Synopsis: She’s hiding secrets. For Anna, keeping her deepest scars hidden from the world has always been a necessity—from the bruises of her childhood to the mistake that nearly cost her everything. To keep herself safe, she must keep everyone around her at a distance—especially the man who has tempted her since the moment they met. His demons are taunting him. Mason has done his best to bury the past by achieving more than he ever thought possible. But even with all of his success, his life feels empty. When tragedy strikes, Anna is left fighting to protect the only family she has left. And Mason will do anything to keep her and her loved ones safe—even if that means the ring of wedding bells. But as a new spark ignites between them, someone is watching. And they’ll do whatever it takes to snuff out that light for good.
Review: Talk about tearing my heart out in the best way! I LOVED THIS ONE!! I sincerely enjoy romantic suspense that’s done right, and Catherine Cowles is amazing at writing these books. There is something about characters that have lived through a bunch of difficult experiences, but remain really good people that makes me so invested in them as characters. It also makes their happy ever after that much more satisfying. Mason is definitely going to be added to the book boyfriend list! His pursuit of Anna was so endearing. I enjoyed watching both of them try to figure out how to get past their own trauma responses in the current situations. Anna was such an awesome female lead–she’s just so strong, yet caring, and I really appreciated her as a person. Her hangups were totally valid, and although I wanted her to get over them for her own sake, it was done in a realistic way throughout the book. Anna and Mason’s interactions with her niece and nephew were absolutely precious and added so much to the story. I loved this book. I loved the whole storyline! There was so much going on, but in a way that wasn’t overwhelming and made the happy ever after that much better!! Seriously, read this one if you like romantic suspense, fake relationships, and a tragic backstory.
