Once again, secrets don’t stay secret in the south. And the secret in this book is a not one that I was expecting. OH MY…when it finally comes to light, and the reactions of everyone around it was extremely well done. Asher has been slowly being integrated into this family for the last six months. Amelia feels things for him that she doesn’t want to feel because of a past relationship gone bad. There are little clues through the book about what it might be, but when you find out what her aversion to relationships and letting people is, you just want to hold her close and knock someone out….but just wait justice is serves in a way you will appreciate. These characters are broken in their own way, but they heal each other in ways neither one of them were expecting. They are better together than apart, but each are strong and independent on their own. They don’t NEED each other, but they are better versions of themselves with the support behind them. This series just continues to break me down and put me back together.
