“Count on Lori Foster for sexy, edgy romance.” — Jayne Ann Krentz , New York Times bestselling author

He had it all planned…until she showed up.

Jedidiah Stephens came to the Colorado Rockies for one to uncover the truth behind the fire that killed her family. She’s been chasing down clues, and everything has led her to an isolated campground. Her plan is to get a job there so she can investigate who comes and goes. Getting involved with her boss, Memphis Osborn, the ruggedly handsome groundskeeper, is definitely not part of the plan.

When Jedidiah arrives on the scene, Memphis just knows she's up to something. He can see the desperation in her eyes and warily agrees to hire her. As they work side by side, Diah triggers his deepest protective instincts—and the chemistry between them ignites.

But the more Diah digs into her family’s past, the more secrets she unravels…and the more afraid she becomes. She lost everything once before. She’ll never forgive herself if now she loses Memphis, too.

“….your eyes are incredible, but they’re just a reflection of you,”

Memphis Osborn is a very smart man. So when Diah Stephens arrives at his campgrounds looking for a job, he can see right through her. Diah has her reasons for insisting that Memphis hire her. Although she starts off being a woman of mystery, apparently being all alone in the world, she did not show up at Memphis’s campgrounds by happenstance. She is there for a reason, but Memphis does not let that get in the way of growing quite fond of her. 

Diah isn’t alone. She is there with her faithful dog Tuff, and he has been a strong source of comfort to her. It doesn’t take Diah long to see that her relationship with Memphis can be more than employer and employee. However, her guard is up, and hiding behind her sunglasses throws a shield between her and anyone she comes across. However, Memphis just has to look into Diah’s eyes to see what an amazingly warm woman she is. 

This may be a romance, but Lori Foster has an incredible way of making the story personal. She really pulled at my heartstrings when it came to Diah. While thoroughly engaged with regard to the romance between Memphis and Diah, I loved the sense of intrigue as it increased as the book was reaching its stunning climax. I am loving this Osborn Brothers series and cannot wait tofor the next book. 

Many thanks to HQN Books and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
