*****Maryann Jordan's sixth book and third in the Love series. She has taken two of my favorite things hot alpha males and second chance romances and rolled them into one awesome book. ***** I would give this more than 5 stars if possible. This is a stand alone but these characters were first introduced in the Fairfield Series as teenagers. Besides a love story, this book is filled with suspense, action and mystery. In true MaryAnn Jordan style, she brings in characters from past books we love and has us falling for the new ones that we can't wait to find out more about their story.
