He’s determined to uncover all her secrets, at any cost.
India Gale had it all—a coveted job, a fancy Manhattan apartment, and a privileged life. But a tragic accident took almost everything. Consumed with guilt and hounded by the media, she retreats to Glacier Creek, Montana, to rebuild. She plans to keep to herself, until a stranger arrives in town—a ruggedly handsome newcomer who makes her knees tremble and resolutions to remain alone crumble.
Former Special Ops soldier Lucas Talbot spent his childhood summers in Glacier Creek. He has one more mission to complete to finally bring his mother, and himself, peace—discover why his stepfather was with India the night he died, and why she received a fifty million dollar settlement afterward. He isn’t prepared to find a sweet, vulnerable woman who brings out his protective instincts and makes him long to claim her for his own.
But when India discovers the truth, will it destroy her newfound happiness and Lucas’ chance for love?

This book features the classic enemies to lovers romance trope that we all enjoy reading because as they say there’s a fine line between love and hate and at first these two characters definitely don’t like each other. Lucas is a good guy who has been put in the position of finding dirt on India. Little does he know that she’s the victim in this story. Their budding relationship and the slow revelation of what really happened on the tragic night that brought these two characters together is guaranteed to change them both forever. This is great storytelling combined with sympathetic characters and a mystery that slowly unfolds in a way that kept me intrigued, entertained and hoping for a happily-ever-after and I wasn’t disappointed. I read a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
