I truly adore Marina Adair’s books. As much as I am a fan of being rational and talking things out, there is something about her peripheral characters that are jerks that piss me off yet keep me reading. In this case it is Mrs. Easton. That lady is a piece of work and really made me want to throttle her. She treated the heroine, Darcy, like a common criminal and trash in the past yet couldn’t understand why Darcy would keep things from her. Although I never felt the hero, Gage, took his mom’s side his other brothers definitely seemed to and it drove me nuts.

I can’t say I totally agree with all of Darcy’s decisions, but she was doing what she felt was best for her child. I can’t fault her for that, especially after meeting Margo Easton. I guess I can’t even be mad at her initial reactions to Gage since it was all in Momma Bear mode.

Gage started out always trying to be diplomatic with his family and slowly seemed to grow a backbone as the story progressed. He still ticked me off when he wouldn’t tell his mom off, but tried to forgive him since it was his mom.

I actually almost gave this one 5 stars but felt the ending was a bit abrupt. There was a lot left unresolved, which is mostly fine since it’s the first in a series. Don’t misunderstand…this is NOT a cliff-hanger. There are just a lot of side stories going on that need to be told. And even though Ms. Adair’s website says the next book comes out in October, it’s not listed on Goodreads or Amazon at this time.

4 stars
