This is a first for me by Deeanne Gist.
Though through the first half I was able to easily set this book down and not pick it up for a few days, once I hit the half point mark I completed the rest of the book in one night. Bypass the sleep. Bypass the housework. I just had to finish!
The characters unfold slowly, but fully. You get a glimpse deep into each other of them by the end of the book.
Rylee is hard not to fall in love with. What deep hurts she has carried around all her life. Trust doesn't come easy, but who of us that have been hurt deeply by someone we love so much, can open up our hearts to someone so easily. Especially in a trying time in our life.
I had a few people in mind of who could be "Robin Hood", I was totally surprised when it is revealed, as that person was not on my list.
Great read. You can't go wrong if you like romantic suspense!
