He made a promise he intends to keep
Harmony Savitt is off-limits for navy SEAL Kyle Bracken. Not only is she his best friend's little sister, she's also a single mother and the widow of a fellow SEAL killed in action. This soldier needs to keep his distance.
But something between them has changed... Despite the new complicated feelings he has for Harmony, when his family comes under attack, there's no one Kyle trusts more than her to help him get answers.
When that threat extends to her and her daughter, though, he vows to protect them...even if it means putting his own heart on the line.
The story leads with charming characters who captivated my heart and were likable, the kind of people you want to spend your time with.
Kyle Bracken and Harmony Savitt had known each other all their lives, they grew up together, they were best friends, they had a unique, special connection that reached to Harmony's daughter as well.
This homecoming for Kyle has a different tune than before, and suddenly the burning feelings between the best friends, Harmony and Kyle, are taking over and the desire they feel for each other is something either can deny.
The story has a mysterious atmosphere from all the secrets the cast of characters is holding. With the loving, warm family connection between everyone, the amount of unrevealed information was staggering. Add to that the mysterious, suspenseful events that are escalating and turning into life and death situations, and the tension ascend.
There are a lot of elements in the story that all demand the reader's attention. I liked the plot, the premises to the story, I found the characters enjoyable to be around. The author's writing style is a bit wordy. She can verbose about a mundane event for so long that I found my thoughts scattering several times. I know some enjoy the poetic kind of storytelling, so this is just my personal little quirk.
A whirlwind of escalating events, a mix of love and desire with old friends and family, small town living, odd, puzzling mysteries, sabotage, and danger create a good, entertaining story
