I received a copy of I Can Handle Him by Debbie K. Lum from PR By The Book in exchange for my review. I thought this book was pretty good and the twist midway through really surprised me!
“Quinn Corbin’s got nothing to lose – except her life. She’s finally got the attention of the man she’s always loved, Nick Allen. But Nick has a reputation for trouble. And after a car explosion killed his last girlfriend, many people in San Antonio, Texas think Nick got away with murder. But Quinn, a 24-year-old elementary school teacher and bubbly optimist, believes Nick is innocent. So does her best friend Tory, a law student and sarcastic realist. Soon Quinn and Nick find their relationship growing when suddenly their world upends. Now Nick is in major trouble again and Quinn may have made the biggest mistake of her life. With incriminating evidence mounting against Nick, Tory works to prove his innocence. But Nick finds himself in a bigger battle when he must fight to protect, and win, his true love.”
In a way, the book description is misleading, but I can’t tell you how because that would give away the big twist. What I can say is that the book is about best friends, contains a love story, and focuses on the mystery of Nick and the trouble that seems to follow him. I did not guess the answer to the mystery but I was less surprised by the reveal than I was by the twist in the middle!
