Her.Hawk’s been fighting his attraction to Dawn for as long as he can remember. She’s his best friend’s little sister, and that means hands-off.

But just as Hawk allows himself one mindblowingly intense night with Dawn, he learns that everyone he loves is in danger. Especially her.And the only way to protect Dawn is to push her away…
Review : Even though Rebecca Zanettiâs âOver the Topâ is the 4th Book of a series it was a comfortable Standalone read. The writing was flawless, fluent and the story idea was good.
I did not read the first 3 books, but I am pretty sure that there was some serious build up before Hawk and Dawn finally got their story in this 4th book. There were enough references to their previous encounters.
So I suspect that anyone following this series will expect to find something mayor within the pages of this book. But unfortunately the story could have given the reader so much more. I could not feel this âheatâ that was supposed to be there between Hawk and Dawn â there were hints and references written allover in the book but it was like hearsay and the feeling was not transported to me as a reader.
So in total it was an OK read as a standalone but I guess – I would not be surprised to hear if followers of the series are disappointed with the development of the book as a part of that series.
