Love it when a man who has taken a few knocks in life still stands true to the honor ingrained in him no matter what life throws at him. Sawyer is what I would would call a humble Dom. Loved all his sides.
When we met Sawyer Ware in his brother Atticus book, he was serving time for manslaughter. After being medically discharged from the Navy Seals he was having a hard time adjusting and suffering from PTSD and fell asleep at the wheel killing his buddy. At the start of this book he has been out of prison for 5 weeks trying to put his life back together. One thing he notices is the white supremacist group that kidnapped his brother’s woman in the previous book now have a greater presence in the small mountain town and seem to have revenge on their mind with his brother being at the top of their list.
Mallory McCabe was an interesting heroine. Raised on a commune and able to read aura’s and then later lived with her Grandpa who taught her all the in’s and out’s of construction she’s like a mix of free spirit, confident business owner all while waiting for her hero to ride in on a white horse. She thinks that man is Sawyer when she meets him but after a night a lovemaking like she’s never experienced before he walks away shattering that dream.
There is so much going on in this book – and I mean that in a good way.. Sawyer starts of as the town outcast at the beginning but by the end with help from new friends and his woman they take back their town from the rift raft that’s invaded it. Along the way Sawyer gains his confidence back in himself. All of the characters from the Mountain Masters series play huge parts in this book and when there is a story detour to Dark Haven all those past characters make appearances. It was like Christmas, getting all my favorite characters in one book.
I am hoping there are more stories to come in this series as Morgan and Wyatt Masterson and Hector Ware need their stories told..
