She doesn't trust him.
Zoe Costas is a security specialist. Her rather dubious family runs an Atlantic City spa that’s just this side of legit. When charming Ryan Baldwin shows up claiming to be related to Sam, the girl Zoe’s family is about to adopt, Zoe isn’t inclined to trust his handsome face.
But he’s here to stay.
Ryan’s search for his missing sister has led him to news of her death, and to a niece he’s never met. He’s from the famously rich and snooty Boston Baldwins — nothing like Zoe’s eccentric family from Jersey. But someone else has also tracked Sam down — someone who never wanted his niece to be found.
Ryan is determined to protect Sam and find out what really happened to his sister. And Zoe is just the woman to help him do it. Neither expects they might find love in the process.

Book 2 is just as fun as the 1st one. Twin sister Zoe is helping her family with a potential new sister, but new guy Ryan is the girl’s family and may bring trouble.
With this family trouble also equals fun times!
Zoe & Ryan opposites attract!
The second book in the series continues to have its characters dig deep inside themselves to learn how to deal with there complex emotions. Deciding to adopt a teenager when their adult children have moved out is not unusual for the Costas family. They live outside the box on a good day, and have skirted legal lines in the past. Turning 30, Zoe doesn’t believe she will find love like her parents and twin sister have. She just doesn’t think she is made for that depth of feelings. Meeting Ryan causes her to examine her life while dealing with the possible changes that could take place at home. Questioning weather opposites attract, differences in family expectations, and the possibility of compromising in the future sends Zoe running into her work for too many hours a day. Ryan is mare patient than he seems, but seems to read others well and is in it for the long game. Can they live with or without each other, only time will tell.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is book 2 in the Costas Sisters series and it features Zoe, Ryan and Sam. I love Zoe! She likes to live her life HER way, no matter what anyone says. Luckily her family is the Costas. As far as her and Ryan, all the right words and actions were there but I failed to feel the connection until much, much later in the story. My heart broke for all Sam had been through. She’s such a wonderful girl and I liked the special way she tested people.
Again, not my favorite by this author but it is a highly entertaining story with fantastic characters.
