I think this is of the the slowest burns by Mary B Moore I have ever read, but it was worth the wait.  Layal and Mak hav been circling around eachtoher through Moore’s entire backlist and we FINALLY get their story.

These are two people who have loved each other forever, who everyone who has read about them knows that they have loved each other forever, but have been pulled apart by hurts and lack of communication. But Mark is done waiting and outs the fact that they have been married for years. 

This story is the tow of them finding their way back to each other.  Neither one has lost love for the other, but they need to figure out how to exist in their new reality and also open up to each other.  You get the typical Townsend-Montgomery chaos that Moore thrives in and you will NOT be disappointed. I adore this author and the families that she has created both DNA and found.  You are doing yourself a dis-service by not reading her right now!
