Return to Haven Point, where New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne proves there's no sweeter place to fall in love
Protecting the streets of Haven Point isn't just a job for police officer Wyn Bailey, it's a family tradition. But lately she's found herself wanting more, especially from her boss—and overprotective brother's best friend—sexy chief of police, Cade Emmett. The only problem is getting Cade to view her as more than just a little sister.
Cade's hands-off approach with Wyn isn't from lack of attraction. But his complicated past has forced him to conceal his desire. When Wyn is harmed in the line of duty, Cade realizes the depth of his feelings, but can he let his guard down long enough to embrace the love he secretly craves?
Heartfelt, honest, and raw story, that pulled me in from the first moment, until I was completely lost in it. The story touched every emotion, from tears, to smile, sigh, and swoon, until I was laughing out loud. The small town spirit, the support and love they offer to each other, just touched me to the core. The family, with all the drama and trouble, yet loving and supporting when needed. And the police force, the lives of the small town officers, the duties, trouble, danger, and service they provide. Really, a tribute to the force, that so willingly puts themselves in danger, so we would be safe.
I admit, the first 8% of the book, I was a sobbing mess. The danger and angst, the fear and unthinkable possibilities, had on the edge, holding my breath.
The ambience the author has created is compelling. You want to be one of them, you want to share the danger, drama, troubles, and mundane tasks.
Wyn and Cade, they have the connection, they have the chemistry, they are attracted to each other, and the feelings they have, are palpable. But also forbidden. Something they know they can't act upon, something to be hidden. My heart went out to them, the struggles were tough, the denials hurtful. The pain they both still carry for losing her dad, and his mentor, was raw and constant. So much healing still needed to take place.
Characters you love, admire, and respect. Events that take you from lighthearted moment, to heart wrenching, to one filled with danger. I loved the flow in the tale, and how completely immersed I was in it (even though, my sunburn, skin might disagree :D) Marvelous tale, highly recommended!
