The Counterfeit Review

I just finished The Counterfeit by Tammie Gibbs and I really liked it! :)
What Is It About? 
Sometimes the Road to Justice is filled with Compromise… 
Jeremy Loud is good at what he does. 
As a Secret Service Operative he’s quick on his feet and a master of his emotions. 
Then, he wakes up naked, disoriented and in physical pain to find a mysterious woman busy at his stove. His first mistake is assuming she’s a barmaid. His biggest mistake is underestimating her ability to get into trouble. Soon he realizes his assignment to infiltrate and bring to justice the infamous Quincy Davenport and his band of counterfeiters might be easier than keeping one strong-willed and beautiful redhead out of trouble. 
Magen MacGuire is determined to find the man responsible for her father’s death and make him pay. 
Then, her plans go awry and a case of mistaken identity leads her to the last thing she expects; a mysterious stranger she could easily fall in love with. She makes a choice to right a wrong, but in her case doing the right thing isn’t viewed as proper and gets them both into even more trouble. 
The odds are against them, but can they find the love of a lifetime before their secrets are exposed and if they do can they overcome the lies? 
What Did I Think About It?
 I fell in love with Magen and Jeremy! This was a sweet historical romance with some mystery in it. I was hooked from the first page where our leading lady decided to run the hero down with her wagon! Magen wasn't a meek, mild woman who sat back and watched the world go by. Jeremy was strong and powerful and yummy! But he appreciated Magen's spunk and didn't try to break her spirit by any means. I laughed at parts of this book and it had some twists that I wasn't expecting! There was the classic they both love the other but are too afraid to say so ploy in the book and a wedding they both want to make work but the circumstances of the wedding was a surprise and very sweet! I think my favorite character of this book was Magen who went to punch an old busybody that was insulting her! I loved Jeremy though and I empathized with him over the lost of his wife.The writing was clear and tight. I  I was cheering for the couple and there was some definite passion between them. That being said, it was also a clean read. I wouldn't be afraid to let a tweenager read this book. I would recommend this book to everyone who is looking for a sweet romance with some mystery! I really liked this book! You need to check out this book guys! here!
