⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Will his family ever see him as more than the kid that lost his scholarship?
Cutter is hiding a lot of emotions and he is trying to find his way through this life.
Cutter Thompson has a past that he can’t seem to outrun but is it only from himself or his loved ones too. Do they still see him as a screw up? When the LSERT is looking for volunteers to go help with the hurricane that is threatening the southern states, Cutter decides to go. He has nothing stopping him from leaving so he may as well go help out where he can. The only thing is that Cutter is not prepared for this trip at all. Not what he will see or how his life will change after this help and rescue mission.
Rowan Baker is just surviving, she’s not living her life. After a devastating tragedy four years ago, she seems to be stuck in her life. When she meets Cutter during the hurricane, her life seems to be brighter. It’s too bad that he lives in Laurel Hill and she lives in Paradise Lost. Their chemistry has them both feeling like life is good and that they can overcome their pasts and find a way to move on.
I really enjoyed this story. It was tragic, scary, and a beautiful story of two people finding a way to move on from their pasts and find their HEA. The characters in Ms. Briscoe’s LSERT series are always great to read and Cutter’s story did not disappoint. They are loyal to each other, kind, and are always willing to do what is needed to make sure that their families are safe and taken care of. These characters are not all family by blood, but they are also family by choice, and it makes for a great tight knit community in Laurel Hills. They keep their community safe and they are always willing to help outside of their own community as well. The devastation and danger that Cutter see’s while in Paradise Lost helps him find his true self and the strength that is hidden deep within himself, as does Rowan. She feels that she is broken and damaged, but she is actually a strong woman who has been dealt a huge blow, but Cutter will show her the path to happiness. He’s so gentle and patient with her, but he is also a force to be reckoned with when needed. I loved this story and give it a 5-star review. I look forward to more of the LSERT family.
