This book took off right from the beginning and kept me interested all the way through. It was exciting and had me tearing up in quite a few spots too. I absolutely loved how this story involved the whole family. They were just so caring for each other. I can't forget to mention all the hunky brothers and friends. The few love scenes were done well with some good heat to them and nothing over the top. I could feel the need that the H&h had for each other and how tortured they were over the past.

So yes, I really did like this book but not quite enough to give it 5 stars. Some of the things that happened in this book just plan out should not have happened. Also getting the bad guy could have been done with more imagination. I wanted to read about how he got caught not just the mention of it happening. That would have added some more excitement to the ending.

All and all it was a good book and I'm sure to read the next book in this series soon.

SheLove2Read I agree with you. The 2nd and 3rd books are much better however. I hated the hero in this one myself. I thought he was a first class SOB.
