My full review.

What works here, like it did in A Week to Be Wicked , is that these characters, so different in many ways, compliment each other so perfectly. Finding that comfortable fit, though, takes work. And it is a rough go. Thorne is hiding secrets and Kate is searching for a family. He thinks that he must protect her by pushing her away and she wants nothing more than to escape into the warmth of his arms (and, as we learn, they are warm, strong, capable arms).

Here’s a thing about me that explains what I love about this book: I like when characters admit to liking each other right from the get go, when there is so side-stepping around those emotions. The conflict isn’t about revealing how they feel about one another but rather from dealing with external forces and interior emotions that block them from being able to commit. And this is true here.
