    When reading this book I got the nagging sense that I am missing a coupling things and after Reading it found out that I was reading the 5th book in the series Oops It did good as a stand alone but I think It would ve been a whole lot better reading experience if I read the previous books That being said I thought that this was a really good mystery book I loved getting to see Ediths character, she really was a hard working stubborn women I loved getting to know their back stories which made their characters even interesting I loved the spark between the two main characters I loved that not only did I get the the two main characters POV but the mystery intruders thoughts as well made it creepy seeing that view I loved that there was plenty going on in this book o keep things interesting and overall it was a really enjoyable book, Thinking about getting the previous books to see what happened before.

    Good book In Pregnant by the Colton Cowboy River discovered that the man he thought is his father isn t, leaving him with questions about who he is Determined to find answers, he s sure that his family s former home holds the answers All he has to do is find a way inside so that he can search When the house is sold, he talks the new owner s representative into letting him help with the renovations.Edith has worked for her real estate mogul boss and friend for years She s not certain why he s so determined to have this property considering how much work it will be to fix it up, and why he insists on so much secrecy Because of that, she is suspicious of River s presence on the property at first but quickly takes him up on his offer to help.Good mix of suspense and romance right from the start There were multiple things going on that kept interest and tension high Throughout the series, Livia Colton has succeeded in avoiding recapture There have been sightings and suspected activities, but her evasion continues More and of her crimes have been exposed Edith s arrival at the property begins another intense episode Edith s introduction to the house her employer has purchased began with a frightening experience that set the stage for the entire book, highlighting her dedication to her job and her stubborn independence River is equally stubborn in his desire to find answers, and later in his determination to protect Edith Edith s employer adds another layer of mystery as his reasons for buying the mansion are slowly revealed Last, but not least, is the mysterious watcher who is so intent on keeping people out of the house.I loved River s protectiveness as he responded first to Edith s scream, and throughout the book as the attacks continued to escalate There is no doubt about the chemistry between him and Edith, though both have issues that make them reluctant to give in Edith has problems with trust and believing that love really exists She is suspicious of River at first but gradually comes to trust him River is haunted by things that happened on deployment, plagued by guilt that he hadn t done enough to keep his men safe He also believes that no one would want him now because of his scars I loved seeing the two of them grow closer as they worked together on the house I ached a bit for River, whose insecurities were aggravated by his jealousy over what he thought was the relationship between Edith and Declan I also hurt for Edith, whose fears caused her to push River away when she really wanted to keep him close The revelations of both Declan s and River s motivations felt like a betrayal to her It took some hard won honesty to finally put the past to rest and let River and Edith look to a future together.The suspense of the intruder was very well done, with their point of view adding another layer of intensity I could feel Edith s unease at the way she felt she was being watched, especially knowing that she really was The escalating nature of the attacks increased the feeling of danger and kept me on the edge of my seat The end confrontation was intense but left some things unresolved for the next book.I enjoyed seeing other members of the family as they made appearances in this story I especially enjoyed seeing of Knox and his contemplation of a future job Mac was also a big part of this book, as he and Edith take steps to repair their relationship We also see of Jade, who is now the only unattached Colton She is convinced that Livia is after her and the fear makes a huge impact on her life I m looking forward to her story.

    I had not read the other books and I was able to follow this one very well The underlying story in the series is that their mom is missing and she is wanted by the FBI for murder There was also enough storyline around the other siblings that would make you want to purchase those stories also.Definitely some revelations happened in the book and Edith and River try to fight their attraction to each other Edith has a mysterious boss who becomes a little known in this book A bonus was that I love the cover Sexual content one physical scene, chemistry throughoutViolence nothing disturbing, accidents, held at gunpointLanguage D mn 51 times, b tch 3, nothing strongeralcohol drug no drugs, might have been drinking, nothing noticeable.
