    Some things i liked about this story: Manon was able to find a safe community to be in while she was being stalked by her abusive boyfriend. I loved how they all looked out for her and "had her back". It gave me reason to wonder if I would of would be just as helpful to a stranger. Another thing is the introspection both Manon and Danny needed to go through to decide if either one of them were worthy to be with the other. It did feel a bit drawn out yet it did go to show that it is important to talk about those concerns instead of supposing the other one knows what's going on.My one dislike was the multiple use of the b-d word. I understand that the man was a monster who was stalking Manon, I just wished a different word would of been used.

    When Officer Danny Sherwood got the call that there was an individual traveling at dangerous high speeds, he didn’t realize that when he pulled the suspect over that he would be meeting a woman that would change his life. Manon DuPre is taking no chances and driving as fast as she can to get away from the monster that controls her life and leaves bruises and broken bones in his fury. Afraid for her life, she begs the officer to hide her; afraid her ex-boyfriend would show up any minute and follow through with his threats of killing her. Frightened with nowhere else to turn, Manon couldn’t have chosen a better place to stumble on. With a town full of loving friends willing to protect the new stranger that has come into their lives, and they themselves are no stranger to hiding out and changing their identities to start a new life. Manon takes a new job at a café, changes her name to Mandy Black and finds herself drawn to the officer who has sworn to protect. Full of insecurities and mistrusting it’ll take a village and a few well-placed friends to help Manon discover who she really is and what she has to offer.This is the second book that I have read in the Rainbow Rock Romances series and I was familiar with some of the back stories. You are able to read these books on their own, but it is fun to read the different stories of each of the characters. Susan Aylworth writes a good clean romance and does a great job and developing the characters and bringing them through tough circumstances and helps them to trust and love again.*I received a free ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

    I have mixed feelings about this book. There were things I really enjoyed and things I didn't like. Let's start with the positives :) What I liked: 1) I love how the town rallied around Manon. Small towns can be great and a lot of times in books the focus is more on the negatives than on the positives. In this case, the protectiveness might have been a touch unrealistic, but hey - it's fiction for a reason. 2) Characters. I liked Danny (of course) and I very much enjoyed several of the secondary characters. Manon was a toss-up. I didn't dislike her; I just didn't love her. 3) The topic of repeat abuse was addressed openly and through Manon's counseling sessions with Janelle the author is able to convey some important truths to any readers who might be in similar situations.What I didn't like: 1) Some of the content got a bit much for me. While abuse within a dating relationship is certainly not pretty, we don't necessarily need to go down certain roads to understand how traumatic it actually is. I would have preferred to infer a lot more and "see" a lot less.2) Some of it just felt too contrived. 3) The overuse of the word b-d but very little other cursing. In my opinion, it could have been left out altogether. There are other words that convey the same idea less crudely.(I received a copy of this book in exchange for only my honest review.)

    Danny Sherwood is a patrol officer and a natural protector, and so when he catches Manon DuPre speeding and realizes she is trying to outrun an abusive boyfriend, he immediately helps her. Running from the abusive relationship, Manon doesn't trust easily but the more time she spends with Danny, the more she realizes what a great guy he is. But Manon feels like she can't move on until things with her abusive ex are resolved; she KNOWS he will come after her!I really liked Danny and Manon and I loved Lottie! I had read the 9th book in the series before this one so I already knew Lottie's story. If you enjoyed this book, then you will like the next book in this series, too (Roman's Holiday) - where Lottie and Janelle (the therapist) both get their happily ever after, and we finally learn Lottie's story!Content: Clean, abusive relationship, some swearingSource: Review copy (opinion is 100% my own)

    Manon DuPre is running for her life. When she gets pulled over by Officer Danny Sherwood, circumstances force her to stay put for a while. Danny hears her story and immediately feels protective of her. As Manon quickly becomes a part of this small community, the danger is never far away.Manon grew so much throughout the book. She began to see herself in the way others did. She began to find confidence and worth. There were great lessons for all of us. She and Danny were just cute together! It was great to see their romance blossom. I loved the way the town supported Manon and helped her. The small town spirit was very real!I really enjoyed this book! The romance was good, the suspense continued throughout, all of the characters were relatable…great book!I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    I read Roman's Holiday, the book that follows this one first, and somehow, Danny's Girl doesn't compare so well.While, I empathized with Manon's very real fears about her ex, I thought her dependence was a bit too much. I would have been happier if she found her peace and then went into a relationship with Danny. I would never have advised someone to get into a relationship so early! Also, I found the ending slightly too contrived.I loved how the Rainbow Rock community rallied around Manon and protected her and many of the characters were sweet and memorable.Overall, I liked the book and wish I had read it in the proper sequence.

