This is book #5 in the Wildstone series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order.
Brynn comes home after another boyfriend makes her feel less than herself. The bright spot in her life is her Mom's. They may be in her business but they bring the fun. Also being at home she runs in to Eli. The very Eli with whom she made the summer deal.
Eli has his hands full with Kinsey and her health. With a breath of fresh air, Brynn comes back to town and its like he can breathe again. With his protective attitude, he enjoys being in both women's lives. Even though he is only best friends with Kinsey, her friendship is more like family.
This story just kind of pounded into my head. I felt like each chapter was a sock to the stomach and was like watching a very loud play. So much action, so much to it, I felt a little overwhelmed. I do not normally say this about this author's books. This was a hard one to finish. Honestly if it was not an author I love well, I would not have bothered. I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
