This story was way more heart-warming than I expected it to be.  I expected to enjoy the story (Catherine Bybee is a solid author and hasn’t let me down yet), I expected to find steam and warm-fuzzies, I expected to get a HEA.  But my goodness, I didn’t expect Carter to melt my heart.

First, we never see Carter as a playboy.  There’s not a revolving door on his bedroom or bitter ex-girlfriends.  He has political aspirations so, although he’s very attractive and catches the eye of many women, he keeps his reputation all above-board.  But it’s not an act.  Carter is a really great guy all around.

Eliza is a smart cookie and knows how to be a friend without making it obvious she isn’t sharing her own secrets.  Luckily, she has some great people in her life who understood why she kept those secrets and then went above and beyond to help and protect her.

The fire between Carter and Eliza is HOT!  Then, as they settle into their new relationship, it becomes sweet and beautiful.  Above all, it seemed so natural for them to be together.  They fell into an easy rhythm with each other and it was a delight.

There were little hints (and some not so little hints) throughout of the next book.  I’m looking forward to reading Neil and Gwen’s HEA and getting a look at how her brother and everyone else will react to the pairing.
