This was a very emotional Donovan story. I love the turn about with Max running proving men are not scared to show and act out when they are hurt.

This series just keeps getting better. As I read each book I can sense the increased development of this authors craft. Max is a man with a tortured soul because of something that happened in his past, while Deena is a free spirit. The ups and downs of their eventual HEA were a pleasure to read. As usual the author also added just enough information about other characters to wet our appetites for another book.

This was a very touching love story. Maxwell's secret was a true test of love and Deena passed the test. What would you sacrifice to be with the one you love?

I was a little disappointed in the drama that came with this story. Deena seemed like a girl that should have had a little better experience in the realm of love. Max had me wanting to take a very big stick to him and beat him down real good. He needed some sense beat into him. It took a near fatal event to bring him to his senses but it was almost too late. You must read to see what I am mean. Deena and Max were able to rise to the challenge. With love most obstacles can be overcome.

Whoa! I shed many tears reading this book. This is easily my favorite of the series. Although it started off a bit shaky, by the end I was sad for the book to end. Max was beautifully flawed, and although I wanted to wring his neck several times in the book, I understood his hesitance to begin a relationship. But thankfully, he and Deena were able to make it work. I will be recommending this one.

Loved this story. Max and Deena were so good for each other I'm so glad they finally found true love and their happy ending.
