Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I have gone on to read the rest of the Keller Family Series. It’s one of those series where you want to keep revisiting the characters and the family because you fall for all of them.

I loved the characters in this story – Zach and Regan had me hooked and wanting to know what was going to happen. The plot kept moving forward and was well paced and I liked all of the side characters. John Forrester was great!

I did find some minor plot issues to be a bit unbelievable. For example, the main character, Regan, has been beaten severely by an ex-boyfriend. When Zach shows up where she doesn’t expect him early on in the book, she is startled and the author kind of mentions that she is shaken up by it, but it isn’t believable. If she had been nearly beaten to death by a man who snuck up on her only a year earlier, she would be shaky and sick to her stomach and pale as a ghost if a man she didn’t know well did that to her again.  There were a few little things like that along the way that I had trouble swallowing.

The other thing that kept this from being a five star review was the editing. In all of the Keller books, the editing is poor. There are typos throughout that slow down the flow of the book.

In spite of these issues, I truly enjoyed the book and I quickly plowed through the rest of the series. I am reading book four right now and loving it. I definitely recommend picking this one up. It’s free at the time of this rewview so hurry up and grab it!
