Love at first sight is a myth to aspiring journalist Melissa Williams, but when she meets Jason McAlister at a friend's wedding, a Cinderella-like fantasy turns her no-nonsense world upside down. She sees in his penetrating blue eyes not just an evening, but a lifetime together that includes much more than a glass slipper and a kiss.
Realizing she shared a few salacious emails with Jason months ago, a humiliated Melissa loses herself in the crowd, thankful he doesn't know who she is. But he does know—and with a gentle touch and a steamy kiss, he soon picks up their flirtation right where it left off.
As midnight strikes, Melissa succumbs to Jason's sexy pull, unaware that a woman's body has been discovered in the wake of the party. When evidence points to Melissa as the killer's next target, the lines between fantasy and reality blur. She goes into hiding, charmed by one mysterious man and hunted by another.
Cinderella lost a shoe—Melissa could lose both her handsome prince and her life.

WHIRLWIND is just that – a whirlwind of romance, mystery and fun. We get caught up in the events that take place as Melissa Williams is being stalked by a murderer, having fantasies of a happily ever after and learning to deal with the past.
As Melissa is wrapping up the end of college with her best friend Mitch's wedding, she discovers that love at first sight may not be a total myth. Saddened by the realization that Mitch will no longer be around and feeling sorry for herself, she looks into Jason McAlister's eyes for the first time and she sees a future there. But she chalks it up to fantasy and wishful thinking as she knows Jason will be heading back across country at the end of the week. And somehow she gets herself put in the cross hairs of a killer who now isn't only after her but Jason as well.
I loved the duality of Melissa as her "naughty" side was awakened by Jason McAlister, the best man and brother of the groom. I was actually giggling when Jason was asking for "naughty Melissa" to come out or not to come out to play. Jason is sweet, charming and handsome, but thank goodness some flaws were found as all too perfect doesn't cut it.
The couple is fun and flirty and the book is not overly sexed, but steamy and romantic. I found the interactions between all the characters were fresh and believable. I only had one eye-roll moment and honestly I would have rolled my eyes not matter which book those particular words were written in.
Robin DeJarnett weaves a story that puts you right in the center of the action with her fast paced story and witty writing you can't help but turn the page to read what happens next.
