Regan Black writes stories about strong independent women caught up in circumstances where they are forced to accept help. Her latest, Protecting Her Secret Son, is no exception. Daniel and Shannon are her latest pair caught up in circumstances beyond their control; good thing the Escape Club provides them the support they need.

While on leave from the PDFD, Daniel Jennings is picking up shifts at the Escape Club run by ex-Philadelphia cop, Grant Sullivan. Although he loves his job as a firefigh

This was an enjoyable story with just the right mix of action and romance! I just adored Daniel, and he made a great hero. He has certainly met his match with Shannon, a tough and independent single mom who has been through a lot. They have a sweet romance, and it was fun to watch it grow. The action in this story starts off right from the very beginning, but the pacing is spot on and kept me engaged. Aidan was also adorable and provided some great comic relief!

Overall, a very enjoyable read!

This series sure is a roller coaster ride. I read the other books before this one and they were all really really good. I just knew this one was going to be as good as the others. You have an amazing single mom and an amazing firefighter that just work so well together. Lots of mystery, suspense, a little romance and lots of twists and turns make this an excellent book as far as I am concerned.
