She doesn’t believe true love is real.
He thinks he’s too broken for love.
Everything changes when two stubborn hearts meet.
On the run from her ex-husband’s twisted family, Finley seeks help from Jaxon Hudson, the Navy SEAL who rescued her three years ago. Even though she only knew him for a few hours, it was long enough for her to fall in love. But Jaxon’s imminent deployment squashed any hope of a relationship, and he walked away, taking a piece of her heart with him.
Now Finley is older and wiser and not looking for love. So when Jaxon proposes a marriage of convenience and offers the protection of his name, but not his heart, Finley accepts the terms.
There’s only one problem, the spark they had three years ago never died out...placing her in danger of falling for him all over again.
Woot! It's a new book by Cindy Roland Anderson! This feels like a good reason to celebrate today!
Finley and Jaxon have a lot going on and a lot to unpack personally. While there were some heavy issues facing them, I never felt bogged down myself and I am grateful for that. For me, right now, I appreciate having depth to characters and knowing they are real people with real problems but I don't want to dwell there. I'm looking for an escape in reading- romance and hope and happily ever afters. This book gave me that.
There was an initial spark for both Finley and Jaxon upon first meeting. Years later Finley is desperate for help and turns to one person she hopes can help her. Then, lots of sparks! I loved the added layer of light suspense in this book- it was perfect for this story. It really helped drive the feelings between Finley and Jaxon forward quickly. It's swoony and exciting. I loved the feelings of family and I loved having a little baby in the mix. It all just felt wonderful around my heart. I am really drawn to these romantic, light suspense books. It's one of my favorite genres and this book was perfect for me to read this week. I loved it.
This book is on KU if you have that. Also, it is technically the second book in this Hudson family of brothers, but each book can stand on it's own.
