⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
A story of a woman who needs to start over after a bad break-up and bad luck that followed, and a wounded man who needs his privacy and his secrets to remain secrets.
Hayley West decides to move to Chicago after a bad break-up and takes her ten-year-old niece with her on a road trip. She needs a new beginning after the touch patch she is going through, so she takes her sisters prized mustang and drives to Chicago where she plans to start over, only to run into trouble and get stranded.
Warren For is a man who is hurting and is very private. He was an Army Ranger who moved back home to his small town and is living on the property of his grandmother’s Inn. He has secrets and needs his privacy. He is looking for answers and doesn’t want to be distracted from his task.
I loved this book and the characters were so great. They had that perfect amount of Alpha, sassy, caring, and funny. The story is suspenseful, has twists that you don’t see coming and keeps the pages turning. I love Hayley’s strength and her warm heart she is a woman who has hit bottom and realizes that she is bitter but doesn’t want to be. She wants to be free and light like her niece Tara. Warren has an exterior of a mean, grumpy, miserable person, but he has a huge heart and cares too much.
I give this story a 4.5-star review and recommend it to readers who enjoy stories of suspense, military, and characters who keep you entertained.
