Shocking discoveries rock the Adairs...and a determined librarian can't help falling for one of this dynasty's rugged heroes!
‘Money can’t buy happiness’...so true! Librarian Georgia Mason has seen one wealthy Adair ruin her stepmother’s life and swears she won’t get involved with his son Carson. So what if he’s a hot ex-special ops soldier who showers her with extravagant gifts? But he is the sexiest man she ever met and it’s hard to hate him for searching for his long lost stepbrother or tracking down the traitor behind his botched mission. And when Georgia faces life-threatening danger, Carson protects her, igniting their scorching passion. Maybe love of money isn’t the root of all evil, Georgia thinks. Maybe there’s more to Carson to trust, respect...and love.
Unsolved mysteries and family in despair.
I enjoyed the suspense side of this story. There was action, mysteries, no obvious culprits, and enough plot twists and unexpected elements to keep the story going and interesting. Now, since this is an ongoing series, some of the mysteries still are not solved, and that left few questions and curiosity in my mind.
Carson is dealing with having to leave the marines, injury to his leg, death of his father, possibly murdered by his mother, and having to decide what to do with the rest of his life, and if he wanted to follow his father's steps into the corporate world - enough stress for one?! But still he was a stand up guy, considerate, nice, friendly, generous, just easy to like, very charming.
Georgia, oh Georgia... She might be one of the most cantankerous heroines I have run into. She was prejudiced, judgmental, and subjective. Her dislike towards 'rich people' went overboard and was ridiculous. Her judging anyone with more money than she had, by one person's story about couple people, was irritating after a while. Cause it came up again and again. And again.
Carson was patient with Georgia, and more tolerant than expected. He wanted her, and liked her, despite her judgmental character.
Was there a connection? Was the romance believable? Not really, because every time Carson tried to get close to Georgia, she literally runs away, no matter where they were. So them suddenly having sex, was surprise to me, but an even bigger surprise was the ending.
So like said, I enjoyed the suspense, and Carson was absolutely a swoon worthy hero. So for that...
