Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does. He's never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries. But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis. Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb's resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.
Brynna is sick and tired of being afraid. All she wants is a normal, quiet life for her and her precious girls. Just as she's settling into her new home in Seattle and feeling safe again, Caleb shows up on her doorstep insisting the danger is as high as ever. But whether she needs to be sheltered from the threat in her past, or from the intense emotions she feels for the sexy, protective man sleeping in her home, remains to be seen. What will happen if Brynna and her girls fall in love with a man so broken he may not be able to protect them from the danger that threatens, much less himself?"
So I have finally reached this point in the series...when reading the next part of the series involves involuntary waiting. I hate this part but I just couldn't wait any longer to read Caleb and Brynna's story. Blame it on too much teasing from the previous books.
Finally, a man in uniform in the superfamily of the Montgomerys! Ever since reading about Caleb from the earlier books, I couldn't help but think about him as the brooding guy in this crazily beautiful family. It was finally great having to read his love story...which I really thought, well...wasn't. Because at the first mention of Brynna as a new character in the series, the first guy that came to mind that would be with her was Caleb's brother, Matt.
Ahhh, Matt. I cannot wait to read about you. But that's going to be a totally different story.
Well, I conclude that if there was someone in the brood that would mix well with kids, it was going to be Caleb. It was so sweet reading about his interaction with Brynna's twin daughters. For someone who can't see herself ever having kids, I was melting at their scenes. Gggggg. And oh, we had an explosive secret come out in this book that I did NOT see coming, that I did not expect from this series as whole. This was already the fifth book but I think things have just began to get interesting.
Once again, another satisfying read from KP in the true tradition of this series--funny, witty, sexy, and all-around feel good read but at the same time thrilling and heartbreaking where it mattered.
Final verdict: 8/10. Great read.