    ***I received a free copy of this book from "Ebooks for Review" in exchange for my review***I battled over what to rate this book. I enjoyed it...quite a bit. But there were things in it that I didn't agree with. Through most of the book I was thinking 3 stars...maybe even 3.5. But something that happened at the end changed my mind. Don't get me wrong, the excitement of the end was good in my opinion, but there was something that I didn't think was necessary. (Honestly, I thought that Danny was a little more gentlemanly.) Manon DuPre and Danny Sherwood were interesting characters. And I found the "girl-running-from-her-psycho-boyfriend" storyline interesting. The fact that Manon worked for, and roomed with, Danny's ex-girlfriend caused some giggle-worthy moments and caused me to laugh several times. (Hehe.) Having come from an abusive home himself, Danny is a protector and that made for some sweet moments. The all-over happy, community feel of Rainbow Rock made me smile. And I may or may not have cried at *spoiler removed* funeral. :'( Something I didn't like was how Manon leans so much on Danny when running from her ex-boyfriend, Ingo. Yes, Danny would do anything to protect her, but she needed to turn to God ultimately. Only HE can truly protect her, fill her with his love, and show her her true worth. I loved certain lines like..."chew railroad ties and spit nails." "The kind of guy who cries at sunsets and rescues puppies from the pound." "Zuzu's petals." (Because "It's a Wonderful Life" is an epic movie that everyone should watch and know by heart, like those who quoted it in this book. xD) And the Dr. Seuss quote - "Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened." As far as content goes, this book wasn't what I would call "clean". There were several cuss words, some kissing scenes that were way over the top, and an attempted rape. I'm sorry to say, I can't recommend this book, even though parts of it (maybe even most of it?) was enjoyable.

    I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. In this book we meet Trooper Danny Sherwood and Manon DuPre. Manon is on the run from her violent ex-boyfriend she was sure if she didn't get away from him right away. So while going down the highway at speeds over 100 miles per hour she is sure when she is pulled over by Danny that he will find her and kill her. Little did Manon know that she got pulled over in just the right town. If she will allow herself the chance she might find love again. She will also find friendship and protection that she never knew could be possible from strangers. She just hopes this last long enough to keep her safe and possibly even find that HEA she was searching for the first time around. Danny knows he is a man how wants a wife and kids someday, he so far just hasn't found that woman that makes him want to take that step. Then he meets Manon during a traffic stop and there is just something about her that makes him want to protect her and make her his. The problem is he doesn't want to pusher her away but the more he learns about Ingo the more he believes this beautiful woman might really be in some serious danger. If only he can keep her safe long enough for her to trust him and want to be with him for the long run. This is an amazing book with many ups and downs that will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. There is so much that happens in this story that I want to tell you about but as a reader I hate to have a book spoiled for me. So I will just say it should be on everyone's must read list.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.This is the first book that I've read in the Rainbow Rock Series and the first book I've read by Susan Aylworth. I have to say it won't be the last. I really enjoyed this book. Although it didn't make my absolute favorite list, I still thoughrly enjoyed this read and will definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series."Manon DuPre is running for her life and officer Sherwood stands in her way". Danny Sherwood is a trooper with the Arizona state patrol, and when is called upon to stop a dangerous speeder, he has no idea that it may change his life. Manon DuPre is running for her life. She has spent the past year in the clutches of an evil, horrible man and she has no idea that the chance meeting with Officer Sherwood will change everything...I loved the plot line of this story, girl running for her life, brave officer standing up to protect her. The story was fast moving even if it was a little long. Nevertheless, there was still an unexpected twist towards the end that made the ending exciting and enjoyable. If you're looking for a lightly suspenseful, cute romance story then give this book a try! I stayed up way to late reading it!Also, this is a clean read in my opinion with no explicit sences etc.All in all a very enjoyable read!

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Danny’s Girl is part of the Rainbow Rock Romance series. Warning: domestic violence triggers. Manon DuPre grew up in the best private schools with an uncaring family. Although she is well educated, she makes a tragic mistake of falling in love with the wrong person. Ingor takes control of Manon’s life slowly, so slowly she doesn’t even realize he’s done it until it is too late. She manages to escape the abusive relationship with the help of her part-time employer, Greta. She is literally running for her life when she is stopped by Arizona state trooper, Danny Sherwood for speeding. Manon is in a panic and tells Danny that she is being chased by a monster. Although Danny has some doubt about Manon’s story, he decides to listen to her. He takes her to the Kuchina Café to feed her and Lottie ends up offering her a job and a place to live. Lottie notices the sparks between Danny and Manon but she is completely over Danny so she is fine with it. It just takes Manon and Danny much longer to acknowledge them. When Ignor follows Manon’s trail, the whole community of Rainbow Rock come together to protect her. A great part of the series but also a wonderful standalone novel. I would recommend for any fans of the Rainbow Rock romance series or for any fans of clean romance novels.

