Oh my goodness, where to begin! This was an amazing read. Let me start there. Even without all of the suspense it would have been awesome. Marlowe is a Colton and Bowie is her archical. Not even just hers, their fathers have been rivals for years. So you know they are the last couple that should end up together. Yet, for one night they let everything go and find themselves in each other’s arms. A night that is the just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Colton family problems.
Their night together has left Marlowe pregnant and as she begins to wrap her head around that her family is dropped a bomb. One member of the family isn’t actually a member of the family. Bowie has his own issues and thinking Marlowe is behind them he confronts her only to discover that she is pregnant.
Sounds like a lot right? Well there also the matter of someone trying to kill one or the both of them that needs to be resolved as well. We are left with a bit of cliffhanger but not in Marlowe and Bowie’s relationship. It’s more about the family issues which is something that will carry over into other books.
Two characters I didn’t like Payne, Marlowe’s father, although he does redeem himself a bit by the end, and Selina her ex-stepmother. This chick is one that I wanted to punch several times. I swear I think she is behind a whole of the mess but I’m also not sure because she almost seems too easy of culprit. If you like romance and suspense then this is the read for you. I enjoyed it so much that I actually purchased books two and three to find out what happens. I will give you those reviews so as I also have book four or five already on my schedule.
