4.5 stars

I thought the author handled the taboo subject of falling for your brother/sister in law perfectly. The struggles and emotions between Know and Eden were real, raw and at times overwhelming.

Knox is a retired MMA fighter who now owns a successful business. To Knox, Eden was the one who got away. He's feelings didn't diminish when she married his brother nor when his brother died unexpectedly. He's supported her as friends and emotionally during her mourning period. He's reserved in showing his feelings for her but the are simmering just below the surface.

Eden didn't have an easy child or young adulthood. She's always relied on herself and when she met Connor her world became his. She and Connor were still in their honeymoon phase when his life ended. She's struggled for the past 2 years but now she's ready and willing to start a new chapter in her life.

Eden has taken control of herself. I liked that she was the aggressor and wasn't willing to give up on Knox because he was her brother in law. She owned up to her feelings. Eden was always sweet but she had two different personalities with these men. Watching her grow as a partner to Knox helped these two forge a bittersweet romance.

At times the story was a bit repetitive. Eden and Knox had a lot of internal debates that last throughout the book. His family was also another challenge that these two had to overcome. There was a little drama with his mother but it was handled with care.

Overall it was a worth while romance. One that will stay with you long after you're done reading it.
