Ryker Tillman was on the team that brought Olivia's late husband and her brother to justice, he follows his instincts, offering his protection to Olivia Habush and her son from mercenaries hot on their heels.
Fast paced, with great characters and relationship building, with a layered plot that had me on the edge of my seat. Olivia and Ryker were both people that I could cheer for throughout and I love how they both grew in their faith, and have supportive friends in their lives. I admired Olivia, she is courageous, her new faith is tested, and she is an excellent mother, fighting to keep them safe.
Ryker has been a lone wolf for a long time, but he fits right in with Olivia and Aaron. Aaron is an adorable 3 year old, and he takes to Ryker almost instantly. I admired Ryker's determination as well as his honesty with himself and willingness to take on new adventures.
I loved the intensity in this book, there is so much going on, and the plot kept me guessing, it was far from straightforward or predictable! I loved how this story builds on the backstory, but doesn't revolve around it, it instead expands on it, making it simply a jumping off point.Yet this high action energy is balanced with tender moments of faith, love, and friendship, which is one of the reasons Laura Scott is one of my favorite Love Inspired authors.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
