My rating: 4 of 5 stars
No shortage of villains in this suspense. From the start we know there is a sadistic ex husband just released from prison, a serial killer and a vandal who is escalating and may be more.
The series is about the Thorne family. Momma Thorne likes to take in those that need to be rescued. She had one biological son and adopted the rest. This series will be about all those sons. First up is Patrick who runs his own construction business and has been having a run of bad luck lately with someone vandalizing his sites. Patrick is also still emotionally recovering from the loss of his wife and unborn child. The last thing he needs is a woman and her child staying at his parent house on the run from an ex who wants to do her harm. But when the ex shows up he wastes no time in stepping up to protect her and they both fight the attraction they feel for the other.
Rachel James’ barely survived her ex-husband and her daughter hasn’t spoken since that last beating. She thought he was going away for a long time but when he is released from prison just 6 months later she knows he is coming for her and her daughter.
There are lots of twist and turns through out like the real reason Rachel’s ex wants her back, the reasons behind the serial killer and saboteur. Through out we meet the other brothers and see the set up for the next book at the end of this one.
