4 out of 5 Stars
Seeing Adam Waters is the last thing veterinarian Megan Young expects. Ex-Marine. Ex-boyfriend. And still extremely dangerous territory. But Adam doesn’t know the secret Megan has been keeping from him. The secret that was created three years ago, after their last night together...Adam returns to Raven’s Cove to sell his home in a final break with the town and memories that haunt him. The problem is that his attraction to Megan is as blazing hot as it ever was. But when a vicious smear campaign against Megan turns ugly, Adam learns the truth he never knew—he has a son. Now the only way Megan can protect her child is to strike a bargain with Adam. And it’s a bargain that looks a lot like blackmail...
  This was a really enjoyable read. With interesting characters and a sweet yet sexy romance, it was easy to get lost in this book and I read it straight through. It was a light read that was fast paced and entertaining.
  Adam is an Ex-Marine, with a past. He feels that he is undeserving of love and has spent most of his adult life trying to prove himself, while pushing Megan away. Megan has been burned by Adam twice, and after the last time she's vowed to give him what he wants and leave him alone. Only the last time produced their son...Her choice was a difficult one, definitely not what I would have chosen, but at the time she knew he didn't want a family so she just didn't tell him that she was pregnant. Fast forward to present day and Adam is in town for a few weeks and wants to make amends, even though he's still not looking for a relationship.
  I think one of my favorite things about this book were the characters. I loved Adam, he's been through a lot and I do love a tortured hero! I want to know if there will be any more books about the other ex-marines, I know I'd love to read more! Jennifer Apodaca does an excellent job of making them feel real. The characters were very believable and even decisions that the characters made, while not the ones I would have chosen, were still very understandable. Highly recommended if you like a good contemporary romance, with a really good Happily Ever After.
