"She didn't even like the plaid-shirt-and-jeans, outdoorsy kind of man."
Abby wasn't a mother, but suddenly she had to pretend to be for the safety of her niece and nephew. Their abusive father was out to get them and Abby's sister couldn't help them. If that meant hiding them in a small town with fake names, then so be it. Even if it meant lying to the very attractive Kurt Morgan. Kurt has his hands full dealing with his son as a single father. What he doesn't need is a beautiful woman - a married one at that - distracting him. But he can't help but sense that there is something more to Abby and her kids than they are letting on.
My Opinion: This was a good book with a lot of emotion. The focus on domestic abuse you would normally think would be depressing, but the author does a good job of getting the message across without getting too down. Abby was a great character who works hard to help her niece and nephew. Her feelings are strong and logical. Kurt is a very strong character as well, struggling to help his young son and dealing with falling in love again. The side characters were good and filled in the little town well. Good action scenes and lots of adrenaline as well.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
