In a steamy small town riddled with broken promises, one woman's secret could change everything.
Acting Sheriff Ben Logan hasn't heard from Leigh Somerall in a very long time, but it doesn't mean he can get her--or their whirlwind romance of ten years ago--out of his head. When she calls out of the blue, it is with a strange request to protect her brother, Tony. But all too soon, Ben is charged with a different task--protecting Leigh from the people after her brother. With Leigh doing everything in her power to avoid Ben, it's no easy task. And the secret she is keeping just may change their lives forever.

This book was not one of my favorites. I felt the story was not original. I also felt there were critical conversations between Ben and Leigh were missing.
This book was also very unrealistic. The author expects you to believe that Leigh went to college, then went onto medical school and got a job as a doctor all while raising a baby with no delays. I am not saying that it would be impossible to do this, but I think it would be very difficult and parts of your education process would be delayed. As a single mom, who had her baby when she was 19, I can tell you that it took me longer to get my degree.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
