⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
He doesn’t let people in. The only people who know why are his teammates and his sister. However, for some reason he can’t seem to ignore the beautiful woman across the street and when he sees her being pushed, he rushes over to make sure she’s okay, only to find out that the one pushing her is her teenage son. Cole is a grumpy, quiet man that doesn’t believe that his heart should be given to anyone.
They can’t stay in one place too long or her ex will bring trouble to them, again. Aria and Zac don’t put down roots, and with them being in Washington for about a year now, Aria knows it’s time to move on, but now that she’s seen the sexy, grumpy, brooding neighbor that saved her, she’s not sure she wants to move again. When danger finds her and Zac again, she knows that she has someone watching her back this time.
I love the Mercy Ring series and was looking forward to Cole and Aria’s story. It did not disappoint. It is full of danger, action, suspense, surprises, and steamy scenes. I love that Zac is a grumpy, broody teenager, but he will stand up and protect his mother when needed. He knows when to step aside and let someone who is more equipped to do it stand in front of him too. I loved this story and the characters as always in Nyssa Kathryn’s books are awesome. I loved the storyline and the twists in this book as well. I give this book a 5-star review and I can’t wait to read Ryker’s story.
