|Pierce Securities #7|
|June 05th 2017|
|Zack’s always been the funny guy, but with the deterioration of his sight and the loss of his father, the laughter has begun to dry up. Having recently discovered he has a brother due to his father’s infidelity, he’s questioning everything he thought he knew. To top it all off, the epic brush-off from Bonnie Pierce a few months back has Zack feeling less than a man.
Bonnie thought she’d feel better about herself after giving Zack a taste of his own medicine, but all it did was stoke an old flame, bringing up feelings she probably shouldn’t explore. When she ends up embroiled in his current case, they both realize their pasts are about to set their worlds afire.
The guest house behind Simon’s home has become her gilded cage, and Bonnie resents her brothers’ overprotectiveness even though they mean well. When Zack stumbles upon her horrific secret, she has no choice but to turn to the man she’s always loved.
In the end, Zack struggles to be enough of a man to protect the woman he has finally gotten a second chance with, even though he can’t see her.
I guess this series of standalones does not really work well as standalones. While the story of each novel might be standing alone – the characters are so involved with each other that the writing style of the author does not really allow reading the books in any other order than from 1 to the end … I made the mistake to start in the middle and therefore my reading “pleasure” is not that great. No mistakes please the writing itself is intriguing and fresh yet do yourself a favor and start from book 1 …. When I find the time I will do that myself as I really love “damaged” characters and it seems there is a ton of those in this series 🙂
