This is an emotional story but one I enjoyed very much. Mellie has been through hell in her short life, not once but twice. She’s trying to rebuild her world after it keeps crashing down on her but fate has other ideas. Smith lost everything and has rebuilt himself but the last thing he wants is to ever love anyone again. He’s immediately distraught by his instant attraction to Mellie. She’s his best friend’s little sister so she’d be off limits even if he wasn’t determined to be a loner forever.
There was a lot going on with this plot but Anna Brooks laid it out perfectly. Despite the action and fast pace, there were no plot holes and the story moved at just the right speed. The thriller aspect to this book is phenomenal but I loved the romance also because Smith and Mellie are excellent characters. This was my first book by this author, but I’m definitely going to check out more.
