    Izzy Zanella wasn’t looking for another reason to butt heads with his Navy SEAL teammate, and nemesis, Danny Gillman. But then he met Danny’s beautiful younger sister, Eden. When she needed it most, he offered her a place to stay, a shoulder to cry on - and more. And when she got pregnant with another man’s child, he offered her marriage. But Eden’s devastating miscarriage shattered their life together - and made the intense bad blood between Izzy and Danny even worse. Now Eden’s back, and she’s on a mission to rescue her teen brother, Ben, from their abusive stepfather.

    Overall

    As always, Brockmann's book is awesome and so is the narration by Lawlor and Raudman. Yes there are topics that are uncomfortable; child abuse in many situatations both in the present of the book and in the characters past, alcoholism, etc... But the book is also about communication and miscommunication, trust and not trusting. I don't believe that Brockmann is portraying and anti-christianity message. I think her characters usually either believe in God (in the Christian sense) or come to some kind of understanding with a "God"-like power. There is only one minor character in the book that seems to use Christianity as an excuse for evil. The religious beliefs or lack of belief of most of the other characters (including the main characters) is a mystery to the reader/listener.

    Each character has a very clear voice in the writing and in the narration of the audio version. The story flows and is exciting. And sometimes the characters are annoying, which is one of the reasons why I love them so much. Like real people they make sometimes dumb decisions and sometimes great ones. And like all of us they struggle with themselves and getting to an understanding their place in life and who they are.

    The narrators are superb. They create a world where it is very easy to understand each point of view and when that point of view shifts. The format of having a male and female narrator works so well for all of Brockmann???s books. Her stories are more interesting due to the shifts in points of view and the way that each characters ???voice??? shows through. I really like the domestic tensions in this book. It puts a different spin on the thrilling romance part of the story. They story is excellent and different than the other books in the series. I find it amazing that after 16 books, I will be first in line for book #17 when Brockmann returns to writing about this incredible group of people.