    This wonderful romance is the 8th book in the Rainbow Rock Series. Manon finally escapes the clutches of her controlling, abusive boyfriend, buys an old clunker car, and literally speeds across the country, trying to get as far away from Ingo and San Francisco as possible. As Manon speeds along I-40 going East, Danny Sherwood, highway patrolman, gets a call about a speeding car. When Manon enters Danny’s jurisdiction, he flips on his lights and pulls her over. When he gets to the car in front of him, Manon is crying, is hysterical with fear, and begs Danny to let her go before Ingo catches her and kills her. Danny can see that the beautiful woman he pulled over is sincerely terrified. Unfortunately, her car has some serious issues. Danny puts Manon in the back of his car and takes her into protective custody while his father, DJ, a mechanic, checks out her car. The car is almost a total loss, needing many repairs. Danny takes Manon to the Kuchina for some dinner and Lottie gives her a job and place to stay while she waits for her car. Danny assures Manon she will be safe here with Lottie but Manon assumes the name Mandy, just in case. I read the 9th book in the series, Roman’s Holiday, before this book so I knew how it would end, but the book was well written and the characters likable (or despicable in Ingo’s case). I recommend reading the series in order.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Danny’s Girl is the second book in the Rainbow Rock Romances Series that I have read, though this one happens before the one I have read. For the record, reading the series out of order was not a problem in the slightest. I didn’t feel confused or like I was missing something at all. It was just getting another chance to see characters that featured more prominently in other books. Part of why this works so well is that even though I loved reading about the main characters of this book, I loved the people of the town better- it even feels almost as if it is a character itself. Part of me wishes I could live in this town…the rest of me wants to be close to Barnes and Noble and Target. More specific to the plot (I don’t want to give anything away) I’d have to say that I appreciated how everyone responded to Manon and her less than desirable situation. And not just in their willingness to help, but how people like Danny, Lottie, and Janelle helped her to understand and get passed the abuse she had recently lived through. I thought that they felt genuine, and honestly I wish more people could react the way that they did.

    I'm a little conflicted with the rating of this book. It was well written and the story flowed (albeit a bit longer that I would have liked), but there were elements that jolted me out of the story and made it less desirable.What I liked: I loved the town folk. This is my first read in this series of eight novels and the author did a nice job making this a stand-alone yet I guessing continuing the "whole story". Although it was predictable for the most part, I felt the story-line flowed nicely. The author did a nice job with the 'instant' chemistry between the leads. What I didn't like: The two main characters seemed to turn from reasonable people to just unrealistic at the end of the book. I felt it completely unbelievable that Manon was ready for any kind of a relationship. For me, the scene of confrontation at the jail in the end of the book bordered on just mean spirited. I really didn't like how it was handled.Overall I liked the story. I just couldn't really like it.Rating: 3 starsContent: mild language, violence, both situational and abuse thematic, rape (very minimally described), kissingSource: ebooksforreview

    This is the second book I have read, but it comes before the other story....which meant I know how the story ends up. That said, I enjoyed this story anyway! If you are looking for a clean romance set in a beautifully described corner of the southwest, this is one for you. Rainbow Rock is a small town off the old Route 66. The characters are reminiscent of those from Mayberry or Walnut Grove. Small towns where everyone knows each other and they watch out for them like family.Danny is a cop with the desire to protect other people. Manon is on the run. Literally. She is hiding from an abusive boyfriend who she is sure is chasing her. When she gets pulled over by Danny, her only thought is getting back on the road to try and get to safety. Her car needs work before she can continue on her trip, but Danny's protective nature isn't the only reason he wants her to stay.A cute, if predictable romance. The series doesn't have to be read in order, but are a lot more fun to read in order!

