I haven’t had super strong feeling about Max in the previous book of this series one way or another.  Holy cow!  I love, love, love Max!  What a good soul he has.

There is such a thing as being too independent.  Case in point, Jules.  She’s a strong and loving woman, but she takes way too much on when she doesn’t have to.  I’m sure part of that is how she grew up and all of her responsibilities.  But she’s become blinded to the difference between asking for and accepting help and being needy.  Man, that woman had to be hit over the head with it before she realized it was okay to have a partner she could rely on.

As I already said, Max is wonderful.  Although he wasn’t one of the players who slept with any puck bunny he ran across, he also wasn’t necessarily looking to settle down and have an instant family.  Once he saw Jules and learned the things she had sacrificed (without looking at any of it as a sacrifice) he was a goner.  The two of them truly are a perfect fit.  Max is the type of man who is made to care for and nurture those around him.  While Jules also has these attributes, she is also great at getting things done.  They’re both extremely hard workers but Max makes Jules stop and smell the roses once in a while and Jules keeps everything running like a machine.

Jules may have driven me crazy with her resistance to Max’s financial help, but I’m also glad this story wasn’t the case of the hero swooping in and fixing everything while the “damsel” just sits back and lets him.  Jules is a wonderful heroine and a spectacular role model.

I absolutely adore the Cold Fury family, I never want this series to end!

FYI: This book runs parallel with book #5, Hawke.  But don’t worry, although they run on the same timeline there isn’t a lot of repetition.
