Vic McCabe has come a long way over the years, he is a successful contractor and developer, but there is something missing in his life. He holds almost everyone at a distance, but after the one mistake in his life when he was a teenager, he isn't about to let anyone get close to him again. When a determined reporter shows up at his office wanting to know about the past, she won't take no for an answer, and when she worms her way into his house, he lets her know that what happened in the past is off limits, it's not his story to tell and he refuses to let it hurt anyone again. To prevent the story from going to press, he has to find someone from his past, someone who doesn't want to be found. Don't Stop Me is the story of Vic years after a tragic incident that changed everyone's lives. Author Lorhainne Eckhart melds a classic bad boy, good girl, misunderstanding story into a completely modern and current romance.

Don't Stop Me is a well written story that develops in the wake of 9/11 and the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York. It cold easily be a true-life story, in that is plays into the the fears of people in that time period and the overzealousness of some to bring someone, anyone to justice, and to make someone pay, even if they had nothing to do with anything. Author Lorhainne Eckhart wrote a wonderful story that will tug at your heartstrings, and maybe make you rethink some positions on people. I found the book to be a good story, but my own sensitive nature, dislike of racial and ethnic profiling, and background in seeing some of these things occur to friends in college, made it difficult for me to read. It just came too close to real life for me to be comfortable, but at the same time, I think it would be a great book to make someone who has never experienced anything of the sort think about what can happen. Not sure what the author has planned for the next books in the McCabe brothers series, but even with my issues reading this one, I look forward to finding out.
