What dictates the path in life we take and who we choose to walk with? After escaping her abusive parents, nineteen-year-old Kenna Sloane is determined to create an independent life, free of emotional distraction. The last thing this focused college student wants is a relationship, especially with a hot rookie cop popular with the badge bunnies. When Kenna reluctantly agrees to a double date with Santa Monica cop Donovan Alexander, she's launched on an exciting and dangerous journey. With time, she discovers some souls are instinctively drawn together to quiet the pain of their traumatic pasts. But even after the revelation of Donovan's own secret burden, Kenna continues to battle the fear she may be too broken for her modern day knight in blue. Can Kenna open her heart to the healing light of true love before peril strikes? Note: This book is written in one point of view. Note: This book is written in first-person point of view.

The story line for Walk With Me isn't bad, but the story itself feels a little rushed at times. The characters are well developed and their love seem believable and real. I was definitely cheering for Kenna to end up happy and successful after learning about her abusive past. Donovan is a modern day Prince Charming, and he lets his emotions and sexiness show during intimate moments. He makes me swoon just a little! Even he has secrets and shares them with Kenna, which makes their relationship stronger.
The climax of the story just didn't do it for me. I kept waiting for something to happen, but it never did until the very end. And then, it was just over. I did like how the author made readers assume the worst of the situation at the end to keep the suspense alive for a few more pages.
The book is good enough that I am interested to read the second book of the series. I would like to see how things end up for Kenna and Donovan and wish them the best of luck.