    This is book 8 of the Rainbow Rock Romance series. I haven't read any of the others so I'm not sure if I would have gotten more character development from reading the other books or not. I liked the town, townspeople, and the atmosphere it portrayed. I really liked the state trooper character named Danny. He was strong, compassionate and seemed like a great leader and friend. He falls in love with a woman named Manon after he rescues her from an abusive boyfriend. The story had a good steady plot which kept my interest although its not typically a story line I would have liked to read. It dealt with alot of sensitive subjects like neglect, sexual abuse, emotional and physical abuse. There was some language through out the book, but no sexual scenes. No recommended for young adult readers. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review on my blog and social media-all opinions are my own.

    This was a lovely clean romance that takes place in a small town.This is the 8th novel in this series but I hadn't read any of the others. This was a pretty good stand alone but I assume if I had read the other books first some of the side characters would have meant more to me. The two main characters are a bit wooden and less three dimensional than I would have liked. Manon was the scared girl that needs to be protected and helped. Danny was the protector. Everyone seemed to have their one emotion and that was it. The romance felt forced. They just each just are attracted to each other and then they spend the entire time talking about their relationship. It was a bit tedious like constantly having that "define the relationship" talk.While it was an alright read it didn't make me want to rush out and read the other books in the series.***I received this book free in exchange for my review****

    I read the book after this not realizing I would have enjoyed it more if I’d read it in order. Manon gets pulled over for speeding and pleads with the officer for help. He’s skeptical about what kind of help she needs, but offers it anyway. She is desperate to escape her crazy abusive boyfriend and finds herself hiding in Rainbow Rock until she can come up with a new plan. I really liked Danny, who sweeps in to save the day and encourages the town to do the same. Manon is likeable, and slowly crawls out of the destructive hole her ex-boyfriend put her in. Since I had recently read the story about Lottie, I honestly put her in the limelight most of the time. A couple of words that I don’t prefer to read were used, and her abusive past was spoken of, but not in a graphic manner, just didn’t necessarily add to the story either. I would have liked to see her stand a bit more on her own two feet before the quick resolution at the end.

    Love happens where and when and with who you least expect. When coming out of an abusive relationship, the last thing you need is an authority figure. But that is exactly who Manon runs into – Deputy Danny Sherwood. She has no idea who she can trust or where she can turn. She has little faith left in society, and especially in men. Can they resolve their differences enough to see if their electric chemistry will go anywhere? This novel brought a lot of important issue to light. You never know what another person is going through or has lived through. It doesn’t matter their financial status, their race, religion, or even their nationality, we have all lived through things that we would rather forget. Caring and loving each other is the way that we can make the world a better place. Rainbow Rock sounds like a great place to live.

    Danny is awesome! He is handsome, has a town of friends, and a loving family. He has a major protective gene. It is that protective gene that has him originally take Manon under his wing. Manon has a boat load of issues due to abusive relationships with her folks and a past relationship. The book looks at abuse and counseling. But it also has a nice romance. I have been reading this series but not in order. So I knew some of the characters already. I like that the book is set in a small town that looks after each other. I like that Manon is self-reliant especially when it counts most. Lottie and the counselor also help bring this story to life. Overall I liked the story with memorable characters set in a nice part of the country. I thought it was a good story. And the pies make my mouth water.I did receive this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I've read books like this before, where the girl is fleeing from a psychotic abusive boyfriend and finds love in the arms of the person who saves her and I've thought "yeah, ok. Any woman who is fleeing a psycho isn't going to trust any man any time soon." But I didn't feel that way about this one. The author gives the girl time to trust again, and to warm up to the idea of love again. It didn't feel forced like it has in other books. Manon is a girl just driving as far and as fast as she can to get away from her ex. Her car breaks down in the little town of Rainbow Rock, and Danny, the police officer, comes to her rescue. She can't figure out how her ex continues to find her, even though she has turned her phone off and basically dropped off the map. The book was exciting, and easy to read. I enjoyed it very much.I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    If you like hero’s you’ll love this book. It reads in some ways like a murder mystery or thriller, in other ways it is purely a love story. The circumstances of the lead character or heroine are slowly revealed. As aspects of her circumstances become apparent, the reader’s view of her slowly changes. In matters of domestic violence, there is often a level of misunderstanding. People who do horrific things can seem perfectly normal and reasonable at times. Even those suffering abuse may think themselves deluded as to the level or severity of the crime, but this is often an effect of the emotional circumstance they find themselves in. This story is commendable for the way that it draws the reader into the mind of the characters, leaving us reflecting on deeper matters than we first expected.

