He foolishly let her go…

When the woman he loved walked out of his life, Brooks Alexander was certain she did so willingly—with the cool two-million his father had offered as incentive to walk away. So when he learns that Darcy didn’t take a dime of his father’s payoff, Brooks realizes he made an epic mistake. He’s determined to make things right and reclaim his woman. Except neither task is as easily accomplished as he first thought.

Now her life is in his hands…

Wedding planner Darcy is no stranger to disappointment when it comes to the men in her life. When Brooks accused her of taking his father’s bribe, she was devastated that he thought so little of her—and realized he never knew her at all. So she walked away with her pride intact and her heart broken. Now, months later, an overheard conversation puts Darcy in the crosshairs of a dangerous criminal with powerful connections. With nowhere else to turn, she has no choice but to put all her trust in Redemption Harbor Consulting—and its cofounder, the man who broke her heart.

Brooks Alexander has watched two of his best friends find love and it makes him miss his "one that got away"...well the one he accused, made angry, and pushed away by not trusting her. So he is trying to find a way to apologize to her and get a chance to rectify his mistake. 

Darcy is busy with her wedding planning business and her sister's upcoming wedding. She was not expecting to see Brooks again, but he showed up just when she needed him. Although she is not ready to forget or forgive either. But when she finds herself a witness to something she should not have heard and seems to have some threats against her, she will need him and his friends' skills and connections to help her.

Brooks is not only a rich rancher, but also  capable as an operative. He is protective, possessive, and determined. His mission is not only to keep her safe and bring down the bad guys, but also to regain her trust. And as they are spending more time together, it makes them remember why they were so good together until he ruined it all. But Darcy has a lot on her plate and he broke her heart in the worst way. She is independent, feisty, loving, and strong-willed...and afraid to get hurt again. 

Will Brooks be able to get her out of a dire situation while also trying to win back her heart?

This was full of threats, antagonists, action, suspense, and danger. But it is also a story of forgiveness, trust, and second chances.

This brings back all of the characters from the first two books: Colt and Skye, Savage and Olivia, Mercer and Mary Grace, and also focuses on some of the other members of Redemption Harbor Consulting such as Gage, Nova, and Leighton. I really enjoy this group and how they push each other. They are smart, resourceful, protective, and operate on the fringes of the law but for the right reasons. I am looking forward to more books with Gage and Leighton hopefully.

I was gifted a copy by the publisher. 

Brooks Alexander made the biggest mistake of his life when he walked away from Darcy, and he knows it. He didn’t have the full story and jumped to conclusions, breaking the heart and trust of the only woman he wants.

Darcy hasn’t gotten over the hurt Brooks caused when he didn’t trust her, but she has tried to put him in her past. Her wedding planning business is growing steadily and keeps her from dwelling on her own heartbreak, too much. When she overhears a conversation that puts her in danger, she has nowhere to turn except to the man who broke her heart.

I love the way this story jumps right into the action and suspense while also building the chemistry and connection between Brooks and Darcy. Though they had been together before, they needed the time to build a bridge over their past. I felt like maybe some of their history had played out in a previous Redemption Harbor book (I haven’t read book 2) but enough of their history was recounted here that I didn’t feel like I missed anything. It was more a sense that events were already in motion.

The connection between them rebuilds in an organic, if abbreviated, manner. But part of what I love about romantic suspense is that the strong sense of danger amplifies all emotions and characters fall faster and harder. Because these two were involved in the past, their speedy time frame fits even better.

This book was filled with danger and suspense, forgiveness and second chances. It had me turning pages as fast as I could, completely engrossed in the agitation of what would happen if the danger caught up to Darcy. The Redemption Harbor Consulting crew is back, with some great interaction between all the men, as well as Olivia, Valencia, and Skye. This is a tight-knit group of friends that works hard and loves harder. 

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
