Amy and Ranger can’t fight the attraction between them any longer. But one fateful night cleaves their new found love in two…
Can they find the will to fight for true love? Or will an evil so shocking destroy their lives for good?

So I went down a hole of Lindsay Cross’ books, I have read Rebellious River and Redemption River and I loved them, they were so good. I had very high expectations of this series and now and wow this exceeded expectations. I was stunned this book blew me out the water. So many emotions ran through me when reading this book and wow. It was such a fantastic and emotional read!

I really liked Amy’s character, at times she did annoy me with her ‘I can’t be with Ranger’ but I understood those feelings she had. Especially when you meet her horrible mother in law. I liked the progress we see Amy going through from accepting the loss of her husband and then feeling like she can be happy with Ranger and her baby. I loved that. Amy is also very fiery!

Ranger, he was the best, I think he’s my favourite character out of the Men of Mercy series so far. He was just dreamy and so protective and just really loyal to Amy, even when she didn’t want him there he was always willing to be there. I loved how willing he was to help look after baby Chloe. It was just all so cute!

I was so glad that Amy had Cher, Evie, Hunter and Ranger by her side because her mother in law Mavis was absolutely disgusting within the first two chapters I was fuming. The comments she made to Amy were beyond disgusting like if that was me I would have smacked her so hard. She made Amy feel terrible for trying to move on with her life and be happy. It just felt like Mavis didn’t want that for her and just wanted to destroy Amy every time she built herself up.

There are like two mavis twists in this story and I did not see them coming. My thought through these twists was what the fuck? I had to reread the last twist about 5 times because I just couldn’t believe it. Lindsay managed to write it perfectly and honestly, I think it is quite possibly the best thing I’ve read. I can’t go into what I wanted to about one of these twists because it ruins the book so if you read this story inbox me so I can talk about this twist. It still eats me up inside like it was an amazing twist, like my permanent mood for this is what the fuck?
