to be victimized. When the police see Rick brandishing a knife in the young woman's defense, they're confident they've found the serial killer that has been stalking the streets of Salt Lake City . . .
When probation officer Miranda Martinez is assigned to Rick's case, she thinks she's in for a tedious project. Though he's been cleared as a suspect in an ongoing murder case, Miranda has been tasked with helping Rick to become a productive member of society. Impressed by the passion with which Rick works to turn his life around, she is unwillingly drawn to the successful and confident man he is becoming. But with their focus on one another, it's all too easy to forget that there is still a serial killer at large and when the strange phone calls begin, Miranda fears she may be the next target. As Rick uncovers his own shocking connection to the murderer, he must draw on his years on the streets to protect the woman he loves in a deadly race against time . . .


I was at Deseret Book a couple of weeks ago and decided to buy some books on CD since I am always in my car.  I am so glad I picked this one up.  It was wonderful.

Rick Street started his life out a little rough.  He has lived on the street for years, and he is a survivor.  He wants to better his life, but doesn't quite know how to go about it.  

One night Rick follows another street guy by the name of Slice.  Rick is sure Slice is up to no good, and this time he has a young woman with him.  Rick follows him, and when he hears screaming coming from a bathroom he goes in armed with a 2x4.  Right about the time the police enter the room and take Rick down.  They accuse him of aggravated assault and he is put in jail.  

Rick's life goes from bad to worse.  To his udder delight the judge decides to do a little something different with Rick.  Ricks life takes an unexpected turn, and one that could be wonderful if he takes the opportunities that the judge has put before him.  He gets assigned a probation/case worker by the name of Miranda.  Miranda is suppose help Rick becoming a contributing member of society.

The story just gets more and more interesting. Rick is such a great character, and I cannot even tell you how bite-o-luscious this man is.  Just mmmm.  Okay, who says that about a street guy?  Oh, he is so much more than that!  I promise.  Just read and you will understand how fabulous he is.

Rick's life is full of surprises.  Some good, and some not so good.  Rick's story is so wonderful to follow.  It's full of twist and turns.  It kept me on my "drivers" seat the whole time.  It was hard to exit the car and turn the CD's off.  My kid complained every time because they couldn't watch a movie...hehehe!  Poor spoiled children.  hehe.

This book took so many different turns, it was awesome.  Once you think you have something figured out, another twist is thrown in.  The way it all comes together was A MAY ZING.  

I don't want to give anything away, but if you like mystery, watching someone come into themselves, love, family.  You will like this book.  It's so fantastic.