    This book is the 8th book in a series about people in Rainbow Rock,Arizona. The book can be a stand alone. I have not read the other books in this series before this book. I was easily able to follow the story line. Danny is a peace officer and events in his life has made him a natural protector. Manon is running from an abusive boyfriend and ends up in Rainbow Rock. Danny helps her find a job and a place to live. There is instant attraction between the two that turns to love as they get to know each other. Manon is welcomed by the people of the town and after some counseling session decides she is done running. There are a few times when the main characters thinking is a little messed up but it is corrected fairly simply and they move on. This was an enjoyable read and I will probably read more books in the series.

    I was given a copy of this book free for an honest review. This is the first book in the series I've read so far but I'm sure it wont be the last now that I've had a sample.I enjoyed the story and the plot was a good one. It was a quick read for me. It keeps you wanting to read till the end. The charters are all friendly and kind to a stranger in need of help. The kind of folks ya wanna get to know yourself to have as a friend. The book is clean as far as descriptions of rape and beatings go nothing explicit in the details that would make you cringe or fearful if your sensitive to that kind of thing. No sex at all and some mild language but that doesn't bother me.I was a little disappointed with the quick ending of the book. Not as much detail as I would have liked at the end. Overall a nice read though.

    3.5 stars. I recently read "Roman's Holiday" and didn't realize at first that this book occurs right before that one, so I wished at times I had read this one first. But I did enjoy this book a little more than "Roman's Holiday" -- it didn't feel so much like a travel guide.This story focuses on a young woman who is trying to escape an abusive boyfriend and finds shelter and help in a little Arizona desert town. I liked learning a little about the psychology of abusive relationships and thinking about the reasons why some women have a harder time leaving. I liked how the residents of the town helped and watched out for each other. I liked both of the main characters and how they came to care for and help each other. Overall, an enjoyable read!I received a free e-book copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewThis was a very sweet romance. Set in a small town in Arizona, Danny is a cop who pulls Manon over when she is escaping from an abusive boyfriend. Danny was a good character, very noble and honorable. He led a very simple life in the small town as a state trooper. He was a family man who hoped some day he would find love with someone who could live with his career. Manon is a strong woman who flees a bad situation. She was very brave to walk away and ask for help from complete strangers. She portrayed a sweet personality that all the people around her had no choice but to love her and welcome her in. They all stood by her to protect her.This was definitely a sweet easy read romance. Very clean, no naughty stuff. You can't go wrong reading this story!

    I loved reading Danny’s Girl because it shows us how the world could be. It shows us how a community can come together to protect a stranger and to take other in no questions asked. Manon is running for her life from an abusive and controlling boyfriend. She gets pulled over in a small community in Arizona and is forced to stay because her car dies. The community shows Manon that she can trust people again. They band together to protect her when the ex comes looking for her. Manon also has many things she needs to overcome so that she can learn to love and trust again. I did like this book because it makes you feel good about how the community comes together to protect one of their own. I wish more places in the world were like this!I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Danny’s girl was a fun story to read. It follows Danny (a state trooper) and Manon (didn’t really care for this name) – a girl on the run from an obsessed and controlling boyfriend. I really liked the growth of Manon throughout the story. Her working out her issues and learning about herself and her worth was good. Danny is the super sweet protective type that never wants anything bad to happen to anyone. I have never been in an obsessive abusive relationship before, but I would hope that Manon’s boyfriend was a complete work of fiction. He was a bit extreme for me. I think most crazy guys like that would maybe try a little bit to get the girl back, but not to the extremes he did. Overall I enjoyed this book. It had a little bit of suspense and of course romance. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    When Manon flees from her abusive boyfriend, she meets Danny right when she needs him the most.What I liked about this book is that although it is the 8th book in a series, it can be read as a stand alone book. So, when a reader like me comes along, who HASN'T read the previous books, I don't feel completely out of the loop. I also enjoyed the serious tones that were addressed: coming from an abusive relationship, dealing with negligent parents, etc. Each of these is handled respectfully.I would have liked it more if the storyline hadn't felt rushed towards the end. The relationship between Manon and Danny felt like it went back and forth a lot, and then suddenly: happy ever after.I was provided with a free copy from eBooks For Review, and all opinions are my own.

    Danny’s Girl by Susan Aylworth is a deep romantic novel. It is set in Rainbow Rock, along with other novels of Aylworth, an idealistic but happening community based on the intriguing citizens and travelers that pass by and stay. The characters of Danny and Manon are strong and full of passion. The story is woven around abuse in their past relationships and is heavily dwelt upon. I enjoyed the characters growth, but often felt as an observer rather than immersed with them. I would have preferred a better built up of their connection. Aylworth however, gave us many twists and kept the story realistic. I will gladly return to Rainbow Rock for more novels, simply to enjoy its fun characters.
